Note: Not to be confused with Acme Productions.


Background: Acme Filmworks is an animation studio founded in 1990 in Hollywood, CA by Wendy Tilby and Amanda Forbis. One of the works they did was provide the green screen effects for Drew Carey's Green Screen Show and also animated the logo for Carey's production company International Mammoth Television.

(October 7, 2004-November 8, 2005)

Acme FilmworksLogo: On a jungle green background, two yellowpresses come from the left and right and meet at the left of the screen and form the word "Acme" (while it stretches in place) with the presses going off-screen up and down respectively. Then a vertical line of black circles appears next to "Acme" and stretches in "Film" and disappearing but the one circle with the word inside. After that, two vermillion rectangles come in from the left and right and form the word "works" next to the circle and leaving the rectangle. While that last bit of animation goes on, "Hollywood, CA" folds in below the logo.

FX/SFX: The animation of the press and shapes.

Music/Sounds: A bass tune with three synth notes in each timing with the formation of the words.

Availability: Extinct. Only appeared on Drew Carey's Green Screen Show, which hasn't been reran since 2005.

Editor's Note: None.
