1st Logo (August 28, 1996-May 17, 1998)

Bent Outta Shape: 1996-2001Nicknames: "The Hammock", "Bentley's Hammock", "The Hammock Text", "Bent Dogg!"

Logo: In front of a sky that reflects on a hard reflective surface, we see two palm trees planted in the reflection . Between the two palm trees (of which a coconut falls from the tree on the right side of the screen) is a hammock, on which lies an animated version of Bentley Kyle Evans with short, dark hair and a dark mustache wearing a yellow long-sleeved shirt, dark blue shorts, and white sneakers. The string of the hammock has the phrase "BENT OUTTA SHAPE" on it in the Balloon Extra Bold font curved underneath the hammock, where Bentley turns to the viewer(s) and winks his eye. The word "PRODUCTIONS" is below the hammock in a thick blocky font, which reflects on the water like the sky does.

FX/SFX: The clouds moving in the sky, the coconut falling from the palm tree on the right side of the screen to the reflective surface next to the letter "S" in the word "PRODUCTIONS", and the animated Bentley Kyle Evans turning his head from the sky to look at the viewers and wink his right eye.

Music/Sounds: A man with a deep, electronically-enhanced voice says "Bent Dogg!" with the sound of a coconut falling to the ground. On syndicated prints of The Jamie Foxx Show, Jamie Foxx's closing jingle, "Electrifying (Baby, That's Real)" plays in the background throughout the entire four-way logo combo.

Availability: Seen exclusively on The Jamie Foxx Show (currently airing on BET and Vh1).

Editor's Note: None.


2nd Logo (September 17, 1998-January 14, 2001)

Nicknames: "The Hammock II", "Bentley's Hammock II", "Robotic Bent Dogg!"

Logo: A different version of the logo appeared with very noticeable differences, the "BENT OUTTA SHAPE" and the "PRODUCTIONS" is in yellow in a 2D like style, the background is in a tropical beach with the water behind Evans with a shark's fin sticking out, the trees are a tropical tree with still, the coconut falling off on the tree to the right, and Evans is also more cartoon-ish and in both a light tan shirt and pants and with sandals.

FX/SFX: The clouds moving in the sky, and a coconut falling from the palm tree on the right side of the screen.

Music/Sounds: A robotic (vocoded) male vocalist sings the words "Bent Dogg!" with the sound of a coconut falling to the ground. On syndicated prints of The Jamie Foxx Show, Jamie Foxx's closing jingle, "Electrifying (Baby, That's Real)" plays in the background throughout the entire four-way logo combo. Or on some 1999 episodes a electric guitar tune is played but it cuts to the Foxx Hole Productions.

Availability: Seen exclusively on The Jamie Foxx Show on Centric.

Editor's Note: None.
