Entertainment One (Canada)
Entertainment One (also spelled as "eOne" and formerly Koch Entertainment and E1 Entertainment) began operations in 1973 as the music distributor ROW (Records on Wheels) in Canada, and was renamed to Entertainment One Fund. In June 2005 it acquired Koch Entertainment, thus expanding their distribution network in Canada and US. Throughout the years, eOne built regional home entertainment divisions in the UK (based on Contender Entertainment Group and Maximum Entertainment), Benelux (based on RCV Entertainment), and Canada (formerly Seville Pictures). In 2008, eOne also purchased the minor television companies Oasis International, Blueprint Entertainment and Barna-Alper. Since 2007, eOne has been distributing films for cinemas. They later acquired Hopscotch Films and Alliance Films in 2013, and Phase 4 Films and Force Four in 2014. In 2019, after Hasbro acquired Entertainment One, future properties began using the eOne name, absorbing the Allspark name with it.
1st Logo (2009-2010)
Logo: On a dark space background with a blue color scheme, we see the planet Earth, which is tinted in blue and rotates slowly. As we zoom in and the planet brightens up, we see a large structure on it. As the planet rotates more, we see that it is the large letters "E1", shone by dots of light in the letters. Several beams of light shine behind the planet, which becomes solid, and as "E1" gets to a comfortable position, the logo is compressed into a box and "ENTERTAINMENT" fades in below. The light lines continue to shine and move across the planet.
- There is a still version can be found on TV shows and some trailers for E1-released movies. It is bigger and resembles the print version.
- A short version exists.
- 2 in-credit versions exist. One is the standard logo, and the other is a variant where the word "KIDS" replaces "ENTERTAINMENT".
FX/SFX: The planet rotating and revealing "E1".
Music/Sounds: An ascending triumphant fanfare. Sometimes, it's the opening/closing theme of the movie.
Availability: Rare, as this logo was rather short-lived. It can be seen on DVD releases and films from the company during the era. It also appears on some TV series, such as Humf. Also appears on Peppa Pig Fun & Games for Nintendo DS. The normal in-credit variant appears on The Dating Guy, while the "KIDS" one appears on series 3 of Peppa Pig.
Editor's Note: None.
2nd Logo (2010-2016)
Logo: On a black background, we see a dark sphere surrounded by a blue light. An "e" then rises up from the sphere. Then the letter and sphere start to zoom out and shift to the left, while "ne" slide in from behind the sphere to the right. As the logo zooms out, the sphere becomes an "o", the letters become boxed, the box turns blue, and the word "entertainmentone" in blue wipes in to the right below the box.
- On TV shows, the logo appears sped-up.
- An in-credit version exists with a green square sticking out with the word "family".
- 2 other short versions of this logo exist. The first one has the last part after the text wipes in, and the 2nd one is an even shorter version of this.
- There is also a still version. On some DVD and Blu-Ray releases, there is text below that reads "OUT NOW ON DVD & BLU-RAY DISC" with the Blu-Ray Disc logo.
FX/SFX: The letters coming, zooming and wiping out.
- 2010-2013: Same as the previous logo, but re-arranged to be a bit more majestic.
- 2013-2015: The 2004 Alliance Atlantis fanfare.
- On some shows, it uses the end theme.
Availability: Common. Originally was considered uncommon and could be seen on the trailers for eOne shows/movies, TV shows like Rookie Blue and The Firm, and various DVDs distributed in the UK, Canada, the Netherlands and the US. Since eOne gained distribution forces, the logo became much more widespread. Strangely, this appears on American Netflix and Hulu prints of Waste Land, despite that film being distributed in America through Arthouse Films and eOne only distributing it in Canada--and even more strange is that the logo's audio is louder than the rest of the movie. The logo also shows up on Crackle's print of Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, preceding the Warner Bros. logo. The still version can be found on a few episodes of Rob the Robot and some other shows. The short version can be also found on Rob the Robot, with the even shorter one appearing on The Magic Hockey Skates. The in-credit "family" version appears on series 4 of Peppa Pig.
Editor's Note: None.
3rd Logo (2015-)
Logo: The logo starts in a similar fashion to the previous logo. Some rings zoom out and place themselves near the top of the O. The rings and the O turn and reveal the front of the square the O is in, the letters "ne" to the right of the O, and a background of zooming squares. The letters in "entertainment" zoom out and place themselves by the square the O is in. After a few seconds, a giant square turns, revealing a black background and one singular "e" and encasing the "One" in it. The final result reads "eOne."
- TV shows have the logo shortened.
- 2 in-credit versions exist. One is the "eOne" logo in white, and the other is the full "entertainment one" logo with it's original colors.
- A still version exists.
FX/SFX: Amazing CGI!
Music/Sounds: The 2004 Alliance Atlantis fanfare with a short drumroll after the first few notes and whooshes with the zoom outs. It's shortened on television shows.
Availability: Current. First seen before the trailers of movies made by them, or, outside of the United States, studios such as Lionsgate, Focus Features, or The Weinstein Company. The first TV show on which this logo appeared was PJ Masks on Disney Junior in US and Kids' CBC in Canada. Also seen on the 3rd season of Bitten. The white in-credit version appears on Peppa Pig starting from series 5, while the full name one can be found on Alien TV. The still version of the logo began appearing on Grey's Anatomy since season 15 after Mark Gordon became the president of the company, as well as on episodes of Ransom on CBS. On Hasbro shows, this can be currently seen on My Little Pony: Pony Life on Discovery Family in the United States and Treehouse in Canada.
