Olive Films logo

Nicknames: "The Bug", "The Olive Bug"

Logo: An olive-colored bug is seen with "Olive" in white and "Films" in grey. "Olive" then disappears and "Films" turns olive. The bug's eyes start to move, along with other parts of its body. "Olive" reappears and the entire logo turns white, starts to blur, then turns grey and fades like a filmstrip ending.

FX/SFX: The bug moving, the colors changing and the fade out effect.

Music/Sounds: Some weird whirring sound, followed by sudden buzzing at the end. Otherwise, it's silent.

Availability: This logo can be seen on DVD and Blu-ray releases from the company, such as Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956 version), Knock on Wood, Rock-a-Doodle, Daisy: A Hen Into the Wild, Cujo and The Boogens, among others. This logo may also be seen on theatrical re-releases from the company.
