Hi howdy, I'm HibiscusCrown20! I'm an American wiki editor with autism who has logos as one of her interests. I'm particularly interested in logos from foreign countries like Argentina and logos that seem to use audio or visuals from other sources without permission.

Logos I personally like
- DMS Video (UK) - Oof, the animation on this logo has not aged well in the slightest, I know. However, in spite of its cheesiness and datedness, this logo is admittedly a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine because the graphics and animation lowkey remind me of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's Super FX chip.
- Films Incorporated (1968 - 1989) - TBA.
- The UNC Center for Public Television / UNC-TV (1979 - 1983) - TBA.
- Pyramid Films / Pyramid Media (Early 1980s - present) - This logo may look like it came from the mid/late 90's and has really nice animation, but this was reportedly made in the early 80's! It's absolutely crazy how advanced the animation for this logo, which was done by Information International, Inc., was for its time, and even today it still looks pretty good! I also really like the music used for it!
- Alan Landsburg Productions (1971 - 1975) - It's definitely a simple logo, but what makes me like this logo is the smooth animation of the letters and the admittedly catchy synth jingle. Those two elements definitely make this logo stand out to me!
- Pony Canyon (1989 - 1996) - This logo is an absolute trip and could cause eyestrain or seizures in sensitive individuals, but this logo is one of those things that are just so insane that it's good. There'so much random and utterly nonsensical (redacted) going on throughout the entire thing that I can't help but love it, and the outdated CG animation definitely helps.
Logos I personally dislike
- Anchor Bay Entertainment (2016 - 2017), and all Starz/Encore logos (post-2016) - Talk about the definition of lazy and low-effort. All they show is the logo flashing into existence above a glow on the floor and on a black background, and this exact format is used across several different logos. These logos look like a slightly-more polished version of something that you could make in iMovie. The final Anchor Bay Entertainment logo especially doesn't sit well with me, as it is such a massive downgrade from the logos used from 1998 to 2006 and 2003 to 2008. Sucks quite a bit that the company went out on a whimper in the logo department.
- Class Video - Slow, choppy animation, very poor audio quality and an overly long runtime of approximately a minute make for a classless logo that also happens to be quite a snoozefest, too.
- Cyclo Video (second logo, 1983) - The first half of the logo with the fan forming isn’t terrible, but the animation of the second half is very choppy and laggy-feeling, with the fan colors awkwardly disappearing entirely and sometimes even leaving behind remnants, which I feel ruined what would have been an alright low-budget logo.
- Enterprise Producciones - "Blatant content theft" is what perfectly describes this logo. As has been pointed out by others many, many, many times, it blatantly steals the audio and visuals of Prism Entertainment's first logo and, in the case of the audio, also poorly and obviously loops it past a certain point. Even the minuscule amount of actually original content in this logo looks poor with the slowly-appearing lines and choppy animation of "ENTERPRISE" sliding in.
- HC2 Holdings/DTV America Station IDs - Okay, I get that these IDs are for low-power stations that certainly don't have a sizable budget, but couldn't the people who designed these IDs have at least put a bit more effort into them than just adding a Powerpoint transition over a bland graphic with the callsign and other station info and calling it a day? These IDs look and feel very lazy, to say the least.
- Melisa Video - The design of the logo itself actually looks really cool, but, in motion, it falls flat. It goes on for over 30 seconds, and much of the runtime is just random effects being applied to the logo. How exciting. It reminds me of those crappy “logo effects” videos that litter logo YouTube or, as SENF and No. pointed out, a poorly-made YouTube Poop.
- Mr. Video (1982? - 1985) - While the music itself is actually pretty good and a bit catchy, I’m afraid I can’t say the same for the visual portion. All it really consists of is the “Mr Video PRESENTS” text rapidly flashing in and out of existence in front of a purple-pink glow, and this goes on for forty seconds straight.
- Photo Video (1988?) - Why the hell is there random footage of fireworks? Why the hell are there sequences with random patterns being formed? What the hell is with the eye-straining trailing? Why the hell does it go on for nearly two minutes? This is my pick for my least favorite logo of all time for those reasons.
- Speedy Video (1996 - 2009?) - The ground and sky put together look absolutely disgusting. The sky is some repugnant shade of dark green while the ground is brown with a texture that looks like it came from a Nintendo 64 game, and even that's pushing it because even Nintendo 64 games like The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time still have better-looking ground textures in comparison! The animation of the metal man running is also laughably bad, and the music is very cheesy. It's pretty crazy that this particular logo was used for as long as it was.
- Summit Entertainment (April 19, 2018-February 8, 2019) - Another Lionsgate-owned company that had a massive downgrade in the logo department. It's just the text "SUMMIT ENTERTAINMENT" floating in the sky that turns around and becomes the byline "A LIONSGATE COMPANY", which lasts longer than the actual logo, for some reason. I'd say it's a bit better than the psot-2018 Anchor Bay Entertainment and Starz/Encore logos, but it's still a bad logo.
