    A company called Smileyworld Ltd. owns the copyright on yellow smiley faces. This caused problems in the Watchmen fan community when Smileyworld refused to let Warner Bros. release memorabilia involving the series' famous bloodstained smiley logo. Smileyworld's copyright can been seen on at the end of the movie's trailers and on its posters.

    Oh, and the blood on the smiley pin from Watchmen wasn't from a character's t-shirt... it was from a character being thrown through the window of a skyscraper and falling to the ground. Splat.

    • Walmart.
    • There was a restaurant in Cincinnati that was called Have A Nice Day that was covered in smileys. The restaurant may still be there, it has been a while.

    The movie Dazed And Confused used a stoned Smiley Face on its poster.

    Boss Smiley from Neil Gaiman's Endless has a smiley face for a head.

    The multiplatform game Faceball 2000 was all about smiley faces in a maze shooting each other.

    Yeah - the smiley from Watchmen isn't from a t-shirt. It's a pin, with blood on it.

    Doesn't the kid working at the newsstand get like, ketchup or something on his shirt with the yellow smiley on it too, though? I vaguely remember that, but maybe it was from a webcomic...

    Oh, yeah, that too. There's a scene at the end where what seems to be the two-man staff of a right-wing newspaper gets Rorschach's journal, and one of them is wearing a smiley face t-shirt and spills ketchup across it.

    Fatboy Slim. Just.. Fatboy Slim.

    And for that matter, all of the acid house and ecstasy scene from between 1988 and 1998.

    Mick Foley used the smiley sometimes in his Mankind character; he also used "Have a nice day" as his Catchphrase.

    The film Evolution seems to have... er... appropriated the 3-eyed smiley from Warren Ellis' comic Transmetropolitan.
