[-[[caption-width-right:300:Creator/{{Fox}} [[BitingTheHandHumor shoots down yet another]] [[StealthPun promising pilot]].]]-]

Some studios have {{vanity plate}}s that are [[IconicLogo recognized everywhere]]. The moment you see a ring of stars swirling into place above a serene-looking mountain, for example, you know you're looking at a Creator/{{Paramount}} production. That little kid who tosses a fishing line into the water while sitting in the crook of the moon is instantly recognizable as Creator/DreamWorks. Such logos, once they climb to a certain point of universal recognition and cause [[{{Universal}} a globe to spin on the movie screens]], are a sure fire form of brand name recognition.

Every once in a while, though, a creator will have fun with it. The VanityPlate will be changed in some way, just enough to put a new spin on it usually being tied into the movie it's featured in. {{Match Cut}}s are also a common form of this. More rarely, the logo will show up in a scene in the middle of the show.

A very specific type of inside joke. A subtrope of SpecialEditionTitle. More examples in the [=IMDb=]'s [[http://www.imdb.com/Sections/CrazyCredits/ Crazy Credits]] section, or at the [[http://www.closinglogos.com/page/Logo+Variations Closing Logos Group Wiki]]

!!Examples:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:TwentiethCenturyFox]]
* The 75th Anniversary logo in 2010[[note]]referring to the merger of the Fox Film Corporation and Twentieth Century Pictures into 20th Century Fox in 1935, rather than the founding of Fox in 1915[[/note]] ends with a giant "75" lit up in the sky by searchlights while the camera pans up to highlight it. Because of this, the News Corporation Company byline and the ® sign were engraved onto the structure, because by the time they fade in normally, the logo would be already gone.
* The second to last note of the ''Film/{{Alien 3}}'' ident is [[LastNoteNightmare held for several seconds, rising in crescendo, before cutting off abruptly.]] (This variation can be heard on the soundtrack album for ''Film/{{Predator}}''.)
* The trailer of ''[[Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel]]'': Alvin appears on one of the searchlights singing along to the fanfare. Simon and Theodore stand nearby singing along as well. Alvin dashes over to join them for the last notes, nearly knocking Theodore off the platform in the process. After they finish singing, Theodore worriedly glances down at the ground as he is still hanging off the edge of the platform.
* The trailer for ''The Book of Life'' (2014) features a logo styled in a Mexican Day of the Dead variant with a different font and a skull replacing the 0 in "20th".
* The ''CannonballRun'' ident starts with the familiar theme being "derailed" by sounds of crashing cars and a car chase (between a vehicle and a cop car) that happens in and around the logo.
* ''Film/{{Daredevil}}'' DVD: The 20th Century Fox logo turns into something seen though Matt Murdock's enhanced senses. The movie itself has the regular logo.
* ''Film/TheDayAfterTomorrow'': The 20th Century Fox logo turns blue and a storm starts to appear in the background.
* The ''DiaryOfAWimpyKid'' ident transitions into a paper sheet drawing of the "75"/main logo, which then segues into the opening shot of the film.
* ''Film/DieHard2: Die Harder'' DVD menu: Snow is falling during this film's title card.
** ''Film/LiveFreeOrDieHard'': The searchlights on the 20th Century Fox logo go out! This also occurs in FOX Searchlight's ''Film/TwentyEightDaysLater''.
* ''Film/EdwardScissorhands'' features an ident that replaces the theme music with orchestral chanting, and the typical yellow colour scheme with snow and a blue background.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'': The logo reads "30th Century Fox Television". The logo even appears in-universe in the episode "That's Lobstertainment!", as seen above. The [=DVDs=] even call it "30th Century Fox Home Entertainment".
** This becomes HilariousInHindsight in April 2013 when RupertMurdoch announced that following the spin-out of News Corporation's publishing operations into a new News Corp., the old News Corp. would be re-named 21st Century Fox. The studio, however, is still 20th Century Fox.
* In the 2008 version of ''Literature/{{Krabat}}'', the background suddenly turns dark and stormy at the end of the Fox logo as a crow flies by squawking.
* ''WesternAnimation/IceAge 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs'': A stone-age version of the logo appears, with the searchlights replaced by smoking fumaroles. This only appeared in the theatrical release and on the 3D Blu Ray release.
* A TV spot for ''Film/IndependenceDay'' had the logo be progressively darkened by an alien ship's shadow.
* Replaced in ''The Film/LeagueOfExtraordinaryGentlemen'' movie by a more decrepit and dark sign.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'': The "Twentieth Century Frog" logo combined this with the MGM lion, with three hand-drawn frogs replacing the lion. "Twentieth Century Vole" is also mentioned on the show.
* ''Film/MoulinRouge'': A conductor in a concert hall with draped red curtains walks to the center. The curtains open up, and footage of the Fox logo plays on screen framed by the curtains as the conductor leads the symphony playing the fanfare, seen below the stage.
* The trailer for ''Film/RevengeOfTheNerds'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hw6zrInbtQE the logo crumbling and being replaced by the film's one.]] Also the searchlights are bright and wave wildly (including the searchlights which never normally move),
* ''Film/RobinHoodMenInTights'' has a 12th Century Fox logo on an actual fox.
* ''Film/TheRockyHorrorPictureShow'': The 20th Century Fox fanfare played on a piano rather than by a full orchestra.
** According to Richard O'Brien in the DVD commentary, the sequence originally was going to be normal, and the piano version of the fanfare was to be played at the movie's climax, just before Frankie started singing "Wild & Untamed Thing".
* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'': In one CouchGag, [[BitingTheHandHumor Homer notices the Fox logo on the screen, rips it off furiously, and his family joins him in stomping on it]].
** The episode "[=MoneyBART=]", the CouchGag storyboarded by guerrilla artist Creator/{{Banksy}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DX1iplQQJTo depicts]] the logo as [[BitingTheHandHumor a giant sweatshop]] making Simpsons merchandise and hand-animating/developing the opening. Steel yourself before following that link, it's actually incredibly dark and unpleasent.
** In ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsonsMovie'''s ident, Ralph Wiggum runs out of the "20th" and sings the last few bars of the theme music (badly) before running away. The audio for this has been adapted for the Home Entertainment logo starting with the Sixteenth Season DVD.
** The episode "Thirty Minutes Over Tokyo" ends with the familiar fanfare replaced with Homer screaming "Ah! Undo! Undo!" (Earlier in the episode, Homer is investing in stocks whilst at an internet cafe. This is Homer's reaction when Lisa tells him that News Corp is part of Fox.)
** The ChristmasEpisode "Miracle on Evergreen Terrace" has jingle bells playing with the fanfare.
** On "The Blunder Years", this and the Gracie Films logo before have [[RunningGag Homer loudly screaming]] over them.
* ''Film/Speed2CruiseControl'' has the logo being washed by the ocean.
* In FOX Searchlight's ''Film/{{Sunshine}}'', the logo ''plays backwards'', ending on the Sun... which turns out to be the reflection of the Sun on the Icarus II's solar shield.
* In the ''Film/{{X-Men}}'' trilogy, the "X" in the Fox logo remains visible to the end although the rest of the logo has already faded out.
** ''Film/XMenDaysOfFuturePast'' brings back the previous LogoJoke of having the "X" in "TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX" fade out a few seconds after the rest of the logo, as well as adding the first few notes of the X-Men theme at the end of the Fox fanfare.
* In the 1964 comedy ''Film/WhatAWayToGo'', the logo is pink (because Creator/GeneKelly's character in said movie loves the color).
* In ''Film/SilentMovie'', instead of opening normally, the logo appears a few minutes in, on a billboard.
* The opening of ''{{WesternAnimation/Rio 2}}'' has a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UyyZtwiNVyU samba version of the famous fanfare.]]
* Film/WhiteMenCantJump: Same fanfare, ''much different'' beat.
* ''Film/DownWithLove'': To go with the film's {{Retraux}} early '60s romantic comedy cinematography, the '60s Fox logo is used, complete with [=CinemaScope=] card. Also, the Regency logo is colored pink instead of blue and its jingle was rearranged in a smooth jazz style.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Sony/Columbia Pictures]]
* ''Film/CatBallou'': The Torch Lady transforms into an animated version of Creator/JaneFonda as a cowgirl who is holding two guns and firing them.
* ''Film/MenInBlack'' series: In the second movie, the Torch Lady's torch flashes like a [[LaserGuidedAmnesia neuralizer]]. Happens in-universe at the end of the film.
** Trailers also had her wearing sunglasses.
* ''Literature/TheMouseThatRoared'': The Torch Lady looks down, sees a mouse at her feet on the pedestal, [[EekAMouse and runs off-screen, leaving her torch behind]]. At the end of the film is a title-card sequence where she runs back up the stairs of the pedestal and grabs her torch, via running this opening sequence backward.
* ''Thank God It's Friday'': The Torch Lady's toga transforms into a disco-themed outfit and she does a dance.
* ''Film/CharliesAngels'': The movie begins with the usual Columbia Torch Lady logo. Then the logo pans to the right, as the movie starts off in the sky on a plane.
* ''Strait-Jacket'': At the end, we see that the lady has been decapitated and her head is placed just below her feet.
* ''Zotz!'': As the Torch Lady opens the film, in the bottom right-hand corner is the familiar William Castle director chair. In close-up, Castle points to her and says, "Zotz!" Back in wide shot, the Lady looks down at Castle and speaks, "Zotz? What's Zotz?"
** At the end, the Torch Lady smiles and speaks, "Zotz all!."
* ''Film/TheManCalledFlintstone'': The Torch Lady is replaced with Wilma Flintstone (who is dressed as the Torch Lady).
* ''TheGrudge 2'': The logo starts as usual, but the torch flickers, briefly causing the Torch Lady to turn into Kayako and the word "COLUMBIA" to turn into "GRUDGE 2."
* ''What Planet Are You From?'': Creator/AnnetteBening, co-star of the film, takes her long-rumored place as the face of the post-1994 Torch Lady (a composite is actually used for every other Columbia film of this era).
* ''CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs'': A giant banana falls on the Torch Lady, unceremoniously knocking her off-screen. A cloud storm then passes by, transitioning to the Sony Pictures Animation. In [[CloudyWithAChanceOfMeatballs2 the sequel]], the banana turns out to be a bananostrich ridden by a Strawberry, whose torch overtakes the screen to transition to Sony Pictures Animation.
* ''WesternAnimation/EightCrazyNights'': Eleanor (Whitey's sister) is on the pedestal dressed up as the Torch Lady, then transforms via a melt effect into the real Torch Lady.
* ''Film/BeakmansWorld'': A toy rocket flies around the Torch Lady.
* ''Film/TheGreenHornet'': The torch has a green glow instead of a yellow glow.
** ''Film/TwentyTwelve'' has a bright orange glow that grows to overtake the logo, transitioning directly into the movie - though a review said it'd be better if the statue was in ruins, [[SceneryGorn to fit the movie]].
* ''Film/{{Superbad}}'': The 70's variant of the logo is shown, but with new text inserted at the bottom of the screen reading "A Sony Pictures Entertainment Company". When the Torch Burst symbol appears, the background becomes yellow instead of black, and then colorful silhouettes of Evan flash across the screen.
* ''Film/{{Wolf}}'' has dark clouds in the background, and then another cloud covers the logo.
* ''Film/DjangoUnchained'' (co-produced by The Weinstein Company and Columbia Pictures) begins with an early '70s variant of the logo but with slightly distorted colors and a "A Sony Pictures Entertainment Company" byline in an era-appropriate typeface, which comes after The Weinstein Co. logo. (see also ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' below)
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Disney/Pixar]]
* ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'': The Walt Disney Pictures logo gets abducted by a TractorBeam. Additionally, the arc is blinking green.
** An early version of this also featured the logo's text changing from alien characters to English, in one of the deleted scenes.
** ''WesternAnimation/StitchTheMovie'': The logo fades from white-on-blue to green-on-black, and then shimmers away into the starfield behind it.
** ''Lilo and Stitch 2'': The castle reveals itself from the bottom up, instead of the usual top down. After the logo is fully formed, it suddenly experiences a glitch.
** ''WesternAnimation/LeroyAndStitch'': After the logo is formed, the background turns into space as the castle goes into hyperdrive.
** ''Anime/{{Stitch}}'': In the first season opening for the original Japanese version, the Disney logo zooms into view, and then gets zapped by Stitch in his stolen police cruiser.
* One extended-version trailer for and the ending credits of the home video version of ''WesternAnimation/{{WALL-E}}'' has the bulb on Luxo Jr. burning out and then being replaced by WALL-E; on his way out he knocks over the R in Pixar and stands in its place.
** Although the joke isn't necessarily with the Disney/Pixar logos themselves, if you stick around to the very end of the credits, the Disney and Pixar logos are followed by a Buy 'n' Large logo and jingle.
* ''Film/TheHauntedMansion'' has the castle set against the foyer organ, before fading into the roof of the mansion.
* ''Film/{{Enchanted}}'': The camera zooms in on a tower of the Disney castle to show the book on a stand inside, effectively integrating the logo into the animated prologue.
* ''AtlantisTheLostEmpire'': The logo looks as if it's been hammered onto brass, and the "arch" looks like an electric spark going over the castle.
* ''InspectorGadget'': The castle has alarm clocks, waldo arms, and other paraphernalia inside it. The "arch" is a large gear, or half a gear. Done in the first two. Also, at the end of the first film, the Caravan Pictures Guy walks down the road, pauses, and puts his briefcase down. The Gadget Copter emerges from his hat and he flies off.[[note]]Incidentally, ''Inspector Gadget'' ended up being the last film produced by Caravan Pictures. Make of that what you will.[[/note]]
* ''Disney/TheLionKing'', 2002 IMAX version: The castle is rendered in a desert-sand tan, and the arch is formed by a signal flare.
** The same logo is used for ''SkyHigh''. The logo itself fades away and leaves a silhouette of the castle as part of a comic-book-style animated city skyline.
** This logo was also used on ''Literature/TuckEverlasting'', ''Disney/{{Dinosaur}}'', ''RememberTheTitans'' and ''{{Holes}}''.
* ''TheWild'': A CGI teal version of the castle appears as Samson the lion tells one of his famous stories, only to rewind when his son, Ryan, interrupts him, commenting how he heard that story 'like a billion times.' This happens thrice before it goes over normally.
* ''WesternAnimation/RecessSchoolsOut'': After the flash of light, we see the gang standing on the castle and they play out the jingle with their kazoos.
* ''RaceToWitchMountain'': DarkerAndEdgier music is used for the Disney castle logo, and at the very end, the castle morphs into a silhouette of the titular mountain.
* ''[[PeterPan Return To Neverland]]'': A slightly different version of the usual theme played with the spot flying over the castle with a lot more sparkle. A small spot of light is then seen behind the logo as it is projected onto the side of a cloud. The little spot of light (revealed to be Tinkerbell at the end of the opening credits) then moves, causing the logo to vanish.
* ''[[Franchise/WinnieThePooh Piglet's Big Movie]]'': The spot and the trail it leaves are pink instead of white. Also, the start of the rendition of the "Winnie the Pooh" theme song for that movie plays over the logo instead of the usual theme.
* ''Film/TronLegacy'': [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QBN-Iolxa1o The castle is rendered as a black angular shape covered in]] TronLines within the Grid.
* ''PiratesOfTheCaribbean: On Stranger Tides'' featured fog appearing where the star in the beginning of the logo would appear, the Jolly Roger flag atop the Disney Castle, mermaids in the moat and a moodier color scheme.
* ''Disney/{{Tangled}}'': [[MilestoneCelebration 50th]] DisneyAnimatedCanon film disclaimer in the Walt Disney Animation Studios logo.
* ''Disney/SleepingBeauty'': The trailer for the 1995 re-release included a clip of the Walt Disney Pictures castle transforming into the castle where Aurora's parents live.
* ''Film/MarsNeedsMoms'': The opening animation is tinted [[UsefulNotes/{{Mars}} red when the arch rises]].
** ''Film/JohnCarter'': The opening animation is tinted [[UsefulNotes/{{Mars}} red for its entirety]].
* ''Film/NationalTreasure: Book of Secrets'': The opening Walt Disney Pictures logo is "darker and more orange" according to the director.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'': When the Pixar logo finishes, it fades out except for Luxo Jr.'s light like after the end credits for Pixar films, but after it fades out, the words 'Celebrating 20 Years' appear, with Luxo Jr. making the 0 in 20. In its sequel, a similar thing happens. After the logo finishes, the letters disappear, followed by Luxo Jr. and the background. Luxo's head turns into a 'C' in the word 'Celebrating,' and then '25 Years' appears after the previous word fades out.
* For 3D versions of {{Pixar}} movies, the logo plays normally, but the camera starts out from the side of the letter 'P' in 'PIXAR.' The camera moves to the right, until we see the logo at its usual view.
* In a modification by DannyElfman, the third to last note of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Frankenweenie}}'' ident abruptly becomes a ScareChord [[LastNoteNightmare held for several seconds]]. (This variation is the first track on the film's soundtrack album.) As this happens, the usual blue starry sky setting of the Disney logo transitions into a stormy DeliberatelyMonochrome setting, as per the movie itself.
* ''[[Disney/{{Fantasia}} Fantasia 2000]]'': The logo appears against a space background. At the end of the movie, the arc drawn above the Disney castle fades into the background.
* ''Disney/{{Tarzan}}'': When the words "Walt Disney" appear, the blue background is replaced by a jungle-at-night background, transitioning the logo into the movie.
* ''WesternAnimation/TeachersPet'': The castle is drawn in the style of the series it is based on, and thus series creator Gary Baseman.
* ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'': The Walt Disney logo zooms out, turning into Andy's wallpaper. In the 3D remake, the Pixar logo replaces the Disney logo in the transition. Luckily, the transition is still neat because the Pixar logo shares a similar shade of blue in the background.
* ''Disney/WreckItRalph'': 8-bit Walt Disney Animation Studios logo at the beginning (complete with 8-bit chiptune version of the Steamboat Willie music), and the Disney castle logo after the credits becomes a ''{{VideoGame/PacMan}}'' KillScreen. [[ContinuityNod The original blue-bar castle can also be seen]] as part as the KillScreen.
** Additionally, the Disney castle logo at the end of the ''WesternAnimation/{{Paperman}}'' short preceding ''Wreck-It Ralph'' is DeliberatelyMonochrome, as per the short itself, with a paper airplane providing the over-the-castle arc.
* ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful'': the Disney logo is directly integrated into the PaintingTheMedium-exploiting opening sequence; as such, it appears as a monochrome paper cut-out model presented in a 1.33:1 aspect ratio (opposed to the 2.40:1 aspect ratio of the core of the movie).
* Though the logo animation in ''[[Film/GForce G-Force]]'' is unchanged, there are subtle sound effect additions to the logo (most noticeably when the arch rises and when "Walt Disney Pictures" appears).
* ''Film/{{Prom}}'': Just as the arch light is about to land, the castle suddenly becomes a photograph in a scrapbook which is then covered over by a pencil-drawing castle and "Walt Disney Pictures" text scrap. [[ContinuityNod Notably, the "Walt Disney" scrap is pulled directly from the 90's logo.]]
* At the end of the MickeyMouse cartoon ''WesternAnimation/GetAHorse'', the logo is in black and white, with "Disney" written in an older signature font. Clarabelle Cow is seen leaping over the castle leaving a trail of pixie dust ([[{{Squick}} or is it?]]) behind her as she moos.
* ''Film/{{Maleficent}}'' teaser trailer: the text is pale blue, and the normal castle is replaced with King Stefan's castle. The camera then swings around to show some distant mountains, starting the action.
** In the movie itself, the normal castle is shown from the side and turns into Stefan's castle, which the camera then zooms past.
* In ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'', all sound and music in both the main logo and the Walt Disney Animation Studios logo is muted and "Vuelie", a song inspired by Saami and Norwegian culture, plays over instead, continuing into the title sequence, seguing into "Frozen Heart".
* ''Film/SavingMrBanks'' features a vintage Disney logo with "Walt Disney Presents", the words "Walt Disney Productions"[[note]]Which the Walt Disney Company referred to itself as before Michael Eisner took over in TheEighties[[/note]], and the old MPAA seal appearing underneath.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Dreamworks and Dreamworks Animation]]

* ''WesternAnimation/BeeMovie'': A bee scares away the boy and takes his place on the moon.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Madagascar}}: Escape 2 Africa'': The penguins knock out the boy and take his place.
* ''MonstersVsAliens'': A UFO abducts the boy with a tractor beam. Furthermore, the logo appears in grainy black-and-white and in the [[ThreeDMovie 3D version]] appears flat.
* ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda'': A leopard in a coolie hat in a NinjaRun, skips across a body of water, fishing pole in hand, leaping up onto the crescent moon to take the boy's place.
** ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda2'' picks up on [[spoiler:Master Oogway's death]] in the first film by having him go to the moon and take the boy's place.
* ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'': The boy throws away the fishing rod, pulls his rifle and puts on his helmet, jumps on a parachute, and gets stuck in the crescent moon. All of that, while the piano theme tune changes to military fanfare.
* ''TheRing'': The moon becomes the Ring for a split second, along with videotape glitches.
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}'': The S in both "Creator/DreamWorks" and "SKG" grow ogre ears.
* ''VideoGame/TheLostWorldJurassicPark'' for PlayStation and SegaSaturn: The boy's line gets a tug, he exclaims, "Caught something!", and the boy is violently yanked off the moon as a raptor squeal is heard.
* ''SmallSoldiers'' for PlayStation: The Commando Elite climb up the line and tie the kid up.
* ''WesternAnimation/HowToTrainYourDragon'': a Night Fury flies around in the background. This otherwise introduces the new vanity plate for Creator/DreamWorksAnimation (which exploits the 3D with a more elaborate fishline-swinging).
* HalloweenSpecial ''Scared Shrekless'': The boy is scared by a wolf howl and hides behind the crescent moon.
* ''WesternAnimation/PussInBoots'': The animation is accompanied by lively Spanish music, including the sound of a whip-crack which coincides with the boy casting out his fishing line.
* ''WesternAnimation/RiseOfTheGuardians'': Jack Frost takes the boy's place in the crescent moon, his staff in the place of the fishing rod. He lazily knocks the snowflake off towards the screen, causing the camera to zoom out, and the 'DreamWorks' title then freezes up with frost and explodes into snowflakes.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheCroods'': The logo is painted on a cave wall, then flakes off and is blown away.
* ''MrPeabodyAndSherman'': Sherman sits on the crescent moon, casting the fishing line.
* ''WesternAnimation/PenguinsOfMadagascar'': After a "20 Years" version of the regular Dreamworks logo, the logo appears on an ice cliff face with the boy in the moon. Part of the cliff then breaks off to reveal the silhouettes of the four penguins on top of each other, taking the boy's place with the penguin on top holding the fishing rod.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Lucasarts]]
Doing the "normal" logo was usually the ''exception'' rather than the rule for LucasArts:
* ''[[VideoGame/DarkForcesSaga Jedi Knight]]'' series and ''TheForceUnleashed'': multiple variations on drawing a lightsaber / using force powers etc.
* ''VideoGame/{{Afterlife}}'', where the Gold Man first falls into a flaming-red lava pit ... and then flies out with a halo and wings into [[GoIntoTheLight a heavenly white light]] off the screen.
* ''VideoGame/RogueSquadron'': Logo is blown up by duelling starfighters.
** In the sequel, the shape of the Gold Man is formed by hundreds of ''tap-dancing stormtroopers.''
** ''Rogue Squadron III'': The ''Star Wars'' characters dance to a disco version of the main theme, including the Gold Man.
* ''VideoGame/ArmedAndDangerous'': features three versions of the 'Gold Man' based on the game characters drinking tea.
* ''VideoGame/TheSecretOfMonkeyIsland: [[UpdatedRerelease Special]] [[VideoGameRemake Edition]]'': 90's era Guybrush walks on screen with a treasure map and digs up the logo, which changes to its modern form.
** ''VideoGame/EscapeFromMonkeyIsland'' also had the logo change to a monkey holding a banana.
** In ''VideoGame/TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'' the game starts with the letters C M I done in the style of the THX sound preface, complete with the THX noise, with their slogan replaced with "The monkeys are listening."
* The end credits of ''VideoGame/DayOfTheTentacle'' featured Purple Tentacle scaring the Gold Guy away and taking his place.
* ''VideoGame/BigSkyTrooper'': The Slug leader and a lackey descend on the Gold Man, discuss how it has bones and appears to be an ad, then destroy it - as the Slug leader declares, the two things he hates are bones and advertising.

* ''VideoGame/StarWarsGalacticBattlegrounds'': The Gold Man falls over to reveal a battle droid hiding behind him, who then shoots the camera.

* In ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'' we see the Gold Man turn into a skeleton, with the ray above also skeletonized.
* ''VideoGame/StarWarsRepublicCommando'' features the Gold man rendered in monochrome and static, in keeping with the DarkerAndEdgier theme of the game.
* The trailer for the cancelled ''Franchise/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice!!'' features the Gold Man investigating the logo with a magnifying glass. He drops it, causing the logo to shatter like glass.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:MetroGoldwynMayer]]
* On several different ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' cartoons, principally those directed by Creator/ChuckJones, Leo the Lion is replaced by Tom, who gives his best housecat "roar".
** At the end of "Switchin' Kitten", Jerry runs into a mouse hole and imitates the lion.
** In "Tail In The Trap", the logo appears as a "Wanted" poster which gets shot at.
** In "Sorry Safari", the words "A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Cartoon" appear over a cartoon lion from later in the short.
* A few MGM cartoons from 1942 had Leo roaring to the tune of the ''Tiger Rag''.
** The [[TexAveryMGMCartoons Tex Avery short]] "Batty Baseball" started with no logo, just the title of the short. After about 30 seconds into the action, one of the players pauses to ask the narrator what happened to the MGM logo. The narrator apologizes and we then see the logo and credits.
* In the trailer for ''Film/ANightAtTheOpera'', the lion was replaced by the MarxBrothers themselves, under the banner "Marx Gratia Marxes" (instead of "Ars Gratia Artis"), each taking turns miming the lion's roar. (When it was Harpo, his ever-present taxi-horn sounded instead.)
* In ''{{Tarzan}}, the Ape Man'' (the 1981 box-office bomb starring Bo Derek), Tarzan's yell is in place of the MGM lion's roar.
* In the 2006 {{Remake}} of ''ThePinkPanther'', after the lion roars, an animated version of Inspector Clouseau appears within the MGM logo, followed by the Pink Panther, then the lion again, reacting Creator/MontyPython style.
* ''Film/StrangeBrew'': Standard MGM opening, but the lion, instead of roaring, belches and appears disinterested. The camera then pulls back from the logo and pans towards the Great White North set, where Bob and Doug are trying to make him roar to no avail. A few minutes later, the lion roars in the background, and Bob comments, "Geez, now that hoser's growling!"
* ''SilentMovie'': The Big Picture Studios logo is essentially that of MGM, but with the studio boss in place of the lion and a seal barking replacing the roar.
* Steve Irwin's ''The Series/CrocodileHunter: Collision Course'' had an alligator instead of the lion.
** The trailer for the film had Irwin stepping into the frame and commenting on the lion.
* ''Film/TheFearlessVampireKillers'' has two versions:
** The original European version is the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IX5_s4EAVXQ lion morphing into a vampire where a drop of blood drops off his fang and segues into the opening credits]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_OPvFqh-Oe8 The American version is at the end of the cartoon opening where animated versions of Abronsius and Alfred are celebrating as the lion zooms in, roars then sprouts vampire fangs causing them to run off.]] One more blood drops from its fangs and segues to the opening credits
* TheMovie of ''Film/JosieAndThePussycats'' (a co-production between Universal and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer) begins with BoyBand music playing over the Universal logo but is immediately followed by the MGM logo as the music continues, with the lion being replaced with a [[{{Squee}} squealing]] teenage girl.
* ''[[TheHowling Howling III: The Marsupials]]'' replaced the lion roar with a quick film clip a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thylacine thylacine]] roaring.
* The trailer for ''Clean Slate'' has the main character's dog in place of the lion doing the roar. This wasn't in the film though (which instead had a special "70th Anniversary" logo shown on MGM's 1994 lineup).
* ''Film/{{Robocop 2014}}''. Instead of the lion roaring, we have the sound of talk show host Pat Novak doing vocal warm-up exercises.
* ''Night of Series/DarkShadows'' and ''[[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo]]'' (American adaptation): The lion's roars are muted out.
* ''Film/DrStrangelove'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was going to have one]]. Specifically, the film would be presented by "Macro-Galaxy-Meteor Pictures" instead, and instead of the lion, there's, as the script describes, "A WEIRD, HYDRA-HEADED, FURRY CREATURE". This tied in with the unused FramingDevice of the movie being presented as a FoundFootage film discovered by aliens and presented as part of a documentary series called "The Dead Worlds of Antiquity".

-->Mary Tyler Moore's film company, MTM, uses a logo that is a parody of the MGM logo, using a meowing [[CuteKitten kitten]] (owned by Moore and named "Mimsie") instead of a roaring lion. (Sometimes Mimsie is shown as a still image, as seen on ''Series/LouGrant'', ''Paris'', the theatrical release ''Just Between Friends'' and the pilot for ''Three For The Road''). MTM has used variations of its own logo for various shows produced by them over the years.
* For {{Christmas Episode}}s, such as those on ''Series/TheBobNewhartShow'', Mimsie was shown encircled by a Christmas wreath in place of the usual gold ribbon.
** BUT, the original ribbon appears for a split-second, possibly due to an editing error.
* At the end of the "Put on a Happy Face" episode of ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'', Mary Tyler Moore herself appeared in place of Mimsie and mouthed the words "Th-th-th-that's all folks!"
* At the end of the 1991 ''Mary Tyler Moore'' ReunionShow, Mimsie does not meow, she says "Bye!" in Mary Tyler Moore's voice.
* On videos produced by MTM Home Video, the kitten holds a remote control. After meowing, the kitten hits "rewind". The picture winds backwards (and loses color), and the kitten meows again.
* ''The Duck Factory'': Before the logo starts, a voiceover asks "Where's the cat?" The cat then quacks.
* ''Eisenhower and Lutz'': Mimsie's "meow" is sung by a group.
* ''The Graham Kerr Show'': As befits a CookingShow, the kitten wore a chef's hat.
* Similarly, on ''HillStreetBlues'', the kitten wore a policeman's hat.
* ''{{Newhart}}'': Bob Newhart's voice says "Meow" -- except for the first episode, where she meows normally, and the last episode, where Darryl and Darryl scream "QUIET!".
* ''The New WKRP in Cincinnati'': Instead of a meow, you hear Les Nessman saying "Ooooh!". There is no sight of a Website/YouTube video with this variant, yet.
* For ''Series/RemingtonSteele'' the cat wears a Franchise/SherlockHolmes deerstalker cap and has a meerschaum pipe in its mouth; when it meows, the pipe falls and lands in front of the word "Productions".
** Also, there is a mockup on Website/YouTube, but the letters move slowly, and Mimsie drops a gun, firing a hole into an "M".
* ''StElsewhere'': The kitten is dressed for surgery in mask and smock. In the final episode, the kitten appeared beneath the closing credits, hooked up to life support machinery, [[TearJerker and flatlined]] [[DownerEnding at the end of the credits,]] with the normal, [[SoundtrackDissonance rather upbeat]] show theme playing[[note]]though in the original broadcast, a network promo voiceover covered up the theme for most of the credits sequence[[/note]]. (This variant doesn't always appear when shown in syndication.)
** [[HarsherInHindsight By a sad coincidence]], Mimsie (the MTM cat) would die for real later that year, in 1988.
* ''The Steve Allen Show:'' The kitten wears heavy black eyeglasses and declares "Schmock!" in the voice of Steve Allen.
* ''The White Shadow'': A different kitten from the usual Mimsie bounces a basketball off the MTM logo.
* ''Xuxa'': The kitten uses the voice of Xuxa saying "Ciao!"
* The feature film ''A Little Sex'' has an animated cartoon version of Mimsie crying, followed by a second kitten appearing; the two then rub heads affectionately and purr.
* ''Bay City Blues'' has a cartoon Mimsie catching a baseball. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9kYNId_Kvbo This one and several of the other variations mentioned above can be seen in this compilation]].
* The shortlived series ''Three For The Road'' had an unusual variation on its final episode: after Mimsie meowed the gold ribbon and the shot of Mimsie within turned upside down for no apparent reason.
* ''Carlton Your Doorman,'' MTM's only animated production - a TV special/pilot for a spinoff from ''Series/{{Rhoda}}'' (itself a spinoff from ''Series/TheMaryTylerMooreShow'') - ends with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v_BhBfphNT4 a very annoyed looking white cartoon cat]] (not a kitten) glaring at the camera ("C'mon, say 'meow'... damn cat," grumbles Carlton).
* Most startling of all, the TV movie/PoorlyDisguisedPilot ''Vampire'' has "AN MTM ENTERPRISES INC. PRODUCTION" in blood-red against a black background - '''and no kitten at all!'''

[[folder:MutantEnemy Productions]]
-->Note that the variants are all exclusive to ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer'', and so the entries refer to episodes of that show.
* "Becoming, Part 2": The zombie says "Ohhh, I need a hug." (This was the episode where [[spoiler:Buffy killed Angel and left Sunnydale]].)
* "Amends" puts the zombie in a Santa Claus hat.
* "Graduation Day, Part 2" puts the zombie in a graduation cap.
* At the end of "Storyteller", the zombie sings, "We are as gods!"
* "Once More With Feeling": the zombie sings "Grrr... argh."
* "Bargaining, Part 1": the signoff is actually included in the episode itself, with Tara putting on a zombie finger puppet and going "grrr... argh."
* "Chosen", the final episode of the series: the zombie looks at the camera, growls, then keeps walking.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Czva65ck5A Parodied]] in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'', with the zombie doing the normal "Grrr... argh." before going on a rampage & killing people. The scene then cuts to show that it's JossWhedon messing around, as an executive walks in and says, "Come on, Joss. That's why you got kicked off ''WonderWoman''."

[[folder:Viacom/Paramount Pictures]]
* In ''[[RoadTo Road to Utopia]]'', BobHope and BingCrosby are sledding through the Klondike countryside and enjoying the scenery, when something catches Bob's eye:
-->'''Hope:''' Hey, get a load of that bread and butter!\\
(Cut to a shot of a snow-covered mountain)\\
'''Crosby:''' Bread and butter? That's a mountain!\\
(The "Paramount Pictures" logo suddenly appears in front of said mountain)\\
'''Hope:''' Maybe a mountain to you, but it's bread and butter to me!
* It was planned for the end Paramount logo to turn into the ''Franchise/StarTrek'' insignia at the end credits of ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'', but the plan was dropped.
* ''Franchise/IndianaJones'': The Paramountain fades into...
** ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk'': ...A mountain in the film via a dissolve.
** ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheTempleOfDoom'': ...A relief carving of a mountain on a gong.
** ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'': ...A mountain in Utah.
** ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'': ...a [[StealthPun molehill]].
** And there's the gag before the fade, as the mountain itself is not of the contemporary design: keeping in tune with the period during which the movies are set, they use the logo from the 1950s.
* ''TeamAmericaWorldPolice:'' The Paramount logo animation runs backward.
* In ''ComingToAmerica'', the camera zooms in to the mountain -- and then ''over'' it, until it reaches the [[{{Bulungi}} fictional African country]].
* In ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'', the mountain changes into a construction-paper mountain in the skyline of South Park, Colorado. This one was ruined when Creator/WarnerBros took over the European distribution of the film.
* ''Film/TheCore'': as it finishes, it zooms into the mountain, then starts to move down to the core of the earth.
* ''Film/TheTenCommandments'': the logo is cued over an image of Mount Sinai, rather than the usual mountain.
* At the end of the 1951 ''{{Popeye}}'' cartoon, ''Alpine For You'', after Popeye punches Bluto, Bluto slams into a mountain peak, forming [[CirclingBirdies stars around the mountain]]. After that, "A Paramount Picture" appears over said mountain, closing the cartoon. This joke was preserved on the AAP prints.
* Popeye, LittleLulu, and LittleAudrey also had their own [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MceZCTT7MCE special]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6uzO3sPO-zQ "Spinning Star"]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESjMx0pQvHU openings]], where stars from the logo would zoom in with the characters' headshots.
* It's [[StealthPun never spelled out in the text]], but Holy Wood Hill in the Literature/{{Discworld}} book ''Discworld/MovingPictures'' is implied to be a worn-down, aged version of the Paramountain, and in Ginger's dreams is shown surrounded by huge stars (which is FridgeHorror when, as well as being a ShoutOut, these appear to be connected with the established large stars in the skies of the Dungeon Dimensions).
** Also, when they awaken the Golden Knight from his slumber beneath the Hill, Ginger is carrying a torch and Detritus bangs a gong. In Ginger's dream there's a lion roaring as well, but that never actually happens.
* Paramount loves the MatchCut. In ''TheBusyWorldOfRichardScarry'' animated series, the Paramount logo [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cgV3vdOT09I morphs into a mountain in Busytown]] which the Applecopter promptly flies out from behind, again via a fade.
* As seen on the ''Film/ExitThroughTheGiftShop'' poster, guerrilla artist Creator/{{Banksy}}'s vanity production company is Paranoid Pictures, whose logo is very similar to Paramount's.
* ''TheBadNewsBears Go to Japan'' has Mount Fuji as the mountain.
* In ''Film/HardRain'', the mountain is amidst a huge storm.
* In ''Film/CoachCarter'', it briefly changes into a drawn version on a notebook.
* In ''Film/FourBrothers'', it is snowing around the mountain.
* In ''The Geisha Boy'', JerryLewis is seeing the sights in Japan - at Mount Fuji he does a double take as stars surround it like the studio logo.
* In ''Film/FridayThe13th2009'', the logo is tinted blood red.
* In ''Film/RearWindow'', the logo appears on closing window blinds during the end.
* When ''Film/{{Wings}}'' received a new soundtrack in 2012, it also had a montage of Paramount logos playing in reverse-chronological order added to the opening.
* In ''Film/TheLastAirbender'', the Paramount stars are accompanied with splashes of water. The {{Nickelodeon}} Movies logo afterwards is on fire, and gets covered by earth.

[[folder:Sega]]
* [[http://www.whipassgaming.com/genesisreviews/specialprojects.htm A large number of games released on pre-Saturn Sega hardware]] had customised versions of the Sega logo at the start. Do note that Logo Jokes for Sega CD and Master System games are less common than for Genesis, Game Gear and 32X games because their [=BIOSs=] displayed a Sega logo of their own.
** Note that the site says that the logo used for ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' was also used in ''[[VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles Sonic 3 & Knuckles]]'', which is not true:
*** ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog2'' and ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4'' actually had Sonic run to the right of the screen to make half of the logo appear, and then run back to the left to complete the logo. ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog4: Episode 1'' trailers have a black background, with Sonic (In the form of a blue streaking blur) coming towards the viewer three times, the third time in the middle of the screen & leaving the Sega logo in his wake.
*** ''Sonic 3'' and ''VideoGame/Sonic3AndKnuckles'' displayed the Sega logo, then the background turns black and Sonic jumps out from behind the logo. And then the screen flashes white for a second before cutting to the Sonic 3 title screen.
*** ''Sonic & Knuckles'' starts out just like the ''Sonic 3'' version, but the background behind the logo fades into Sonic and the Death Egg falling through the sky, with the Death Egg landing in the volcano and causing the Sega logo to shake itself out of existence.
** The GameGear version of ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' depicts Sonic jumping back and forth, forming the logo, as a reference to Japanese Sega ads that would end with a clay model of Sonic doing the same thing.
** ''VideoGame/AladdinVirginGames'' has the Genie, clad in referee garb, fire a starting pistol and accidentally shoot Iago.
** ''VideoGame/{{Astal}}'' has Astal using his breath attack on four enemies, transforming them into the letters of Sega, then pumping his arms in the air as the bird flies in.
** ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} and the Great Rescue'' has the title character coming upon the Sega logo, then adjusting his hat.
** ''{{Barney|AndFriends}}'s Hide and Seek Game'' accompanies it with "Boing!"
** ''Bass Master Classics'' puts the logo underwater.
*** ''[[VideoGame/EccoTheDolphin Ecco: The Tides of Time]]'' did the same, but better-looking.
** ''BeavisAndButthead'' has Butt-head come across the logo and whack it.
** ''VideoGame/CoolSpot'' shows the titular mascot hopping up and down ''in'' the logo.
*** The sequel has Spot carve the logo out of stone, then [[AgonyOfTheFeet drop the chisel on his foot.]]
** ''VideoGame/EternalChampions'' had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oTF0qBHnQQI variations for the nine playable characters]] - each would approach the logo and then harm it in some way (usually [[MadeOfExplodium blowing it up]]). For example, Xavier would turn the logo yellow.
** The ''{{Bonkers}}'' game had several logos.
** ''VideoGame/{{Boogerman}}'' showed the titular hero [[ToiletHumor fart-flying]] a missing S to the EGA logo, then run over to Interplay's logo and [[NoseNuggets launch a booger at the screen.]] The Interplay part was retained in the SNES version, where it is the only logo shown.
** ''VideoGame/ComixZone'' has the logo in [[DeliberatelyMonochrome Deliberate Monochrome]], contorting in various ways, while an odd jazz person says the company's name. The villain's hand then writes in "Presents..."
** ''Darxide'' has the logo on an asteroid... ''in 3D.''
** ''[[WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Desert Demolition]]'' has the Road Runner run up to the logo, then jump as Wile E. runs after him, scattering the letters in the process.
** A ''{{Doraemon}}'' game has the eponymous robot underneath the logo, performing the jingle.
** ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim'' has the titular worm showing off his muscles... until [[ComedicUnderwearExposure his pants fall down.]]
*** The second game actually sets up the plot, showing Psy-Crow distracting Jim long enough to kidnap Princess What's-Her-Name. For this reason, it was the only Saturn game to ''retain'' its Genesis brethren's Sega logo as well as one of the few SuperNintendo, GameBoyAdvance and DOS games to ''have'' a real Logo Joke[[note]]In those cases, it's done over, respectively, the "Licensed by Nintendo" screen, the Majesco logo and the Funsoft logo.[[/note]]. The PS1 version, on the other hand, outright axed the logo.
*** The special edition of the first game Jim performing a variety of inane acts on a DeliberatelyMonochrome Sega logo (Sega CD) or on the title screen (PC).
** ''GarfieldCaughtInTheAct'' has {{Garfield}} dancing on the logo.
** The ''Magical Taruruuto-kun'' LicensedGame has Taruruuto-kun doing the "Seee-Gaaa!" shout.
** ''VideoGame/{{Panic}}!'' for the SegaCD opens with the letters in the logo all mixed up so that they read "GASE", accompanied by an edited version of the clip used for the Sonic games: "Gaaa-Seee". Then Slap and Stick (the game's protagonists) fall from above and land on the logo, which snaps back to normal and is accompanied by the standard "Seee-Gaaa!"
*** ''Literature/TheMagicSchoolBus'' on Genesis did similar by initially spelling the logo "ASEG" before the Magic School Bus bumps the "A" from below, snapping the logo back to normal. No voiceover though.
** ''VideoGame/{{Ristar}}'' has the logo letters forming in space in black and white, with calm music playing. After they form, Ristar says "Come On!"
** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration: Echos from the Past'' has the Sega logo beaming in then out, complete with ''Star Trek'' transporter sound effects.
** The ''WesternAnimation/TazMania'' game has Taz spin up to the logo and eat the "S".
** ''VideoGame/{{Tempo}}'' has the logo do a water ripple effect, accompanied by a *BING* sound.
** ''VideoGame/ToejamAndEarl'' shows the duo's ship flying toward the Sega logo, then immediately flying over it as they get too close.
** ''VideoGame/{{Vectorman}}'' easily gets the best, where you can play a minigame that might get your game started on later levels if you do well enough and, using an off-screen power-up, you can blow up the Sega logo.
** ''Virtua Racing'' demonstrates the power of its cart's SVP chip from the get-go with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RDJnobZdiA8 an elaborate polygonal Sega logo animation]].
** ''Wiz 'n Liz'' has a cameo of the player character from ''VideoGame/TheKillingGameShow'' flying by and exploding in front of the Sega logo for no apparent reason.
* A rare post-Saturn example: For ''KOn Houkago Live'' on the PSP, the "Seee-Gaaa!" yell is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TL4H9QQSaPs#t=20s done]] by Creator/AkiToyosaki in-character as Yui.
** Similarly, the ''VideoGame/HatsuneMikuProjectDiva'' series (done by the same staff as the ''K-On!'' game) opens with [[Music/{{Vocaloid}} Miku]] singing the SEGA sound.
* As a non-sexual-fanservice-laden game, ''[[VideoGame/SegaSuperstars Sonic and Sega All-Stars Racing Transformed]]'' uses the Genesis Sonic Sega logo and jingle after the copyright disclaimers.
** Additionally, [[http://youtu.be/IkMLVc5tJmI?t=4m34s the credits contain a parody "Sumo" logo, complete with yell.]] Sumo Digital was responsible for the game's development.
* ''VideoGame/HellYeahWrathOfTheDeadRabbit'' also opens with the Genesis Sega logo, although in its original, digitized 16-bit format, rather than a remastered version like in ''All-Stars Racing Transformed''.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Ubisoft]]
* ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesTurtlesInTime Reshelled'' featured the four tutles falling into the Creator/{{Ubisoft}} logo in the same manner they fall into time holes in the game. This was later recycled for ''VideoGame/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtlesSmashUp'' (despite the two games' different art styles).
* Another of Ubisoft's includes the ''VideoGame/RavingRabbids'' series. Most notably in ''VideoGame/RabbidsGoHome'', where after the logo appears, the 2-D Rabbids seen during level intros run in and swipe the logo in their cart.
* The ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series gets [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZgfeMvjPmM Animus-inspired variants of the then-current logos]].
** ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedIVBlackFlag'' includes, right after Ubisoft, the Abstergo Entertainment Logo, the TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness and BigBad for the franchise. This is a justified joke, as the whole plot is that Abstergo is producing ''this very same video game'' as a facade for their real plans, and to get money so.. Congratulations, you just gave the big bads sixty bucks!
* ''VideoGame/GhostRecon: Future Soldier'' has the Ubisoft and "Creator/TomClancy's" logos fading in from the trippy background that's supposed to represent the game's DiegeticInterface. Following that is a shot of three shell casings falling to the ground, with the names of the Ubisoft divisions that developed the game printed on them.
** ''VideoGame/{{HAWX}} 2'' has an afterburning jet engine fade into the Ubisoft logo.
* ''VideoGame/RaymanOrigins'' shows Lums being sucked into the logo vortex, accompanied by sound effects from the game mixed in with the jingle. Afterwards, Globox smacks the Ubisoft logo, transitioning it into the [=UbiART=] logo. This same logo sequence is reused in ''VideoGame/RaymanLegends''.
* At the intro of ''Myst IV: Revelation'', after the logo appears, it explodes and changes into the symbol for Tomahna, with the words "Team Revelation" below it. Then it fades into the window that Atrus is looking out of in his study.
* ''VideoGame/FarCry3BloodDragon'' loads to a logo sequence done in an 80s style, complete with VHS scan lines and a superimposed play symbol.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:United Artists]]
* ''Theatre/AFunnyThingHappenedOnTheWayToTheForum'': The Creator/UnitedArtists logo is written in a messy Roman font, making it look like "VNITED ARTISTS".
* ''Film/{{Sleeper}}'', ''Film/{{Manhattan}}'', ''Film/StardustMemories'' and ''Film/RagingBull'' featured a black & white Transamerica/UA logo. Three of those films were shot in black & white.
* ''Theatre/FiddlerOnTheRoof'' originally began with a timpani piece playing over the United Artists logo.
* ''Film/ABridgeTooFar'' originally began with a sepia-toned United Artists hexagon.
* Some prints of the infamous ''Film/HeavensGate'' had the words "A Transamerica Company" fading underneath the hexagon underneath.
* The Film/JamesBond film ''Film/ForYourEyesOnly'' originally began with a UA logo similar to the 1975 logo, but with the "Entertainment from Transamerica Corporation" byline from 1968 fading underneath. Given the year this film came out (1981), and the situation UA was going through at the time, this could be interpreted as UA saying "Farewell" to Transamerica, after 14 years.
* The indie film ''Undertow'' used the early 1980's version of the United Artists logo rather than the current United Artists logo as the film's director wanted the logo to tie in with the film's setting.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Universal Studios]]
* ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}: The Plan'': The planet behind the Universal text isn't Earth, but Caprica.
* ''Film/TheBurbs:'' The Universal Globe appears (in a rendition done specially for the movie by IndustrialLightAndMagic). The text fades out, leaving only the globe, into which the camera then [[AstronomicZoom zooms]] until it turns into a flyover shot of the town the film takes place in.
* ''Film/{{Casper}}'': The globe turns into the moon.
* ''Film/{{Serenity}}'': The Universal spinning-planet logo becomes EarthThatWas, with the colony ships blasting off for space.
* ''TheMummyTrilogy'': The text "UNIVERSAL" disappears and the logo turns into the sun.
** In the [[SequelGoesForeign third one]], it turns around to zoom on China.
* ''Film/TheFlintstones'' and its {{Prequel}} ''Film/TheFlintstonesInVivaRockVegas'': the Universal logo is made of bones, named [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VhdihISj628&feature=related "Univershell",]] and hovers over Pangaea (prehistoric Earth).
** In the first film it doesn't appear until the Flintstones go to the drive-in (accompanied by the Revue/Universal Television logo music of the 1960s!), whereas ''Viva Rock Vegas'' begins with this variation - actually noticed in the movie by the Great Gazoo ("Did anyone else see those big letters circling the planet?").
* ''Film/{{Changeling}}'' and ''Film/{{Leatherheads}}'' both use [[{{Retraux}} the 1930s logo]]... which is inaccurate, as both films are 1920s period pieces (that coincidentally both happened to be released in 2008).
* An ad for Universal Studios Theme Park featured the camera zooming in on the Universal Earth until arriving at the park itself.
* ''Film/JurassicParkIII'': The Universal Earth as well as the Amblin Entertainment logo ripple like water from the sound of heavy footstep.
* ''Film/VanHelsing'': The Universal Earth is in black and white, and transforms into the flaming end of a torch carried by a member of a TorchesAndPitchforks mob.
* ''Film/TheWolfman2010'' features two versions. In the theatrical cut, the Universal Earth reveals a full moon. The unrated director's cut kept the Art-Deco Globe logo featured in [[Film/TheWolfMan1941 the original 1941 version]], albeit a darker version.
* ''Film/{{Bruno}}'': To fit with "Brüno", "[[HeavyMetalUmlaut Üniversal]]".
* ''Film/{{Doom}}'': Mars is used instead of Earth.
* ''TwoFastTwoFurious'': Earth cuts into a hubcap.
* ''Film/LandOfTheLost'', ''Film/InglouriousBasterds'' and ''Film/DragMeToHell'': The 70s[=/=]80s version of the Universal logo.
* The secret probation edition of ''National Lampoon's AnimalHouse'' DVD tile has the universal earth get bigger and bigger until it explodes...with John Belushi's character Bluto exclaiming "I'm a zit, get it?".
* ''Film/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'': The 1929 Byplane logo is used since the first scene is a flashback to World War I.
* ''SmokeyAndTheBandit Part 2'': Animated versions of Bandit's [=TransAm=] and Sheriff Justice's police car chase around the globe.
* ''Film/ScottPilgrimVsTheWorld'' displays the logo and fanfare in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-vv2VPSyuvE old-school-games style]].
** Also inverted [[PlayingWithATrope or something]] when Lucas Lee makes his entrance to the tune of the original fanfare.
* ''PitchPerfect'' has the Universal fanfare performed a capella then cuts to characters performing it. (coincidently this and the above Scott Pilgrim both feature Anna Kendrick)
* According to its [[DVDCommentary DVD trivia track]], [[WhatCouldHaveBeen an early version of]] ''Film/ShaunOfTheDead'' scored the Universal logo with sound effects from the fruit machine game Ed plays in the pub.
* The 2010 documentary ''Catfish'', about social media, replicates the Universal logo by using a computer cursor to spin a mildly pixelized BrandX version of Google Earth. Production companies Relativity Media and Rogue Pictures are pixelized and represented as a desktop icon, respectively.
* The international release of ''Film/JosieAndThePussycats'' had the Universal logo turn into a tongue ring shown on a screaming girl's tongue. Although the film opens with both logos, this variation is not on the US release (which got the MGM logo joke seen above; the joke appears on the logo of the company that ''didn't'' release it in that territory).
* ''TheLastRemakeOfBeauGeste'' had a variation of 1936 “Art Deco Globe” with continents on it, followed by MartyFeldman walking in, knocking off all the letters over the sound of glass breaking, stopping the globe, and forming it into a cube, causing all the continents (except for Africa, where the story takes place) to fall off.
* ''Film/LandOfTheDead'' and ''Film/DeadSilence'' use the 1929 logo.
* ''{{Hop}}'' has an egg-shaped globe.
* The game ''Film/{{Wanted}}: Weapons of Fate'' had "UNIVERSAL" in keyboard keys flying over a globe model.
* ''Film/ManOnTheMoon'' uses "Fanfare for Andy", a whimsical acappella piece associated with Creator/AndyKaufman's wrestling career, instead of the standard vanity plate music.
* ''CapeFear'': the logo is underwater.
* ''Film/MontyPythonsTheMeaningOfLife'': The music stops with a record-scratching noise, and the globe starts getting smacked against something. Which turns out to be the result of God trying to fit the round Earth into a square hole.
* ''Film/{{Ted}}'' begins with the standard Universal logo (the 100th Anniversary logo in this case), following which it takes [[AstronomicZoom a zoom]] into the globe to arrive on our hero's home.
* ''Film/{{Oblivion 2013}}'': The logo has a ruined, bombed-out Earth with the "Tet" space station floating over it. [[spoiler: And the Odyssey in its blind spot on the opposite side of the planet.]]
* ''Film/{{Waterworld}}'': The Universal Studios spinning-planet logo shows the ocean levels rising up and flooding the continents. The camera zooms into the globe down to sea level, and the Mariner's boat, starting the movie.
* ''Film/{{Xanadu}}'': A recreation of the 1929 Universal globe with biplane flying around opens the film. As the opening credits appear, the globe remains on screen and a succession of increasingly modern flying machines (four-engine airliner, Concorde, flying saucer) emerge from behind the Earth. The music changes in different styles of music as the objects appear.
* In the original Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial, the Universal logo runs backwards (as if to emphasize the space bearing on the plot); in the 2002 special edition, the iconic "bike silhouette" flies in front of the logo.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:WarnerBros]]
-->Since it's just the unveiling of a shield and a snippet of "[[{{Casablanca}} As Time Goes By]]", the Warner Bros logo often receives a different tint and audio (generally one that starts the movie).
* ''MarsAttacks'' starts with the usual "sky-borne" WB Shield, from behind which a Martian saucer emerges and wobbles sinisterly off-screen to the strains of a Theremin.
* ''Film/TheMatrix'' trilogy: The WB and Village Roadshow Pictures logos are made of the running green MatrixRainingCode.
* ''Film/SherlockHolmes'': The WB shield, Village Roadshow Pictures logo, and Silver Pictures square appear as metal-worked sewer covers on a cobblestone street. The camera then pulls back to reveal the street as part of the movie's opening chase.
* ''Film/SherlockHolmes: A Game of Shadows'': The Warner Bros/Village Roadshow Pictures/Silver Pictures logos, and opening title, appear in the pages of Dr. Watson's manuscript.
* ''Film/{{Constantine}}'': The Warner Bros. logo starts out in front of the traditional blue sky with fluffy white clouds. Then the [[RedSkyTakeWarning sky and clouds turn red]] and the logo crumbles and blows away, which is a reference to events later in the movie when Constantine goes to Hell. Again.
* ''Film/{{Dreamcatcher}}'' : The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow logos are covered in snow, while the Castle Rock Entertainment lighthouse beams its light across a lake covered in snow.
* ''OsmosisJones'': The logo appears as a one-celled organism floating in a dark background.
* ''SesameStreet Presents: Follow That Bird'': an animated Big Bird blows up a balloon in the shape of the WB shield and says "''Sesame Street'' is brought to you today by the letters W and B."
* ''Film/SuckerPunch'': WB and Legendary Pictures appear in two consecutive red curtains in a theater - in which the opening scene is first a stage play, then a movie.
* ''Film/ThreeHundred'': The WB and Legendary Pictures logos are rendered to look like unearthed ancient gold. In addition, the "As Time Goes By" jingle is ''also'' done [[InTheStyleOf in a Greek-sounding style]].
** ''Film/ThreeHundredRiseOfAnEmpire'': The WB and Legendary logos are emblazoned on doors in a Greek temple that open to the opening scene... literally.
* ''RockNRolla'': The WB and Dark Castle Entertainment logos are spray-painted onto the side of a brick wall.
* ''WesternAnimation/BatmanTheAnimatedSeries'': The WB Logo fades into a police zepplin.
* ''Film/BatmanForever'' and ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'': The Warner Brothers logo morphs into the shapes of the Bat Emblem. The latter has the logo freezing.
* ''Film/SupermanReturns'' and ''[[Film/{{Superman}} Superman IV: The Quest For Peace]]'': The opening logo isn't changed, but the accompanying music has a few notes added at the end, effectively playing the Superman fanfare.
* ''Gremlins2TheNewBatch'': This movie's 1990 release coincided with the 50th anniversary of the first BugsBunny cartoon, so Bugs is lounging on top of the WB shield when it zooms into view. DaffyDuck immediately appears and attempts to usurp his place. The characters reappear during the closing credits.
* The trailer for ''Film/BatmanBegins'' had the WB shield dissolving into hundreds of bats.
** In ''Film/BatmanBegins'', ''Film/TheDarkKnight'' and ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'' the logo has a dark shading matching Batman and Gotham's feeling.
* The classic ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes / Merrie Melodies'' cartoons traditionally began with the WB shield surrounded by brightly colored concentric rings. Some twists: Many of the classic BugsBunny cartoons start with Bugs reclining on the shield, and in some cases pulling down the card reading "Looney Tunes" or "Merrie Melodies".
** One [[WesternAnimation/WileECoyoteAndTheRoadRunner Road Runner]] cartoon ended with the Coyote essentially quitting, and placing a sign in view advertising for "one gullible coyote" [[NoFourthWall to speak to the movie theater manager]], then pulling the closing "Th-Th-That's All Folks" card onto the screen.
** "Lumberjack-Rabbit", the only BugsBunny cartoon in 3-D, started with the WB shield bouncing toward the audience, nearly filling the screen before settling to its normal size, in an effort to play with the 3-D effects.
*** This was also reused for the 2003 Looney Tunes shorts WB made in a short-lived revival attempt (for tying in with ''Film/LooneyTunesBackInAction''), but the effect was not as convincing. It was also reused on the intro for ''WesternAnimation/TheLooneyTunesShow'', but seemed partly out-of-place because the show ''wasn't produced in 3-D.''
** In "Porky in Wackyland" (and the remake "Dough for the Do-Do"), [[RealityWarper the Do-Do]] rides the WB shield as it emerges from the vanishing point, bops Porky on the head and rides it back out of sight.
* A variation: For many of their TV cartoons and animated movies, WB would use an intro with Bugs Bunny leaning on the shield and eating a carrot while the last few notes of the Merrie Melodies theme plays. ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' replaced it with the last four notes of their theme ("Those are the facts!"), and that was used until 2008 (at which point, a remade intro returned the Merrie Melodies tune).
** ''Film/WakkosWish'' featured Bugs coming out as usual, followed by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lV0PU5mxRiw Wakko coming out and taking a bite out of the WB shield]].
** The ''WesternAnimation/MuchaLucha'' movie opened with the usual logo with Bugs, but then fades into The Flea leaning against the shield and eating a donut in the same fashion.
** In TheNineties, this Bugs-based opening was also used for live-action family films released under the specific banner of Warner Bros. Family Entertainment.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures'', Wackyland's first appearances showed the WB shield chasing the 1970s WB "Big W" in the background, [[TakeThat with the former hitting the latter with a mallet. HARD]].
** Later, "The Making of Kon Ducki" showed the Warner lot's water tower with the caption "AFTER WE BOOTED OUT COLUMBIA." [[note]]Creator/ColumbiaPictures had been renting half of the Warner lot from WB since 1972, and WB's purchase of Creator/{{Lorimar}} also got them the old Creator/MetroGoldwynMayer lot -- which they promptly sold to Columbia not long after Creator/{{Sony}} bought them.[[/note]]
* In ''Film/GreenLantern'', the logo as a power ring construct, as well as the DC logo.
* The WB shield at the beginning of each ''Film/HarryPotter'' movie becomes {{Darker And|Edgier}} [[SceneryGorn Rustier]] [[http://youtu.be/RkDiA5ea2KQ as the series progresses]]. The accompanying music is "Hedwig's Theme," the BootstrappedTheme for the ''Harry Potter'' films, becoming each time more sinister too.
* The normally bright sky for the background of the logo is replaced with grim, overcast conditions for ''{{Twister}}''; the clouds part briefly to reveal the WB shield and then cover it again. The movie was released outside North America by Universal, however (it was a co-production between the two studios), and it's their logo which is revealed internationally... leaving the impression that the solar system is in the middle of a storm.
* ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' has the camera go around from one side of the WB water tower (with the WB logo on the tower and the normally bright sky background) to the other side (with the WB Games logo and, uhhh, a ''Franchise/MortalKombat'' dragon logo skyline).
** ''VideoGame/LollipopChainsaw'' does a similar gag, starting with the tower having a sparkly rainbow background, then turning around to a darker background with zombies being slaughtered.
* In ''WesternAnimation/TheThirteenGhostsOfScoobyDoo'' episode "That's Monstertainment," the gang is sucked into an old monster movie playing the character roles. The movie starts with Scooby Doo's face in a mock-up of the M-G-M logo reading "A Ranna-Rarrera Extravaganza" below and "Limitus Animatus" around Scooby's face.
** ''Film/ScoobyDoo'' A Bite is taken out of the Warner Bros. shield, although you don't see him Scooby's laugh is heard. Then the logo dissapears and Scooby's Dog Tag reading "SD" appears, underneath it says 'A Mystery Inc. Company".
** ''WesternAnimation/ScoobyDooMysteryIncorporated'' features the Warner Bros. logo and the [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes Merry Melodies theme]] that accompanies most modern Warner Bros. animation productions, but played with a creepy organ, and the logo is surrounded by a spooky, green fog.
* ''{{Film/Argo}}'', a 2012 movie set in the 1979-80 Iranian hostage crisis, and ''Film/MagicMike'', a 2012 [[{{Retraux}} 70's-style movie]], both use the 1972-84 style Warner logo, which was designed by Creator/SaulBass.
** ''Magic Mike'' director Creator/StevenSoderbergh fought long and hard to convice Time Warner heads to allow him to use the Bass logo on the film (he also attempted to utilize it for his ''Ocean's Eleven'' movies, but was also shot down). It took the studio president's claims that it wouldn't destroy Warner Bros.' reputation did they finally give it a get-go. Soderbergh [[http://somecamerunning.typepad.com/some_came_running/2012/10/argo.html claimed]] that the logo harkened back to an era of "great American films" and expressed his admiration of Bass' work.
* ''Film/JonahHex'': The "As Time Goes By" jingle is done [[InTheStyleOf in a Western-sounding style]].
** On ''NewYorkMinute'', the theme is played on an electric guitar.
* ''UnaccompaniedMinors'': The Warner Brothers and Village Roadshow logos get covered in an avalanche of snow.
* In ''ComicBook/VForVendetta'' the WB logo is in [[{{Retraux}} black and white.]] In addition, the opening notes of the 1812 Overture are playing in the background.
* On the 2009 version of ''The Firm'', the shield glows neon colors and the fanfare is replaced by Music/SoftCell's "Tainted Love".
* ''Film/WhereTheWildThingsAre'': Each of the logos are static, and have apparently been drawn on by Max. The WB logo has a "wild thing" sort of shape drawn around it, with Max scribbling over the Time Warner byline and replacing it with his name. The Legendary Pictures logo has Max drawing a monster eating it. The Village Roadshow logo has Max turning the logo into his own name, with the "V" becoming an upside down "A", and a crude sword along the bottom of the logo.
* ''WesternAnimation/YogiBear'' has the Warner Bros. logo in green and wood-paneled. The sky in the background is also done in a more realistic style than the animated sky usually seen.
* ''Film/YouveGotMail'' : The background changes into a computer screen and the Warner Brothers logo moves to up-left corner.
* In ''{{Man of Steel}}'', The Warner Brothers, Legendary Pictures, DC Comics and Syncopy Inc logos appear in swirls and bends of Kryptonian metal, similar to a Kryptonian computer display.
* ''WrathOfTheTitans'' : The Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures logos are each scrawled on a wall.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheLegoMovie'' has the Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow logos built out of LEGO bricks, like [[BuiltWithLEGO everything else in the movie]].
* ''Film/GetSmart'': The Warner Brothers logo is a CONTROL-like door, and the Village Roadshow logo is a billboard.
* The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow logos in ''WesternAnimation/LegendOfTheGuardiansTheOwlsOfGaHoole'' appear after the film starts and are shown in the sky with Noctus flying around them, followed by the film's title.
* ''Film/GhostShip'' uses the 1948-1967 Warner logo to tie in with its grisly 1962 prologue scene. Village Roadshow and Dark Castle Entertainment don't have period-appropriate logos though, so they had to settle for a sepia tone instead.
* ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'': The Warner Bros. and Village Roadshow logos emerge in an overcast, snowy sky, setting up the long tracking shot around and into the factory that most of the opening credits are run over, and Danny Elfman's score substitutes for the "As Time Goes By" music.
* ''Film/{{Orphan}}'': The WB and Dark Castle logos are covered in glow paint that flicker on and off, {{foreshadowing}} [[spoiler:Esther's usage of UV paint to hide the "Crazy" part of her RoomFullOfCrazy]] in the movie itself. Additionally, Dark Castle is missing its gargoyle head.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Multiple Companies]]
* In ''Film/{{Zodiac}}'', co-produced by Warner and Paramount, both companies' logos are presented in [[{{Retraux}} period-appropriate (i.e., 1970s) versions]].
* ''Film/{{Gladiator}}'': The Creator/DreamWorks and Universal logos are sepia-toned.
* In [[Film/{{Watchmen}} the film adaptation]] of ''ComicBook/{{Watchmen}}'', all of the logos (Warner Brothers, Paramount, Legendary Pictures, DC Comics) are rendered in static, monotone black on a yellow background with the "Futura Condensed" font when applicable, mimicking the cover of the comic book.
* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' parodied the 20th Century-Fox and MGM logos in the same sequence.
* For ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls Movie'', Cartoon Network had '''''every single character that the studio created''''' sitting in a movie theater, continuously blinking their eyes as the projector in that theater started to roll and the camera started to pan out. As the lights in the theater dimmed and the camera had each seat in full view, the eyes, still visible in the dark, continued to blink until they slowly formed the then-current Cartoon Network logo.
* ''Film/TheCatInTheHat'': The Universal, Dreamworks and Imagine Entertainment logos are all drawn and colored Dr. Seuss style. Plus, the Dreamworks logo's kid is wearing the titular hat, and you can see Fish-In-a-Dish swim away in the ripples of the Imagine logo. By far, the only good thing about this atrocity of a movie.
* Creator/CartoonNetwork's old "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=61xR9LyN0T8 Cartoon Theater]]" had parodies of the MGM, Paramount and Columbia logos.
** The [[http://www.closinglogos.com/page/Cartoon+Network+Studios third and current "Cartoon Network Studios" logo]] is a grungy, 1992 version of the network logo that stops blinking when a green scanner runs over it. However, most series/movies have it open up to some rough, animatic-like animation of the main characters (for example, WesternAnimation/TheGrimAdventuresOfBillyAndMandy has Grim trying to chop off Billy and Mandy's heads).
*** The second version of the logo only had one variation: Dee Dee dances by it, causing some of the letters to spin. Dexter, shortly after, crashes through the logo in a giant robot.
* Creator/MichaelBay ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' films: While the visuals are unchanged, the logos are accompanied by transformation sound effects.
** Though in one fan-made trailer, two of the stars are replaced with the Autobot and Decepticon logos, then the spaceship from the 80's cartoon crashes into the Paramount mountain in a homage to that respective scene from the cartoon. Also, in said fan-made trailer's Dreamworks segment, Cybertron is reflected in the water instead of the crescent moon.
* ''MinorityReport'': Fox and Dreamworks are black and white and look like they're underwater, to fit in the Precog tank opening scene.
* The final shot of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit'' combines the closing logo-gimmicks of Warner Brothers and Disney, with WesternAnimation/PorkyPig stammering his "ThatsAllFolks!" and [[Disney/PeterPan Tinkerbell]] giving him a parting tap with a magic wand.
* In ''TheCuriousCaseOfBenjaminButton'', the Paramount and Warner logos appear in a pile of buttons.
** Creator/DavidFincher [[WordOfGod claimed]] he did the Logo Joke [[http://www.artofthetitle.com/feature/david-fincher-a-film-title-retrospective/ purely as self-compensation]] for being disappointed by all the [[CreativeClosingCredits creative opening credit]] proposals pitched to him[[note]]all of which being, in his words, "this sort of antique, sepia, old china cup kind of feeling [...] like a grandma’s idea of a title sequence"[[/note]] rather than out of any thematic integration to the film.
* The logos in ''TheLosers'' are printed on a comic book page.
* In ''Film/SweeneyToddTheDemonBarberOfFleetStreet'', both the DreamWorks and Warner Bros. logos have desaturated colors to match the look of the film proper.
* In ''Film/TheAvengers'', the [[MarvelCinematicUniverse Marvel Studios]] and Creator/{{Paramount}} logos (Paramount sporting a 100th anniversary banner[[note]]though the logo is only there due to ExecutiveMeddling; long story short, Disney bought out Marvel, and Paramount sold its distribution rights for ''The Avengers'' and ''Film/IronMan3'' to Disney in exchange for a piece of the action. Since Paramount's original contract ended before ''Film/ThorTheDarkWorld'', the Marvel Cinematic Universe from that point on is branded as purely Marvel Studios; there's no Disney castle to be found taking the place of the Paramountain.[[/note]]) disappear into a glowing swirling mist, which turns out to be the interior of the Tessaract.
* In ''Film/TerminatorSalvation'', the logos for distributor (Warner Bros. in the US, Columbia worldwide) and production company (Halcyon, [[CreatorKiller which only did this film before going bankrupt shortly afterwards]] and thus don't even have a regular logo to speak of) are shocked by static.
* The parody ''The Silence of the Hams'' was apparently co-produced by Silvio Berlusconi Productions and... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mmM73VYcd-o Thirtieth Century Wolf]] (which, confusingly, parodies Fox's name but the MGM logo, with the wolf howling in lieu of the lion growling).
* In ''MeetTheParents'', logo jokes are incorporated into the opening song, "A Fool In Love" by Randy Newman. A chorus can be heard singing "Look at the light coming out of the earth" at the beginning of the song, which coincides the Universal logo in the movie. Then, after a few lines by Randy, you hear the chorus singing "Look at the boy, sitting on the moon", which coincides with the DreamWorks logo. (Because the movie is handled outside North America by DreamWorks, this musical joke isn't heard on international prints.)
* In ''Film/TheSmurfs2'', the white & blue hues of the Columbia Torch Lady's dress are more Smurf-like. A Smurf hat flies by her then lands on the title logo of Sony Pictures Animation. The fireworks on The K Entertainment Company logo are also colored Smurf blue instead of white as usual and if you look closely, you can notice some Smurfs on the rails.
* ''Film/CasinoRoyale'': DeliberatelyMonochrome MGM and Columbia logos, to fit with the Deliberately Monochrome prologue scene.
* ''Film/AmericanHustle'': 1976 Columbia logo. Atlas Entertainment and Annapurna Pictures were founded in TheNineties and in 2011 respectively however, so they both had to make do with rendering their logos in the style of neon signs.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Pinball]]
* In Creator/ZenStudios' ''[[VideoGame/TheAvengersZenStudios The Avengers]]'', Iron Man is on the right side of the playfield fiddling with various computer screens, one of which displays the MarvelComics logo.
* Not exactly a joke, but in ''[[Pinball/CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon Creature from the Black Lagoon]]'', the old Universal-International logo pops up when you start the game's multiball.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:VideoGames]]
* In the ''WorldInConflict'' intro, the typical Sierra Entertainment logo ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPO5_e9rwBQ a pan of a snowy Yosemite mountainside with an Asian ident]]) gets turned into [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRhXgmEtCnM a charred, burning battlefield with helicopters zooming past, and the title card is momentarily seen in Kyrillic spelling, sporting Soviet colours and the hammer and sickle]].
** Massive Entertainment's logo gets a similar treatment, as now silhouettes of American soldiers are seen dodging explosions in the foreground.
* The SNES version of ''VideoGame/MortalKombat2'' has a hidden alternative intro: Shao Kahn walks next to the Creator/{{Acclaim}} logo and taunts it while Kintaro walks in from the right, roars and uses his teleport stomp attack to bend it downwards. Shao Kahn then taunts it again.
* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' [[TheProblemWithLicensedGames first person shooter game]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuLvfLKSHjM had the iguana from Iguana Entertainment's logo]] [[TheyKilledKenny bite Kenny's head off.]]
** Another iguana example in ''VideoGame/{{Turok}} 3: Shadow of Oblivion''. The lizard is lounging on top of the Acclaim[[note]]By that time, Iguana Entertainment was rebranded into Acclaim Studios Austin, but the iguana mascot was retained[[/note]] logo as usual, when lightning strikes it and turns it into a skeleton, which promptly falls apart.
** ''Turok 2'', meanwhile, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAvEHWix1PI had the iguana dodging arrows fired from Turok's bow]], before jumping back up and shooting him to death with what appeared to be [[GunsAkimbo dual]] {{Sawed Off Shotgun}}s.
** Various ''VideoGame/NBAJam'' games feature the iguana wearing a basketball jersey and spinning a basketball.
* Holding the Z-button down on the NintendoGameCube controller while turning on the system would play different music. Gives different results if you hold the button down on one controllers, or all four.
* Creator/{{Rare}} seemed to like these in the {{Nintendo 64}} era:
** ''VideoGame/BanjoKazooie'' has the N64 logo walk into the frame and stop to watch a dragonfly whiz by. After a brief consideration on what it just saw, it shrugs and continues on its way. The Rareware logo then pops up, which is promptly crashed into by the dragonfly. Later in the intro, Mumbo plays a xylophone with the Nintendo logo on it (replaced with the Microsoft logo in the HD version).
** ''VideoGame/DonkeyKong64'' has the N64 logo dancing to the beats of the opening drums.
** ''VideoGame/ConkersBadFurDay'' opens with Conker cutting the N64 logo with a [[ChainsawGood chainsaw]]. He then replaces it with the Rareware logo, a huge TakeThat at Nintendo's policy of replacing Rare's logo with their own (cf.: [[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry2DiddyKongsQuest Dixie Kong's hat]]).
** ''VideoGame/PerfectDark'' opens with the typical Nintendo and Rare logos looming out of the dark at first, then you are treated to the typical spinning N64 logo... and watch as it slowly changes into a spinning model of the [=PD=] logo instead.
* Neversoft really likes this trope, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8TXtzS_j5E as seen]] by the ''TonyHawksProSkater'' games.
** In real life, what did Neversoft do to mark their merging with Infinity Ward, given that the Infinity Ward brand is the only one used after the merger? [[https://twitter.com/neversoft/status/487356581320065024/photo/1 Set (a prop of) their own logo on fire.]]
* ''VideoGame/OgreBattle64'' had a group of soldiers stab a fallen block until they carved out the Nintendo 64 logo.
* nVidia sponsorship sometimes plays with this. ''VideoGame/CallOfJuarez'' has you shooting down the logo so that it falls on an opposing gunfighter. ''VideoGame/{{Unreal Tournament 200|4}}3'' had a player [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53TnAGQiChM punching through the logo]], and ''[=UT2004=]'' followed that up with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z5-X4pqL6QA a Skarrj pounding him through it]].
** ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands}}'' has the logo appear without the nVidia voice. Claptrap comes up, pounds on it, sighs, and then the Nvidia voice plays, making Claptrap go "Ta-da!"
* ''VideoGame/ABoyAndHisBlob'' (UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}): The Boy and the Blob appear on the Majesco Entertainment logo, then the Boy throws a jellybean over to the nearby WayForwardTechnologies logo, which is strangely missing the "O"; the Blob moves over, eats the bean, and turns into the "O".
* The WebAnimation/HomestarRunner faux video game company ''Videlectrix'' has a logo with a white man running onscreen, tripping and falling, and then getting up in time with the music. In ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople: 8-Bit Is Enough'', Strong Bad himself takes the white man's place when he first enters the Videlectrix mainframe.
** The ''Awexome Cross '98'' game has The Cheat, inside a tire, run over the Videlectrix guy.
** ''VideoGame/PeasantsQuest'' has the Videlectrix guy, carrying a sword and shield, trip and fall on his sword. [[HesDeadJim He doesn't get up.]]
** ''Where's an Egg'' has a shady man walk in screen and shoot the Videlectrix logo. The shot ricochets off the logo and kills him.
** ''Stinkoman: 20X6'' has a Mega Man style version of the white man.
* The early 90's {{Konami}} logo featured on their [[SegaGenesis Mega Drive/Genesis]], SuperNES, and PC Engine games varied a little depending on the system ([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpMUKzIXymg&feature=related see them here]]). For SNES, the laser that shoots out at the beginning of the logo is purple, while the Genesis version is green, and the PCE version blue, and of course, the jingle sounds a little different on all three systems due to their differing sound-chips.
** Actually, they are even more variations of the standard Konami logo. Playstation games had two major ones : the "Logo coming out of earth" one for Western-released games, and the "Walking Logo" one for Japan-released games; most of the ''TokimekiMemorial'' games had the games' heroines cheerfully shouting "Konami!" as the logo appears ; and who could forget the legendary ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' Konami logo, whose music was a ShoutOut to HideoKojima's previous game ''VisualNovel/{{Policenauts}}''? (sadly, this and all other ''Policenauts'' references in the game were lost on gamers outside of Japan, [[NoExportForYou due to the game never making it outside of Japanese territory]])
* No two {{Nitrome}} game will ever show the developer's logo forming in the exact same way. ''Test Subject Blue'' has the logo as blobs of Blue Enzyme, in ''Steamlands'' it's made out of two steam-tanks blasting away at each other, ''Fault Line'' has it formed from the nodes when two screens get joined together, etc...
* The ''Franchise/StarTrek'' games done by {{Activision}} always feature the Activision logo de-cloaking in space, and then getting torpedoed by either the ''Enterprise-E'' (and in the case of ''[[{{StarTrekBridgeCommander}} Bridge Commander]]'', possibly the ''Sovereign'') or the ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'', in the case of ''StarTrekEliteForce'' as they fly by.
* The Flash game ''Color My World'' opens with the Armor Games logo as a billboard in Black And White City.
* A few Creator/ElectronicArts games have the double-lined circle "EA Games" logo done in the style of the game in question.
** ''CommandAndConquerTiberium'' titles generally have a green logo with a tiberium crystal growing through the background; their [[CommandAndConquerRedAlert Red Alert]] counterparts features [[GloriousMotherRussia a red-and-black icon with the hammer and sickle]].
** ''VideoGame/{{Bulletstorm}}'' has the main character lasso the EA logo and kick it away, turning it into the Epic Games logo.
** The ''VideoGame/MassEffect3'' version sports the logo in an omniblade.
** In ''Michael Jackson: Chaos in the Windy City'', a basketball becomes the sphere in Electronic Arts' 1990s logo.
* Rockstar Games loves to make use of this trope, examples from their flagship ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAuto'' franchise include:
** ''Videogame/GrandTheftAutoClassic'' (the first game) first depicts the logo for DMA (now Rockstar North) running along a white background, and then getting run over by a car. The Rockstar logo is, appropriate to the name, brought in with the sounds of cameras flashing and paparazzi shouting.
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoII'' has police car lights rush past the DMA logo, causing it to spin out and fall to the ground.
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIII'' has a faux-computer boot up saying "RAM OK" and "ROM OK" before forming the Rockstar logo using fast moving lines to create a wireframe.
** In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoViceCity'', the opening credits depict the RockstarGames logo as a {{Commodore 64}}-style loading screen.
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoSanAndreas'' has the Rockstar Games and Rockstar North logos appearing on screen with the sound of spray cans, kinda like graffiti (fitting for the game's 90s-era hip-hop mood).
** ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoChinatownWars'' has the logo appear on the outside of a suitcase full of drugs (based on one of the game's main mechanics), which then opens up to reveal the other Rockstar studios involved in the game's development.
** After having a rather mundane logo intro for the [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV fourth numbered game]] in the series, ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'' returns to having a nice elaborate logo intro where, after sitting through a small lightshow accompanied by the sounds of a car chase, police sirens, and gunfire, the Rockstar Games logo is formed from one of the stars of the series famous "Wanted Level."
** The other WideOpenSandbox games join in the fun as well, with Rockstar logos based on their theme:
*** ''VideoGame/{{Bully}}'' has the Rockstar logo appearing as the last of three targets - the first two fall as soon as they're hit by baseball balls, while the Rockstar Logo doesn't.
*** ''VideoGame/LANoire'' shows the Rockstar logo as a frame in an old film reel.
*** ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' shows the Rockstar logo inside a classic six-bullet gun. A shot is heard, and then the logo of the Rockstar studio that developed the game is shown in another slot.
** In ''VideoGame/BodyHarvest'', predating the Rockstar days, the DMA logo walks towards the screen, only for alien goo to appear and drag it away.
* Volition Inc. is fond enough of this trope that they did [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53kkS21-xNg an official video]] showcasing all of their Logo Jokes up to ''VideoGame/SaintsRowTheThird''.
* Terminal Reality's logo normally depicts a frightening, ghostlike face against a black background with the company's name below it. In ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'', it gets an appropriate sendoff: the name fades out after a second, and a Ghost Trap flies from offscreen left. The ghostly face is satisfyingly pulled into the trap's cone of light, which gives off a puff of smoke and beeps to confirm a successful capture. Fittingly, the game itself uses Columbia Pictures' 1980s-era logo.
* In ''VideoGame/VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' the nVidea logo is filled with blood, which a vampire then drains.
* Every Creator/ApogeeSoftware game featured a different take on their theme and logo.
* The flash game ''VideoGame/{{Gyossait}}'' features the tank in the Website/{{Newgrounds}} logo abandoned and is covered in weeds.
* In ''VideoGame/{{Bubsy}} II'', on the screen showing Creator/{{Accolade}}'s logo and slogan "Games With Personality," a paw takes off the "per" and replaces it with "purr."
* For ''VideoGame/CallOfDuty: Finest Hour'', Spark included a bonus gag in the animation reel: a German soldier runs up to the logo, and, Pixar style, attempts to crush the "S." When he is unsuccessful, he pulls out a machine gun and shoots the letter down to size, after which it springs back up and propels him into the air.
** ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps'' has the developer and publisher's logos appearing on 60's-era paperwork, in the midst of several shots of American soldiers in [[UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar Vietnam]]. ''[[VideOGame/CallOfDutyBlackOps2 Black Ops II]]'' has the developer's logo appearing over the background from the Strike Force loading screen, representing the [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture normal time period]], and then goes back to the paperwork-and-historical-footage for the publisher's logo, representing the flashback missions set in TheEighties.
* A few of the edutainment titles by Creator/BroderbundSoftware would show their logo with a fanfare, followed by a character from the game in question slicing out the "o" to turn it into an "ø". To be more specific...
** In ''VideoGame/LogicalJourneyOfTheZoombinis'', it starts off with a few zoombinis walking past the logo, with one then jumping up and cutting the "o".
** In ''Darby the Dragon'', the title character flies around for a bit and uses his wand to slice out the "o".
** In ''Gregory and the Hot Air Balloon'', the fanfare first plays, and then the title character's dog-like pet lizard crawls around on the "o" causing the slice to fall out.
* The Nintendo 64 port of ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerTiberianDawn'' has the N64 logo appear in wireframe before filling in with color... and then a Commando runs up, plants C4, and blows it up.
* The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' {{retraux}} fan game ''[[http://www.ganggarrison.com/ Gang Garrison 2]]'' opens with a mock plate for "Faucet", an 8-bit rendition of Creator/{{Valve|Software}}'s plate. Except that here, someone actually opens the faucet, filling the "Faucet" logo on the bottom left with water.
* Even though ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'' does show regular logos when the game is started, there is a nifty little Logo Joke in the prologue: The development team's logo (Team Little Angels) and the developing company's logo (Creator/PlatinumGames) appear on gravestones, as well as the names of the development team. This sequence then ends with Enzo taking a leak on the director's grave.
** ''VideoGame/TheWonderful101'' is the first game from Platinum to show ''no'' logos upon starting the game, due to it being a Nintendo-published game. [[note]]Most, if not all, Nintendo-published games ever since the UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}'s release do not display logos upon starting, due to the Nintendo logo already appearing on the game's start menu screen on the hardware's firmware.[[/note]] Instead, the Nintendo, Platinum, and dev team logos appear in the prologue on city buildings, along with names of the dev staff, then ending with the camera panning into the school bus.
* Creator/{{Sierra}} did one in its release of ''3D Ultra Pinball: The Fastest Pinball in Space''. After the usual fanfare plays, a strange cartoon character walks up carrying the words "Jeff Tunnel Productions", then stops, points to the logo and says, "Phew, Sierra!"
** This troll-like character appears on the logo screen of several other Sierra games of the era; in ''3D Ultra Pinball 3: The Lost Continent'', he takes on a dinosaur-like appearance.
* In ''Globdule'', the "Creator/{{Psygnosis}} Presents" screen has Globdule in place of the Owlball.
* In ''VideoGame/EarthwormJim 3D'', Earthworm Jim is dancing with an accordion when he is squashed by a falling Nintendo 64 logo, which is in turn [[DropTheCow squashed by a cow]]. (The PC version averts this by having a fridge instead of the N64 logo.)

[[folder:Other]]
* ''Lords of Dogtown'': The words "locals only" is spray-painted over the [[TristarPictures TriStar]] logo.
** ''Look Who's Talking Too'': The pegasus from the [=TriStar=] logo speaks (in a Series/MisterEd voice, of course of course).
** Richard Pryor commentates on Pegasus at the start of ''Another You''.
* The 'Gracie Films' logo at the end of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' has been altered for comedy a few times specific to the episode. At the end of every Halloween episode, the accompanying bit of music is played on a pipe organ, along with a woman's shrieking in lieu of the logo's usual "SHHHHH!" sound effect.
** At the end of the {{crossover}} episode with ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'', the logo appears with the latter show's Peter Griffin heard singing along to the familiar nine-note electric piano theme. ("And now the show is over now".)
* Gaumont Films:
** ''Film/TheCrimsonRivers'': A literal crimson river cuts through the map of the 90's logo and the space background at the end has a red tint as the logo fades into the opening credits.
** The little boy picking the flower in the 2000's logo gets roundhouse-kicked in ''{{JCVD}}'', the Jean Claude Van Damme self-parody film..
** ''Film/OSS117CairoNestOfSpies'' and ''Film/OSS117LostInRio'' use period-appropriate Gaumont logos.
* In the second season of ''Series/AufWiedersehenPet'' the opening Central logo (a white globe) shrinks down and dissolves into a live action shot of a white roulette ball at the start of the opening credits.
* One episode of Thames Television's ''The Kenny Everett Video Show'' had Kenny bursting through the opening logo. The shot was repeated in reverse for the closing logo.
** Another of Cuddly Ken's programmes replaced the London buildings that made up the Thames logo with [[http://hub.tv-ark.org.uk/images/itvlondon/itvlondon-thamesmain/images/thames-ident1979-kennytits-l.jpg women's breasts]]...
** One edition of the MorecambeAndWise Christmas shows produced by Thames used a re-recorded version of the Thames logo jingle: "Here they are now, Morecambe and Wi-i-i-i-i-ise!"
** For the ''Des O'Connor'' show, the Thames jingle was played with different instruments. It would then swoop off into the stars, starting off the credits for the show.
** ''Armchair Thriller'' used a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3Up8vQ0cd0 nighttime version]] of the normal logo.
** For ''Series/{{Storyboard}}'', the last note would be reverbed as white streaks would fly in.
* In the Lakeshore Entertainment title card for ''Film/{{Underworld}}'', the normally sunlit sky turns dark, and a full moon comes out.
* ''NationalTreasure'', The JerryBruckheimer production company had lightning striking a tree as its logo. The thunder sounds accompanying the logo faded into the thunder sounds of the storm in the first scene.
** Even the "single bolt of lightning" is a reference in itself. The original logo was two lightning bolts striking in the same place from different parts of the screen -- being the logo for Don Simpson ''and'' Jerry Bruckheimer's company. After Don Simpson's death, Bruckheimer altered the logo to the single bolt of lightning it presently is.
** Two other Bruckheimer Productions logo jokes: Hurely from ''[[Film/GForce G-Force]]'' runs on the road, [[PaintingTheMedium trips on the logo's border frame when it zooms in]] and flees offscreen when the lighting strikes, and before ''Film/TheSorcerersApprentice'' the lighting bolts make the same sound that the Tesla coil lighting makes in the film.
** For ''Film/GoneInSixtySeconds2000'', after the logo frames the lightning tree road, it zooms through the frame and resumes running up the road.
** ''Film/DejaVu'' has the normal strike, then it rewinds and strikes again.
** ''Film/TheLoneRanger'' features railroad track instead of the road that usually leads to the tree.
* Another Creator/{{ITV}} company who went along with the Logo Joke idea was Yorkshire Television - perhaps the best remembered example was their chevron logo zooming off like a firework in the titles to game show ''3-2-1''.
* Early editions of ''Series/{{Tiswas}}'' featured the ATV logo running backward. It was eventually stopped.
* LWT's adaptation of ''Literature/JustWilliam'' featured the titular character smashing the logo with a catpult after it had formed up. The endboard after the credits rolled showed it being held together with duct tape.
** Another variation on LWT's red, white and blue 'ribbon' logo was used at the start of the interview show ''Russell Harty Plus'', where the end of the ribbon would loop into a circle from which the picture would iris in.
** The short-lived sketch show ''End of Part One''[[note]] A SoundToScreenAdaptation of ''Radio/TheBurkissWay''[[/note]] begins one episode with the ribbon starting at the top left of the screen as usual, but instead of turning horizontal to form the "L" it continues straight down and falls offscreen with a loud crash.
* The THX logo has quite a few variations, but the funniest is probably [[http://www.thx.com/consumer/movies/8286288 the one with the cows.]]
* In ''Film/TenaciousDInThePickOfDestiny'', THX: The Audience Is Now Listening is replaced with [[StonerFlick THC: The Audience Is Now Baking.]]
* ''Series/DoctorWho'':
** On the ''[[Recap/DoctorWho20thASTheFiveDoctors The Five Doctors]]'' 1995 VHS release, the '90s BBC Video logo gets sucked up by the Time Scoop at the end. It was kept on the 2008 DVD release of the story as an EasterEgg.
** ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS33E6TheBellsOfSaintJohn The Bells of Saint John]]'' opens with [[http://theidentgallery.com/player.php?id=BBC1-2013-ID-DOCTORWHO-1 a BBC One ident]] being corrupted by static and weird symbols showing up below the logo. [[spoiler:The signals and symbols are [[BrainUploading very]] [[AndIMustScream plot-relevant]].]]
** The TV broadcasting of ''[[Recap/DoctorWho50thASTheDayOfTheDoctor The Day of the Doctor]]'' was preceded by [[http://theidentgallery.com/player.php?id=BBC1-2013-ID-DRWHO50-LANDER-1 the Doctor disrupting an ident]]: "[[WeaponOfMassDestruction The Moment]] is here..."
** For ''[[Recap/DoctorWhoS34E5TimeHeist Time Heist]]'', the opening credits "time tunnel" are shown at the start of the episode... Which turns out to be Clara's washing machine with the Doctor peering into it.
* ''BeKindRewind'': For British distribution by Pathé, its logo [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kqKdsajKTnw got]] [[StylisticSuck sweded]]. (Compare with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J9jBA-tZ7tU the real deal]].)
* The logo for Shadow Projects, involved in the production of a number of puppet shows, featured a dog. It would normally be heard barking at the end of one of these shows, but on ''Series/BearInTheBigBlueHouse'', sometimes it would make a different noise, such as meowing or quacking.
* ''Series/{{Taxi}}'': For the ChristmasEpisode, the off-screen female voice in the John Charles Walters Productions logo says "Merry Christmas, Mr. Walters!" instead of "Good night, Mr. Walters!"
* When Music/TheBeatles' black-and-white movie ''AHardDaysNight'' premiered on NBC in 1967, the network's "In Living Color" peacock intro was replaced with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XQ9KZcU294 an animated penguin]].
* That said, Creator/{{NBC}} still likes to play around with their peacock logo:
** On the week of Earth Day, it is totally green.
** In the ''Franchise/{{Marsupilami}}'' episode, "Toucan Always Get What You Want", Maurice grabs the NBC Peacock. To which the evil Jaguar named Eduardo said "I don't want no stinky bird today, My stomach is craving for the little spotty guy with the tail".
** Ads for some NBC shows will sometimes play with the logo at the end of the ad. At the end of commercials for ''Series/{{Revolution}}'', the logo has a glowing yellow outline, and at the end of the commercials for ''Series/{{Hannibal}}'', the logo is blood red.
* ''Series/TokusouSentaiDekaranger'', TheMovie: The Toei logo takes place on a beach. Here, the logo quickly pans to the left, for the first scene is on a beach too.
* ''Film/GokaigerGoseigerSuperSentai199HeroGreatBattle'': The Toei logo is unchanged, but the ''Franchise/SuperSentai'' 35th Anniversary logo is directly intergrated into the opening as Gosei Red is sent flying through it by the enemy, breaking it to reveal the Legend War.
* The third part of the ''Series/KamenRiderDecade'' and ''[[Series/KamenRiderDouble Double]]'' Movie Wars begins on a split screen, representing how Double's chasing of the Dummy Dopant will involuntarily converge with Decade's final battle against [[LegionOfDoom Super Shocker]]. Of course, both screens show the Toei logo twice.
** In the ''Double'' and ''[[Series/KamenRiderOOO OOO]]'' Movie Wars, the Toei logo is shown in red, yellow, green and purple, mirroring the color schemes of both Riders' basic forms (green and purple for Double and red, yellow and green for OOO).
* At the start of the 2nd series of the original ''Series/{{Life On Mars|2006}}'', {{BBC}}1 replaced its usual idents with a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jIOGuLXtwno&feature=related recreation of the mirror-globe ident]] used in the early '70s (the show's setting). BBC Wales opted out of this, choosing instead to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6PceKfRb4Vc&feature=related use their actual model]], replete with bilingual Cymru/Wales branding, and an original BBC Wales announcer.
** Promos for the American ''Life On Mars'' featured a 1970s ABC logo and an Ernie Anderson soundalike.
* The Creator/MarvelComics "Flipping Pages" logo changes with each film, with the pages shown being altered to the series the film is based on -- So the ''Film/SpiderManTrilogy films featured images from the ''ComicBook/SpiderMan'' comics, and so on. Some films, such as ''Film/FantasticFour'' also alter the color of the Marvel logo from the traditional red to a color more suited to the series.
* In a movie-oriented skit, ''Creator/MontyPython'' did a Terry Gilliam animated logo for "20th Century Vole" pictures, with a small furry rodent rising into the MGM crest with a squeak.
** In ''And Now For Something Completely Different'', it got changed to "20th Century Frog" along with a croaking frog in the crest. Either done because it sounded better or because it was assumed [[ViewersAreMorons international moviegoers wouldn't know what a vole is]].
** A later episode opens with the actual Thames logo, followed by a Thames announcer stating, “We’ve got an action-packed evening for you tonight on Thames but right now, [[SelfDeprecation here’s a rotten old BBC programme]]!”
* An example at the end of an episode: the A.K.A. Cartoon logo at the end of every ''WesternAnimation/EdEddnEddy'' episode is remarkably different in every season, episode and even TheMovie.
* There was a parody of the NBC peacock on "Laugh-In" where the peacock [[http://youtu.be/U2xZc6j7PXI sneezes her feathers off]].
* Studio Canal:
** ''Film/AttackTheBlock'' has an all-black version of the Studio Canal logo (completle with unusually black clouds), to match the colors of the film's aliens.
** ''Film/{{Irreversible}}'' has ominous red clouds, to match the colors of the film's [[BackToFront closing (uhhh, "opening" if you want) credits]] and the N in the logo is backwards (reverse letters are also the case with the Mars Distribution logo in the French print), to match the typography of the film's logo.
* ''Series/{{Community}}'' [[http://letseyx.tumblr.com/post/1249835319/things-i-discovered-from-watching-the-community is]] "A Dan Harmon/Russo Brothers...
** "...Tantrum."
** "...Blood Pact."
** "...Native American History Exhibit."
** "...Spectacle." [[CouchGag And so on...]]
* ''The Knights Of Prosperity'' had the B, & and B of the B&B animated logo perform a different magic act on every episode, such as the ampersand ("The Amazing Ando" - get it?) sawing the two B's apart.
* When WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic reviewed ''MoulinRouge'' (see above), he parodied said film's variation of the Fox logo, except with Chester A. Bum conducting the ChannelAwesome fanfare.
* Website/{{Google}} [[http://www.google.com/doodles/finder/2013/All%20doodles does this frequently]], to celebrate an event, whether minor or major.
* The otherwise forgettable 1971 film ''The Christian Licorice Store'' doesn't have the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=WAhXx4Jpjeg&NR=1 Cinema Center Films logo]] (or indeed the title of the film) until about 15 minutes in when a character starts running a film on a home projector and the logo (and title) come up on screen. On the screen in the film, that is.
* ''Take Me Home Tonight'', set in 1988, opens with the 1980s version of the [[Creator/RonHoward Imagine Entertainment]] logo (which is technically inaccurate, as the Imagine logo usually appeared at the ''end'' of their movies at the time).
* During the 1980s, WDIV in Detroit would broadcast Detroit Tigers baseball games, and at the end of the broadcast would feature an animated version of [[http://content.sportslogos.net/logos/53/59/full/2896.gif what was then the Detroit Tigers logo]] either [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wnMayTr3lWk&feature=youtu.be roaring and on occasion eating the opposing team's logo]] after a victory or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wicAfGQa0-E&feature=related mewling with an ice pack on its head]] after a loss.
** On the occasions where the opponent's logo would be eaten, there were usually special versions as well. For example, a victory against the Baltimore Orioles would have [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-T49aQWDLrI&t=2m8s the tiger spitting out orange feathers.]]
* While the practice has declined in popularity, it used to be common for the Christmas issue of British gaming magazines to show the magazine logo covered in snow.
* When Josh Schwartz's production company changed from College Hill Pictures to Fake Empire, the logo became a sketch pad with "FAKE EMPIRE" on it, though what's drawn on the pad depends on what show precedes it. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fake_Empire_Productions#Logo See for yourself]].
* ''Film/JackTheGiantSlayer'': The Bad Hat Harry logo has five giants walking in place of five men.
* ''Film/ShootEmUp''. The sprocket holes in the New Line Cinema logo appear to the sound of gunshots.
* IMAX:
** For the 2013 IMAX 3-D release of ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5NrIda7Gkk the IMAX logo sequence]] preceding it was in [[DeliberatelyMonochrome a sepia tone]] instead of the regular blue.
** No WarnerBros variant in ''Film/{{Godzilla 2014}}'' itself (unusually given how WB loves doing this), but IMAX viewers were treated to [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sNk0CA0o8zA a special version of the pre-movie countdown]].
* The WebVideo/VideoGamesAwesome website has dozens of banners done in the style of various video game franchise's logos.
* ''The Twelve Tasks of ComicBook/{{Asterix}}'' has [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HD6nyyiH0_M Studios Idefix]] (the Latin text is even changed to "Delirant Est Romani", [[CatchPhrase "These Romans Are Crazy"]]).
