Background: Boxing Cat Films is Tim Allen's production company that was formed as early as 1990, and became fully active in 2002, only to get shut down in 2006. It re-formed in 2009 after a short hiatus.


1st Logo (1990)
[]

Logo: On a grey box we see a cat in a boxing pose (encased in a yellow circle). The cat rapidly throws some air punches before freezing. The words "BOXING" "C A T" and "PRODUCTIONS" is beneath the logo in a Times New Roman font.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The punching animation, which, along with the overall design, look very cheap, considering it was a vanity card for a standup comedy. Then again, this could've just been a placeholder logo.

Music/Sounds: Punching noises, followed by the sound of a bell.

Availability: Appeared on Tim Allen: Men Are Pigs.


2nd Logo (November 1, 2002-)
[]

GW287H215

Nickname: "The Boxing Cat"

GW383H214

Logo: On a white background, we see a close-up of some arms with boxing gloves, punching a punching bag several times for a few seconds. Then it punches the screen causing us to zoom out to reveal a cat in a boxing pose wearing red shorts with a belt saying "BC" on it as its head turns down to reveal that it's standing on a white rectangular box. The words "BOXING CAT", in a black rectangular shape, and "FILMS", both in a Copperplate Font, zooms out.

Variants:

  • There is a still variant of the logo that is in the white box on a black background.
  • On Crazy on the Outside, the background turns into an aging piece of paper, and the camera moves to the left as we transition into the movie.
  • At the end of Tim Allen Presents: The Home Improvement User's Guide, a shortened version is used.

FX/SFX: The cat punching the bag, the zoom-out of the logo. None for the still variant. Decent CGI for an early-2000s logo.

Music/Sounds: A couple of punching sounds, followed by a loud orchestral hit. None for the still variant.

Availability: Can be seen on films from the company, such as The Santa Clause 2, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, and Crazy on the Outside. This logo strangely did not appear on The Shaggy Dog.
