FX/SFX: The logo drawing and morphing.

Music/Sounds: Sketching sounds followed by a cheesy synth orchestra.

Availability: Rare.

(1990's?)

Logo: On a dark blue background, a black or purple rectangle with a Simon and Schuster flies up, spinning as a crooked yellow rectangle with the Davidson logo does the same thing. The rectangles then come towards the screen, soon going onto their own tracks and stop spinning, with the corner of the yellow rectangle that has the Davidson logo on it overlap the black rectangle and the logo flashes.

FX/SFX: The rectangles spinning

Music/Sounds: A rising synth note collection followed by a bang.

Availability: Very rare. This was seen on Simon and Schuster collaborations. Products with this include Chicha Chicha Boom Boom. A cleaner version appeared on a demo.
