Friend Cheers Limited logo

Nicknames: "A Yin-Yang On A Stop Sign", "Galaxy Hands", "Boys & Girls Club's Ancestor", "Stop your friend cheers!"

Logo: We open with an outer space background filled with stars and a galaxy (that almost resembles the Milky Way). Some of the stars flicker one by one slowly at first, then cluster together and quickly move towards one another. The stars form a block-like pair of hands with opposing thumbs. They merge together in the same manner as two people shaking hands. After the hands come together, they turn into a slightly abstract silver octagon shape in the flash of light, while the background changes to a plain blue one. Sparkles then appear below the logo in both the left and right sides of the screen, which then wipe the text "FRIEND CHEERS LIMITED" in alongside the original Chinese name of the company, which is above it. The octagon then "shines" a little more at the end.

Variant: Sometimes the logo has the bluish tint.

FX/SFX: The stars flickering and merging together, the flash forming the octagon shape, the sparkles wiping the name in, the octagon "shining".

Music/Sounds: A synth theme that crescendos for a couple of seconds followed by various scattered notes of strings, a laser sound when the hands turn into an octagon, a five note pizzicato fanfare when the text appears and loud "ding" sounds that are heard when the stars shine on the octagon.

Music/Sounds Variant: Sometimes the music is off the timing.

Availability: Very rare. Found mostly on Chinese movies made by the company at the time.

Scare Factor: Low to medium. The bright flash and the spooky nature of the music and logo can put some people off.
