Grindstone Intro HD

Nicknames: "The Grindstone I"

Logo: We zoom out on some kind of tunnel on a black background that reveals to be a grindstone, in form of an "O" which is grinding the letter "n", other letters form, which end up revealing the word "Grindstone", with "Grind" in an orange color and "Stone" in a grey color, with the white words "Entertainment Group" below. The grindstone stops grinding the "n", and after that, we see that it formed some kind of yellow spark.

FX/SFX: Great CGI animation!

Music/Sounds: Sounds of the grindstone grinding are heard during the whole logo, which end in a "whoosh" sound when stops grinding the letter "n".

Availability: Seen on some DVD and theatrical releases by the company during that era.
