Closing Logo Group

(October 10, 2000-May 21, 2012)

Nicknames: "Für Elise", "The Squished Ballerina", "Foot of Doom", "OUCH!", "STOMP", "The Famous Music Ruined", "Wedding Gone Wrong", "The Giants Will Kill Us All"

Logo: Set on a stage, we see a small figurine of a ballerina and a man dancing and twirling around. Then a human foot wearing a shoe stomps on the couple, crushing it. Then, "HeeL & Toe" (in white, and in a strangely-arranged Times font) appears next to the shoe.

FX/SFX: Live action.

Music/Sounds: A music box rendition of "Für Elise" plays as the dancing ballerina turns and a "stomp" sound as the couple is crushed. A squishing sound is also played as the foot comes down.

Availability: Common. First seen on the short-lived TV series Gideon's Crossing and also appeared on Century City and House, M.D.

Editor's Note: The sudden stomp and shoe crushing the figurine can startle more than a few (although it appears that the shoe isn't even crushing the figure). Otherwise, it's a humorous logo.
