The Mascot Pictures Corporation was a small movie production company established in 1927 by Nat Levine to produce film serials and B-westerns, merging after with Consolidated Film and Monogram Pictures to form "Republic Pictures" (later known as "Republic Entertainment, Inc.") in 1934.


Nicknames: "That Ripoff of the MGM/Universal Logos", "Tiger '27", "Tiger From Hell"

Logo: On a cloudy background, we see a model of planet earth, with a tiger on it. Then under it we see the words "MASCOT PICTURES", rounding the globe. The tiger roars twice (a la Leo the Lion).

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The letters moving, pretty hi-tech for its time, but it's still cheesy.

Music/Sounds: The tiger roaring.

Availability: Can be seen on Mascot releases from its time. Was restored back in 1988 on the movie The Phantom Empire for TV as a syndication package.

Scare Factor: Medium. People who don't like close-up aggressive tigers won't like this logo.
