Background[]

Snee-Oosh Inc. is the vanity card of Hey Arnold! creator Craig Bartlett, named after an area of the Swinomish Indian reservation in Washington, USA.

(October 7, 1996-June 8, 2004, February 15, 2016-May 16, 2019)[]

Nickname: "The Totem Pole"

Logo: On a brown background, there is a tall, stylized totem pole bird, which has a yellow haze around it. Under it are the words "SNEE-OOSH INC.", made out of brown sticks.

Variants:

  • The early version of the logo had the logo slightly zoomed out with "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" (in the Hey Arnold! logo font) above the logo.
  • On Party Wagon, the logo has a white haze, is zoomed in a bit, sepia toned, and has a film effect. Also, the fontwork is slightly different.
  • Ready Jet Go! uses the above variant, but the logo zooms in slightly, in color, and lacks the film effect. It is also in the 16:9 aspect ratio. The logo also has a flash at the end to transition to the Wind Dancer Films logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • When Nickelodeon revamped their credits pushback on their shows in August 2001 (which as a result cuts off the ending theme in favor of promos), the logo gained a theme. It consists of a chorus singing the company name, followed by a mysterious flute/gong tune (similar to Native American tribe woodwind music) which played over the following Nickelodeon Productions logo. Composed by Jim Lang, the head composer for Hey Arnold!.
  • An airing on the Hey Arnold! episode, "April Fools' Day" actually replaced the musical version and instead used the end theme from the episode, "Timberly Loves Arnold/Eugene, Eugene!" which played over the Nickelodeon logo that followed as well.

Availability: The original version survives on DVDs of Hey Arnold!. It was also preserved on all airings of the series on TeenNick's Nick Rewind block until it was shuttered in 2022. The variation with the chorus has not appeared since the show was last aired on Nicktoons Network in 2008, and all airings of the series on TeenNick (prior to them adopting the "credits on the bottom of the screen" format) use the early variant of this logo. Also seen on the Cartoon Network pilot Party Wagon and the PBS Kids television show Ready Jet Go!. On October 2015 to May 2017 airings of Hey Arnold! on The Splat, this logo is replaced by the 1998 Klasky-Csupo logo for split-screen credits mistakes.
