1st (known) logo

(1996-2009?)

Schpeedy.png

Logo: On a cloudy green background, the camera pans down to show a shiny and featureless golden man in starting position for track and field on a pixelated black and yellow surface. The man starts running as the camera starts to pan/zoom until he is at the left side of the screen and he freezes mid-run. The blue word "SPEEDY", in a computerized font with green slashes in the two E's, slides in from the right and settles next to the man.

FX/SFX: The man running, the camera moving and the word sliding in.

Cheesy Factor: Off the charts, especially considering the time of its debut and how long it lasted. Though it is an amateur work of computer animation, the mistakes are inexcusable. The ground is very pixelated, a few frames are skipped when the text slides in (and if you pay attention you can see the texture of the ground move a bit once the text stops) and the man's running animation is slower than the ground. The color scheme is also very interesting but unappealing at the same time.

Music/Sounds: A rising synthesized theme (sounding like the 1988 RCA/Columbia Pictures International Video logo theme at the beginning) with two synthesized orchestral hits, followed by 4 low choir notes (the last one held until the end)

Availability: Uncommon. Can be found on Video CD releases of Ultraman, dubs of Dragon Ball Z films and Tom & Jerry Kids.

2nd (known) logo

(2009?-2020)

Schpeedy-0.png

Logo: In an all-white video store, we see a spherical object crashing into walls causing dents. It then goes to the DVD section and makes all the discs fly. We see a Blu-Ray, a DVD, a Video CD and a CD, and we then zoom out and go to the Speedy Video logo, in a design similar to the previous logo, this time looking more modern, and the yellow running man is now silver, is an outline and has been radically redesigned. Video in a script font appears below, as well as the company's website.

FX/SFX: Beautiful CGI that is a major improvement over the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: A new-age theme.

Availability: Can be seen on the company's Blu-ray, DVD, Video CD and CD releases.
