Thakayal

Logo: On a black background, we see a small white circle moving around. We then see an a microscopic spec, it zooms in to see a cartoon red ant practicing vocally (presumably scatting). It then looks at the viewer surprised, then it lifts its hand and closes one of its eyes, laughs and then opens its hand revealing a ball with orange-brown-white smoke (a la Vue Cinemas). We then zoom into the ball and then stop in an extreme close-up. It then zooms again to the viewer beyond the closeup to reveal a zooming-in orange sunburst background, which features a white-red rectangle, which in it's red borders, says the company's name in Arabic, and the text "Takhayal Entertainment" on the bottom of the rectangle. The orange sunburst disappears and the logo flashes. It then fades out.

FX/SFX: A combination of 2D for the ant and the CGI graphics for the rest. Great animation for the time.

Music/Sounds: The ant scatting, a "wah wah" when the ant spots the viewer, an "uh huh" when he peeks in his hands, laughs (sounding a bit like Woody Woodpecker), following an overly fast ascending flute sound, a high-pitched motor sound, some split-second boops (possibly overlaying a synthesizer), which segues into a whoosh and then an explosion is heard. To end this, we hear the first part of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 "Fate".

Availability: The only film in which this logo was spotted is on Young Parents/الأباء الصغار.

Editor's Note: The unexpected silence and loud sounds may be a problem for some people, along with the dramatic music altogether. The atom sounds and loud whoosh can get to some too; however, the animated red ant is too adorable and it can help lower the scare factor for a lot of people.
