Closing Logo Group

1st Logo (1980-1993)

Will vinton 1

Logo: On a black/gray gradient background, we see the text "WILL VINTON PRODUCTIONS" in gold with a smaller "INC." on its side at the end. The text is between two pairs of lines with a star at the top line. After a few seconds, "Claymation" is written out in blue below. A registered trademark ® symbol is added at the end. This is mainly used at the beginning of Vinton's programs.

Variant: There is an in-credit variant that ends with the logo on a black BG. The company name is in blue, and "Claymation" and the star are orange. The ® is also much smaller, and near the top of the N.

FX/SFX: The writing of "Claymation".

Music/Sounds: A flourishing synth fanfare with a "ding" as the ® is added. The in-credit version uses the end theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variant: There is a musical variation on The Raisins Sold Out, which consists of an ascending piano tune, ending with a voice saying R as the registered trademark symbol appears.

Availability: Can be seen on old tapes of Will Vinton claymation specials, such as those with the California Raisins.

Scare Factor: None to minimal for the animated variants, and none for the in-credit variant.

2nd Logo (1993-2003)

Will vinton 2

Logo: On a white background, we see the text 


WILL VINTON ___S T U D I O S___ Production in purple. "Will Vinton" is written in a script font similar to the Walt Disney logo. 

Variant: Sometimes, the logo is on a gray/white gradient background without "A" and "Production". "WILL VINTON" also sparkles.

FX/SFX: The sparkling of the animated variant.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Rare; seen on TV shows and specials of the time, such as The Online Adventures of Ozzie the Elf. It also appears on The PJ's. Scare Factor: None.
