3Strike Productions

Background: 3Strike Productions is an animation studio, formed by arcade and gambling company Sterns & Ramsay Amusements in the late-90s. 3Strike was based out of Sterns & Ramsay's main headquarters in Anaheim, California, but also had offices in Surrey and Vancouver, British Columbia via acquisitions of Tundra Arts and Saffron Studios respectively. 3Strike primarily produced animations for PC games, but later broke into television very briefly. 3Strike still operates in Anaheim, outliving their owners who filed for bankruptcy in 2009, but their Canadian branches were spun-off for monetary reasons.

1st Logo
(1995-2003)

Logo: On a black background, we see a red picture frame with three separate boxes depicting a baseball game. The first box has a baseball player throw the ball, the second has one at the bat and the last has the catcher who gets the ball. "X"s form inside of the boxes and they soon jolt up and spin. "ANIMATION PRODUCED BY" wipes in above as the jolting occurs and the background flashes to white. "3STRIKE Productions", "Made in Anaheim, California", and "A division of Sterns & Ramsay Amusements Inc." appear in black.

FX/SFX: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: Some synth notes.

Availability: Seen on a number of PC games. It also appeared on The Halloween Kids, though original airings on Fox cut this out.
