Magic Pokémon Productions

1st Logo
(1983-1989)

Nicknames: "If Pikachu Stomps on the Ground..."
Logo: On a red background we see Pikachu ground-pounding on the floor to reveal the Magic Pokémon Productions logo in yellow.
Music/Sounds: Pikachu shouting "Pika!"
Availability: Seen on Pinwheel and early episodes of The Simpsons
Scare Factor: Low. Pikachu's cry can catch you off guard

2nd Logo
(1989-1994)

Nicknames: "Minccino Blows Up!"
Logo: On a color-changing background. we see a Mega Man-styled Minccino who wears glasses turns red and his body inflates. When getting bigger, he blows up and then we see the Magic Pokémon Productions logo in red.
Music/Sounds: End credits of the show
Availability: Only seen on The Simpsons.
Scare Factor: None to low, both the inflation and Minccino's cheeks puffing up are funny to some viewers.

3rd Logo
(1994-1998)

Nicknames: "Rayquaza's Face", "Worldvision Rip-off!"
Logo: On a white screen, Rayquaza's head with a green aura around it zooms-out from the center. As the camera zooms-out, the green Magic Pokémon Productions logo emerges from the front, and both plaster themselves into place as the background fades to black. Afterwards, the Rayquaza shines.
Music/Sounds: Same as the 1985 Worldvision Television music.
Availability: Only seen on The Simpsons and the Paramount copies of the "Rugrats: Tales of the Crib" and "Rugrats: A Baby's Gotta Do What A Baby's Gotta Do" VHS tapes.
Scare Factor: High to NIGHTMARE. Rayquaza's bright green eyes with no pupils, the dark background, green aura, and music will sure make people run away in fear!

4th Logo
(1998-2003)

Nicknames:"Meloetta and Victini Dance", "PBS Kids Rip-off!"
Logo: On a white background, we see Meloetta singing and dancing to "This is, MAGIC POKéMON PRODUCTIONS!," with Victini singing "Woo hoo hoo!" in Michael Jackson style. Then Meloetta ad-libs while her microphone flies off, the text "Magic Pokémon Productions" in black appears as her microphone drops back on her hand, and Mew flies across the screen and shouts "Ha!" afterward. Sometimes, the logo fades out after Mew shouts "Ha!".
Music/Sounds: A techno pop tune with drums and a bass.
Availability: First seen on Ultimate Enterprise prints of television shows from the late '90s, including Snap's World. It is also seen at the end of Rugrats (before the 1998 Klasky-Csupo logo). When Niggo airs Arthur episodes from the era, it cuts to the 1977 WGBH logo right before the logo starts. It used to be on UNC-TV until late 2005 when they lost their rights to this era of programming.
Scare Factor: Low to medium; the crude drawing style, the loud jingle and the way Meloetta and Victini dance looks ugly. This logo is well-liked by people who grew up in the '90s. But it's also one of the most annoying logos ever, thanks to the irritating music.

5th Logo
(2003-2011)

Nicknames: "Kyurem's and Giratina's Faces", "The Face Strikes Again!"
Logo: Same as the 3rd logo, but instead of Rayquaza, we see Kyurem and Giratina (Origin Forme)'s heads zooming in the center.
Music/Sounds: Same as the Crown Movie Classics music.
Availability: Currently used on many programming shows.
Scare Factor: NIGHTMARE to HEART ATTACK!

6th Logo
(2011-)

Nicknames: "Liepard's and Herdier's Meeting", "Liepard's and Herdier's Wedding"
Logo: On a weird yellow background we see a shiny Liepard and a Herdier next to a cake. Liepard is in a wedding dress and Herdier is in the wedding tuxedo and the text "Magic Pokemon Productions" fade in.
Variant: Sometimes, N comes in and says "Just what is going on in here?"
Music/Sounds: A wedding organ and an off-screen voice saying "you can now kiss the bride!"
Availability: Seen on current episodes of The Simpsons.
Scare Factor: None. It's their best logo so far!
