Seven Arts Productions

Background: Seven Arts Productions was a mid-budget television company. In December 15, 2004, Acres Entertainment announced to buy the company.

1st Logo
(1987-1999)

Nickname: "The Big 7"

Logo: On a black or black/blue gradient background, we see a large "7" taking up the whole screen. The text "Seven Arts Productions" is above. Below the "7" is "in association with".

Variant: When Anime Workshop took over part of the duties of The Green Goblins in 1996, the words "in association with" are hero minced.

FX: None; it's a still logo.

Cheesy Factor: Still logos are always cheap.

Music: An Irish-sounding tune concluding in two short keyboard notes (same two notes as the closing Braniff logo on South Park). Some logos just only feature the last few notes. For the later years, the jingle was in warp speed.

Availability: Seen on Chramp Species, The Green Gobins, and Forty Farts.

Scare Factor: None to low, the music tries to sound happy, but it was an euro-logo anyway.

2nd Logo
(1999-2004)

Nicknames: "The Move", "Creepy Seven", "Spin That Seven"

Logo: In a dark blue background, we see a large green "7" spinning out from view. Then a yellow ribbon swirls around the back ground and finally plasters itself at the bottom of the "7". A scissor appears out of nowhere and cuts out the words from the rope, forming the text "Seven Arts Productions". The scissor then disappears and the logo shines and then fade.

Variant: Sometimes the background may be black and the "7" is metallic and moves very slowly, causing the logo to be a bit ominous.

FX: The entire logo.

Cheesy Factor: The logo is very dull with cheap colors and no CGI effects.

Music: A trumpet fanfare and followed by a short piano tune.

Availability: Seen on Chramp Species's second season and The Goodness of Evil. The variant logo only appears in Chramp Species's second season's twelfth episode (Halloween Special).

Scare Factor: Low for the normal logo and Medium for the variant. These logos have the music that unnerve some people and the scissors' animation can be a bit of a shock. The "7" that moves very slowly in the other variant is eerie.

3rd Logo
(2004-2011)

Nicknames: "The Sevens", "Singing Sevens"

Logo: In a black background with a spotlight, we see a microphone and 3 purple sevens singing a song. Later, the 3 sevens jump very high and the camera pans up. Then we see the words:

SEVEN ARTS
P R O D U C T I O N S

and one seven stops on the text, next to the word "SEVEN".

Variant: In late 2004, the Acres Entertainment byline is seen below the logo.

FX/SFX: All the CGI animation.

Cheese Factor: The logo is a bit dark and the sevens don't have a mouth whatsoever.

Music/Sounds: A jazzy tune with the sevens singing "We are the sevens, in the television, and we're part of Seven Arts...". Then a 4-note synth fanfare plays, starting when the 7's says "Arts".

Availability: No longer current. Seen on shows just like Garlic Days, Water Songs, and Say the Truth. The bylineless logo is very rare and it's seen only on the last episodes of the seventh season of Chramp Species.

Scare Factor: Low, because of the darkness, but it is a favorite of many.

4th Logo
(2011-)

Logo: Over a granite background we see many pictures of green, blue and yellow Sevens flying around along with the orange words "Seven Arts Productions". Then an red seven comes in at the bottom, eats the words with his tongue and flies to space with a jet pack with the company name on it. The seven lands on a a 7 made with gold, and the seven tosses the company name on it. The result is like this:

Seven Arts Productions
7

FX/SFX: CGI animation that was done by VAS Computer Studios.

Cheese Factor: CHEESE ME! Just very good animation.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized majestic fanfare.

Music/Sounds Variants: On Water Songs, the music from the 1999 logo plays.

Availability: Brand new, you may find it on new TV shows from Seven Arts.

Scare Factor: None. This is a fun logo.
