Logo descriptions by TheShinyMew4Ever

Background: Superstar Spinach Productions was a joint venture between PBS and Nickelodeon. Its mascot was Popeye the Sailor, a character from the Popeye comic strip franchise. This company is owned by Johnathan Bines, the creator of the 1999 animated series, The Adventures of Scruff, which is the only known show to have this logo.

1st Logo
(September 2, 1999-November 20, 2001)

Logo: On a blue background, we see Popeye holding a can of spinach. The text "Superstar Spinach Productions" in the Arial Black font appears under it.

Effects: The text appearing.

Music/Sounds: The theme music of Popeye the Sailor, which is used in many Popeye cartoons.

Availability: Seen in the season 1 episodes of The Adventures of Scruff.

Scare Factor: Minimal.


2nd Logo
(2001-2005)

Logo: On a rainbow-colored background, we see Popeye holding a can of spinach just like the previous logo and eats the spinach out of it. The text "Superstar Spinach Productions" in red appears under it.

Effects: Popeye eating and the text appearing.

Trivia: Popeye eating his spinach was in fact recycled from the Fleischer Popeye cartoon short "I Eats My Spinach".

Music/Sounds: A bubblegum dance music that sounds like the song "Barbie Girl" by Aqua.

Availability: Seen in the season 2 episodes of The Adventures of Scruff.

Scare Factor: None, because the music is the favorite among girls.


3rd Logo
(2005-2011)

Logo: On a sea-themed background, a star then spins towards the screen from the center of the logo. When it stops, Popeye (in his Fleischer appearance) appears in it and toots his pipe. The text from the first logothen appears on the sea background: "SUPERSTAR SPINACH PRODUCTIONS".

Effects: The animation of Popeye and the spinning star.

Trivia: This logo was ripped off from the 6th Classic Paramount Cartoons Popeye logo without the mountain background.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 6th Classic Paramount Cartoons Popeye logo. Starting 2006, the song "Better Off Alone" by Alice Deejay was played with the pipe tooting sound effect intact.

Availability: Seen in the season 3-5 episodes of The Adventures of Scruff.

Scare Factor: None.


4th Logo
(2011-)

Logo: We see the text from the previous logo before in the green background with Popeye on the top of it saying "Fight to the finish because I eats my spinach
!" and eats the spinach.

Variants:
  • On the special TV movie of The Adventures of Scruff, "The 80's Are All That!" (2013), there's a parody of it. Instead of Popeye, Mr. SpinachTeeth (a character in that movie) is on the top of the logo. He then says "Did somebody say SPINACH TEETH!?" and holds a can of spinach with an image of the smiling teeth labeled on it. Then Kate Funny appears below the logo and says to Mr. ST that "a trip to PBS might cool him off", that is, smack-dab onto the cartoon bird from the PBS Kids Cartoon Studios logo, which is then followed.
  • On some episodes, the logo is silent.
  • Starting 2013, Popeye now says "I eat all the spinach and spits out the worms!".

Effects: The animation of Popeye.

Music/Sounds: The music that sounds like the Minor Circuit theme from the 1994 SNES video game Super Punch-Out!! followed by Popeye's dialogue.

Music/Sound Variants:
  • On the special TV movie of The Adventures of Scruff, "The 80's Are All That!" (2013), the music played throughout the logo is the chorus from "Tiktok" by Ke$Ha.

Availability
: Seen in the season 7 episodes of The Adventures of Scruff.

Scare Factor: None. This is the awesome logo!
