Ultimate Enterprise StudiosThis is a featured page

Background: The Ultimate Enterprise Studios was formed in 1964 by Crystal Shinymew Franks (not Mae Franks. Just the different) as Ultimate Enterprise Studios Corporation, renamed The Ultimate Enterprise Studios in 1975, sold to her sister, Maria Shinymew Franks for a while in 1985, and went popular on 2006. The Ultimate Enterprise Studios participates in shows and movies such as Go Go Maki! (1987), Snap's World (1984), Myuui (1986), Chalkzone: The Movie (2012), Pocky & Rocky (1992), Robot Carnival (a promoted movie available exclusively at K-Mart in 1986), Fire Prince (another promoted cartoon available exclusively at Safeway, Blimpie, and Sears in 1987), Howl's Moving Castle: Special Edition (a promoted anime available exclusively at Walmart or other stores in 2012), Crowing Pains, and Gotta Catch Her! (another promoted cartoon available exclusively at Walmart and Food City from 2011). It later purchases Squirrel/Mole Studios in 1983, Animutation Pictures in 2008 and Frederator Studios in 1999. In 1997, The Ultimate Enterprise Studios tried to purchase Klasky-Csupo, Inc., but it failed. Starting 1983, Alice Williams joins the company as the English dubber for most of her anime shows and films.

Nicknames: "Snap", "Another Boring Logo"

Logo: On a blue background with a deep black ball, we see Snap in his 1980-1998 appearance, some stars, and the blue word "The Ultimate Enterprise Studios". The words "A Crystal Franks Productions" is seen below it.

Variants:

  • On The New Army, Snap is replaced by Yuji Muton and the logo is red instead of blue.
  • On one episode of Snap's World, this logo is seen during the parody of the 4th logo below.
  • On some episodes of Party Man, Snap appears in the 80's clothing dancing to the music.
  • On the 1985 anime film, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, Snap turns red, says "Merry Christmas!" and flies through the sky. Also, the background was a night sky instead of the blue starry background.
  • On the 2013 film Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and the Misfit Toys of Christmastown, Hermey the Elf was there instead of Snap. Then Rudolph pops out of the letter U and says "HERMEY! IT'S NOT CHRISTMAS YET!". Hermey then says "Alright. I'll be right over!" and walks away from the logo and so did Rudolph.
  • On the CBS airing of Scats! and Ryo The Cat: The Festival of All Magic, Snap was replaced with MetalGreymon (from the 1979 film Digimon) points his finger to the audience and says "The chocolate spinach wants you now!". This does not appear in the 2013 film Doug's New Journal.
  • On Medical Challenge, Snap wears the doctor's suit. On the final episode, he is hooked on life support on a hospital bed throughout the last credit roll. The credits run as usual over a picture Snap, with life support equipment attached on either side. You can hear the beeps of the heart monitor over the end theme, too. After the credits complete, the company name fades in and Snap flatlines and dies, with a long, high-pitched beep heard. This variation is especially rare, as reruns of the finale plastered it over with the typical credits.
  • On The Jetsons Kids (2011), the background was set in Orbit City from The Jetsons. Also, Snap says "I'm at the Jetsons now!"
  • On the pilot episodes of Magical Mutant Fighting Ponies (1987), Snap flew off from the logo.
  • On the season 1-3 episodes of Magical Mutant Fighting Ponies (1987), Snap inflates like a balloon and says "Bucko, they got me!". This variation's animation was reused on the Chalkzone TV Movie "The Big Blow Up".
  • On The Battle Band Show, Snap usually shouts "Sayonara!" in Tama's voice.On the English-language dub, he says "Goodbye!" instead.
  • On Inspector Gadget, Snap transforms into his helicopter form and flies away. Then it cuts to the DiC logo.
  • On the 2011 anime. Kabutashi Man!, Snap (now in his 2009-present appearance) gives a thumbs up.
  • There is a red tint variant at the end of the 1984 short, Me, Wolf and the Rooster.
  • On Totally Luckyman!, Snap stands on the logo as his cape waves onscreen.
  • On the 1985 anime, Rocky the Rabbit in Alien Attack!, Snap wears a baseball hat, shouts "Lets Go!" and flies away.
  • On Chalkzone, Snap (in his 1998-2009 appearance) usually shouts "Bye, Rudy!".
  • On Chalkzone: The Movie, the background is yellow and the text is red.
  • On The Ryo The Cat Show, Snap was replaced by Ryo the Cat saying "Bye!".
  • On Chalkzone: The Next Generation, Snap flies in and says "Thanks for watching this show!" to the viewers.
  • On the Chalkzone TV Movie "The Big Blow Up" and The Fairly Oddparents TV Movie "Channel Chasers", the white word "Television" replaces "Studios". This logo appeared after the Frederator logo on the June 15, 2004, July 27, 2006, and the January 30, 2008 airings of "The Big Blow Up" and the July 4, 2004 and October 20, 2007 airings of "Channel Chasers" on Nickelodeon and YTV, plastering the Nickelodeon Productions logo.
  • On certain Nintendo specials such as How Bowser Stole Easter!, Valentine's Day is Bowser's Day and Bowser Vs. Mario, the Nintendo byline appears below the logo right after Snap jumps.
  • On 2013 film, The Magical Pokémon: Mew, Snap gets sick, his cheeks puffing out and vomits blue paint on the logo as the music abruptly stops and winds down. We hear a crowd yelling "EWWWWWWWWW!" and groaning in disgust as Snap gives a sick look and runs off. This variant is seen after the closing credits.
  • On Star Fox, Snap turns from his blue color to red.
  • On the Chalkzone episode, Double Trouble, the video of Snap (in his 1998-2009 appearance) holding a microphone and sing "Midnight Train". Also, word "Television" replaces "Studio". This was seen on the December 15, 2008, and November 30, 2011 airings of the episode on Nickelodeon and YTV, plastering the Nickelodeon Productions logo. It is also intact after this episode on the 2008 DVD and Blu-Ray of The Very Best of Snap.
  • On promotional releases of Howl's Moving Castle: Special Edition, the background and text are green and next to Snap are the words "Sponsored by" with the Applebee's logo, the Church''s Chicken logo, the Wal-Mart logo, and the Pepsi logo below "Sponsored by".
  • In Chalkzone Gets Magical, Snap (in his 1998-2009 appearance) jumps up and down. Then Rudy's voice yells "Snap, quit jumping up and down!". Snap then says "sorry!" and flies away.
  • On The Old Times, Snap appears in his 1966-1980 appearance.
  • On Alice's Super Show!, Snap was replaced by Yoshi and the background is green.
  • On Seasons 1-2 of Regular Show, Mordecai [from the said show], replaces Snap.
Trivia: In 1984, Snap becomes an official mascot of the Ultimate Enterprise Studios. Also, this logo made a surprise appearance on the early airing of Secret Mountain Fort Awesome episode, "Secret Mountain Fort Love," by accident. Fortunately, the Secret Mountain Fort Awesome variant of the Cartoon Network Studios logo replaced this logo from that awful show, and it also made a surprise appearance in a reissue of the animutation "Hyakugojyuuichi Forever" and also on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1987).

FX/SFX: None.

Music: None really, except the end theme of the show. Starting in 1986, a 4-note jingle was added. The sounds for the variants usually describes above, but depends on some situations:
  • On Alice's Super Show!, the music is "Break My Stride" by Matthew Wilder.
  • On Rocky the Rabbit in Alien Attack!, music is "Don't You Want Me" by Human League.
  • On Scats!, the song "Hey Guy" by Ken Lazlo is played when MetalGreymon points to the viewers.
  • On Ryo The Cat: The Festival of All Magic, same as above, except "Hey Guy" is replaced with a speed-up version of "Kiss Me" by Trance.

Availability: Common, seen on releases from the era such as The Battle Band Show, llll, Berlin, Snap's World, The New Army, Alexandria, Alice's Super Show!, Party Man, and others. It only appeared on one movie in 1984, Mario Bros., where this logo debuted in. This logo is also seen on Tokyo Pig except for the episode "The Incredible Shrinking School", which has the previous logo instead. Since 2005, this logo is now spotted on the current airings of Chalkzone after the Frederator Studios logo, & before the Nickelodeon Productions logo. The Medical Challenge variant is seen before the Squirrel/Mole Studios "Neon Secret & Morocco" logo.
The MetalGreymon variant is very tricky, as it only appears on the CBS airings of Scats! and Ryo the Cat: The Festival of All Magic (after the Super Jump Punch! logo). This variant is cut off in Doug's New Journal due to Scats! and Ryo the Cat: The Festival of All Magic being the part of the animated segments, although it was left intact on the DVD of The Champions Are All That!. Also seen on The Ryo The Cat Show and the pilot and the season 1-3 episodes of Magical Mutant Fighting Ponies (1987).

Scare Factor: None. Snap is the one of favorites of many, mainly the user TheShinyMew. The Medical Challenge finale variation may be extremely upsetting. Compared to the next logo below, it's nothing!


5th Logo
(1987-2003, 2010-)

Ultimate Enterprise Studios (1987-2003)Ultimate Enterprise Studios - CLG Wiki's Dream LogosUltimate Enterprise Studios (Berlin)Ultimate Enterprise Studios (Patlabor)

Nicknames: "GLITTER! :D", "The Thing and the Face of Doom", "Evil Thing and Face", "My Reason For Why Some Shows from 1987-2003 had that Logo", "My Own Worst Nightmare", "Why Ultimate Enterprise Studios, WHY?!?!?!", "Another Personification of All That is Evil", "The 90's Ultimate Enterprise Studios"

Logo: On a white background with glitter, which quickly changes to red, the yellow text "The Ultimate Enterprise Studios" zooms out in the teeth-like thing. When it goes to it's desired place, a mysterious flash occurs. The BG changes to black and the text becomes blue. Then the words "A Crystal Franks Productions" appears below it. Suddenly, the distorted eyes and teeth that looks like a face from the from the Dynamikun logo appears out of nowhere! This logo was animated by Joe Williams, who is fired from the 1985 television series, Alice's Super Show!, on February 7, 1987.

Variants:

  • On Mega Man, the logo is in warp speed.
  • On Level Four (2002 film), this was done in the 8-bit form. The closing variant has it with a glitched state, which is the reference to the glitches found in video games.
  • On the 1997 VHS release of City Hunter (1997 anime film), the logo is zoomed out further than usual and below the logo are the words "SPONSORED BY" and the BP, Sears, and Circuit City logos.
  • On the 2000 VHS release of Berlin, the logo is still and next to it on the left are the words "Sponsored by" with the Taco Bell logo below "Sponsored by".
  • On the 2002 VHS release of Patlabor (2002 anime film), the words "SPONSORED BY" and the McDonald's and Dollar General logos appear on the top.
  • On one episode of Snap's World, there is a parody of it. The logo plays, but then Snap kicks the evil face. Then it goes to the 1984 logo and then Snap says "Ahhhhhhhh... better.".
  • On the 1987-1998 episodes of The Ryo The Cat Show, the background is red and the "teeth-and-face thing" was replaced with Ryo with a text remained intact.
  • On the seasons 4-5 episodes of Alice's Super Show!, the background is green and the "teeth-and-face thing" was replaced with Yoshi's head.
  • 2010-present resurrection ("2010's Ultimate Enterprise" variant): This logo was resurrected. This time, instead of the regular Ultimate Enterprise Studios logo, it has the "2010's Ultimate Enterprise" logo from the next logo below.
  • The original version of this logo was filmed, and was used from 1987 to 1999.
  • Videotaped versions have more crisp and smooth animation. This was used from 1988 to 2003, and 2010-present.
  • There is a rare variant in pink and white. It was spotted on a VHS of Magical Mutant Fighting Ponies.
  • There is a rare "Bottomed" version of the filmed "Evil Thing and Face" where viewers can see two separate frames.
  • A offset version of the filmed variant exists.

Trivia:
  • It made a surprising appearance in the early airing in the Pokémon episode "Island of the Giant Pokémon" in the US in 1998. It seems that there was an editing mistake. It appears that the Ultimate Enterprise Studios was having problems with the logos due to a possible lawsuit and used this logo. Luckily, in 1999, the 4Kids logo plastered this horrid logo in current airings of the show.
  • This logo made a cameo as a live character at the beginning of Pokémon Galaxy All-Stars: The Quest of the Glowing Mew (2012) during the PBS logo. The distorted eyes and teeth were later used in the Dynamikun Productions logo.
Cheesy Factor: On the bottomed version of the filmed variant, we can see the green screen the eyes and mouth are on.

FX/SFX: The zoom in, and the flash. For the Berlin and the Patlabor variant, none.

Music/Sounds: A warbling Moog synthesizer piece that sounds like the music played at the end of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese commercials or the beginning of the main theme to Crash Bandicoot 3, followed by an announcer saying "In the presentation of Ultimate Enterprise Studios". The announcer is Ryan Napier.

Music and Sound Variants:

  • On the 2000 VHS release of Berlin, the 1982 Turner Programing Service music was played and Serena Williams (the voice talent of Snap and the actress who starred Terri Nun in this movie) says "In the presentation of Ultimate Enterprise Studios... sponsored by Taco Bell!" in the cheerful tone
  • On the 2002 VHS release of Patlabor, the 1990 PBS Kids music was played and Ryan Napier says "In the presentation of Ultimate Enterprise Studios... sponsored by McDonalds and Dollar General".
  • On Mega Man, there was no music.
    On Level Four (2002 film), the 8-bit music playing throughout the logo. The closing variant has the screeching noises.
  • On the seasons 4-5 episodes of Alice's Super Show!, the music is "Words" by Missing Persons.
  • On the 1987-1998 episodes of The Ryo The Cat Show, the music is "You Think You're a Man" by Divine and Ryo says "Thanks for watching me!".
  • Oddly enough, the sound effects from the first variant of the first Cartoon Network Studios logo was accidentally used at the end of the Regular Show episode, "Free Cake" (2010). This was fixed in 2011 onwards.

Availability: Rare, seen on their shows such as Mega Man, Snap's World, Yuji Jitsu and Dynamo during the time. It was also seen on the VHS version of Berlin and Patlabor. The "Yoshi" variant is very uncommon and was usually found in seasons 4-5 episodes of Alice's Super Show!. The Ryo variant is uncommon and is found on the 1987-1998 episodes of The Ryo The Cat Show. Also found on the season 4-10 episodes of Magical Mutant Fighting Ponies (1987). Currently seen on the episodes of the Regular Show starting season 5.


Scare Factor: High to NIGHTMARE, because the face, the teeth thing, the flash combined with the scary music can catch most people off-guard. However, it's less scary for those who have expected to see it. Medium for the Berlin,the Patlabor variant, and the parody. The parody doesn't allow you to see it again. Low to Medium for the "Yoshi" variant and low for the The Ryo The Cat Show variant. Medium for the Level Four opening variant and NIGHTMARE for the closing variant.

  • On Gotta See Em' All!, the text appears in the Pokémon font.
