Nicknames: "Für Elise", "The Squished Ballerina", "Foot of Doom", "OUCH!", STOMP, "The Famous Music Ruined", "Wedding Gone Wrong", "The Giants Will Kill Us All"
Logo: Set on a stage, we see a small figurine of a ballerina and a man dancing and twirling around. Then a human foot wearing a shoe stomps on the couple, crushing it. Then, "HeeL & Toe" (in white, and in a strangely-arranged Times font) appears next to the shoe.
Variant: In 2012, the NBCUniversal fades in below.
FX/SFX: Live action.
Cheesy Factor: If you look closely, you can see that the foot does not actually stomp the couple.
Music/Sounds: A music box rendition of "Für Elise" plays as the dancing ballerina turns and a "stomp" sound as the couple is crushed. A squishing sound is also played as the foot comes down. In 2012, The loud stomp was used.
. Availability: Common. First seen on the short-lived TV series Gideon's Crossing and also appeared on Century City' and House, M.D.
Scare Factor: Low to nightmare. The sudden stomp and shoe crushing the figurine can startle more than a few, and Medium for nightmare for the 2012 one. Otherwise, it's a humorous logo.
