1st Logo

(May 27, 2003-)

Logo: On a white background, a red oval appears. Matthew Mouse peeks out of the oval, then climbs out of it. He proceeds to paint the words:

ShiresToon S T U D I O S

with "Shires" in it's corporate font. Matthew goes back into the oval, holds his hands up, and turns into a white silhouette.

FX/SFX: 2D animation. Character animation was done by Andreas Deja while Special/Visual Effects were done by Marvin Petilla.

Music/Sounds: An nice orchestrated theme that accompanies Matthew's actions.

Scare Factor: None, it's a cute logo.

2nd Logo

(August 17, 2012-)

Logo: On a black background, a light at the top of the screen rotates counterclockwise to reveal a parchment background, on which "Shires" is printed in its usual corporate font. The word "TOON", in similar font, is then wiped in next to "Shires" by a small sprinkling of fairy dust, and then the word "STUDIOS" in a plain font fades in below "ShiresTOON", and continues to slowly zoom in until the logo fades out.

FX/SFX: Simple but effective CGI.

Music/Sounds: A calming violin piece, with sparkly sound effects accompanying the on-screen fairy-dust.

Scare Factor: None.
