1st Logo

(1956-1958)

Nickname: AAP

Logo: The initials a.a.p. appear in lowercase with the p having a very long stem. Alongside the p's stem the words ASSOCIATED ARTISTS PRODUCTIONS INC. appear and below all that is the word Presents written in cursive.

Closing Logo: At the end of a short the logo appears with the following message above it: This picture has been presented by Also the full name of the company appears horizontally under the initials with a space where the p's stem is.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: Some of the colors they used for the logo looked bad when colorizing the Popeye shorts.

Music/Sounds: The beginning or the end of the music in whatever short has the logo depending on where the logo appears.

Availibility: Can still be seen on the Fleschier Popeye shorts when they're seen on Boomerang.

Scare Factor: Low pretty innocuos being a still logo and all. If the short uses dramatic music when it comes up though that may one a little antsy.

2nd Logo

(1956-1958)

Nicknames: AAP II The AAP Stars

Logo: Kind of a more three-dimensional look compared to the first. The blue red or gray background has a bumpy look on it and the logo itself (which is basically the same as the previous logo) is yellow and 3D. In the opening the initials back away a bit and then the words associated artists productions and presents appear (with presents in script) along with characters from whatever short is coming up (either Popeye or Warner Bros.). Some copyright info is shown at the bottom left.

Closing Title: The closing titles is the same as the first except the placement of the company's name is different (it appears on two lines at the left of the p's stem).

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The camera panning back. The characters and text fading in.

Music/Sounds:

  • Popeye the Sailor (Famous Studio): The Popeye intro theme. The ending logo is Popeye shorts only and the music is an abridged version of Popeye the Sailor.
  • Merrie Melodies: The first half of the Merrie Melodies theme.

Availibility: Uncommon Looney Tunes are no longer rerun on TV until recently. The Popeye version can be seen on Boomerang occasionally. However WB is currently attempting to restore many shorts meaning the return of their original logos rather than the AAP ones. So it may not be availible as it once was. Cartoon Network keeps this logo on 2 pre-1948 Daffy Duck cartoons surprisingly.

Scare Factor: Low The moving letters can be weird to some. It also depends again on the music being used.
