West Virginia State Police Statement/NoticeEdit
Public statement on Parkersburg, WV "incident" on December 22nd. (Which was actually not Ryan.)
Note by the "creator": This is a dream logo, you cannot see it in real life!
Background: GoAnimate Pictures was a movie company making movies made by GoAnimate, and also distributes prints from various movie companies throughout the country. It was founded in 1912 and was headquartered in San Diego, CA. They released their first movie (after 73 years in the making), The Guy Who Got Shot, in 1985. Since the folding of Business Friendly Studios in 2006, as well as a resignation from the said company, they now started to make their own TV shows. During the early 2000's, a limited number of Cheri Pictures movies listed GoAnimate Home Video to be its distributor. The sales had turned out very well, and all statistics were popular for Cheri and GoAnimate. It had gotten up to the point that the company asked one of its soul companies, Pretty Girl Enterprises to be its distributor. Starting in 2012, most of their movies and TV shows were distributed via TimeWarner.
In late 1993, the producer of Sara, David Gorine, created the famous GoAnimate characters that GoAnimate Pictures used from the 90s, half of the 2010's, and 2013 to now, and served as mascots officially in 1999. Gorine named the characters Eric, Brian, Kate and Mrs. Read by the time the characters were created. The characters were voiced by David Gorine and Sara Jane Sherman in pre-2010, then Louis Beckler and Jackie Breddinsch in 2010-2013, and finally, Mike Brandon and Sarah Runoome in 2013 to now. Anyways, on April 23, 2012, Disney wanted to put their shows on GoAnimate networks, which GoAnimate accepted to do. Disney has a joint venture with Viacom, that produces all Nickelodeon shows. Viacom also allows Disney to show Nickelodeon shows on the GoAnimate Network and the Go!Animate Channel. But, as of April 2, 2017, Comcast bought GoAnimate after TimeWarner agreed to the company to sell GoAnimate for US$5,000,000 after Comcast was threatened to be bought out by CBS. However, In 2016, Comcast was bought and folded into the International Family Entertainment, however, NBC still exists as a major television network. On September 4, 2017, Comcast repurchased itself, eventually bringing back Comcast to when it was in 2016 by making an agreement with TimeWarner that Tori Net would be a joint venture between the two large companies.
The characters even have their own show called Comedy World, on The Go!Animate Channel.
The cute little ditty from logo 6 is so popular that it's used in logos with Eric in it. It is known as "Eric's Ditty".
On January 1, 2017, GoAnimate Pictures will be celebrating a special 105th-anniversary with a new logo. In 2016, GoAnimate Pictures purchased the post-1983 Video-magic library.
GoAnimate Pictures (First Era)Edit
Logo: On a black background, we see three pieces of paper layered on top of each other with a stickguy figure running, flying from the top of the screen. The words "Go!Animate" wiggle in from the right and settle into place. The words "Produced by" fade in above.
Music/Sounds: None. In some movies, it's the closing of the movie.
Availability: Rare. First seen on The Guy Who Got Shot.
Scare Factor: None to medium. Depends on what you think of the music/silence.
Nickname: "The In-credit Logo", "The Boring GoAnimate Logo", "Where's Eric?"
Logo: This is not a logo, just an in-credit text, reading:
PRETTY GIRL ENTERPRISES
for the start of movies, and
© (year, in Roman numerals)
for the end of movies.
- Starting in 1994, the logo was replaced with "In Association With GoAnimate Pictures".
- From 2006 to 2010, the logo was replaced with "GoAnimate Studios".
Cheesy Factor: Could they at least put more effort into this one?
Music/Sounds: The opening of the movie, or none.
Availability: Current. First seen on movies that are distributed by Pretty Girl Enterprises from 1991-1994. The movie "B.O.O.M.", the first movie to use this logo, was plastered with the 2006 logo on reruns and the DVD release. In-credits still use this logo.
Scare Factor: None. It's harmless. You just don't like it like this. Even if one person comes to your house and decides to watch a movie from this time, they will just laugh at this logo. Things are only to get worse from here on out...
(1994-2000, March 9, 2018)
Nicknames: "Comedy World Characters", "Eric Can Dance?"
Logo: We see, on a black background, the Night Vision Goggles (or rarely, fireworks) effect. It then disappears, and then Eric, Brian, Kate and Mrs. Read slide from all 4 sides of the screen. Then Eric slides in, followed by Brian, Kate, and Mrs. Read. Then we see them dancing in the center of the screen, with GOANIMATE PICTURES above them, and a byline in a box below them as well.
- (1994-1996, March 9, 2018) A News Corporation Company
- (1996-2000) A Tori Net Company
- There is another version where the effect and the 4 characters slide in are cut out, And it just starts with Eric sliding in. Also in this version, the box with the byline is white instead of green.
- There is an alternate version where the logo is off-center and the text is in a different font.
- In Italian GoAnimate prints of "The Land Before Time" from 1997-2000, Eric, Brain, Kate and Mrs. Read are replaced with Littlefoot, Cera, Ducky, and Petrie. This variant is ultra rare, as it was plastered with the 5th logo in 2000 onwards. Only one copy with this logo exists, and it's not very easy to find.
- At the end of The Story of GoAnimate Pictures, Network and Television, the logo is still.
FX/SX: Characters dancing.
Music/Sounds: A remix of the ABC jingle from the 2000's. May have the opening theme play over it.
- On Comedy World: The Movie and the sequel to The Brian Movie, it's silent. It was believed to be an error.
- At the end of The Story of GoAnimate Pictures, Network and Television, the closing of the movie.
Availability: You may think it's common, but it's actually extremely rare. The last movie you possibly know that has this logo is Sara, which last aired with this logo on TV on February 23, 2001. It can also be seen on the "GoAnimate Archives" channel but, expect the Warner Bros. Pictures logo before it. Also seen on The Story of GoAnimate Pictures, Network and Television released on March 9, 2018.
Scare Factor: Minimal for the opening theme. For the music, it's low to high. It might get into some, especially people who don't like loud music. For the silent version, it's low, and you may expect a sudden noise to scare you. One for all, it's an absolute eyesore for people who don't like black backgrounds.
Nickname: "Eric Can Dance? II"Logo: A still variant of the 1st logo, but the text is moved to below the characters and in a different font.
Trivia: This logo was made coinciding with the start of GoAnimate's TV distribution, even though they haven't already made shows yet.
- (1997-2012) A Tori Net Company
- (2006-2012) A GoAnimate Kids Channel Company (for educational shows)
- (2012-2014) A TimeWarner Company
- This variant is byline-less on Camp Dubziz and Uh Oh!
Variant: From 2006 to 2010, the text read "GOANIMATE STUDIOS".
Music/Sounds: Silent or the end theme of the show, but only 2 times a shortened version of the previous logo's music plays.
Availability: Extremely rare. Seen on the GoAnimate original premieres of "Camp Dubziz", "Road Rash", "The Sara Show", and "Uh-Oh!". two days after this logo made its debut. Also seen on shows distributed by the company. It can also be seen on the "GoAnimate Archives" channel but, just like the last logo, expect the Warner Bros. Pictures logo before it. Extinct for the variant with blue text.
Scare Factor: Medium to high. It's even worse than the previous logo. It just looks ugly. The silence doesn't help at all, but it's tamer with the end theme.
Nickname: "Eric Clones"
Logo: On a blue background, we see two Erics dancing, with GOANIMATE PICTURES between them.
- Starting in 2001, there is a byline reading "A TORI NET COMPANY".
- There is an animated version, the two Erics fly across the screen and the text fades in below.
- On That Sinking Feeling, the background is grey and the text is yellow. This was quickly plastered by logo 12 on reruns and the re-released movie. The original DVD has this logo intact with the byline reading "A TIMEWARNER COMPANY".
Trailer Variants: In the end, a scape door appears. after a second, it disappears, revealing the logo again, but the text is replaced by one of these:
- Coming Soon to a Theater Near You
- Coming to Rental Stores (The UK only)
- Coming Soon to own on DVD and Video
- Now on Video
- Now on DVD
- Feature Presentation
Music/Sounds: Silent. May have the opening theme of the movie.
Availability: Has rare written all over it. Expect this with closing music. Was intact on Bright Idea when it was released on video by Artisan Entertainment. It can also be seen on the "GoAnimate Archives" channel but... you know, I think you've already gotten the point. No need to say this anymore.
Scare Factor: None. It's much tamer than the previous 2 logos.
(late 2000/early 2001-2003, 2010-2014)

A mouse then appears and goes off screen, and puts an orange G to the left of the O and sets it into place, forming the GoAnimate logo. The logo zooms out, and "STUDIOS" fades in below.

(September 17, 2011-May 17, 2013)
By this time, the Tori Net company had been mostly discontinued when they are bought from TimeWarner, which kept the GOANIMATE PICTURES name.''
Nicknames: "Celebration", "100 Years", "Special Logo"
Logo: On a city with a banner reading "GoAnimate Pictures 100th Anniversary" We see many GoAnimate characters. Fireworks are popping. The gold cloud zooms in to reveal a gold background and zooms to see the same characters as logos 1, 2 and 6. The Hand slide zooms to text 100th Anniversary and A TimeWarner byline below that.
- There is a version where some characters are gone. One movie is "Sara 3".
- On movies released from September 17 to December 31, 2011, There is a version where "100th Anniversary" is gone. The byline is smaller in this variant. Look for this variant on "Comedy Goes Wild".
- On movies released from January 1 to May 17, 2013, There is a version where "Celebrating Over 100 Years" is seen above the text. It is in a darker shade than usual, due to film detonation or a mistake at GoAnimate Studios.
- There is an extremely rare variant on an episode of Comedy World where above GoAnimate Pictures it says, "CELEBRATING THE WORLD NOT ENDING AND 100 YEARS OF". It is usually plastered on syndication and DVD by the previous logo.
- Sometimes, the logo is still.
- On one 2012 episode of Comedy World, the characters are holding balloons.
- A rare short version was made with only the characters and text already formed. This was seen on season 1 of Bedroom Antics. However, season 2 has the normal logo.

- June 17, 2012-May 17, 2013: Same as the Universal Pictures 1990 logo.
Availability: No longer current. This logo made its debut in the GoAnimate 2000 (also known as GoAnimate Remastered) series on the "GoAnimate Kidz & Teenz" channel, which is from 2012, and the "Over 100 Years" variant was beautifully restored on the 2017 DVD and Blu-ray releases of the GoAnimate 2000 films, distributed by Warner Home Entertainment; ironically enough, current reruns of this series aren't so lucky; except for "Eric's Great Adventure," this logo was plastered with either the Warner Bros. Television, ABC Television, or the later GoAnimate Pictures logos on reruns. Robyn's Journey kept the "Over 100 Years" logo when it was released on video and DVD, so you can see it on there. On "Boomerang", Chef Eric and Comedy World have this logo intact. The "100th anniversary" and "Over 100 years" variant was seen on The Eric Show with balloons, these variants were sadly plastered with the 2015 logo! These variants thankfully were restored for DVD and Blu-Ray in 2016. The rare short version can be seen in Bedroom Antics for season 1, but replaced by the 2015 logo on the DVD release GoAnimate: An Eric Specialty with Eric and Brian and Bedroom Antics. It was restored on Blu-Ray releases though. This logo was also used to plaster the Business Friendly Studios logos.
Scare Factor: Low.
(May 18, 2013-2014)
Nicknames: "Eric Pointing", "What Are You Doing?", "Eric Alone"
Logo: On a green background, we see Eric pointing at the screen. Below him is the text: "GOANIMATE PICTURES".
- The network, Nickelodeon, normally edits out GoAnimate Pictures logos. "Rich Dad" keeps this logo intact, except they put in an "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" line below GOANIMATE PICTURES.

- On reruns of The Sara Show of the era, Brian, Kate, and Mrs. Read come in and say to the logo, "Screw you, Eric! Screw you! We're with you, for god's sake!", then they kick it, however, Brian stubs his toe in the process. They jump off-screen as Brian holds his foot while howling in pain. The music is the cute little ditty due to their appearances. Look for this variant on GoAnimate Adultz.
- In it's last few days, Eric is replaced by all characters dancing, or the text is larger than usual.
Music/Sounds: Two trumpet notes.
Availability: No longer current. Can occasionally be seen on PBS and GoAnimate Adultz. The rerun Sara Show variant is seen on the last episode of The Eric Show (2006-2016) but "for god's sake!" was taken out, though their mouths sync it. Also seen on the final season of Bedroom Antics. The Nelvana variant is rare as it is plastered more in the USA than it is in Canada. The BA variant is so rare that it was plastered on DVD and VHS releases by the 10th logo. This logo was used in tandem with the next logo until its retirement.
- None; you'll just be annoyed by the lack of the characters which has graced the GoAnimate Pictures name (they are still the mascots) for over 10 years since the characters were created.
- Medium for the BA variant because of the swirly rainbow background.
- Low for The Sara Show variant.
(June 4, 2013-November 25, 2015)
By this time, GoAnimate Pictures had billions of responses to return the characters. GoAnimate Pictures and its employees did. Also, TimeWarner regained control of GoAnimate affiliates, but Tori Net still owned the original films. In which, TimeWarner decided to acquire Tori Net from News Corporation. In 2015, Comcast bought the company and made a huge profit from it. In November 2016, The company began to be owned by TimeWarner again after almost being bought out by NBCUniversal (the company that owns Comcast)

As he says that, Eric gets back up, and after the cat says "Poor Eric...", Eric runs and yells, "NO!" and crashes into the camera, smashing the screen. Then he falls off, and we see whatever logo would appear at the end.
- Starting in April 2015, "A Comcast Company, A Division of Tori Net" appears instead, due to Comcast owning GoAnimate and Tori Net reviving.
- A shorter version of the logo exists.

(November 26, 2015-December 30, 2016)
By this time, Comcast was beginning to try to protect GoAnimate from a buyout from HTML5. Comcast won, but they had to gain thousands of dollars/pounds to save it from HTML5's buyout. Comcast (which had recently bought itself from International Family Entertainment) made an agreement with TimeWarner that GoAnimate would be a joint venture between the two companies.

By April 30, 2017, this logo was gone. The company was later bought out by The SuperMarioLogan Company. All of its assets were liquidated into The SuperMarioLogan Company. At this time, fans started to miss the flag and the original characters. On December 19, 2017, The SuperMarioLogan Company announced GoAnimate Pictures would return in 2018.
