6 Point Harness

1st Logo (June 10-July 29, 2006)

Six Point Harness (2006).png


Logo: On a red background with fire, a large bug-like creature (presumably a cockroach) comes up from the bottom of the screen. A black transparent bar is seen with "SIX POINT HARNESS" on it, stacked with the text moving to their positions. Suddenly, the creature takes over the camera, shaking the scene. The whole scene then turns blue then zooms out and returns to normal color.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The first two seconds of the 2nd logo for Imperial Entertainment Group. It was likely that Six Point Harness used Imperial's logo theme without the company's consent.

Availability: Only seen on early episodes of the short-lived MTV2 show Where My Dogs At?.

2nd Logo (October 27-December 29, 2011)

6PH-2011-Show-Reel-0-00-03-03-e1553038153118.jpg

Logo: On a red fuzzy background, we see the text "6 point harness" in an 1980s font. Inside the circle of the number 6 is the seatbelt of a car. The word "STUDIOS" appears itself.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: Just the sound of the film projector.

Availability: Seen on MTV series, Good Vibes and their 2011 reel.

3rd Logo (September 17, 2013-2015)

Screenshot 2022-05-21-10-48-12.png

Logo: On a gray background, a red belt streaks. We zoom in and more red belts streak, eventually filling the screen red when the screen zooms to one of the belts. The company logo from the previous logo forms on the red background before zooming in slightly.

Variant: There exists a short version starting with the text forming.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The opening/closing theme of the film/TV show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Dick Figures: The Movie and the failed pilot Everstar.

4th Logo (December 4, 2016-August 13, 2017)

Screenshot 2022-05-21-10-59-30.png

Logo: On a black background with blue smoke, a bright flash emits from inside the "6" of the company logo that was used from the previous two logos (along with a stylized "PH", but "OINT" and "ARNESS" are removed), which looks retro and is orange. The flash dies down which reveals that the flash came from the belt inside the "6". Underneath the logo has the text "SIX POINT HARNESS" in a different font and in the same color as the logo.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on Apollo Gauntlet.

5th Logo (June 9, 2018)

Disney Digital Network, 6 Point Harness, Mercury Filmworks, Atomic Cartoons (2018).png

Logo: Just the 6 Point Harness logo, sharing the screen with Disney Digital Network, Mercury Filmworks and Atomic Cartoons logos.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme.

Availability: Seen on Legend of The Three Caballeros.

6th Logo (April 1, 2020- )

Screenshot 2022-05-21-10-40-40.png

Logo: On a black background, we see the drawn lines in a flashing effect and it zooms in to reveal the same company logo from the 4th logo. Then the word "SIX POINT HARNESS" in the same text from the 4th logo appears underneath.

Variant: On Tig Notaro: Drawn, the logo is still.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: None or the closing theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on season 2 of Lazor Wulf, the pilot episode of Smiling Friends ("Desmond's Big Day Out"), and the HBO special Tig Notaro: Drawn.
