Logo: We see cutouts of some faint green hills on a light blue paper background, with drawings of trees, bushes, three colorful butterflies, and some flowers surrounding the landscape respectively. In the middle of the drawing, there are respective cutouts of John D. Beck and Ron Hart holding their hands in the air, with Beck on the left having yellow hair, a light blue striped shirt, grey pants and white shoes, and Hart on the right wearing glasses with brown hair, a black shirt, and light blue pants, and wearing the same shoes as Beck. Beck can be seen holding a footlong sandwich in his hand, while Hart has a pepperoni pizza in his hand. Surrounding all of this is an orange border around the drawing, accompanied with respective colorful cutouts of butterflies, cupcakes, ice cream cones and flowers. Inside the drawing, we see the white words "Beck & Hart" at the top, and "Productions" at the bottom in the Gill Sans font respectively, in a border with colors alternating between blue and orange for each letter.

Availability: Seen only on Liv and Maddie.
