Bob Bain Productions
This is Bob Bain's production company.
1st Logo (late 1990s?-April 21, 2001)
Logo: On a black background we see the words "bobbain" with a dark blue down arrow with the stem being squiggly. Behind the words, there's a yellow bar on the left side of the screen. All of this is in a extreme close up. It then quickly zooms out with a yellow bar going to the left of the screen and it causes the word "bob" to turn yellow. The word "PRODUCTIONS" appears below in a small uppercase font.
Technique: The text and bars zooming out and moving at a rapid pace.
Music/Sounds: A male voice saying "Space station slime, we have a problem". In the middle of the dialogue, a burp is heard.
Music/Sounds Variant: On N*Sync: 'Ntimate Holiday Special, the end theme of the special (or a generic theme on Fox airings) plays.
Availability: Extinct. It was seen on the 2001 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards and N*Sync: 'Ntimate Holiday Special, which was last seen in 2005. None of these specials have received home media releases, nor are they currently reran, so it's gone for good. It may have been seen on the company's previous specials in the 1990s.
2nd Logo (early 2000s-March 31, 2012, August 11, 2019-)
Nickname: "The Stack"
Logo: On a black background, we see the stacked silverish-blue text "BOB BAIN PRODUCTIONS", all with lines underneath, turning with a shining light effect.
Variant: On Nick Jr.'s Mega Music Fest, we see a shot of some burnt-out shoes. Then, the company name zooms in, in a different font than before.
Technique: The light shining.
Music/Sounds: A synthesized sweeping sound with an announcer saying "This has been a Bob Bain production".
- Sometimes, it doesn't feature the voiceover.
- On 2005-2012 Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards and the shoes variant, Tom Kenny (in his SpongeBob SquarePants voice) does the VO.
- On the 2003 Kids' Choice Awards, Daran Norris (in his Cosmo voice from The Fairly OddParents) says "Bob Bain Productions! I love it! Woo-hoo!".
Availability: Was extinct in the past, given that this was only seen on special events like the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards (starting in 2002), the Miss America pageants, Teen Choice Awards, Your Mama Don't Dance, and Dance Fever (2003), among others. Originally retired in 2012, it returned in 2019 with the 2019 Teen Choice Awards.
3rd Logo (March 23, 2013-)
Logo: On a black background with several blue sparks, we see "BOB BAIN PRODUCTIONS", stacked like before, only it's now in blue and in CGI. As the logo slowly flies up to the center of the screen, a large blue circle pulses around the stack.
Technique: Very nice CGI animation.
Music/Sounds: Tom Kenny (again, in his SpongeBob SquarePants voice) says "This has been a Bob Bain production," and then does SpongeBob's signature laugh. On the Teen Choice Awards, it's either the end theme of the special or a female announcer saying the mentioned line above.
Availability: Used in tandem with the second logo. Seen on the Kids' Choice Awards and the Teen Choice Awards from 2013 to 2015.
4th Logo (July 31, 2016-August 12, 2018)
Logo: On a black background, "bobbainproductions" types in. A hashtag zooms from the top right corner to the first "b".
Technique: The name typing, the hashtag zooming.
Music/Sounds: The end theme with a typing sound and a ding when the hashtag zooms down.
Availability: This logo is strangely absent from newer Kids' Choice Awards since 2015 (but it was replaced by the logos of Michael Dempsey's Dempsey Productions and Greg Sills' GHS Productions, while the logo of Elizabeth Kelly's ROK Productions used in the earlier years), but it still serves on the Teen Choice Awards.
Legacy: Compared to previous logos, this looks rather bland.
