Boxing Cat Films

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

Boxing Cat Films is Tim Allen's production company that was formed as early as 1990, and became fully active in 2002, only to get shut down in 2006. It re-formed in 2009 after a short hiatus.

1st Logo (1990-1991)

Logo: On a grey box, we see a cat in a boxing pose (encased in a yellow circle). The cat rapidly throws some air punches before freezing. The words "BOXING" "C A T" and "PRODUCTIONS" is beneath the logo in a Times New Roman font.

Technique: The punching animation, which, along with the overall design, look very cheap.

Music/Sounds: Punching noises, followed by the sound of a bell.

Availability: Appeared on Tim Allen: Men Are Pigs, which is available on Hulu and Tim Allen Rewires America, which can be found on Vudu.

2nd Logo (November 1, 2002-)

Logo: On a white background, we see a close-up of some arms with boxing gloves, punching a punching bag several times for a few seconds. Then it punches the screen causing us to zoom out to reveal a cat in a boxing pose wearing red shorts with a belt saying "BC" on it as its head turns down to reveal that it's standing on a white rectangular box. The words "BOXING CAT", in a black rectangular shape, and "FILMS", both in a Copperplate font, zooms out.

Variants:

  • There is a still variant of the logo that is in the white box on a black background.
  • On Crazy on the Outside, the background turns into an aging piece of paper, and the camera moves to the left as we transition into the movie.

Technique: The cat punching the bag, the zoom-out of the logo. None for the still variant.

Music/Sounds: A couple of punching sounds, followed by a loud orchestral hit. None for the still variant.

Music/Sounds Variant: There is an extremely rare variant that uses very fast punching sounds, followed by a bell ring.

Availability: Can be seen on films from the company, such as The Santa Clause 2, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, and Crazy on the Outside.
