Glitch Productions is an Australian animation studio founded by Kevin and Luke Lerdwichagul, known for their YouTube channel SMG4 (SuperMarioGlitchy4). The company was founded in 2017 as Glitchy Boy, but was renamed due to the old name being too vague.

Glitchy Boy

1st Logo (May 25-September 30, 2017)

Logo: On a black background, a light flashes and a Game Boy-like console zooms in. Akin to a Gameboy Advance SP or Nintendo DS, the top screen opens up to reveal a blue background. Then, the word "GLITCHY" in a blocky font slides in from the left, and "BOY" in white with a blue outline slides in from the right. The screen shines and we zoom into it as the logo fades to black.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: A chiptune melody, along with whooshing sound effects and a ping.

Availability: No longer current. It was seen on Hobo Bros, TheAwesomeMario and SMG4 content until late 2017, when it was replaced with the logo below.

2nd Logo (October 8, 2017-September 6, 2018)

Logo: We zoom out from a cartridge with the icon of its respective channel (red for TheAwesomeMario, blue for SMG4 and light blue for Hobo Bros). A Game Boy device, similar to the one in the previous logo but more grey than blue, slides up and the cartridge is inserted. The device flips over and the letters from "GLITCHY BOY" fly in, changing colours and glitching (fittingly) while doing so and shining afterwards, settling on blue. We zoom in on the screen, but much faster than last time.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: The "Splatfest Intro" song from Splatoon, accompanied by whooshes and glitching sounds. A glitched version of the Game Boy Advance start up is heard as the letters fly in.

Availability: Was common in its time. Seen on SMG4 and TheAwesomeMario content regularly starting with War of the Fat Italians 2017. Select Hobo Bros videos used this, but those videos are few and far between. This logo was officially retired in the SMG4 Direct of September 6, 2018, which came with an announcement of the rebrand.

Glitch Productions

1st Logo (September 6, 2018-December 28, 2019)

Logo: On a white background, the Glitch Productions logo zooms out (appearing to show a glitchy triangle with the word "GLITCH" in the middle, housing teal and pink 3D effects on it). The logo completely glitches 3 times before settling back down.

Variant: On SMG4 episodes, the logo glitches into the SMG4 logo of the time. Other videos on the SMG4 channel simply have the logo glitch away.

Technique: 2D animation

Music/Sounds: A brief jingle accompanied by glitching sounds.

Availability: No longer current. Debuted on the SMG4 Direct and last seen on The Grand Festival.

2nd Logo (SMG4 variant) (January 18, 2020-July 31, 2021)

Logo: We see fragments from the previous logo on a black background, before the logo in full appears, sometimes glitching and having the text disappear.

Technique: 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The same jingle from last logo combined with different glitching sounds.

Availability: Exclusively used on SMG4 episodes. Debuted on Mario Gets His P***** Stuck In The Door and last used on She's Back!

3rd Logo (August 29, 2020-)

Logo: On a white background with faint Xes, a blue and black rectangle, with some squares stretched out, slides in with Tari from Meta Runner, with a pink and blue "3D effect" doing a peace sign nervously. We zoom into one of the squares as another white background slides up from below, this time featuring Theo from the same series (and it's spin-off Ultra Jump Mania) jumping, also with the same effect as Tari. After a second, Theo falls down and we pan up to a white and pink banner under a black background, where Whisk from Sunset Paradise, maskless, is frightened and looks down. The banner, and Whisk, then zoom up, as the GLITCH Productions logo from the previous 2 logos zooms in slowly, the shapes in the background rotating.

Variant: The character's outfits, animations, and even the characters themselves, can vary depending on what time the video was released. For example, starting with Sunset Paradise, Whisk is replaced with Meggy.

Technique: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: An upbeat EDM tune.

Availability: Used on content on the GLITCH channel, including Meta Runner Season 2, Sunset Paradise and Murder Drones.
