Great Oaks Entertainment was a short-lived production company that was founded in 1995 as a merger between John Hughes's Hughes Entertainment and Ricardo Mestres Productions. It was based at Disney Studios in Los Angeles. It only produced three films, Jack (from Hollywood Pictures) and the remakes of 101 Dalmatians and Flubber, both of which belonged to the Disney library. All three of the films from the studio received mixed-to-negative reviews from critics, but were box-office successes, and it was closed down in 1997 and was folded into Walt Disney Pictures.

(November 27, 1996-November 26, 1997)

Logo: We zoom out from behind the trunk of an oak tree. An acorn falls from the top of the tree, and bumps down the branches. A leaf has also fallen, and is following the acorn. They fall onto a lake, with the acorn landing on the leaf. A script "Great Oaks" fades in below the logo, as ripples resonate from the leaf.

Technique: CGI animated by Imaginary Forces.

Music/Sounds: It is just the sound of the acorn bumping the branches and sounds coming from other sources.

Music/Sound Variant: On Flubber, the opening theme plays over the logo.

Availability: Appeared only on the remakes of 101 Dalmatians and Flubber.
