1st Logo (January 8, 1999-December 20, 2002)

Logo: We see John Masius in the living room, reading a newspaper while his big dog looks at him as it barks, causing Masius to look at him and sigh. The company name fades in underneath, followed by "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" in smaller text and in the same font.

Variant: On the first season, we see Masius sleeping on a couch. He rolls back, with the company name's on top. The "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text fades in on the bottom.

Technique: Live-action.

Music/Sounds: The sound of the dog barking, the newspaper rustling as Masius puts it down, and he sighs.

Music/Sounds Variant: The variant has a woman saying "He's, uh, in the meeting.". Original NBC airings used a generic theme and a voiceover.

Availability: Seen on Providence.

2nd Logo (July 4, 2003-August 24, 2010)

Logo: On a black background, we see a box of a cat named Murray, walking towards to the camera while meowing. The name is shown below in the Tempus Sans font.

Variant: There is a variant used on season 1 of Dead Like Me where we see a box of a photo of the big dog and John Masius from the previous logo as he looks at the dog. The name is shown below in caps lock. It is also still.

Technique: The live-action clip.

Music/Sounds: Murray meowing and purring, then John Masius calls his name. Otherwise, it's the closing theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on Dead Like Me (with the exception of the pilot) and the first two seasons of HawthoRNe.
