Joop Van Den Ende TV-Producties

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

This is Joop van den Ende's production company.



1st Logo (1989?-1991)

Logo: On a black background, we see 2 bars colliding with one another, then there is what appears to be shininess. Then, "JOOP VAN DEN ENDE" rises from the bottom bars, with them shining. "JOOP" and "ENDE" are separate words, but "VAN DEN" is sandwiched between "JOOP" and "ENDE".

Variant: On Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden, it paired with the Reg Grundy logo.

Technique: The bars and text moving, the shininess.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the logo.

Availability: Rare.

2nd Logo (1991-1993)

Logo: On a black background, we zoom through some lettering, in shiny silver. We then see the word "ENDE" in all caps. Then we zoom out to reveal the whole thing, which says "JOOP VAN DEN ENDE TV PRODUKTIES", with 4 blocks surrounding the part between "ENDE" and "TV PRODUKTIES", all layered top to bottom, apart from "VAN DEN". All of it is enclosed with 4 tall blocks, but only within the text areas.

Variants: On an episode of Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden, the text is golden along with the Reg Grundy logo, spins towards the right side of the screen, and "TV" is omitted, instead saying "PRODUCTIONS".

Technique: The shiny text and the movement.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the program.

Availability: Uncommon and/or extremely rare.

3rd Logo (1993-1998)

Logo: On a black background, we see "geproduccerd door" for a few moments, then we see blocks in the colors magenta, gray, green, and blue. They slide into the formation described in the 2nd logo, then we see "JOOP VAN DEN ENDE TV PRODUKTIES" in a grey-ish color rotate in until it faces us. Then, after a few moments, the entire thing rotates.

Technique: The colored boxes moving and text spinning.

Variants:

  • On some logos, there is an Endemol company notice at the bottom, and there would normally be a copyright year at the bottom spinning along with the rest of the text, but seems to be omitted.
  • On some shows, the blocks moving is not shown, and the entire logo spins.
  • On game shows co-produced by John De Mol Produkties, the logo is upward.
  • On GTST, it paired with the Reg Grundy Productions logo.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the logo.

Availability: Uncommon, but on YouTube can be found on Kees and Co.. It was also appeared on Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden, Up the Stage, and game shows (which were co-produced by John De Mol Produkties); however, the early version doesn't have the John De Mol Produkties logo.

4th Logo (1998-2003?)

Logo: With the remainder of the episode as the backdrop, we see "JOOP" and "ENDE" moving in from left and right at the same time (framed with blue with a bright shiny backdrop), then bouncing (we think) with one another while "VAN DEN" and "TV-PRODUCTIES" come in and bump in with both "JOOP" and "ENDE", both landing at specific places...

  • VAN DEN above "ENDE" and next to "JOOP"
  • "TV-PRODUCTIES" below "JOOP"

...and after all that, an eye with a blue background comes in from the left and bumps into all of it, while the background gets zoomed out with a blue frame around it into a black background. The eye blinks, then it all flips to black.

Variants:

  • On some productions, there is "An Endemol Entertainment Company" slogan that comes from the bottom, then slides back up before it all flips back.
  • On game shows, it paired with the John De Mol Produkties logo.
  • On GTST, it paired with the Grundy Productions logo.

Technique: The text in frames moving, and it all bumping with one another.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the logo, mixed in with metal sheets bumping into one another, then after that, there is a clicky-ish sound, then some noise, then something that sounds shiny fade in/out.

Availability: Uncommon.
