Judgemental Films is the production company of animator/film director Mike Judge, the creator of Beavis and Butt-head and the co-creator of King of the Hill.

1st Logo (November 17, 1992)

Logo: On a blue-green-yellow gradient background, we see the words "JUDGE" and "MENTAL" stacked on each other and in a big red balloon font (there's also a dash after "JUDGE"). Below that is the word "films!" in a black cursive font, and in a much smaller face. To the right we see an animated caricature of Mike Judge himself dancing (first moving his arms, then shaking his hips, and ending with slapping his backside). When he finishes, he makes a very weird face resembling a smile, then goes back to staring blankly as the logo fades out.

Variant: There's a version of this logo that just shows the man dancing in a green oval on a blue background. This is allegedly a pencil test.

Technique: The animation, very similar to that of Beavis and Butt-head.

Music/Sounds: A luau-esque tune, which is the song "Hop, Skip and Jump" by Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant (not Speedy West’s solo version), as well as a loud "SLAP!" sound effect.

Availability: Seen on original prints of the second Beavis and Butt-head pilot, "Peace, Love and Understanding".

2nd Logo (April 6, 2014-)

Logo: On a black background, we see a multicolored square with green, white and silver lines. Next to it is the text judgemental (misspelled as "judgmental") films.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: The end theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on Silicon Valley and season 9 of Beavis and Butt-Head. Also seen at the end of Beavis and Butt-Head Do the Universe.
