PFFR (pronounced P-F-R) is an experimental indietronica band and art collective formed in 2001 based in Brooklyn, New York, whose members are composed of Vernon Chatman, Alyson Levy, Jim Tozzi, and John Lee. As of 2019, they have produced 4 albums and one EP that is only available through download. As a TV "production company", they have produced Doggie Fizzle Televizzle, Xavier: Renegade Angel, Neon Joe: Werewolf Hunter, The Shivering Truth, The Heart, She Holler and Wonder Showzen, along with several others for the cable network Adult Swim.

1st Logo (March 11, 2005- )

Logo: Against a white background, we see a very crude drawing of an apple-headed creature with a toothy red smile and a big nose, which is wearing a top hat and a collar and also has a large, blue defecating worm with glasses, a hat and a single tooth coming out the left side of his head. The lower half of this creature has his skinny little legs in a squatting position and a face on his buttocks that appears to be spitting blood. Gray bars are shown on both sides of the screen, with "PFFFR", in red, written on them. The logo rapidly flashes in and out of view.

Trivia: This creature is the "mascot" for PFFR's 2005 EP Chrome Ghost. This logo is still used on PFFR's website (everywhere).


  • On Season 1 episodes of Xavier: Renegade Angel, the flashing becomes more intense at the end.
  • On the Xavier: Renegade Angel episode "Pet Siouxicide", Xavier is running against the logo.
  • On the Xavier: Renegade Angel episode "Bloodcorn", the logo is tinted red.
  • On the Xavier: Renegade Angel episode "Haunted Tonk", the creature's mouth is changing colors rapidly.
  • On the Xavier: Renegade Angel episode "Going Normal", the logo has a shatter effect to it.

Technique: The flashing.

Music/Sounds: A voice saying "PFR" (it says it in an extended tone, resulting in the voice saying "Peeeeee Efff Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr", although it kind of sounds like "Miii amoooor", Spanish for "My love".) in a weird "burpy" voice. A disoriented bubbling noise is also heard.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On most episodes of Xavier: Renegade Angel, the closing bits of the episodes play throughout this logo. The last bit of the voice also rapidly stutters at the end. If an episode has guest actors, an even shorter stutter fades out as the "With Special Guests" screen is shown.
    • The episodes "Chief Beef Loco" and "Signs from Godrilla" replace the stutter with a different voice which sounds like a choir singer. The special guest screen plays the voice at a higher pitch.
    • The episode "Bloodcorn" not only has the audio muffled, but also has clicking sounds in place of the voice stuttering.
  • On the Xavier: Renegade Angel episode "Going Normal", shattering sounds accompany the voice.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be found on several of their shows like Wonder Showzen, Xavier: Renegade Angel and Delocated. It was also seen on the pilot of The Problem Solverz called "Neon Knome", which was going to be an Adult Swim show before Cartoon Network picked it up as a children's series.

Legacy: The shocking design of the creature, as well as the flashing and strange voice, can be seen as scary to those who never seen it before, along with the 4 Xavier variants, but it's not as bad to those used to it or are fans of their shows and songs (especially since this logo does appear on the EP mentioned above).

2nd Logo (April 4, 2016)

Availability: Appears on the start of M.O.P.Z..
