Paul & Joe Productions

From Audiovisual Identity Database


This is the vanity card of Paul Germain and Joe Ansolabehere, the creators of Recess and Lloyd in Space. The former was also the co-creator of Rugrats, and the latter was a developer for Hey Arnold!.

(February 3, 2001-January 28, 2012)

Logo: In a still picture, we see a black-and-white photograph of Paul and Joe as children in a city, next to 2 more photographs. Over the photo are the words "A Paul & Joe", and below it is "Production". A spotlight shines over the picture and the logo shakes like an old film.

Variant: Starting in 2010, the logo is still and in widescreen. Also there are fully visible pictures on both sides.

Technique: The spotlight and the old film effects.

Music/Sounds: Depends on the show.

  • Lloyd in Space and Recess: The closing theme of the show.
  • Recess direct-to-video movies: A short piano ditty.
  • Pound Puppies: A group of puppies barking that continues into the 9 Story Entertainment and later the DHX Media logos.
  • On the pilot episode of Pound Puppies, it's silent.

Availability: Seen on Lloyd in Space, two Recess DTV movies (Taking the Fifth Grade and All Growed Down), and the first season of Pound Puppies. It was surprisingly seen on the 2002 ABC airings of Recess.
