Logo: We see a windmill tower embossed on a faded light gray background, and it has a windmill blade rotating on it. These words are seen below, sandwiched between two lines:

R i c k M i l l
P R O D U C T I O N S

The logo has a slightly old-timey feel to it.

Technique: Just the animation of the sails.

Music/Sounds: Just the whirring and creaking of the windmill, which carries on into the following Comedy Central logo of the era (ironically, on one episode, the applause from the end of the show almost completely drowns out the sound effects over the logo, and are only heard on the CC logo which appears after the applause has died down).

Availability: Seen on the first 4 seasons of Comedy Central Presents and the special Dave Chappelle: Killing Them Softly.


2nd Logo (June 25, 2001-2011?)

Logo: We see a yellow windmill blade spinning very fast as it zooms out. As it does, a more modern windmill tower design wipes in with the company name:

R i c k M i l l
P R O D U C T I O N S

with "Productions" in white. The blade slows down by the end of the logo.

Technique: The zooming out, and the spinning of the blades.

Music/Sounds: A loud whoosh noise as the logo starts, then a sound that resembles sprinkling fairy dust.

Availability: Seen on Comedy Central Presents starting with season 5 and the HBO TV special Dennis Miller: All In.
