Background

Spark Plug Entertainment was founded by Michael Schelp in 2006. They are known for making direct-to-video "mockbusters" (films produced to exploit the popularity of major blockbusters that have similar subjects or titles) of films by Pixar, DreamWorks, etc. The company has seemingly gone dormant since the mid/late 2010s, having not released any new movies since 2015.

Logo: On a black or white screen, a flash occurs. Then the flash dies away to reveal the Spark Plug Entertainment logo, which is "Spark Plug" in a scarlet cursive font and a 12-pointed shape with a drawing of a spark plug (hence the name) and "ENTERTAINMENT" in black lettering under it. The finished logo zooms out a bit, and takes place on a sky background.

Trivia: The logo was designed by Derek Yesman.

Variant: At the end of Piper Penguin and his Fantastic Flying Machines, a copyright notice is below.

Technique: The flash and zooming out.

Music/Sounds: A drum roll at the start, then a whoosh, and a happy flute tune with a few xylophone notes at the end. At the end of Piper Penguin and his Fantastic Flying Machines, an abridged version was used. At the end of Car's Life 2, an extended version was used.

Availability: Not many Spark Plug films were produced, but this isn't too rare. First seen on Spider's Web: A Pig's Tale, and later appeared on Plan Bee and Piper Penguin and his Fantastic Flying Machines. This did not appear on Bug Bites: An Ant's Life (which was produced in 1998) and A Car's Life: Sparky's Big Adventure.

Editor’s Note: This logo is representative of Spark Plug’s work; quickly done to make a quick buck.
