Warner Bros. Entertainment Inc. (commonly known as Warner Bros. and abbreviated as WB) is an American diversified multinational mass media and entertainment conglomerate headquartered at the Warner Bros. Studios complex in Burbank, California, and a subsidiary of Warner Bros. Discovery. Founded in 1923 by four brothers Harry, Albert (Abe), Sam, and Jack Warner, the company established itself as a leader in the American film industry before diversifying into animation, television, and video games, and is one of the "Big Five" major American film studios, as well as a member of the Motion Picture Association (MPA). The company is known for its film studio division, the Warner Bros. Pictures Group, which includes Warner Bros. Pictures, New Line Cinema, the Warner Animation Group, Castle Rock Entertainment and DC Studios. Among its other assets include the television production company Warner Bros. Television Studios; animation studios Warner Bros. Animation and Cartoon Network Studios; comic book publisher DC Comics; video game development and publishing arm Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment; and a 12.5% interest in broadcast television network The CW, which is co-owned with Nexstar Media Group and Paramount Global. Warner Bros. also operates various divisions specializing in publishing, merchandising, music, theater, and theme parks. Bugs Bunny, a cartoon character created as part of the Looney Tunes series, is the company's official mascot.
1st Logo (1996)
Logo: We see the iconic Looney Tunes red/black concentric circles, with "WARNER BROS." on the top and "Presents" on the bottom. The WB shield extremely zooms in to the point that it fills the screen, making the words explode out of the screen. Then we fade out to a 3D head, that being Marvin the Martian along side the Looney Tunes logo. At the end, Marvin's eyes glow, seguing into the short.
Technique: CGI animation.
Music/Sounds: A re-orchestrated version of the ending section of "Merrily We Roll Along", with the steel guitar slide lick extended by 4 seconds, and crumbling sounds when the text explode.
Availability: Only seen on the 1996 theme park short, Marvin the Martian in the 3rd Dimension.
2nd Logo (early 2000s)
Logo: Same as before, but the shield is smaller, the concentric circles are more detailed, and everything is in a box on a cyan background. No animation is present except for the camera zooming in to the shield.
Technique: A zooming effect.
Music/Sounds: A distorted version of the starting section of "The Merry-Go-Round Broke Down".
Availability: Ultra rare.
3rd Logo (2010)
4th Logo (November 2019)
5th Logo (August 16, 2020-)
Logo: On a black background, we see the 2019 WB shield in yellow. It fades in and out.
Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the show.
Availability: Seen on Partisan; the Warner Bros. International Television Production logo appears at the end of each episode.
6th Logo (December 15, 2022-)
Logo: We start with the water tower of the Warner Bros. studio lot, similar to the 2021 Warner Bros. Pictures logo, but it pans from it instead of passing through. It then fades to the golden edge of the WBD shield, as it cuts through another view of it and finally through a stylized gold "100", with the WBD shield beside the "1". The text "CELEBRATING EVERY STORY" fades on the "00".
- A short version exists where the logo animates faster than usual.
- On another video, the animation of the shield revealing isn't cut.
- French and Portuguese versions exist on the company's respective YouTube channels.
- On a promo video released during the 95th Academy Awards, only the shield is seen, which zooms out very quickly, with the URL "WB100.COM" below, which shines.
Technique: Live-action and CGI.
Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the video. On WB100: Share Every Story, Morgan Freeman's voiceover is heard.
Availability: Brand new. First seen on a video from the company called WB100: Share Every Story.
