1st Logo (1999-2001)


Logo: On a blue fabric background, we see a blue box. The light blue letters of "Z", "O" and "O" move toward and spin while settling in the blue box. The word "PRODUCTIONS" zooms out from below the logo.

Technique: The zooming and spinning.

Music/Sounds: Three whoosh sounds, followed by a cry.

Availability: Seen on The Blame Game, Crush and Mandy Moore Show.

2nd Logo (2002-2009)

Logo: On a white background, we see moving and twisting blurred letters, that zoomed out to reveal the words "ZOO PRODUCTIONS" in a strange, weird font from the pieces, with the moving text sliding in from the cloud background, and some outlines.

Byline: Starting in 2008, a byline "an ALL3MEDIA company" appears below.

Technique: The letters zooming and twisting.

Music/Sounds: A whoosh sound, with chimes and a lion roaring. Original Fox airings of Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? used a generic theme.

Availability: Seen on Girls Behaving Badly, Speeders and Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?

3rd Logo (2009-2014)

Logo: On a white background, the black beveled letter "Z" zooms in, followed by a letter "O" zooms in, which stands next to the letter "Z", followed by another letter "O", which stands next to the other "O", all of which was surrounded by a drop shadow. The word "Productions" fades in, and the byline "an all3media company" is on the bottom right.


  • Starting in 2010, a light forms the "Productions" text and the byline from a blink effect. Also, the movements of the letters are different.
  • Starting in 2013, the All3Media America logo is shown next to the logo.
  • On Slednecks, the Parallel Entertainment Partners logo is next to the logo.

Technique: The letters zooming.


  • 2009-2010: A 4-note synth theme.
  • 2010-2014: Three thud noises, followed by a whoosh sound.
  • Sometimes, the end theme plays over the logo, or a generic theme.

Availability: Seen on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?, Family Game Night, World's Worst Tenants, Over The Limit, PrankStars, Buckwild and Slednecks.
