1st logo (2008-2015)
Logo:We start at a black background, then an explosion occurs, revealing a blue MM-like Bullseye (but animated) with the text SAMINATION in the 'Taco-Man' font. Then the logo ends with the text zooming in, fasterly.
SFX/FX:The explosion and the text zooming in. Nice Samination animation for an animation YouTube logo in 2008.
Music/Sounds:An explosion sound and a dramatic 7-note fanfre.
Scare Factor:None to low due to the explosion exploding out of no-where.
