Background: This is the vanity card for Hey Arnold! creator Craig Bartlett.

1st Logo (October 7, 1996-November 2004)

Nickname: "The Totem Pole"

Logo: On a brown background, we see a tall, stylized totem pole bird with "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" (in the Hey Arnold! title font) above it. Under it are the words "SNEE-OOSH INC.", made out of brown sticks.

Variant: On later seasons, the "IAW" text is absent.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: None for the early version, but the split-screen variant is a COMPLETELY different story.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme.

Music/Sounds: On Nickelodeon's split-screen credits from September 2000, it has its own music (done by the series' head composer, Jim Lang) consisting of a creepy chorus singing "Snee-OOOOOOOSH", followed by a two-note weird flute/gong tune (similar to a Native American tribe woodwind music or a television test pattern tone) which played over the following Nickelodeon or Nickelodeon Animation Studios logo.

Availability: Rare. The split-screen variant is long extinct, but the standard version appears on prints of Hey Arnold! episodes with the original closing credits.

Scare Factor:

  • Original Version: None to minimal. The totem pole of the bird can creep a few first-time viewers out.
  • Split-Screen Variant: Medium to high. The chorus and the flute/gong tune are very creepy, and can catch you off-guard (especially for those who are not used to this), but this is a favorite of many.

2nd Logo (2000's; February 15th, 2016-)

Logo: Same as before, but it looks more realistic, sepia toned, zoomed in a bit and has a film effect.

Later Variant: On Ready, Jet, Go!, the logo is now in color and lacked out a film effect. The camera slightly zooms foward and flashes to the Wind Dancer Films logo.

FX/SFX: None for the normal version. The zooming and a flash in the variation.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme.

Availability: Current. Seen on the Cartoon Network pilot Party Wagon and Ready, Jet, Go!. Surprisingly, it doesn't appear on Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie.

Scare Factor: None.
