Background: Williams Street Productions, LLC is a production sub-arm of Cartoon Network established in 1994 first under the name of Ghost Planet Industries to produce animated shows for the young-adult audience, also opening a small subsidiary as Williams Street West that Matt Harrigan used to work for Viacom International and Williams Street without having to return to Atlanta constantly, closing its doors after he stopped working for Viacom. All its shows are currently aired on Adult Swim.

(February 20, 1995- )


Nicknames: "The Space Ghost Logo", "The CN Building", "The CN Factory", "The Adult Swim Logo", "That Blatant Logo at the End of SGC2C"

Logo: On a very pale gray background, we see a corner shot of a dark gray building. (This building is not the Williams Street office, but the Ghost Planet building where Space Ghost does his interviews; it later appeared in CGI in the intros to SGC2C and Toonami). Under it, it would say one of these texts:

  • February 20, 1995-December 25,1998: "GHOST PLANET INDUSTRIES" , in a "ghost" font is below the building.
  • October 22,1999-: "WILLIAMS STREET". Also, in this version, it cuts to a skull with the 1992-2004 Cartoon Network logo on it
  • November 23, 2003-April 12, 2004: "WILLIAMS STREET WEST" is under the building. The wavering filter and building are in reverse.

Variants:

  • There is also an inverted version of the GPI logo with the gray BG and the building in white on Season 7 of SGC2C.
  • On the last season of Space Ghost: Coast to Coast the logo says "WILLIAMS STREET WEST" also the building is reversed and a slightly different font is used.
  • An alternate verson of the logo that has the letters are farther apart and the waving is bigger and at a smoother and faster rate.
  • On the Sealab 2021 episode, "Murphy Murph and the Feng Shui Bunch," Master Shake from Aqua Teen Hunger Force breaks the alternate version of the Williams Street logo, along with the 7030 Productions and the Cartoon Network Productions logos.
  • On Stroker and Hoop, it has a copyright stamp below the alternate version of the logo.
  • On recent Adult Swim shows from 2012 and onward the logo has (barely readable) Cartoon Network copyright information, and it does not cut to the Cartoon Network Skull. Also, the logo has been converted to letterbox.
  • On the first episode of Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law( the only episode of the show to have this logo), the logo is tinted blue.
  • Supposedly, on the Eric Andre Show episode "James Van Der Beek; Steve-O", the logo cuts to black after the first hammer strike.

FX/SFX: Very little. A subtle waving of the logo.

Cheesy Factor:

  • Regular Version: Sound and drawing quality are bad, though this is deliberate.
  • Alternate Version: The waving makes the logo look like it's bulging out repeatedly. However, the image quality is more clearer than the regular verson.

Music/Sounds: The ever popular Mark VII Limited "Hammer" sound from 1967-1971, containing two strikes of the hammer (three for the Ghost Planet Industries version), being shortened on some shows.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • In other cases, it used the closing theme of the show (If you listen closely, certain shows (such as early seasons of Robot Chicken) still have a bit of Master Shake from ATHF yelling "dance!" really quickly).
  • Some episodes of Sealab 2021 has a voice bit.
  • Sometimes, it's silent. One example is the SGC2C S3 episode "Sharrock" to observe the memory of Sonny Sharrock, the show's musician.

Availability: Common. The "Ghost Planet Industries" variant can be found on 1995-2001 episodes of Space Ghost Coast to Coast (as well as its finale "Live At The Fillmore", aired in 2004), as well as the rather obscure Cartoon Planet. The "Williams Street" one can be seen on most everything Adult Swim produced recently, as well as IGPX: Immortal Grand Prix (although the 2005-2006 episodes use the 2005 Toonami Original Productions logo instead), andSGC2C episodes from Season 6. The "Williams Street West" one can be seen on the 2003-2004 season of SGC2C (the last one). The alternate version was first seen on the SGC2C episode "Chambraigne", and is regularly seen on Sealab 2021Squidbillies, Frisky Dingo, Lucy: The Daughter of the Devil', Season 2 of 'Delocated, and the first episode of Stroker and Hoop.

Scare Factor: Depending on the logo variant:

  • Low to medium. It's a very jarring logo, cutting in DIRECTLY after whatever comes before it (SGC2C is the sole exception to this; the GPI logo always fades in there, though in its later years with the WS logo it cuts in). The blatant Mark VII "Hammer" sound combined with the odd image may make some uneasy too, but this logo is a favorite of nearly everyone who see it.
  • Low with the closing theme of the show.
  • Alternate Version: Low, for the same reasons as before, but the image quality is clearer.
