Little Tornado Productions, Inc. (1990-2010)

Nicknames: "The Tornado", "Tornado of Boredom"

Logo: We see a drawing of a tornado on a black background. The words "Little Tornado Productions, Inc." are below the tornado.

FX: None; it's a still logo.

Cheesy Factor: The logo is TOO plain. C'mon! Just a drawing of a tornado?

Music/Sounds: None. But on the unaired pilot episode of The Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy, we hear Bugsy Wugsy saying "Little tornado!"

Availability: Seen on tornado-related shows produced by the company from 1990-2010, such as The History of Tornadoes and Tornado Hunters. It can also be seen at the end of the unaired pilot episode of The Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy, which is included as a bonus feature on the season 1 DVD set of said show.

Scare Factor: None; it's only boring. However, the variant with the voiceover may catch you off-guard.

Logo: On a lime green background, we see a small tornado zooming in from the center of the screen, spinning. When it gets to a comfortable distance, the tornado stops spinning and fades away, revealing Bugsy Wugsy. The words "Little Tornado Productions, Inc.", in green but outlined in white, fade in below. Bugsy winks at the camera afterward.

Variants:
  • On the pilot episode of The Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy, entitled "Bugsy's First Show", the logo is on a green/white gradient background.
  • Cooking with Bugsy Wugsy! and Slice and Dice for Mice! used this logo as an opening logo, with "presents" appearing below the company name.
  • For co-productions, the words "in association with" would appear below.
  • On Halloween episodes of shows from the company, such as the Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy episode "Bugsy and the Haunted House", the background is black, the company name is orange, and Bugsy is dressed up as a sorceress. Bugsy also says "Happy Halloween!" instead of winking.
  • On Christmas episodes of shows from the company, such as the Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy episode "Bugsy's Christmas Chaos", the background is blue, the company name is red and white (think a candy cane), and Bugsy wears a Santa hat. Bugsy also says "Merry Christmas!" before she winks.
  • On Valentine's Day episodes of shows from the company, such as the Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy episode "Bugsy's Valentine's Day Party", the background is pink, the company name is red, and Bugsy wears a pink shirt with a red heart printed on it. Bugsy also says "Happy Valentine's Day!" before she winks.
  • On the Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy episode "Super Bugsy!", Bugsy is dressed in her Super Bugsy outfit.
  • On the Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy episode "Bugsy at the Beach", the background is a beach, and Bugsy wears a green swimsuit. Instead of winking, Bugsy says "Aloha!" There is no music; only the sound of crashing waves is heard.
  • On the Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy episode "Along Comes Benjamin", the standard logo plays as usual, but after Bugsy winks, Benjamin Stilton appears next to her.
  • On 2-part episodes of shows from the company, there is a still shot of the finished logo.

FX: The tornado spinning and revealing Bugsy Wugsy, the words appearing, Bugsy winking. For the still shot variant, none.

Music/Sounds: Wind blowing sounds are heard as the tornado spins. Then, when the tornado fades away and Bugsy Wugsy appears, A Faint Synth Hum was Heard, followed by a ding when Bugsy winks. On the still shot variant, it used the closing theme of the show.

Availability: Common; seen on shows produced by Little Tornado Productions, such as The Adventures of Bugsy Wugsy, The Bugsy Wugsy Diaries and Cooking with Bugsy Wugsy! Also seen on Saucy Le Paws' TV show, Slice and Dice for Mice!

Scare Factor: None; this is a cute logo.
