McDonald's Filipino and International Productions

Background: In accordance with the Love Ko' To Act of 2007 (signed into law by President George W. Bush on December 21, 2007), all television programs, shows, theatrical movies, TV movies, documentaries, feature films, specials and video games must go through McDonald's Filipino and International Productions. Since then, McDonald's Philippines' 2004-2009 logo has been plastered onto the opening or end credits on every show (international or local) aired throughout every network, as well as on all movies and video games.

(2008-)

Logo: We see the words "DISTRIBUTED BY" on a dark-red gradient background. Suddenly, the words zoom out and the 2004-2009 McDonald's Philippines logo does its usual sequence.

FX: Exactly like the 2004-2009 McDonald's Philippines logo.

Variants: There are many variants of this logo used throughout the years.
  • Many shows airing on all television networks, and in syndication (includes reruns of older gameshows) superimpose this logo onto the background of the ending credits.
  • On Sonic X, the "Distributed By" text is seen above the logo.
  • On TV shows that air on several children's programming blocks (saturday morning and daily), the "DISTRIBUTED BY" text reads "IN ASSOCIATION WITH".
  • There is a very rare variant only seen on imported episodes of Entertainment Tonight. The logo is set on a blue background.
  • Sometimes set on a static colored background (colors vary by show).
  • The "DISTRIBUTED BY" text can sometimes read "PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH", "PRODUCED BY (varying company name) IN ASSOCIATION WITH", or "PRODUCED IN ASSOCIATION WITH AND DISTRIBUTED BY" .
  • On reruns of The Nanny, the logo is in 3D with CGI improvements.
  • The "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text in the Comic Sans font appears instead of the usual "DISTRIBUTED BY" text and the background is dark yellow on the Phineas and Ferb episode "Does This Duckbill Make Me Look Fat?". (This version can still be seen intact on the Phineas and Ferb episode on Disney Channel, Disney Channel on Demand and Netflix.) Whether or not this is a programming error is unknown as of August 2012.
  • Very old episodes of some shows show the logo being in black and white.
  • On reruns of Dexter's Laboratory, the background is dark green.
  • On reruns of Three's Company, the logo is on a black background.
  • TV movies and theatrical movies shown on international networks sometimes add "mcdonald's philippines" above the logo.
  • Some showings of this logo include a copyright stamp.
  • A 8-bit version of this logo appears on all games on all version of the NES, Sega Master System, Game Boy, and the Game Boy Color.
  • A 16-bit version of this logo appears on all games on all versions of the SNES, Sega Mega Drive/Genesis, TurboGrafx-16, and Neo Geo.
  • Sometimes this logo is set on a wallpaper background. This was seen on Sesame Street, Noozles, What A Cartoon!, and recently on Totally Tooned In!.
  • On Even Stevens, the background is a rainbow gradient color.
  • On SpongeBob SquarePants, the background is SpongeBob's house as seen in the episode "Help Wanted".
  • On American Idol, spotlights appear throughout the logo.
Music / Sounds: Usually the 8-note McDonald's Philippines jingle taken from a 2007 McDonald's Philippines commercial entitled "Finally". However, there are a few exceptions.
  • On gameshows such as Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune, Deal or No Deal, and other current, old, and very old gameshows, the announcer's spiel is changed to accomodate the McDonald's logo.
  • One variation had a gong sound. This can be found on George Lopez, Family Matters, Full House, and Home Improvement.
  • Another variation had a synth crecendo. This is on some TV documentaries, specials, and feature films.
  • There is a variant with a synth zap that can be found on Family Ties.
  • There is a variant with a majestic fanfare that can be found on reruns of Three's Company.
Availability: Ultra common, it appears no matter which TV show, movie or documentary you watch anywhere in the world on any channel and no matter which video game you play, the logo always appears in one way or another.

Scare Factor: None.
