LJK193's dream logos of Smosh
Smosh Moving Pictures
Background: Smosh Moving Pictures was founded in 1896 by Smosh ancestors of Juan Hecox and Antonio Padilla. They made silent films, their most famous being the one where Juan and Antonio make lyrics and sing to the tune of the William Tell Overture, being the first sound movie. This video was a big hit until the copyright owners of that song sued Smosh Moving Pictures and destroyed all copies of that film and another sound movie wouldn't be made for another 30 years. On Jan 31, 1899, Smosh Moving Pictures made their final film: Juan and Antonio's Wild New Years Eve where the two do their usual shtick on New Year's Eve until the copyright owners shut down the company (while the camera is still rolling) and then one second right before midnight, Juan and Antonio are captured by aliens on film. It is unknown what happened to the duo but that was the last thing Smosh Moving Pictures ever made.

(1897-1899)
Logo: Just a black and white still image of Juan and Antonio in tuxedos and top hats, holding a sign that reads "A Smosh Moving Picture"
FX/SFX: None.
Music/Sounds: None.
Availabilty: Ultra rare, given the age of these films. Seen all of Smosh's old silent films which are over a century old and some of them are lost. A few of these surviving films can be found on public domain DVDs.
Scare Factor: None, unless you're creeped out by silent films.
Smosh Productions
Background: What happened in 1899 wasn't the end of Smosh. It was only the beginning....

1st logo
(1912-1921)
Logo: A still of Ian and Anthony dancing on top of a firetruck, with the text "Smosh Productions Made in Sacramento, California".
Closing Variant: The words "The End" are at the top and "Smosh Productions" is changed to "A Smosh Production"
FX/SFX: None.
Music/Sounds: None.
Availability: Seen on very early films from Smosh which are occasionally aired on TCM.
Scare Factor: None, unless you're creeped out by silent films.

2nd logo
(1915-1927)
Logo: Ian is sitting between Anthony and a firetruck. Anthony is playing a trumpet right in Ian's ear and a the firetruck is blasting a siren in Ian's ear. This is implied through the drawing of sonar.
FX/SFX: None.
Music/Sounds: None.
Availability: More common than the previous logo. Can be seen on TCM's silent nights. Was used in tandem with the previous logo.
Scare Factor: See the last logo.

3rd logo
(1927-1935)
Nickname: "The First Shut Up"
Logo: A cartoon where Anthony is holding a sign that reads "A Smosh Sound Picture Made in Sacramento, California". Anthony will say something humorous and Ian tells him to shut up.
FX/SFX: 20s animation.
Music/Sounds: Anthony saying something humorous and Ian commanding Anthony to "SHUT UP!" What Anthony says depends on the film.
Music/Sounds Variants: For the first year of this logo's use, Anthony would always say "Hey this film has sound. I can sing" and would sing to the tune of the William Tell Overture and Ian would yell "SHUT UP! That song's copyrighted!" (a reference to what happened in 1899) From 1928 onward, different jokes were used for every film.
Availabilty: Seen on Smosh's early talkies.
Scare Factor: None, it's hilarious.

4th logo
(1935-1948)
Logo: A zoom in on Smosh's current logo design; the double greater than sign with the waves in between, with the words "Smosh Productions" below in cursive font, on a background of open theater curtains.
FX/SFX: The zooming in.
Cheesy Factor: The zoom feels very rough.
Music/Sounds: Same as last logo.
Availability: Common. Generally left intact on Smosh films from the period.
Scare Factor: None.

CooleyBoy10's dream logos of Smosh
(2008-)

Logo: We see the Smosh logo on a black detailed background. The Smosh logo is a Howcast-like double arrow with something weird in the middle. Suddenly, we zoom out, revealing it's on a nuclear explosion background, with the text "SMOSH PRODUCTIONS" in a blue Hot Mustard font.

FX/SFX: The Smosh logo zooming out.

Music/Sounds: We hear a man saying "Ka-BOOOOM!!!!". When the man says "boom", a brief explosion sound can be heard.

Availability: Starting with The Search for Charlie the Drunk Guinea Pig, this appears on films directed and starring the Smosh duo.

Scare Factor: Low.
