Star Shower Films

Background: From 1998 until 2002, The Powerpuff Girls used the Star Shower Films trademark "raining stars" logo (includes the variants of the logo made specifically and exclusively for the show) on its episode-ending shots. Apparently, Star Shower Films approved use of their own logo. It was acquired by MCA in 1985, The E. W. Scripps Company in 1997, and became a low-budget film division owned by 50% of the E.W. Scripps Company and 50% of NBCUniversal in the year 2011.

Logo: Bascially an animated version of the previous logo. It starts with a couple-dozen yellow stars showering over. The backdrop is a red-light blue gradient background which appears a few seconds later. The glittering stars glide over the screen causing the thirty stars from the last nine logos flying to the left and the company's namewiping in from the left. After this progression, two stars criss-cross each other's paths and fade away left and right underneath to reveal, in smaller text, the words, "films". As the logo completes, one big star goes against the top of the thirty stars and flashes. Then it shines, a la the Torch Lady's torch shining. A byline then fades in below.

Bylines:
  • "AN E.W. SCRIPPS COMPANY" (with the Scripps "Lighthouse" logo on the right of "COMPANY") (2004-2011)
  • "A DIVISION OF (Scripps "Lighthouse" logo) and NBCUniversal" ("NBCUniversal" is in its respective logotype) (2011-present)

FX/SFX: The glittering stars and the bright shining star.

Music/Sounds: Exactly like the 1994 United Artists logo.

Availability: Current.

Scare Factor: None.
