1st Logo (1972-1984)

Visuals: The screen fades to a shot of a golden eagle in mid-flight over a clear blue sky, with a mountainous terrain below and a dead tree in the corner. The camera pans as the eagle continues its flight, with visible sunbeams present. After the camera zooms into the eagle. The camera then cuts away to the eagle diving down in some trees, with the text "AMERICAN NATIONAL ENTERPRISES Presents" appearing over the scene for a few seconds in yellow. After a few seconds, the eagle clears the trees and the text fades out, showing the eagle landing on a tree branch. It then cuts to a close-up of the eagle roosting while looking around a bit, and then the screen fades out.


  • On the Rainbow Adventure series of films, the logo is extended. The camera cuts to a close up of the eagle's head looking around for a second before an iris in effect occurs around the eagle's eye, showing a far shot of the scene and revealing a rainbow above the logo. The text "A RAINBOW ADVENTURE Film" then zooms out beneath the eagle.
  • An still variant exist that has a different logo on a sky blue background. The yellow text "AN AMERICAN NATIONAL ENTERPRISES, LTD. PRODUCTION" is seen in a serif font, while a painted depiction of a golden eagle diving is seen to the left.

Technique: Live-action with some camera-controlled animation. The still variant is a painting.

Audio: A majestic fanfare with a few eagle screeches near the beginning. Later years the logo was used, it had the sound of an eagle, followed by a relaxing orchestral jingle.

Availability: It can be seen on 1970s prints of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, as well as several Toei and Toho films. The still variant appears on The Brothers O' Toole.

2nd Logo (1984-1986)

Visuals: On a black background, a 4-pointed star glows brightly with a blue haze, leaving faint light rays as it dims to reveal an neon blue outline of an eagle flying across the screen. As it flaps its wings, it veers off-screen to the right for a second, before it comes back on-screen with talons out. The outline then morphs into a more stylized depiction of a eagle diving down with its talons before the outline flashes, turning it shiny white outline of an eagle drawing before it quickly fills with a metallic gold. A red trail then zooms out and flashes brightly to reveal the following text:

American National
Enterprises, Inc.

The text is also a metallic gold. The entire logo shines brightly twice.

Technique: Motion-captured graphics.

Audio: A very majestic horn fanfare with a synth note at the end.

Availability: Seen on Locke The Superpower and several other anime features after the Celebrity's Just For Kids logo and on ANE's last films until the company was sold to Peregrine Entertainment in 1986.
