Bill Oakley/Josh Weinstein Productions

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


This is the vanity card of Bill Oakley & Josh Weinstein, who previously worked together as showrunners for the seventh and eighth seasons of The Simpsons before creating this company.

1st Logo (September 21, 1999-August 11, 2002)

Visuals: Characters from Mission Hill are shown animated on the screen, depending on each variant shown. "A BILL OAKLEY/JOSH WEINSTEIN PRODUCTION" appears on top or the bottom right hand corner of the screen.

Trivia: According to an extra on the Mission Hill DVD, unique variants for every episode were planned throughout the series' run, but the idea was scrapped for budgetary reasons, and only four were produced.

Variants: There were four variants of this logo:

  • Variant 1: Ron (voiced by Nick Jameson), yelling the company name at Andy and Gwen.
  • Variant 2: Stogie is up close at the screen with a sign of the company name around his neck. Andy whispers the company name in a dramatic fashion.
  • Variant 3: Andy (voiced by Wallace Langham), turns to the viewer and says the company name. Jim chugs Andy's drink while the latter's back is turned, leaving Andy surprised as he turns his back around.
  • Variant 4: Kevin (voiced by Scott Menville), is on his computer downloading a picture of a scantily clad woman while he turns to the viewer to say the company name. Once he realizes what he is doing, he gets startled and covers the computer screen, leaving him embarrassed. Sometimes, the URL for the show is seen below.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: Just the characters saying the company name, in addition to Kevin saying "GAH!" after saying the company name in his variant.

Availability: Seen on Mission Hill.
