1st Logo (October 20, 2008-April 23, 2017)

Visuals: There is a black and white photo of a baby with a funny expression holding a piece of bread on a stool inside a kitchen. The image rapidly zooms out in which a tube mask forms and shrinks. While this is happening, the words "JOKE" (excluding the "O", which fades in as the photo zooms out) are seen on the bottom right of a stone tube with a copy of each letter enlarged. After that, "productions" fades in on the bottom right of the logo.

Technique: Computer animation.

Audio: A click and then a whoosh.

Availability: Seen on Scream Queens (the 2008 MTV series), Snapped: She Made Me Do It on Oxygen, Three Days to Live on Oxygen and True Life on MTV.

2nd Logo (March 18, 2018-)

Visuals: There is the same logo from before, but with different colors and initially blurry. The image deblurs and then slightly blurs a little bit.

Technique: Simple blurring effects.

Audio: A burst and then a creaking sound.

Availability: So far, seen on Unmasking a Killer on HLN and Unraveled on ID.
