"REPUBLIC PICTURES", in white fades-in underneath and until 2006, the respective company byline appears below the company name.

  • There is also a "60th Anniversary" variant.

FX/SFX: The camera panning to show the Republic bald eagle.

Cheesy Factor: It looks as if they didn't put any effort into this. They make a bald eagle perched on top of a volcano seem boring than anything else.

Music/Sounds: A wind blowing effect, followed by a dramatic string tune. The still variant uses the second half of the jingle.

Music/Sounds Variant: This logo plastered the Paramount logo on some 1990s-era prints of the Fleischer Brothers' animated Gulliver's Travels. On said prints, the beginning of the opening credits music played over this logo.
