      One logo that never changes is the McDonald's logo. That and Coca-Cola.

      Not 100% true.



      Companies have simplified their logo's over the years by removing the name once the logo becomes synonymous.



      Here are some logo changes.

          This is one of the worst offenders, in my opinion. Every time I see the ad on television, I gag.

          Also, I had no clue Toys R Us changed their mascot's look as well. It looks to be as awful of a change of Chuck E. Cheese.

              I'm just as disappointed in Chuck's current look as you guys are. If you're going to change a cartoon character's look, make him recognizable.

              @Derk:

              Geoffrey has had that look for a few years now. He looks quite obscure imo.

                I've never noticed it had actually changed. The design is too simplistic, in my opinion. It looks like someone was trying to rip-off Toys R Us, not the actual logo.

                  You forgot to mention when they used the live action giraffe.

                    The newest iteration of Geoffery looks like he is straight from those Moose J. Moose segments from Nick Jr.

                      It has to appeal to the kids today. I haven't seen Moose J Moose, but if it looks similar to a decent cartoon, the new version might be doing its job. Either way, I don't think the new Geoffrey is too bad. But I never had much opinion on the old version.

                      But I do agree that Chuck E Cheese assaults intelligence offensively. He's so transparently the result of somebody carpetbagging "extreme" style or culture or whatever that is. He reminds me of Roy, the cool guy who moved in with the Simpsons that one time.

                        That Chuck E. Cheese one is just lazy, they haven't updated the look anywhere else but the commercials.

                        The last old Taco Bell sign in the area just gave in to the new design about three months ago. I used to pass it on the way to work and it gave me that tiny flutter of nostalgia every time.

                              Geez. Payless' logo looks like it has gone from a shoe store to a credit card issuer.

                                The running theme with these "updated" logos (RJ's included) is that they're just lazy.

                                  But laziness is much in the spirit of the restaurant itself.

                                      That basic, cookie cutter logo is a perfect representation of what that channel has evolved into.

                                        Hahaha. I've never thought of it that way.

                                          It's like they just sucked the fun out of Nickelodeon with the current logo's look.
