Default Help me with a fun, stupid thing to do with Cartoons

I found this "Simpsons-adjacent" podcast called Round Springfield, and it's decent enough but that's not the point.

Here's their logo:

(click for slightly bigger)

Obviously I need to identify the origins of all the letters. I have most, but there are a few stragglers and most of those are making me crazy because I really feel like I should know them. They're all supposed to be from other projects that Simpsons people have done, so like Matt Groening, David X. Cohen, Josh Weinstein, etc.

So far I have:



I don't think they necessarily all need to be from cartoons, but I haven't identified any that aren't.



What do you think, :fflove:? Do the four or so of us that remain have it in us to finish this thing? Go team! :jd:

That second I is such a generic typewriter i that it could be from probably a lot of things. For example, The Office would work, but I also feel like there is a cartoon that has a font like that but of course I can't put my finger on it.

Spent far longer than I would care to admit on trying to find where that 'U' is from. Seems like it should be one of the easier ones to identify, but I got nothing :shrug:

Right? I feel that way about several of them. Like the one with the bird on it. I know I've seen that before. But where?! :whygod:

Since Conan O'Brien is definitely in the mix when it comes to Simpsons creators, I thought based on the city skyline that maybe the U represented one of his non-cartoon talk shows. But neither Tonight Show nor Late Night has a U in the name. Baffling.

I've brought this post over to this thread because Isolation Diaries moves too quickly and I still want to get all these. Also maybe people can have another look at ES's and try to finish those as well.

So far we are missing:
4.

14.
16.
18.

I think we are right on the rest, but 11. and 17. are 'probably' not certainly for us.

I'll post ours under spoilers after people have had a chance to try themselves.
Here are our answers:

1. The Simpsons
2. Super Mario Bros
3. Batman
4.
5. Dexters Lab
6. Wallace and Grommit
7. Family Guy
8.
9.
10. The Flintstones
11. Deadpool (?)
12. Minions
13. South Park
14.
15. Futurama
16. Danger Mouse
17. Mickey and Minnie Mouse (?)
18.
19. Star Wars
20. Star Trek

You know, it could be Bugs Bunny.

I don't really get the red line, but maybe his mouth, which is nearly always open?

That's the best answer I've heard so far.

I think it works - imagine his ears laying a bit flatter to get the height correct, and the pupils of his eyes a bit larger for the black line.

I've spent another hour or so looking for that U, but I can't find it. It's like my white whale now. I could find every other missing letter and it would mean nothing. I must have that U :gnash:

I got sort of excited there for a second, when I saw the U blown up, it really looks like the Empire State building on the right side. So I looked up all TV shows set in NY. I found this:

And I know it's not right, but I was, like, almost excited. For about 1/10 of a second.
