To answer OP’s question, I liked the Starry Night production logo (preferably without the laugh).
Slightly off topic: was anyone here afraid of Viacom’s “V of Doom”? I keep reading about that logo scared people when they were kids.

Two for one here. The Rank Organization man made me tingle as a baby gay. I always wanted the camera to stay on him a bit longer. The Archers logo meant you were in for something special, like "Black Narcissus" or "A Matter of Life and Death".

This was from the 1980s show Thirtysomething. It's from the song "Buffalo gal won't you come out tonight, come out tonight, come out tonight? Buffalo gal won't you come out tonight and dance by the light of the moon?"
One night, after this logo played, my mom sang "annnnnd dance by the light raccoon," referring to a small, stuffed, toy raccoon that was sitting near the tv. She and I laughed hard at her unexpected absurdity and we sometimes still sing the altered jingle.

The Universal logo with the little airplane circling the globe (early-mid1930s) was charming. You only heard the sound of the aircraft engine. That was replaced by the globe with the glittery stars and a brassy fanfare.

NBC's infamous "Proud as a Peacock" re-branding (when they reintroduced the peacock emblem) had two good parodies: people at NBC affiliates, fed up with the show being in last place, did a "We're loud!" (rather than "We're proud") number, but the funniest was the SNL parody: "NBC... Smart as a Peacock!"
