Bad Idea Productions was a vanity card of Patrick Johnson. It was used in The Simons, until he left the show during the half of season 2.

Logo: Depending on the episode
- Season 1
- The Company Man: Against a silk background, we see a old MacIntosh computer with floppy disk and Apple mouse. Underneath the screen, it has "Bad Idea" and small "Productions" texts (in Peignot font).
- Any Given Sunday: Under a table, it has (not the same, but another) Mac computer with the same "Bad Idea" text, but in another font.
