Alex Winter shares who created the Wyld Stallyns Logo

Here it is, the answer to one of life's greatest questions. Better yet, we get the answer straight from one of the Great Ones, Bill S. Preston, Esquire, himself.

Let’s all thank Bill for letting us in on this amazing piece of most-non-trivial knowledge.


First, a brief history of Wyld Stallyns

Wyld Stallyns is the name of the fictional band from Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Quite possibly the best movie of all time, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure follows a day in the life of the two Great Ones, Bill S. Preston, Esquire, and Ted “Theodore” Logan, two pseudo-slackers who come together to give the single greatest history report ever given.

These two fine gents travel throughout time to acquire some of history’s most notable figures, from (Bob) Genghis Khan, to (Dave) Beethoven, to Abraham Lincoln, to help them pass the history report (more of a presentation if we are being honest).

Why is passing the history report important?

If they don’t pass, then Ted’s father will ship him off to (Colonel) Oates Military Academy in Alaska. This will be the end of Wyld Stallyns, and that just won’t do.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wondered who created the Wyld Stallyns logo. And the answer doesn’t disappoint, it is a friend of Alex’s, @SLICK_DISSIZIT.

May we all honor this person’s contribution to society on a daily basis.

The artwork of Wyld Stallyns

The Wyld Stallyns brand extends beyond the logo, as seen on Bill’s sweatshirt from the movie. The horse on fire is so iconic.
