I'll agree that the larger logo is a little bit too busy, but scaled 
down its not so bad.

Looking at those icons I agree with Chip about the eyes and the 
expression.. It really looks like its strung out on some crystal meth 
and been up for days, and doesn't really seem too happy about its life. 
All you need to do is draw in a few bloodshot red lines. The eyes 
themselves look kinda goofy, like Crazy eyes O_o

Perhaps a revision on the eyes and expression is in order? Maybe some 
"Happy eyebrows" might help.. =)
