PRODUCTIONS

  • On Magnum P.I., the text reads as:

PRODUCTIONS

with the names "BELISARIUS" and "GLEN A. LARSON" in a larger font.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The end-title theme of the show.

Availability: Uncommon. It's still intact on Magnum P.I. and Quincy, M.E.. Also seen on Battlestar Galactica and its ill-fated successor Galactica 1980 whenever they're reran, and on the short-lived Sword of Justice.


2nd Logo (October 24, 1981-January 4, 1992)

Nicknames: "Gold GL", "GL"

Logo: On a black background, long gold light streaks travel from all sides of the screen, crossing each other in a spot on the upper left hand side. When the light streaks connect with each other, there are a few visible sparkles. The light streaks form a round square-like shape. The shape flashes brightly as two more streaks (which come from the top and left sides of the screen) go through it. The flash reveals a shining gold capital "G" (outlined in white) with an "L" crossing through the bottom part of it. At the same time, white text appears to the right that says "A GLEN LARSON PRODUCTION". Then more text appears underneath that says "IN ASSOCIATION WITH".

Variants:

  • A videotaped variant without the "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text exists.
  • Depending on the film print, the background may be dark turquoise, dark blue or light blue.
  • A short version also exists.
  • On Image West demo reel #20 (1982), a rainbow streak swirls around the logo, transitioning into the next animation on the tape.
  • A print version of the logo exists on early episodes of The Fall Guy.
  • On E4 UK airings of The Fall Guy and Knight Rider, the logo has the E4 on-screen bug at the top left of the screen. On the latter, a short version is used.

FX/SFX: The gold light streaks, sparkles, and flashing letters. Great computer animation.

Music/Sounds: A dramatic six-note orchestral score, composed by Glen A. Larson himself.

Music/Sound Variant:

  • On Knight Rider, the logo theme has been re-orchestrated and sped-up.
  • Also on some shows, Mr. Larson's voice over would say: "[NAME OF THE SHOW] is a Glen Larson Production..."

Availability: Uncommon.

  • Seen on shows from the time like The Fall Guy, Automan, Manimal, Masquerade, Cover Up, and Knight Rider and TV movies of the time period.
