Closing Logo Group

Background: MGM Television was established on June 30, 1956 by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer under Loews, Inc. It was initiated to have MGM to distribute 770 of its films alongside 900 shorts, produce network series, and acquire TV stations after its first program, the short-lived series The M-G-M Parade, was canceled by ABC in the spring. The M-G-M Parade first used the 1953 version of Jackie at the beginning rather than the end of the program. The company did not use an end logo until 1957. Most of the pre-1986 library is owned by Warner Bros. Entertainment through Turner Entertainment Co., while MGM Holdings Inc. owns the rest of the library.

1st Logo (September 20, 1957-October 2, 1960)[]

Nickname: "MGM Lion Statue"

Logo: On a gray background, we see a drawn statue of the MGM logo, as seen on movies from 1924-1983, sitting on a pedestal. There is text seen over the statue saying "AN MGM-TV PRESENTATION". with the "MGM-TV" word shown in a bigger font.

Variants:

  • On season 2 of The Thin Man, the text is in a different font and the text is shifted up to make room for the name "RICHARD MAIBUM" and the words "Executive Producer" is shown below the logo.
  • On The Islanders, the text "MGM-TV" zooms in from the center.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variant: On The Islanders, a voice-over says, "An MGM television production".

Availability: This appeared only on the three short-lived series Northwest Passage, The Islanders, and The Thin Man. This logo was retained on recent airings of the latter on GetTV.

2nd Logo (September 14, 1958-March 13, 1959)[]

Nickname: "MGM Lion Statue II"

Logo: On a blue silk background, we see the same statue of the MGM logo from the previus logo, but only this time it was in realistic gold. Behind the statue was the text reading "AN MGM-TV PRODUCTION" and below it was the name "SAMUEL MARX" and the word "Executive Producer" is below everything else.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen only on the 1958-59 NBC color series Northwest Passage.

3rd Logo (September 18, 1960-June 1, 1962)[]

Nicknames: "Leo the Lion", "Lion on Live-Action Background", "Trumpet Lion"

Logo: We see Leo, the (in)famous MGM lion from the movie logo of the era, but this time in black and white, inside a circle border, which reads "METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER TELEVISION" in a sans serif font and a white circular outline is surrounding the text and the lion. The lion roars twice. The whole thing is shot on a backdrop setting from the show, or on the same background as on the end credits.

Variants:

  • On National Velvet, the logo disappears in an iris out effect while the show's title (in quote marks) is appears in an iris in effect.
  • Some episodes of National Velvet had a smaller image of a lion's face, and the text and the outline is a bit bold like it was in the next logo.
  • On The Islanders, the logo disappears, while the title zooms in.
  • Starting in 1961, the logo is shortened, with Leo roaring only once. Plus the lion is a bit larger and the white circle outline surrounding the lion is dropped.
  • On a few episodes of Cain's Hundred, the lion's face is off-center.
  • On a rerun of The Asphalt Jungle, the logo simply fades in.

FX/SFX: Leo roaring.

Music/Sounds:

  • 1960-1961: A three note drum sound followed by dramatic fanfare played by a trumpet, synced to the animation of the lion roaring: the audio of the roar is replaced by a loud vibration of a muted trumpet as part of the fanfare. On National Velvet, this is followed by a 3-note loud trumpet theme when the show's title is wiped on-screen.
  • 1961-1962: The same lion roar as on the 1957 movie logo.

Music/Sounds/Voice-over Variant: On a re-run of The Asphalt Jungle, a voice-over said: "The Asphalt Jungle, A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Television Production".

Availability: Rare, as the logo was only used for two years.

  • It can be seen on The Islanders, The Asphalt Jungle, National Velvet, Cain's Hundred, the CBS sitcom The Father of the Bride and the first season of Dr. Kildare.
  • On current prints of MGM's shows from the era, the B&W version of the Turner Globe follows the logo, or the B&W version of the WBTV shield follows the logo.

Editor's Note: As with other MGM logos, the lion's roar has frightened some young viewers, and the trumpet vibrations on the 1960-61 fanfare may have a similar effect. But other viewers who grew up seeing this logo on a '60s TV at the time may view it fondly. Generally, it's regarded as a memorably distinct variant of the famous MGM lion logo. The design would later go on to be used in subsequent logos.

4th Logo (September 1962?-May 16, 1966)[]

Nicknames: "Lion Wallpaper", "Grey Lion Wallpaper", "Yellow Lion Wallpaper", "Leo the Lion II"

Logo: On a grey background, we see the image of a wallpaper of a lion's face. We see the same design from the previous logo, complete with the same image from Leo from the previous logo, except the circular border (which surrounds the text, which was still in white) was black, and the outlines are a bit bolder. The lion roars once.

Trivia: The same image was used as the print logo of MGM Records until 1968.

Variant: On the Dr. Kildare episode "The Burning Sky", the wallpaper and the Leo footage is tinted in gold, since it was shot and aired in color.

FX/SFX: Same as before.

Music/Sounds: The same roar seen on the 1961 version of the previous logo.

Availability: Was most commonly seen on black and white shows of the time period, like Dr. Kildare, The Eleventh Hour, The Lieutenant, Harry's Girls, The Travels of Jaimie McPheeters, Mr. Novak, season 1 of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., A Man Called Shenandoah, and Many Happy Returns.

  • This logo was last seen on The Man From U.N.C.L.E. on Heroes & Icons, which the network stopped airing in August 2017. Most MGM TV series from this era are now owned by Warner Bros. Television (via parent company Time Warner's acquisition of Turner Entertainment Co.), so many current prints of these shows have the Turner Entertainment Globe and the Warner Bros. Television "Shield" logos, following the MGM Television logo.

Editor's Note: Like the last logo, those who grew up watching Sixties black and white TV may remember the logo. Also, the lion's roar frightened some viewers.

5th Logo (September 19, 1964-1973)[]

Nicknames: "Lion Wallpaper II", "Red Lion Wallpaper", "Leo the Lion III"

Logo: Same as the previous logo, except the lion wallpaper background is colored in red, the text and circle outlines are surrounding the lion are in yellow, and the Leo the Lion image was is in the normal color palette from the movie logo. Plus, Leo the Lion is zoomed out to show more of his body.

Variants:

  • On How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, the wallpaper is either brown or pink/butter yellow, depending on film quality.
  • A black and white version exists on B&W kinescope prints of color shows, such as Hollywood: The Dream Factory.

FX/SFX: Same as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.

Availability: Common.

  • It debuted on Flipper, and it was seen on every MGM show filmed in color since then, such as Daktari, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., The Courtship of Eddie's FatherPlease Don't Eat the DaisiesMedical Center, the final season of Dr. Kildare, The Girl from U.N.C.L.E., Hondo, The Rounders, JerichoOff to See the Wizard, Maya, Then Came Bronson, Young Dr. Kildare and Assignment Vienna (which was aired as part of ABC's "The Men" wheel series), as well as early made for TV movies of the era.
  • Like the last logo, most MGM TV series from this era are now owned by Warner Bros. Television (via parent company Time Warner's acquisition of Turner Entertainment Co.), so many current prints of these shows have the Turner Entertainment Globe and the Warner Bros. Television "Shield" logos, following the MGM Television logo, while series not owned by Time Warner (such as Flipper) may have it replaced with the 2001 or MGM Domestic Television Distribution logos.
  • It survives on the Dr. Seuss cartoon specials How the Grinch Stole Christmas! (plastered by the Warner Bros. Pictures logo on NBC broadcasts) and Horton Hears a Who!, and was also seen on reruns of The Tom and Jerry Show on Boomerang during the 2000s. It is also preserved on Cartoon Network airings and the MGM/UA Home Video release of the former special.

Editor's Note: Those viewers who grew up seeing this logo at the time, or on repeats of How the Grinch Stole Christmas!, may view it fondly. But like the last logo, the lion's roar frightened some.

6th Logo (May 18, 1969)[]

Nicknames: "The Cold-Cream Jar"

Logo: On a black background, we see the 1966 MGM stylized lion print logo, which has some shiny marks inside of it. It then flips over, revealing it is on top of a crystallized cylinder, to reveal the large, blocky text "MgM", with "TELEVISION" in smaller writing underneath it, and the stylized lion inside the "g" of "MgM" (which is "cut out" in the middle of the two "M"s).

FX/SFX: The flipping of the cylinder.

Music/Sounds: Tanner's first roar.

Availability: Extinct. It was seen on original NBC airings and film prints of The Pogo Special Birthday Special. However, it was removed from future prints and was not seen on home video releases.

Editor's Note: This logo was lost media for years and very sought after, enough so that it was written off as a myth by some. It finally resurfaced in 2023 when Twitter user Marc Acrylic uncovered the logo.

7th Logo (September 10, 1973?-January 1982?)[]

Nicknames: "Leo the Lion IV", "White Ribboning"

Logo: It's simply a shortened version of the theatrical logo of the era without any television indicator whatsoever.

FX/SFX: The lion roaring.

Music/Sounds: The same roar as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Sometimes, it combined with the closing theme of the show, as seen on The Tom and Jerry Comedy Show.
  • On 1970s reruns of Northwest Passage, it used the 1957 first two lion roars. On the 2nd lion roar, there is a male announcer's voice-over that says, "From the MGM Studios in Hollywood."

Availability: Uncommon.

  • Seen intact on MGM shows of the era like Adam's RibMedical CenterShaft: The Series, Logan's Run, Bronk, The Montefuscos, Hawkins, Executive Suite, Jigsaw John, The Practice, Lucan, The French Atlantic AffairThe Tom and Jerry Comedy Show, early episodes of McClain's Law, Beyond Westworld, How the West has Won, and pre-1982 episodes of CHiPs.
  • This version also plastered over the previous logo on a reissue print of the Dr. Seuss cartoon special Horton Hears a Who!, as featured on home video and Cartoon Network.

Editor's Note: This logo and its successors are all variations of the well-known theatrical MGM lion logo, which despite occasionally frightening young viewers with its roaring, is overall regarded as one of the all-time classic logos. Those who watched on 1970s TV may remember the logo. By that point, this is a de-facto television logo.

8th Logo (January 1982-1990)[]

Nicknames: "Leo the Lion V", "White Ribboning II"

Logo: Same as the previous logo, except the red word "TELEVISION" is shown below the logo.

Variants:

  • A black and white version of the logo exists on the failed TV pilot Diner.
  • Starting with the 1983-84 season, the logo on top reads "MGM/UA Entertainment Co." just like with the theatrical logo, instead of "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer". Plus "TELEVISION" is a bit smaller.
  • One episode of Thicke of the Night has a still of the logo superimposed on the background.

FX/SFX: Same as before.

Music/Sounds: Same as before.

Music/Sounds/Voice-over Variants:

  • On the TV movie The Fifth Missile, it used an abridged version of the 1982 lion roar.
  • On a few Hungarian TV prints of Daktari, the logo featured various roars from the 1964 logo, due to sloppy plastering.
  • On Thicke of the NightMeatballs & Spaghetti and Pandamonium, the end theme plays over it instead of the roar.

Availability: Uncommon.

  • The first version is seen on later episodes of McClain's Law, CHiPs, Chicago StoryFame, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, Gavilian, earlier episodes of We Got It Made, and Cutter to Houston.
  • The MGM/UA Entertainment Co. Television version is retained on mid-season 1 episodes of We Got It Made, Lady Blue, Hello Kitty's Furry Tale Theater, The Dirty Dozen: The Next Mission on VHS (and possibly the 2006 DVD and 2007 Blu-ray releases of the original Dirty Dozen, which include it as a bonus feature), and seasons 3 and 5 of Fame on nuvoTV. When VH1 did a Fame marathon in 2001, all MGM logos were retained. Kids Incorporated continued to use this until 1991.

Editor's Note: For the first time since 1973, MGM got a proper television logo. This is fondly remembered amongst viewers of shows from this era.

9th Logo (1982-June 15, 1984)[]

Nicknames: "Leo the Lion VI", "Gold Ribboning"

Logo: It's basically a still picture of MGM/UA's then-corporate logo. Below "Entertainment Co.", which is separated from the MGM/UA text using two lines, is "Television Distribution": it's in the same font and uses the same style as the "Entertainment Co." text, and it's spaced below the aforementioned text.

Variant: An in-credit version exists on Thicke of the Night.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: A re-arranged version of the 1982 United Artists Television theme, followed by the 1957 roar. Otherwise, it has the show's closing music or it's silent.

Nicknames: "Leo the Lion X", "Gold Ribboning IV"

Logo: We see the then-current movie logo of the era, only shortened. The words "MGM/UA Television Productions" appear above the logo instead of the usual "Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer" text and below it is the byline reading "An MGM/UA Communications company" in the usual MGM typeface.

Variants:
