(1994- )

Logo: We see the text "PAUL BROWNSTEIN" that rotates throughout. When the logo stops rotating, "PRODUCTIONS" appears in stop motion in a blinds effect.

Variant:

  • Sometimes, the words "DISTRIBUTED BY" appear above "PAUL BROWNSTEIN" before "PRODUCTIONS" appears.
  • In later years, the URL text "www.tvclassics.com" slides in at the bottom from the right side of the screen (a la Paramount Television).
  • In the late 2000s, the logo was redone in a different font and with a motion blur when the logo is spinning.

FX/SFX: The rotating and the text appearing.

Music/Sounds: A fast-paced big band tune.

Music/Sounds Variant: On The Best of American Bandstand on VH1, its the tail end of the theme of the 1989 Dick Clark Productions logo.

Availability: Can be seen on syndicated prints of Sonny and Cher, The Color Honeymooners, Here's Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, and The Richard Pryor Show, among others. Surprisingly seen on The Judy Garland Show in syndication, followed by a 1993 The Program Exchange logo.

Editor's Note: None.
