1st Logo
(1982-June 3, 1987)


  • On Ripley's Believe It or Not!, we see the text: "A HALEY-LYON-RASTAR PRODUCTION" with the Rastar logo seen beside the names, with the copyright stamp "Copyright © (year) by Rastar Television, Inc." below it then the text "All Rights Reserved" below followed by a television code below and the the text "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" at the bottom. On 1982 episodes, it's "A HALEY/LYON/RASTAR PRODUCTION". Starting in 1983, the text and Rastar logo are seen below the end credits. On 1984-86 episodes, the text "A HALEY/LYON" is above the Rastar logo (now in the middle), and "PRODUCTION" is below.
  • On the short-lived series Blue Thunder, the text says "A RASTAR PRODUCTIONS, INC. and PUBLIC ARTS, INC." with the text "In Association With" below and appears on an azure blue background.
  • On Nothing in Common, the text reads as "A RASTAR Production In Association With".

Variants: Two sub-variations of the Blue Thunder variant exist:

  • On episode 8, "Payload", the text appears on a blue background.
  • On the following episode, "The Long Flight", the text appears in-credit.

FX/SFX: The text either cutting in or fading in.

Music/Sounds: The end-title theme from any show.

Availability: Rare. It can be found on the TV adaptation of Blue Thunder. Was also seen on the first revival of Ripley's Believe it or Not! and the short-lived series, Nothing in Common.

Editor's Note: The Blue Thunder variant suffers from grammar flaws.
