Background: Satin City is the production company of Linwood Boomer, founded in 1991. The company never used a logo until 2000; the unaired pilot of Red Dwarf USA simply used an in-credit logo.
(January 9, 2000-May 14, 2006)
Nicknames: "The Tubes", "Satin Skyscrapers"
Logo: Against a teal background, the word "Satin", in light blue script, is drawn in, flashing several times and appearing very out-of-focus. "CITY", in white, appears below letter-by-letter, and also flashes and re-draws several times. In the background, some teal "tubes" (intended to be buildings) with purple tips are drawn in.
FX/SFX: The text appearing and tubes being drawn in.
Music/Sounds: 2 bumps, following a single electric piano note rising in pitch. On the pilot episode of the show, it was completely silent (sans the R1 DVD and streaming prints).
Music/Sounds Variant: Early season 1 episodes of Malcolm in the Middle have an odd-sounding synthesized chord playing over the logo.
Availability: Seen only on Malcolm in the Middle.
Editor's Note: None.
