A Foul Tempered Woman Productions[]

Background: This was the vanity card of Katherine Green, executive producer of the short-lived Fox sitcom Rachel Gunn, R.N..

(June 28-September 4, 1992)

Logo: On a gold background, the words "A Foul Tempered Woman" fade in, and then "PRODUCTIONS" fades in below that. A squiggly curve design with an arrow on the end then fades in and completes its run. What then appears to be a woman's arm with a long-sleeve gray dress (the hand has extremely long red fingernails, and there is a red ring on the fourth finger) then reaches up to the top corner of the screen to rip that background away, and this cuts to the Columbia Pictures Television logo of the era.

Variant: There was an earlier version in which the logo played out as described above, but "In Association With" was above the CPT logo.

FX/SFX: The text forming, and the hand crumpling the paper.

Music/Sounds: A short piano tune plays as the logo forms, then an angry woman's voice is heard, and then as the logo cuts to the next one, the sound of paper being crumpled is heard.

Availability: Extinct, as it was only seen on Rachel Gunn, R.N..

Scare Factor: Minimal.

Adam F. Goldberg Productions[]

(2011-)

Logo: On a blue background, we see a childhood photo of Adam Goldberg (a different one each episode), with the words "Adam F. Goldberg Productions" below in white.

Variants:

  • On the S3 Goldbergs episode "12 Tapes for a Penny", one of Adam F.'s fake names is used.
  • On the S4 Goldbergs episode "Agassi", the company name is shown as "Chadam Productions", in reference to an earlier company ran by Goldberg and Chad Kremp.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None on Breaking In, but The Goldbergs (and possibly Imaginary Mary) uses a brief guitar note. ABC airings use their generic music and voiceover.

Availability: Current. First seen on Fox's Breaking In, and is currently seen on The Goldbergs and Imaginary Mary on ABC.

Scare Factor: None.

Amanda & MF Productions[]

Background: "Amanda" was the vanity label of Jane Wyman, star of CBS' 1981 prime-time soap Falcon Crest, and MF Productions was the vanity label of executive producer Michael Filerman, and was known both for solo production of the short-lived Flamingo Road and joint production (with Roundelay, vanity card of David Jacobs) of Knots Landing.

(1981-1990)

Logo: Simply an in-credit text against a shot of the Falcon Crest mansion (actually the mansion house of the Spring Mountain Winery) that said "An Amanda & MF Production in association with", after it faded off the screen, the appropriate Lorimar Television logo then appeared (the 1978 logo until 1986, the second 1986 Lorimar-Telepictures from 1986 to around 1988 or 1989, and the 1988 Lorimar Television logo from 1989 to 1990).

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The last notes of the Falcon Crest closing theme (which varied by season).

Availability: Seen on Falcon Crest, and also intact on the DVD releases of seasons 1-3 (and on the German iTunes release of season 4).

Scare Factor: None.

Ashmont Productions[]

Background: Ashmont Productions was a production company founded by then husband-and-wife duo, William "Bill" Asher and Elizabeth Montgomery, who were working at Screen Gems for the hit 1964 TV series Bewitched. It was founded in 1965 and was in-name-only in the beginning.

(1971-1974)

Logo: We have an in-credit text that reads "An Ashmont Production".

Variant: On The Paul Lynde Show, the text is in brown and appears on a yellow background with the text "In Association with" below.

AN ASHMONT PRODUCTION In Association with

FX/SFX: None.

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

Availability: Rare. It's only seen on the final season of Bewitched on DVD and the two short-lived series: The Paul Lynde Show and The New Temperature's Rising Show.

Scare Factor: None.

The Black/Marlens Company[]

(1987-1998)

Nicknames: "The Marlin", "The Animated Scribble"

Logo: We see a white background with a black rectangle. Inside the black rectangle, it says "The Black/Marlens Company". On the white background is a scribble being drawn like paper and a pen. The scribble resembles a marlin fish.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The marlin drawing, which some people might consider to look fairly cheap.

Music/Sounds: A fantasy-oriented synthesizer fanfare, or the end theme of the show.

Availability: Appears on The Wonder Years on the StarVista DVD release. Also seen on the Corey Feldman special Corey Feldman's Hats Off and Ellen among others.

Scare Factor: None. The logo looks cool. Probably a favorite amongst some of the fans of the logo community.

Cosmos Studios[]

(March 9, 2014 - June 8, 2014)

Background: This "company" is a vanity card made for the education/scientific miniseries Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, hosted by astrophysicist Neal deGrasse Tyson and produced by Family Guy, American Dad, and Ted creator Seth McFarlane. This series is a revival and reboot of the 1980 mini-series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage, which was hosted by the late astrophysicist and astronomer Carl Sagan. The show first aired on March 9, simultaneously on all of the 21st Century Fox broadcasting networks for 2 hours on that Sunday night, which drew 8.5 million viewers.

Logo: The logo starts out by fading in the word Cosmos, the Spiral Galaxy and the dandelion seedling all in gold in a black backdrop. During the beginning of showing the company's logo, we see two thin gold lines below the Cosmos font moving horizontally in opposite direction with a dark void in between the two lines. This dark void creates a header that would showcase the show in nutshell with numerous objects ( a comet, several satellite radar dishes, the moon, Earth, Saturn, Mercury, maple leaf, the Sun, Supernova, etc.). After the text, spiral galaxy, and the seedling are shown, and the picture header is created by the two lines, we see stars blink like paparazzi in the galaxy while it's rotating slightly, we see the seedling drifting slightly while twinkling, the letters shining slightly and the lines rocking gently back and forth.

FX/SFX: The spiral galaxy rotating slightly while the stars are blinking, the dandelion seedling drifting slightly while blinking, and the lines rocking back and forth gently.

Music/Sounds: The sounds of the sea or ocean and seagulls chirping in the background.

Availability: Pretty common. It appears on Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, which itself is a common program, being available on home video and streaming services.

Scare Factor: Absolutely none. The sounds of the ocean and seagulls make this logo pretty relaxing; however, the sounds might not be someone's cup of tea when it comes to relaxing as they will get annoyed by it.

Dorothy Parker Drank Here Productions[]

(2000-present)

Nickname: "The Smoke"

Logo: On a shaded grey background, we see a picture of a '50s-era woman with her back turned sitting and smoking, and with a martini glass in her right hand. When the smoke grows, the words "DOROTHY PARKER DRANK HERE" Dorothy Parker Drank Here (2007) appears via shading, and then " P R O D U C T I O N S" surrounded by two lines.

FX/SFX: The smoke growing, the shading; all computer effects.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Appears on Gilmore Girls on Freeform.

Scare Factor: None.

Film in Florida[]

(2011-)

Nickname: "Florida"

Logo: On a white background, we see a drawing of the U.S. state, Florida. On the middle of the drawing, it says "film" and "florida.com" in blue, with ".com" smaller than the other words. In the middle of the two words, there is a tiny green circle in between that says "in" on it. On the left of "film", there is a yellow hand-drawn sun on the back of it.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Current. First seen on the Latin American show Grachi and later on it's English remake, Every Witch Way.

Scare Factor: None.

Hemingson Entertainment[]

Background: This is David Hemingson's vanity card.

(September 19, 2005-May 22, 2019)

Logo: On a black background, we see the orange words "Hemingson" zoom out with a flash. Then the white words "Entertainment" on the bottom right zooming out with a flash.

Variant: On Traffic Light and Friends with Better Lives, the logo is still.

FX/SFX: The zooming out of the logo.

Music/Sounds: Two camera shuttering sounds as the letters zoom out. On Traffic Light and Friends with Better Lives, it has the end title theme of the show. Fox, ABC and CBS airings used a generic theme.

Availability: Seen on Kitchen Confindental, The Deep End, Traffic Light, Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23, Friends with Better Lives and Whiskey Cavalier.

Editor's Note: None.

Important Television[]

Background: This production company was ran by Trey Parker and Matt Stone.

(April 4-May 23, 2001, November 20, 2007-January 8, 2008)

Nicknames: "Mr. Blue Sky", "The Important Logo"

Logo: A man is standing in front of a cloudy sky background with his hands on his hips rotating clockwise. In front of him, spins out the words "IMPORTANT" in sky blue made of glass and "TELEVISION" below in dark blue on a line that is white on one end, but changes to royal blue through the other side both of which are curved.

Variant: On Kenny vs. Spenny, the logo begins when the text spins in.

FX/SFX: Live-action with chroma key while the logo is CGI.

Music/Sounds: The fanfare from the Braniff logo, though somewhat more beefed-up.

Music/Sounds Variant: On Kenny vs. Spenny, the end theme plays over it.

Availability: Rare. Seen on That's My Bush! and season 4 episodes of Kenny vs. Spenny starting with "Who Can Make the Best Viral Video".

Scare Factor: Low. The music can come across as unpredictable. None for the end theme variant. It's a humorous logo nonetheless.

Mohawk Productions Inc.[]

(March 14, 1994-December 22, 2014)

Nicknames: "Kicking Baby In Womb", "Ultrasound Baby", "Giggling Fetus", "The Baby"

Logo: We see an actual shot of an ultrasound (the blurry X-ray of what of a baby looks like in a pregnant mother) of a fetus, moving around a bit. The text:

MOHAWK

PRODUCTIONS, INC.

has already appeared, "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" fades in below, and toward the end of the logo, the fetus giggles.

Trivia:

  • The son of Mohawk Prods. founder Bruce Helford - named Aven - is the fetus in the logo. The giggle is also Aven's.
  • One idea that the people in the company had was to use something with Mohawk Indians, but wanted something more personal.

Variants:

  • On at least one episode of The Drew Carey Show ("Drew Blows His Promotion"), the fetus farts instead.
  • The fetus has meowed on The Drew Carey Show episode "What's Wrong With This Episode?"
  • On at least one episode of The George Lopez Show, the drums loop a few times, which may or may not have been intentional.
  • Starting in 2002, the Mohawk text became more stylized and became animated. The Mohawk text became a bit more cursive (except for the "H"), and is over a box, half black, half white, with a set of TV antennae. The text, "PRODUCTIONS, INC. IN ASSOCIATION WITH" is below. This whole logo comes in from the left (a la Paramount Blue Mountain), with the box spinning in and stopping in the center as the text "springs" out. The animation/ultrasound is about the same, except it has a blue tint to it this time, instead of black/white like before.
  • Sometimes, the 2002 version would be much shorter (containing a shortened drumbeat which lasted around 1-2 seconds, followed by the fetus's giggle).

FX/SFX: The actual ultrasound.

Music/Sounds: A drumbeat followed by a baby's giggle. Due to compressed credits on ABC, there was often an accordion-tinged generic ABC jingle playing over (intended to resemble music played over establishing shots on The Drew Carey Show), but the giggle still remains.

Availability: Common. It can be seen on reruns of The Drew Carey Show on local syndication, and the updated version (as well as the shortened version) can be seen on George Lopez on Nick @ Nite, Ion Television, and local syndication. It also appears on The Oblongs on Adult Swim, and Wanda at Large on TV One. It also appeared on The Norm Show (or simply Norm), which has faded into obscurity. The logo first appeared on Someone Like Me, a very short-lived sitcom that aired on NBC in early 1994. Also seen on Anger Management (2011) reruns in syndication.

Scare Factor: Low to high. Some people have been scared of this logo, but those who are used to seeing it won't find it scary.

Murray Hemingway Productions[]

(1991)

Logo: Just an in-credit notice, saying

MURRAY HEMINGWAY PRODUCTIONS In Association With

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Ultra rare, only appeared on the unaired TV pilot of Revenge of the Nerds, which can be found on the "Panty Raid" edition of Revenge of the Nerds, the movie the show was based on.

Scare Factor: None, unless the sound of Lewis Skolnick's laughter heard at the end of the theme scares you.
