Subject: The Always Famous Closing Logos Thread

Written By: AngeFaitore on 01/24/05 at 12:36 pm

I'm suprised that there isn't a widely active Closing Logos thread here that goes on for 98 pages, considering how popular the subject is on retro sites.
I'll fire it off because I know someone will start going on forever about the Viacom Purple V of Doom (I like the sliver flying V with the sliding synth myself) or the Screen Gems thingamabob.
I'm in love with the DiC Animation logos for some twisted reason... I even have the logo themes on my Nomad MP3 Jukebox.

You haunt my dreams... yet I love you so much. Your animation quality is the real nightmare...

I loved the way the old NBC color shows would close with the NBC "Snake" logo and an RCA TK-41 color camera gliding across the screen....http://www.kingoftheroad.net/colorTV/NBCproductionlogo_1.html

My favorite ending logo would have to be the one that they show at the end of Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Angel.

I love Ten Thirteen Productions "I made this!" and Chuck Lorre when he started writing stories on his logo every week.

That's quite cool. That's from the period of time where the metallic logos were cool.

I'm sure you're talking about a UK network, but I don't know what you're talking about.
There was a whole trend of metallic logos during the 1980s and early 1990s. It had to do with a computer program called Paintbox that did some neato effects in shiny 3D.

I love the song they used to use for NBC promos.... "Let's All Be There!"  If anyone knows where I can find an MP3 of it, let me know.

Thanks.

What was the one that had a greasy hand banging a mallet on a steel wall making a loud "DING" sound.  I remember it at the end of Adam-12.

The Rankin Bass logo at the end of the CHristmas specials.

I liked that one too, but you could only see it once a year!

There was actually a lawsuit involved with that logo--apparently it was copied from Nebraska Public Television and I think NPTV won. However, NBC got to keep the logo and NPTV wound up changing theirs.

One of my favorite network logos has to be the original HBO logo sequence from the 1980s with the bombastic disco anthem.
They still have strains of the music in the "feature" logo sequence, but it's not the same.

It had that "rotating record" disco beat to it. I have an MP3 of the theme on my older Macintosh.

I like the old Geffen ball with the black background (no pun intended, since David Geffen is openly gay). The new logo, which is the block letters DEG leaning against each other, looks ordinary. The old United Artists/Transamerica logo was also cool.

Is that the logo that starts with a minature 'town' and then gradually builds up to the HBO FEATURE PRESENTATION logo?

I read in an interview with Cannell that he cannot really type due to dyslexia...

I had trouble learning how to print and write as a child,therefore I was taught basic use of a typewriter....I still feel more comfortable with a keyboard than a pen although I can write..it tends to be sloppy.
