Cabin Fever Entertainment
Formed in 1987, Cabin Fever Entertainment was a subsidiary of UST Inc., parent of the U.S. Tobacco Company. In 1998, UST sold Cabin Fever to Hallmark Cards and was folded into Hallmark Home Entertainment.
Logo: Against a black background, some chunks of wood fly out and form a red cabin with a very thick white outline with some smoke coming out of the chimney on the right. Then, a red rectangle swoops in from the right and settles below the cabin. "CABIN FEVER" rises up from the line, and "ENTERTAINMENT INC.", spaced to fit the width of byline, fades in below.
- On early releases from the company, this logo was preceded by the Merriam-Webster dictionary definition for "cabin fever".
- The logo was later reanimated. One notable difference is that the red shape at the center of the cabin initially appears as a three-dimensional block. Originally, the shape was flat and initially appeared as a red line which then flipped over.
- A still version also exists.
- Sometimes, "Distributed by" is seen above the logo.
Technique: The wood and morphing effect.
Music/Sounds: A country-style guitar and harmonica tune.
Availability: Can be seen on the Our Gang/Little Rascals and Lonesome Dove video releases between 1990 and 1995 as well as others. The still version appeared on Buffalo Girls.
