Logo: On a black background, we see a still shot of the Camelot Entertainment Sales logo, which is the word "CAMELOT" in a giant red font with a silver border around the letters and "ENTERTAINMENT SALES" in a small white font centered underneath the logo.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized medieval trumpet fanfare that starts with a drum.

Availability: Very rare.

  • It was seen on James Bond Jr. and the first season of Catwalk.
  • Season 2 of that show remains as of 2022, unaired and lost due to a licensing conflict between MTV Networks and the creator of the program, Adam Kidron.

2nd Logo (1993-1997)

Logo: We see a New York City skyline at dusk (including the pre-2001 World Trade Center). The word "CAMELOT" in a giant Baker-Miller pink gradient font zooms up from behind the buildings, followed by the words "ENTERTAINMENT SALES", also in Baker-Miller pink, in a smaller typeface.

Variants:

  • A long version exists where at the end, the background fades to black.
  • The pilot of Bruno the Kid had a still variant of the logo with the text "EXCLUSIVE NATIONAL ADVERTISING SALES AGENT, CAMELOT ENTERTAINMENT SALES, INC." under it.

Technique: Simple computer animation.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1990 King World Productions logo.

Availability: Extinct.

  • The long variant appeared on some episodes of Bruno The Kid as well.
  • The still variant with the byline, is only know to be seen on the pilot of the aforementioned show.
