1st Logo (1987-1995)

GE9hyyinYDDcW0BEzmFYug29200.jpeg

Logo: On a dark gray marble BG, we see the Gaumont Télévision logo, with "Gaumont" written in red in its corporate font, "Télévision" written in gray in a fancy sans serif font, and a thick gray line below it. The logo "ripples" once.

Variants:

  • Sometimes, the logo is still.
  • On Highlander: The Animated Series, a screen of rippling and swirling blue waves (part of the closing credits) crossfades into the Gaumont Télévision logo, which animates as usual, then fades to the blue waves again.

Technique: The "rippling".

Music/Sounds: A dreamy synth tune, none, or the ending theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on '80s and '90s TV shows produced by Gaumont, such as Highlander: The Series (both live-action and animated). The live action series is currently seen on Syfy.

Legacy: This logo might remind some of the 3rd Lorimar Television logo, although this logo predates it by about a year!

2nd Logo (1995-2001)

Logo: On a space background, we see a extremely zoomed-in shot of the then-current Gaumont red daisy logo. Under is "Gaumont" in the same color of the daisy, and "Télévision", but in white.

Variant: Sometimes the tail end of the standard movie logo of the time is played instead.

Technique: None; it's a still logo.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Can be seen on their shows produced from 1995 to 2001, such as Relic Hunter.
