Background

Launched in 1995, Highschool Sweethearts was a production company owned by Fran Drescher and her husband Peter Marc Jacobson. The company's main purpose was to produce The Nanny, of course, they also co-produced (albeit being uncredited) the 1997 Paramount film The Beautician and the Beast. When the show ended in 1999, Drescher and Jacobson closed the production company.

(September 11, 1995-June 23, 1999)

Logo: In a dark bedroom, we see a man (who is holding a remote, possibly Peter Marc Jacobson) and a woman (presumably Fran Drescher) in bed, illuminated by a large spotlight. The man and the woman lean in and kiss, and the logo zooms out slightly to reveal the text:

Highschool SweetHearts

in a scraggly, Addams Family-type font in a picture frame above them. The woman puts her hand on the man's cheek. The man looks at the camera slyly, and then "turns off" the logo, with the spotlight shrinking into the bottom-right corner of the screen.

Variant:

  • There is a version that features no zooming out of the logo.
  • The Nanny Christmas Special: Oy to the World had the phrase "In Association With" below the logo.

Technique: Cartoon animation.

Music/Sounds: A three-note Kenny G-esque sax tune. Original CBS airings used a generic theme.

Availability: Seen on seasons 3-6 of The Nanny.
