In Front Productions

From Audiovisual Identity Database

Background

This is Danny Jacobson's vanity card.

(September 23, 1992-May 16, 2001)

Logo: On a black background, we see the text:

IN FRONT
PRODUCTIONS

in a font that resembles the text seen on stadium scoreboards. Both lines blink at a fast speed.

Variants:

  • An early variant has no space, making the text read "INFRONT".
  • On original NBC airings of Mad About You, the logo is inside of the split-screen credits. The logo is much smaller (with the background filling the entire frame) with the show's logo and "PRODUCED FOR NBC BY..." above and "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" below.
  • On the short-lived CBS sitcom Good Advice, the logo is slightly longer.
  • Conversely, the Mad About You episode "It's a Wrap" noticeably shortens the logo.

Technique: 2D computer animation. Depending on the refresh rate, this logo can look like a still logo at times.

Music/Sounds: The sound of a racing gate opening, accompanied by a bell ringing and sounds of horses running, followed by a P.A. voice that says "IN FRONT!".

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • NBC and ABC used a generic theme and voiceover.
  • On the Good Advice variant and on early episodes of Two Guys and a Girl, a slightly longer version of the horse running sounds are used.
  • On the "It's a Wrap" variant, the P.A. voice is cut as Paul describes the logos.

Availability: Seen on Mad About You. It was also seen on the sitcoms Good Advice and Two Guys and a Girl, which was known as Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place for its first two seasons.
