1st Logo (September 29, 1959-July 5, 1960)

Logo: We would see several weird objects including a stick, a weird bow tie with stars and finally, another weird bow tie with stars, with the text "A MARTIN MANULIS PRODUCTION" under it, on a black background.

Variant: On the first two seasons of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis and Adventures in Paradise, the logo fades to the 20th Century Fox Television "Starry Sky" logo of the era after a second.

Technique: Nothing superimposed, but the weird objects and the text both fading in.

Music/Sounds: The opening or closing theme of the show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on S1 episodes of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, so it's an easy find, as well on Adventures in Paradise.

2nd Logo (September 27, 1960-June 27, 1961)

Logo: On a cloudy background, we see the text "A MARTIN MANULIS PRODUCTION"

Technique: None. It's a let down from the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the program.

Availability: Seen on later episodes of The Many Loves of Dobie Gills.
