Paramount Television (1967-2006)/Logo Variations

From Audiovisual Identity Database

'These are some of the logo variations seen throughout the years by the 1967-2006 incarnation of Paramount Television.

The New Odd Couple (1982-1983): Two variants of the 1975 Paramount Television logo are used on the show's blooper reel.

On the opening, it plays in silence. Shortly after this, a snarl sound is heard. As the sound continues, an iris takes up the inside of the logo, leaving only the stars, to reveal footage of someone (most likely either Bart Braverman or John Shuck) barking like a rabid dog.

For the closing, the ending "theme" of the reel plays over it and the logo explodes as soon as the theme is finished. The particles fall as a (hilariously obviously looped) man laughs.

Star Trek: The Next Generation (1987-1994): One blooper reel uses a variant of the 1987 75th Anniversary logo. The 75th Anniversary text fades out as the Desilu jingle plays, then Paramount and "A Gulf + Western Company" fade out as the Blue Mountain jingle plays, and the logo animates like the movie counterpart in reverse as something resembling the Jaws theme plays. It eventually cuts to an explosion.

The Busy World of Richard Scarry (1993-1997): The bylineless Paramount logo turns into an animated version of the mountain with the canyon scenery as seen in this show.

Later seasons use the Viacom byline.

Cheers: Last Call! (1993): The Paramount logo is inside a circle, which is superimposed in the credits.

Sister, Sister (1994-1999): On at least one episode, the 1926 "A Paramount Picture" logo is used, but in sepia-tone. This may be a myth; it is also unknown if it was as a joke in the episode (the most likely explanation) or replacing the actual Paramount TV logo.
