Quincy Jones Entertainment
This is the production company of Quincy Jones.
(September 10, 1990-September 27, 1993)
Logo: On a space background, we see a rhinoceros gray statue of what appears to be an alien. Now to the animation: the camera pans backwards to see that the statue is in a picture frame, and "QUINCY JONES ENTERTAINMENT" (in blue) appears (the "Q" in a strange design), and zooms back to place itself under the picture frame and the statue. "in association with" (also in blue) appears below.
Trivia: The statue seen in this logo, which is that of a West African fertility god, first appeared on the cover of Quincy Jones' 1981 album The Dude (still in print on CD from A&M Records) The lettering seen here is adapted from the Quincy Jones Productions logo, which often appeared on his many musical productions (most notably on Michael Jackson's 1979-87 recordings and his own Qwest record label, whose logo was another adaptation of the QJP logo) starting in 1976.
Technique: CGI produced at Synthespian Studios by Jeff Kleiser and Diana Walczak. This logo was created in Wavefront Advanced Visualizer on a Silicon Graphics Personal Iris 4D/70.
Music/Sounds: The end of the show's closing theme. One episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has a 3-note "outer space" tune.
Availability: Uncommon. Seen on The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air episodes from the era on HBO Max.
