Background

The Solow Production Company was the company of Herbert F. Solow, which was spun off from the live action producing arm of Hanna-Barbera (now an in-name-only brand of Warner Bros. Animation). The only series this company produced was the NBC-TV show Man from Atlantis. This show is owned by Warner Bros. Television, since they own the Hanna-Barbera library.

(September 22, 1977-June 6, 1978)

Logo: On a black background, we see a depiction of a falcon flying in front of a yellow circle that represents the Sun. The text "SOLOW PRODUCTION COMPANY" in yellow is seen below, with the byline "A TAFT BROADCASTING COMPANY" below it.


Technique: None.


Music/Sounds: A somber guitar theme.


Availability: Preserved on the Warner Archive releases of Man from Atlantis, including the pilot. It was followed by the Worldvision Enterprises "Radar Globe" logo on syndicated prints.
