Sternin & Fraser Ink, Inc. was the production company of husband-and-wife developer duo, Robert Sternin and Prudence Fraser.

(March 20, 1987-June 23, 1999)

Logo: On a black background, there's a white inkwell with a huge feather (also known as a "quill") right next to it. Above, the words "Sternin & Fraser Ink, Inc." appear in a white script font. Below the inkwell and quill is "in association with".


  • A variant of the black background exists of the text and logo having shadows.
  • This logo came back in 1989 with the logo on a dark blue background.
  • In 1990, the background color changed to a blue-black gradient.
  • When Highschool Sweethearts took over part of the duties for The Nanny in 1995, the words "in association with" were eliminated.

Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: An Irish-sounding tune, concluding in two short keyboard notes. The tune was rearranged in 1990. Some TV shows featured only the last few notes. CBS airings starting in 1994, used that network's generic music. The tune was sped-up beginning with season 3 of The Nanny.

Availability: Uncommon. This was first seen on the short-lived sitcom The Charmings, the short-lived series Live-In and Married People. It can be seen on every episode of The Nanny.
