UPDATED 8/26/2005 Is anyone else bothered by the replacement or removal of original logos on television shows? I am, and for many reasons. —It constitutes an unnecessary alteration. The logos were part of the shows as they originally were intended. —It creates an anachronism. A 21st century logo on a 1960s or 1970s series is as ridiculous as putting the Pathé rooster on a current film. —Newer logos, especially CGI ones, just plain seem out of place on the older shows. —For nostalgia alone, a lot of the older logos have that appeal. As for where the studios stand (year indicates first use of logo): Warner Bros.: Removed: —Black Bart: (unaired pilot on DVD with "Blazing Saddles"): Warner Bros Television '72 —Dallas: Lorimar '72 and '78 (on all but two S3 episodes) —Kung Fu: Warner Bros. Television '72 —Roots: Warner Bros Television '72 —Thorn Birds: WBTV '72 —Wonder Woman: WBTV '72 Retained —North and South (all 3 parts): WBTV '84 —Scooby Doo, Where Are You?: Hanna Barbera '68 Columbia TriStar (Sony): Removed: —Beulah Land (miniseries): Columbia Pictures Television '76 —Bewitched: Screen Gems '63 —Married With Children (season 1 and part of season 2): Embassy Communications '86; (much of season 2 and season 3): Columbia Pictures TV '87 —The Nanny: TriStar Television '92 —The Partridge Family: Screen Gems '65 (not necessarily removed, but suppressed by "bridging", more to come) Retained: —227: Embassy Television '83 —The Blue and the Gray (miniseries): Columbia Pictures Television '82 —Brian's Song (original TV movie): Screen Gems '65 —Married with Children: (Outrageous Episodes): Columbia Pictures TV '87, Embassy Communications '86 —QB VII (miniseries): Screen Gems '65 Paramount: Removed: —Cheers: Paramount Television '75 —Laverne & Shirley: Paramount Television '75 Retained: —The Brady Bunch: Paramount Television '69 —I Love Lucy: Desilu (in-credit animation) —Star Trek: TOS: Desilu '66 (albeit plastered with 1978 copyright notice) Fox: Removed: —M*A*S*H: 20th Century Fox TV '61 —The Simpsons (seasons 1-3): 20th Century Fox TV '80s (except on a handful of episodes) Retained: —The Bob Newhart Show: MTM Productions '70 —Family Guy: 20th Century Fox TV '97 —Futurama: custom 30th Century Fox TV —[i[Garfield and Friends[/i] (first 13 episodes on V.1): Film Roman '80s; (all episodes after that): Film Roman '89 —King of the Hill (season 1): 20th TV '92; (season 2): 20th Century Fox TV '97 —The Mary Tyler Moore Show: MTM Productions '70 —The Simpsons (seasons 4-5): 20th TV '92 MGM: Retained: —Green Acres: Filmways —Outer Limits: United Artists TV '62 Disney/Buena Vista/Touchstone: Retained: —The Golden Girls: Touchstone TV '85 Universal: Removed: —Columbo (season 2): Universal '71 —Kojak: Universal '71 —Magnum, PI (Season 2): Universal '75 —Murder She Wrote: Universal '75 —Quantum Leap (Season 2): Universal '75 Retained: —Baretta: Universal '74 —Columbo (season 1): Universal '71 —Law and Order (Season 1): Universal '75 —Magnum, PI (Season 1): Universal '75 —Quantum Leap (Season 1): Universal '75 Shout! Factory Retained: —Punky Brewster: NBC Productions '84 Many of these logos removed are from companies that no longer exist. I don't see why that is necessary. Is it too much to put the current logo after the old one? While it has never been a deal breaker for me, it has been a disappointment. Please help me add to this list, and for a description of many logos, this site is helpful: http://members.fortunecity.com/teamfx2000/ BTW, I only count logos from the original run. Many shows didn't have logos on the original run to begin with (the old Wonderful World of Disney, Norman Lear shows).
