I constantly see posts asking about who owns shows so I will post this for the edification of our readers: Universal is the easiest as they have not really bought out any other studios. If a show has a Universal tag or Revue tag, its theirs. Fox owns their own library plus the MTM library, Four Star library, Metromedia Producers Corp. library. Columbia owns all of their own shows including the many great comedies from the 50s thru the 70s they produced under the Screen Gems banner. Now here's where it gets tricky. MGM and UA had merged in the early 80s. Turner then bought the MGM portion of the company. UA spun off on its own, calling itself MGM. All of the UA shows went to MGM, all of the MGM shows went to Turner. The only exception was a trade made. MGM traded Gilligan's Island to Turner in exchange for Fame. Turner was then gobbled up by Warner Brothers. So if you see or remember seeing a show with the MGM lion on it, its owned by WB. This of course doesn't apply to shows from the last 10-15 years but to older shows like UNCLE, Tarzan, Daktari, Dr. Kildare, etc. MGM owns UA shows, including the Ziv library of syndicated shows from the 50s-early 60s. MGM also owns Orion which had been Filmways, hence their release of Green Acres and Mr. Ed. But even here there are some exceptions. Petticoat Junction, which was a Filmways produced show went to Viacom. Warner Brothers owns all of the WB shows as well as the old MGM shows from the 50s-early 80s. Paramount is the biggest. Republic (formerly NTA) was spun of from NBC films. The owned NBC shows such as Bonanza, Get Smart, etc. Republic was bought by Worldvision which owned all of the ABC shows. Worldvision was bought by Spelling Entertainment. Viacom (all of the CBS shows) bought Spelling and Paramount and folded all of their holdings under the Paramount banner. This is good for them but not good for us. They just own too much. The only major independent left is SFM. They own things like the Danny Thomas library, some variety shows like Flip Wilson and Laugh-In and have rights to a lot of other shows that have fallen through the cracks. Oh, also I.C.E. owns the Official Films catalogue of many 50s shows. Any questions?
