1st Logo

Logo: We see a screen with many blacked out words and sections, save for some spaces which are already colored light blue. Then various parts of the background are filled in with blues, oranges, and yellows until you have a psychedelic -like background. Then you can make out the words:

PRODUCTIONS (in 3D style)

All are in a weird font, and get filled in one by one in this order: Line 3 is colored pink, 1 red and blue, 2 a pinkish purple, 4 blue, and 5 pink and blue.

SFX: Things being filled in

Cheesy Factor: Things being filled in, also, the quality of the drawing

Music: Two sets of four ascending synthesized chimes, the second one is much faster. In the background are "glug-glug-glug" sounds. Is similar to the music used for the first Viacom logo ("V-ia-com")

Availability: Assumed to be intact on all Krofft shows

Scare Factor: Fast paced logo and weird music might get to some

2nd Logo
(1976-Early 1990s)

Logo: On a zooming space background, the shiny glass text


stacked upon each other turns 90 degrees to the right so it faces the screen.

SFX: The glass text turning, the zooming space background.

Cheesy Factor: Despite very obvious Chromakey effects (with the layered on video sparkle on the model) a very good shot on video logo for the mid-Seventies.

Music: A creepy amplified electric piano stinger.

Availability: Rare. Seen on late period Krofft shows like the 1991-1992 "Land of the Lost" remake (with the copyright info chyroned in below the logo, which also appeared to have been kinescoped on this version, as the logo originated on tape).

Scare Factor: The creepy music and the darkness will scare more than a few.
