Vin De Bona Productions
Compiled by John Montagnino and Cameron McCaffrey
1st Logo (1987-1995) Nickname: "The Spinning Handwriting" Logo: On a blue background, the text "Vin di Bona", in Vin di Bona's Handwriting in gold, spins around for a second. Then it extends out to reveal the text "Vin Di Bona". After this is done a pink rounded rectangle with the text "PRODUCTIONS" in it zooms in. FX: The text spinning, The PRODUCTIONS graphic zooming in.
Cheesy Factor: Early CGI Music: A creepy synth tune that tries to sound "happy." Availability: Not too hard to find. Can currently be found on reruns of 1990-1996 episodes of "America's Funniest Home Videos" on PAX and "America's Funniest People" on TBS.
Scare Factor: Median to high, the creepy synth music and dated CGI will scare more than a few.
2nd Logo (1995-)
Nickname: "The Spinning Handwritng 2" Logo: Basically a slow version of Logo 1, except the background is now a curtain, and the word "Productions" is moved next to the Vin Di Bona text, and animates similar to the script. FX: Same as Logo 1, except the spinning handwriting is slower, and "Productions" extends out along with the Vin Di Bona Text. Music: Same as Logo 1 Availability: Seen on AFV with Tom Bergeron on ABC, as well as reruns of AFHV with Bob Saget in syndication and on ABC Family. Scare Factor: Same as Logo 1
