2nd Logo (Late 1960s-Early 1970s)

History: Appeared on most ABC network programs that were in syndication at the time, as well as the Harveytoon and "Beany & Cecil" cartoon collections.

Logo: On a blue background, accompanied by a steady xylophone rhythm, the words "Distributed by" in a brush font is drawn on the screen. The xylophone is gradually increased with the words "ABC FILMS" in a news style font fades into view. Finally, the standard ABC circle logo appears to the left of the "ABC FILMS" to the accompanyment of a string "stinger" at the end.

FX: The drawn text; fading company name.

Music: The xylophone/string composition.
