The Stories Behind TV Production Company Closing Logos

Closing credits to a TV show often end with the production company’s animated logo, which are becoming more and more like little works of art in themselves. We remember them better than the show we just watched -mainly because of repetition, but we don’t mind repetition when they are so short. For example, Bad Hat Harry productions.

Made famous by: Movies, mainly, but TV-wise, was used in House.

Slogan: “That’s some bad hat, Harry.”

What’s the story? This animated closing logo is another movie homage, this one to a Steven Spielberg classic. It’s a line from Jaws, spoken by Roy Scheider’s character to a local man in a delightfully askew swimming cap, as comeback for ribbing Brody about never going in the water. Here’s the original movie clip, for reference.

I would have never caught that, even though I’ve seen Jaws a few times. Den of Geek runs down the origins of 15 of these animated logos, going back to the 1980s.
