Background: Argosy Media is an American production and distribution company founded in 1953, though it dates back to a magazine first published in 1882. It distributes prints of TV shows from the now-defunct Grandma Studios, and also distributes prints from various movie companies throughout the country. As early as 1958, it has started making their own Television movies and television shows. During the 1980s And The 1990s, a limited number of Orion movies listed Argosy Media Home Video as their distributor. Argosy Media also distributed ITC shows and some shows produced by BBC, Oval Productions, and Sony as well. From 2009 through April 21, 2010, and from early 2012 to the present, most releases from Argosy Media were distributed by Blake Television.

In 1982, cartoonist Ellen Peck created the famous cat that Argosy used throughout the '80s, the '90s, half of the 2000s and late 2007 to the present day, and served as a mascot officially in 1989. Ellen Peck named the cat Aaron by the time the cat was created. Aaron (in the logos) was voiced by Ellen Peck in pre-2000, then Lewis Jones in 2000-2007, and from late 2007 to the present, he is voiced by Rick Buckley. Anyway, on August 30, 2009, the Peck estate bought The [[Argosy Entertainment Company]] and its subsidiaries from Corus Entertainment for $75,000,000.

The various Argosy cat characters are the basis for several films and syndicated TV shows.

This company was founded in March 26, 1953, and the stylized "A" had been Argosy Media's official off-screen logo since 1973, though seen on-screen in logos 1, 10, 11, 12, and 14.

On March 26, 2013, Argosy Media celebrated its 60th anniversary with a new logo. Also in 2013, Argosy Media purchased the Post-1983 Videomagic library.
