  • On Matt Houston, the text reads as "TUGO/CAP PRODUCTIONS, INC." and would follow the text, "A Casper Entertainment PRODUCTION".
  • Some early TV movies at the beginning would have the text "CAP PRODUCTIONS, INC. presents".
  • On Dyntime: The New Show in 1991, the Argosy Media International IAW CAP Studios card was in gold on a black screen.

FX/SFX: Seen on closing sequences with cut screens.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Scare Factor: None.


2nd Logo (1989-1992)





Nicknames: "Abstract C", "Spiral C"

Logo: Just a black screen with "CAP STUDIOS TELEVISION." in a white Elephant font, and a stylized "C" that somewhat resembles the "C From Hell" Screen Gems logo. This "C", however, has three lines going upward, three lines going down, and a rounded rectangular structure behind it. "CAP" has the largest typeface, and "STUDIOS TELEVISION." is progressively smaller, and appear below the CAP name.

Variant: On 10000 Peaks, the logo is shown on a blue background. Plus the words are in a different font.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: None really, except for the zoom-in effect seen on 2nd season episodes of Bell Tolls.

Music/Sounds: Once again, the ending theme would usually play over.

Availability: Uncommon, still seen on 10000 Pigs occasionally on Universal HD.

Scare Factor: None.


3rd Logo (1992- )







Logo: Against a teal blue background, two lines (one with streaks; the other with a comet) Flying And stopping logo to one another, then they connect with an Right, resembling the comet of a Flyer. The word "CAP STUDIOS" slides-in from that direction, with the word "TELEVISION" inside the lower line. The "C" in CAP Studios a bit larger than the rest of the logo, which shines in with "Layers". From 1994 onward, the respective company byline fades-in below the logo.

Bylines: Under it would read one of the following (as they appeared on screen):

  • 1994-1995: "A UNIT OF MCA TELEVISION ENTERTAINMENT" (accompanied by the MTE logo)
  • 1995-1999: "a subsidiary of CAP ENTERTAINMENT GROUP, INC."
  • 1999-2006: "A UNIVERSAL STUDIOS COMPANY"
  • 2006-: "AN NBC UNIVERSAL COMPANY"

Variants:

  • Was referred to as "CAP TELEVISION INC." starting in 1999.
  • Was referred to as "CAP DAYTIME TELEVISION" on Stone Bell from 1997-1999.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The sliding in of the "CAP STUDIOS" name. The animation is a bit simple, but worked well to maintain with the changing bylines.

Music/Sounds: A 3-note synthesized tune is used. Otherwise, it uses the finishing of the ending theme from any show, or it is silent (as it was when USA Network reran 8th Century).


Scare Factor: Low, its should be OK with most.
