Revue Studios

1st logo (1964 - 1991)
Nickname: "The Zooming Globe"

Logo: On a space background, we see the logo of Universal Pictures zooming in slowly from screen left featuring the
usual Revue negatives.The negatives with "r", "v", and "e" are in blue and "e" and "u" are in red. The usual text saying "Fimed in Hollywood at Revue Studios" with the byline "MCA-TV Exclusive Distributor" alongside the MCA union globe bug.

Variant: Later years, it's the same animation of the 2nd Universal Television logo, minus the "FILMED AT THE STUDIOS OF UNIVERSAL CITY" text fading in. Just the Revue logo fading in instead.

FX/SFX: The globe zooming in and rotating.

Music/Sounds: Same as Universal Television zooming globe #1 in 1964.

Availability: Was seen on color reruns of Leave it to Beaver on TV Land from 1961-1963.

Scare Factor: Low, depends on what you think of the theme.

2nd logo (1991-2011)

Nickname:"Return of the Revue Camera"

Logo:Same as the 1951 Revue logo, but in color. This uses a newer TV camera. Also, the text "A REVUE PRODUCTION" is replace by the text "A REVUE STUDIOS PRODUCTION".

Music/Sounds:A synthesizedversion of the 1951 logo's music.

Availibility: Uncommon. Seen on later prints of Revue shows.

Scare Factor:Medium to high. The camera zoom in can give someone the shakes, but it's good to have the classic 1951 logo again!

3rd logo (2011-)

Nickname: "The Montage of the Revue Logos"

Logo: We see a montage of all the Revue logos throughout the years. Then we see the text "Revue Productions" in yellow and green.

FX: The montage, the flashing.

Music/Sounds: A acoustic guitar playing,then a8 note violin jingle (G,A,B,C,B,A#,G,G) plays while bells chime. On the last three notes, the music slows down.

Availability: Common. Seen on later prints of Revue shows, plastering the previous logo.

Scare Factor: None to low.
