United Artists Televsion


What if UATV continued? real logos can be found Here

1st Logo
(1983-1987)
United Artists Television - CLG Wiki's Dream Logos!
Logo: Not much of a logo per se, but following the acquisition of UA-TV by MGM Television, most new UA-TV shows were
released with the MGM lion logo of the era (with an MGM/UA Entertainment Co. caption) with the word "TELEVISION" below. This is the same thing from the movie logo with one difference.

Variant: On Dr. No: The Series, "TELEVISION" is blue.

FX: None.


Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Usually preserved on United Artists shows of the era, although some UA-TV shows could be updated with newer MGM-TV or UATV logos on TV broadcasts.

Scare Factor: Low to medium; the MGM/UA logo could be high on the scary side for those who don't like roaring lions. Some could be startled by the very stark design of the logo itself.

2nd Logo
(1987-1994)
United Artists Television - CLG Wiki's Dream Logos!
Nickname: "UA Swoosh on TV"

Logo: Over a black BG, we see a minimum-sized blue crystalized UA zooming out. A streak of light glides by to slash the A,
consisted of spikes going across. When it gets to a certain distance, "United Artists Television" is seen underneath.


FX: Same as the movie logo.

Music/Sounds: An abridged version of the movie logo.


Availability: Still common on some broadcasts of UATV-produced shows, and can be seen on UATV-produced shows of the period. This logo was often paired off with the popular MGM/UA Communications Television logo, and both logos are thus regarded as favorites.

Scare Factor: Low.

3rd Logo
(1994-2000)
United Artists Television - CLG Wiki's Dream Logos!
Nickname: "UA TV Shining Light"

Logo: We see the glittering stars gliding over the screen to reveal the words "United Artists", then one big star shines against the U, a la the Torch Lady's torch shining.

Variants:


  • The byline below appears as "Television" for the first few years. It was later referred to as "Television, Inc." starting in 1997.
  • A B&W version is used on some current prints of classic UATV shows.

FX: Same as the movie logo.

Music/Sounds: An abridged version of the movie logo.

Availability: Common. The current logo, or at least the most recent, as the UA website features a new variation of Logo 4, while this still appears on UATV shows. This logo chiefly updates the Transamerica UATV logos.

Scare Factor: None.



4th Logo
(2000-2001)
United Artists Television - CLG Wiki's Dream Logos!
Nickname: "UA TV 2000"

Logo: On a black screen, we see a new UA logo, that looks similar to the 1982 and 1987 logos, except the logo is a little narrower and there are no streaks. The words UNITED ARTISTS TELEVISION come from both sides of the lower part of the screen and converge. The words "AN MGM COMPANY" soon fade in afterwards where we later see a shining wipe effect on the UA logo. Also, There is also a URL for www.unitedartists.com underneath the company byline.

FX: Same as the movie logo.

Music/Sounds: An abriged version of the movie logo. However, it sometimes uses the 1994 music.

Availability: Can be seen on 2000-2001 UATV shows (UATV is now an art-house television studio for MGM).

Scare Factor: None.


6th Logo
(2001- )
United Artists Television - CLG Wiki's Dream Logos!
Nicknames: "UA TV Swoosh 2001", "UA TV Spikes 2000", "Silver Spikes on TV"

Logo: Same as the previous logo, but this includes a metallic version of the UA Swoosh logo from 1987. There is also a URL for www.unitedartists.com underneath the company byline.

Variants:


  • This logo also appears preceded by the current MGM TV lion on some new prints of older UATV shows.
  • In an unusual variation that is likely an editing foul-up, one episode of James Bond: The Series accompanies this logo with the abridged theme music of Pathé, which had European distribution rights to James Bond: The Series. This actually suits the logo well.
  • Since Sony took a stake in MGM, the logo is bylineless.

FX: Same as the movie logo.


Music/Sounds: Same as above. However, it sometimes uses the 1994 music.


Availability: Common. Seen on some new and recent shows released by UATV. It may also show up on a few DVD releases of classic shows. This logo may also replace old logos such as the one used during the Transamerica years.


Scare Factor: None.
