In 1980-2003, It was called "United Media Productions".
1st Logo (1980-1985)Edit
===Nickname: "Red, White, and u!"
Logo: On a white BG, we see a half red, half blue square with a lowercase "u" cote-out of it. "United Media Productions" in red, is displayed below, along with=== the byline "A Scripps-Howard Company" below it in blue.
Music/Sounds: Just the end theme of the show.
Availability: Seen on Garfield in the Rough.
Scare Factor: None. This is nothing scary, compared to the next logo...
===Nicknames: "The Lighthouse", "The Scripps-Howard Lighthouse", "The Haunted Lighthouse"
Logo: On a blue background, we see a large white line draw itself across the screen at the bottom. As the line ends, we start to zoom out as lines go upward to form something that resembles the Washington Monument. As we zoom out, we see that the blue background is a square on a silver, blue, or black background that has the words "SCRIPPS HOWARD" in the company's then-corporate typeface, Glypha, repeating over and over again. The top of the lighthouse then fills in and sends lines out in three directions (top diagonal, middle horizontal, downward diagonal) on both sides and make it resemble a stylized drawing of a lighthouse shining it's light. As a matter of fact, it's the famous Scripps-Howard lighthouse, the logo of Scripps-Howard, who owned United Media at the time. The finished logo finishes zooming out to show the words "UNITED MEDIA PRODUCTIONS", in all caps, and the same typeface as the Scripps Howard logo, underneath.
FX/SFX: The lighthouse forming and the zoom-out...
Cheesy Factor: ...which really doesn't hold up that well.
Music/Sounds: A somewhat dark four-note synth tune. May also be silent or have the end theme playing over it.
Availability: Seen (with music) on Garfield's Halloween Adventure (a.k.a. Garfiend in Disguise),and (w/o music) on Garfield Goes Hollywood and some Garfield specials. It is retained whenever shown and on all VHS and DVD releases.
Scare Factor: Medium; the cheap animation and dark synth tune may put a few off.===
