I DIG OLD TV LOGOS PT. 1

Behold the ‘Screen Gems’ logo that proceeded (and ante-ceded) all Three Stooges shorts and many other programs of my youth, chief among them ‘The Flinstones’. The above version is the ‘old’ Screen Gems theme and icon, a simple rehash of the Columbia Pictures torch lady. I watched this logo this morning and instantly reverted to my nine year old self, sitting in front of our black and white Zenith television at 5PM, munching donuts and slurping milk in anticipation of my 6PM dinner. By the way, for more on my childhood (and adulthood) obsession with the Three Stooges dig my podcast episode of a few months ago ‘My Life As A Stooge’. All you have to do is go to the top of this page…find the little tab called ‘podcast’…give it a click…scroll around…you get it I think.
