AB Productions (France)

From CLG Wiki

Background: This was a production company and distributor owned by the AB Groupe. The company was generally focused on the production of children's cartoons, music, and other properties, including those produced by fellow French company Créativité & Développement.

(Late 1980s?-1999?)

Logo: On a space background, we see the shiny, abstract text "AB" zoom out. "A" is in red and a stylized appearance resembling the Airwalk logo, while "B" is in blue and without any holes in it. After it zooms out to a comfortable spot, the silver text "PRODUCTIONS" zooms out underneath "AB", leaving out long trails before settling. The logo shines.

Variants:

  • A still version exists where the finished product is seen on a black background.
  • Later releases have "DISTRIBUTION" instead of "PRODUCTIONS", which fades below the AB logo instead of zooming out. Also the logo shines a bit more.

FX/SFX: The parts of the logo zooming out and shining

Music/Sounds: A rhythmic synth tune with horns. The still version cut off the music after the first part.

Availability: Very rare. This was likely seen on the British dub of Dragon Ball Z and other cartoons and anime the company distributed or dubbed. The variant can be seen on the 1990s version of Littlest Pet Shop, which was released on VHS by Family Home Entertainment, as well as season 2 of Conan the Adventurer and the short-lived Happy Ness: Secret of the Loch.
