Hi! I am back with some more finds. This is the last of 2020 from me, but oh boy, I am ready for 2021. Anyways, let's get into the findings. Note: Keep in mind, I have changed the format of my month's findings to make it hopefully shorter. It will be similiar, though.

Photos of some of the finds (Includes some finds from the past!)

Videos of the finds

Phoof. That was all of the finds.. Except from one from the AVTB archives. You can take a look from here.

Well, that's it. Thanks for reading this not so small reply. Again, I am hoping an even better 2021 for the logo community and logo hunting in general. And expect more of those photo uploads of past findings. Anyways, merry (late) Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Apparently, it wasn't my last time. I found three more rare findings.

The photos are glitching for some reason, but in the pages, they should appear as normal. :) Anyways, happy new year folks.

So i found these 2 Gaumont British logos from a 1940s film called High Flyers (Excerpts from the feature film production Flying High, not the 1980s film.)

For the past few months, Eric Newave and Eric Pepsi9072 on YouTube have been getting very unusual captures from CTV's on-demand channel CTV Throwback. Most of the shows are sourced from the Sony library, and they tend to be short-lived ones that were very unlikely to have been sold in syndication in the past. All of them have pre-2002 Columbia Pictures TV and Columbia TriStar TV logos, on occasion plastering older logos. In many cases, some shows had different logos from different time periods scattered throughout different episodes.

For instance, here are some logos from the end of Partners in Crime, a short lived 1984-1985 series starring Lynda Carter and Loni Anderson. Some episodes end with the 1988 CPT logo...

While others end with the short-lived Columbia TriStar TV logo from the mid-90s.

Now I'm not discrediting the two Erics; they're very trustworthy. It just seems weird that the people at CTV Throwback or Sony would scrounge around for different masters, some from the late-80s, and others from the mid-90s, of a show from the mid-80s that didn't produce enough episodes for syndication. And if Sony found those masters, it seems unlike themselves that they didn't slap the Sony Pictures Television logo at the end of the episodes like they usually do. I guess the truth is stranger than fiction.

I'm not sure if the Erics are getting these captures through a third-party or are doing it themselves (they tend to upload the same videos of these captures), but whoever is doing these CTV Throwback captures, keep up the good work!
