Background

This is the production company of the late David Angell, Peter Casey, and David Lee.

(April 19, 1990-May 13, 2004)

Nickname: "The Letterblocks"

Logo: On a green messy marble background, we see a green plaque with a yellow border that contains blue blocks with the words "GRUB♦STREET" (in a font resembling Copperplate Gothic), which are each separated by the bars of the border. The "G" and the last "T", as well as their blocks, are much bigger than the rest of the letters and blocks. Under it is "P R O D U C T I O N S" (in Futura), spaced to fit the width of the logo. Below the logo is the words "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" (in Bauhaus Thin). A spotlight shines from left to right on the logo and the surrounding area.

Variants:

  • Until January 1992, the logo was still.
  • On the pilot of Wings, the "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text is in the same font as "PRODUCTIONS".
  • On the Frasier episode "Space Quest", the "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text is omitted.
  • The logo would come in either the standard 4:3 version (seen on full-screen prints) or the widescreen 16:9 version.
  • In 2002, the logo was graphically enhanced by having cleaner letters and a new marble background that is darker and much less messy-looking. This can be seen on the last two seasons of Frasier.
  • On original NBC airings of Fraiser and Wings, a modified version of the logo is inside of the split-screen credits. The logo is much smaller (with the background filling the entire frame) with the show's logo and "PRODUCED FOR NBC BY..." above and "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" below.

FX/SFX: Originally none, but starting in January 1992 (which also coincided with Wings ' opening title change), the logo shines.

Music/Sounds: No music of its own, but on the first season of Frasier and pre-1994 episodes of Wings, the end theme finishes over it. NBC used generic music on both shows beginning in 1994.

Availability: Uncommon. Currently seen on Frasier on Lifetime, Hallmark and COZI TV since 2017 and Wings on USA and Antenna TV since 2017. Both shows are available on DVD.

Editors Note: None.
