1st Logo

(1998-2004)

Logo: On a boxed golden orange and light blue background, we see a white ovaid globe a la the Filmways logo in the center with the classic TV Land logo inside (which looks similar to the familiar logo, but with sharper points and not neatly arranged squares). PRODUCTIONS is below that as well as a copyright stamp.

Variant:

  • On All's Well and The Gaveltons, the logo is in B&W.
  • On ALF's Hit Talk Show, the little specs around the logo flicker.FX/SFX: None except for the ALF's Hit Talk Show variant.

Music/Sounds: A man saying "This has been a TV Land production" with a space-ey 70's-style keyboard sound in the background. The B&W variant has no sound in the background, thoug h. ALF's Hit Talk Show used the end theme with no announcer.

Availability: Extinct, seen at the end of TV Land's old 60-Second Sitcom segments All's Well, Spin & Cutter and The Gaveltons. Also seen on Malcolm's Ulitimate Fan Hour. Surprisingly seen at the end of The Brady Bunch's 35th Anniversary Reunion, which had the 4th logo at the beginning.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

(2010)

Logo: On a white background, we see the stylized blue outline "PRIME" unfold itself. We quickly zoom out as it finishes unfolding, as the TV Land logo of the time (which features the stylized square from before, but without any of the squares inside) appear near a line next to it. The word "PRIME" appears in a wallpaper design on the background, and "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION", in black, appears below. A copyright stamp appears below the logo during its formation.

FX/SFX: The logo unfolding.

Music/Sounds: A shining sound effect.

Availability: Was seen on the first season of Hot in Cleveland.

Editor's Note: None.

3rd Logo

(2011-2012)

Logo: On a stylized dark blue backgrund, we see a glimpse of the stacked text "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION", which appears near a flowing blue cloth. We cut to the full text zooming out, appearing next to the TV Land logo of the time in black-and-white, and a copyright stamp appears below.

FX/SFX: The text slowly moving, the logo zooming out.

Music/Sounds: A short 6-note rock theme.

Availability: Seen on Happily Divorced, the first season of The Exes and the second season of Hot in Cleveland. However, it's replaced by next logos on original airings.

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo

(2004, 2011-2012)

Logo: On a green background, we see the color-changing layers flip to the left like a book, until they form a rough blue box with "TV LAND" logo inside, and "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" sliding to the right side.

FX/SFX: TBA.

Music/Sounds: TBA. On The Brady Bunch's 35th Anniversary Reunion, a relaxing tune accompanied by announcer saying "And now, an Original TV Land Presentation.".

Availability: Seen on the third season of Hot in Cleveland and Happily Divorced, but it's heavily reduced in favor of the announcers and can hardly be viewed.

Editor's Note: None.

5th Logo

(2012-2015)

Logo: On a marine background, the blue "TV" word zooms in, partially taken into a rough blue box. The box claps and becomes an outline. Then the view switches to the name "TVland" in bright marine colors, with TV surrounded by he same box, and "ORIGINAL PRODUCTION" slide to the right and stop close, written in two lines.

FX/SFX: TBA.

Music/Sounds: A short rock tune that ends in a weird whistle.

Availability: Seen on the last 3 seasons of Hot in Cleveland and The Exes, but again, it's heavily reduced on air. Also appeared on Soul Man and the first 6 episodes of Younger.

Editor's Note: None.

6th Logo

(May 5, 2015-)

Logo: On a white background, a dark blue parallelogramis in the center of the screen. It then becomes a weird looking shape that resembles a 3D look of two squares with one overlapping the other, which it then transform into the current TV Land logo (which consists of "TV LAND" in white on a strange shape) with two lines that resemble markings from a permanent marker. The TV Land logo and the markings move around the screen in various shots including the TV Land logo being zoomed in with a circle made from a sharpie maker. As the TV Land logo zooms out, two arrows appear in the bottom left and top right corner from the logo, causing the words "ORIGINAL" and "PRODUCTION" zoom out and be at the top and bottom of the TV Land logo respectivelyalso in permanent marker. A copyright notice fades in below.

FX/SFX: The position of the logo, and the drawings.

Cheesy Factor: The whole logo has a grungy style that's very ugly.

Music/Sounds: A grungy beat-box remix tune.

Availability: Seen on Impastor, Teachers, later episodes of Younger, and The Jim Gaffigan Show, among others.
