Production Logo

Film Roman's production logo appears at the end of several shows.


A blue background is shown, which quickly zooms out as a square. White stars draw out five yellow lines, two to the left, three to the right. This settles itself over a white background, and the text "A FILM", appears above the design, and "ROMAN PRODUCTION" appears below. "FILM" and "ROMAN" are in blue box-like shapes, and "A" and "PRODUCTION" are in thin fonts. Two yellow dots appear alongside the logo.


The logo was used from 1989-1998, and appears on Garfield and Friends, Bobby's World, Mighty Max, and Life with Louie, to name a few shows.


The music was two ding sounds coinciding with the dots.
