Background: Carolco Television Productions was the television production division of Carolco Pictures.
(April 14-December 18, 1986)
Nickname: "Flashing C"
Logo: Same as the 1986 movie logo, but sped-up.
FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: Same as the 1986 logo.
Music/Sounds: The same orchestrated piece from the 1985 logo.
Availability: Rare. Seen on Rambo: The Force of Freedom.
Scare Factor: Low.
Nicknames: "Laser Light", "The Laser Light C"
Logo: We see the original 1988 logo formed, shining and zooming out as usual. Once completed, the words "TELEVISION PRODUCTIONS" fade under the logo.
- On Shattered Dreams (no relation to the Johnny Hates Jazz song of the same name; Also on VHS and Amazon Video prints), we see a screen reading "A ROGER GIMBLE PRODUCTION FOR" in the same font as the company name, then it fades to this logo. Also, the "TELEVISION PRODUCTIONS" is fully centered.
- On the first season of The $100,000 Pyramid with John Davidson, there is an in-credit text that reads:
In Association With
- Another version just has "Television" below.
FX/SFX: The logo forming and letters appearing.
Cheesy Factor: The "TELEVISION PRODUCTIONS" lettering seems chroma-keyed and slightly off-center.
Music/Sounds: The last part of the Carolco Pictures fanfare or the closing theme ending over it.
Availability: Ultra rare for the animated logo, as it was seen on the Turner prints of the TV Movie Chernobyl: Final Warning on VHS. Don't expect to see this on Dangerous Passion and Two-Fisted Tales; instead, the beginning of both films use Carolco's 1988 theatrical logo. The version with "Carolco Television" is extinct and was seen at the end of Maid to Order, released by The Vista Organization, on an old Encore Love airing; Carolco purchased the New Century Vista catalog in 1993.
Scare Factor: None.
