Stephen J. Cannell Productions
Nicknamed "The Angry Typewriter Man is a logo where a man, Stephen J. Cannell, is typing on his typewriter surrounded by a room full of awards until he throws his written paper into the air. It suddenly turns animated onto an animated stack of papers and it forms a "C" while the text of the company is shown above.

Additional InfoEdit

It might be good to know that Cannell died in 2010 of melanoma, a change of color to the skin. Early additions had Cannell smoking a pipe while typing on the typewriter; which later became discontinued as Cannell no longer smoked his pipe in 1984.
