Stephen J. Cannell Productions
Nicknamed "The Angry Typewriter Man" is a logo where a man, Stephen J. Cannell, is typing on his IBM Selectra typewriter, surrounded by a room full of awards. The camera then pans clockwise from his face to his back. Once, the camera is towards Cannell's back. He throws the paper. He is typing on over his head. The paper becomes animated on a black background, and floats downwards towards a stack of animated papers below. The paper scoops up the top papers in the stack and 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 was later dropped, when Cannell no longer smoked his pipe in 1984.
