Vin Di Bona Productions Logo (1990)


Nicknames: "The Spinning Handwriting II", "The Spinning Signature II"

Logo: On a deep blue/black gradient background, the gold text "Vin Di Bona", in Vin's signature, spins around for a second. Then it unfolds itself. After this is done, a coral pink rounded rectangle with the text "PRODUCTIONS" (in white) on it zooms-in.


• On the 1995-1996 Showtime TV series Sherman Oaks, the logo is superimposed in the credits. The "PRODUCTIONS" oblong is now colored scarlet and looks slightly different, as well, and zooms up from the bottom of the screen (a la the 1987 logo) but at a much slower pace. (As a side note, this logo was the only logo on the program to feature its music.) 

• On the TV movie For the Love of Nancy, the logo is chromed in over a red-black gradient background, expect this time the "Vin di Bona" text spins around longer. The "PRODUCTIONS" oblong has the same design and animation from the Sherman Oaks variant as well. The byline "A VIN DI BONA COMPANY" appears below the "PRODUCTIONS" oblong, and the "Vin di Bona" text shines afterwards.

FX/SFX: The text spinning, the "PRODUCTIONS" graphic zooming in.

Cheesy Factor: Same as the 1st logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1st logo.

Music/Sounds Variant: Some 1990-1991 episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos and the TV movie For the Love of Nancy play their closing themes over the logo.

Availability: Not too hard to find. Last found on 1990-1997 episodes of America's Funniest Home Videos reran on Hallmark Channel. Also seen on AFV's spin-off, America's Funniest People, which ran from 1990-1994. A 1992 special called Storm the Castle (which aired on CBS, and was based on Japan's Takeshi's Castle) should have this logo as well.

Scare Factor: Medium to high for the music and zooming in effect of the text "PRODUCTIONS" (for those who are unfamiliar with it). Low to medium for the other variants.
