Amity Entertainment

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Amity Entertainment was a film and television production and distribution company. It was founded on 2005 in Brentwood, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville, as well as an office in New York City. Its focus was on acquiring motion pictures and children's series. They acquired Tadpole Entertainment, and therefore the US rights to The Big Comfy Couch, shortly after their formation and worked on the final season of The Big Comfy Couch, before filing for bankruptcy on October 13, 2009. Their library eventually was bought up by Image Entertainment on May 4, 2012.

Logo (2005-February 2007)

Visuals: On a black background, a mass of blue lines rotate in, partially transparent, as several rounded corner white squares appear near the middle of the screen. Eventually, the lines become solid and compress into the word "Amity" in a semi-script font and a arc curved upwards, and the white squares flash into the light yellow text "ENTERTAINMENT" one-by-one.

Technique: 2D computer animation.

Audio: A whooshing sound, then a chiming synth tune.

Availability: Seen on season 7 episodes of The Big Comfy Couch, as well as all reruns until they stopped in 2009 on PBS. It's intact on DVD releases from that time as well. Also seen on the Essential Ernest DVDs.
