1st Logo (September 2, 1990-May 17, 1992)

Visuals: On a gray gradient background, a blue line starts at the top middle of the screen, moves left, and curves down to the middle to make a stylized "C", it stays in the middle briefly and then, when it gets to the right side of the screen, it curves back up to the top middle, where it stays for a split second before turning downward and going through the earlier line, making a stylized "CP" design. "C L Y D E P H I L L I P S" appears on top and "P R O D U C T I O N S" appears on the bottom, both in the blue color of the stylized "CP", and after a couple of seconds, "in association with" fades-in below in white. This logo stays on screen throughout.

Trivia: "Mr. Phillips" apparently refers to Clyde Phillips, whose name appears on this vanity card.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: The last bars of the closing theme of Parker Lewis Can't Lose play in sync with Parker (Corin Nemec) saying "Mr. Lewis? Mr. Randall? Mr. Phillips? HELLO!!".

Availability: Seen on the first two seasons of Parker Lewis Can't Lose. Intact on the DVD releases.

2nd Logo (July 16, 1992-June 13, 1993)

Visuals: On a colorful background, ripples are seen in the middle of the screen as a blob emerges from it. The blob settles and morphs into the text "CLYDE PHILLIPS" with "P R O D U C T I O N S" under it much smaller, and it is separated by a line. "in association with" fades in below.
