This is the production company of Quincy Jones. In 1993, it was merged with David Salzman Enterprises, forming Quincy Jones-David Salzman Entertainment.

Logo (September 10, 1989-September 27, 1993)

Visuals: On a space background, there is a rhinoceros gray statue of what appears to be an alien. Now to the animation: the camera pans backwards to see that the statue is in a picture frame, and "QUINCY JONES ENTERTAINMENT" (in blue) appears (the "Q" in a strange design), and zooms back to place itself under the picture frame and the statue. "in association with" (also in blue) appears below.

Trivia: The statue seen in this logo, which is that of a West African fertility god, first appeared on the cover of Quincy Jones' 1981 album The Dude (still in print on CD from A&M Records) The lettering seen here is adapted from the Quincy Jones Productions logo, which often appeared on his many musical productions (most notably on Michael Jackson's 1979-87 recordings and his own Qwest record label, whose logo was another adaptation of the QJP logo) starting in 1976.

Technique: CGI produced at Synthespian Studios by Jeff Kleiser and Diana Walczak. This logo was created in Wavefront Advanced Visualizer on a Silicon Graphics Personal Iris 4D/70.

Audio: The end of the show's closing theme. One episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air has a 3-note "outer space" tune.

Availability: Seen on the first three seasons of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. It is left intact on reruns and Max prints.
