The Bud Austin Company

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


This is the production company of Bud Austin.

Logo (March 14, 1978-March 19, 1983)

Visuals: Superimposed into the end credits is Bud Austin's signature with the words "A" and "PRODUCTION" over and underneath it. The text usually has a shadow effect.


  • On Whew!, the company is named "THE Bud Austin COMPANY" and has the text "A PRODUCTION OF" over it.
    • The pilot episode has the Whew! logo on top and the Bud Austin logo in a stacked format. The notice is also in green.
    • Later episodes of Whew! has the text "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" over the logo.
  • Sometimes, the logo is in gold and may have a black border instead of a shadow.

Technique: A still, computerized graphic.

Audio: The ending theme of the program.

Availability: Their output, Whew!, Perfect Gentlemen, and the Still the Beaver pilot, were long lost and only available through original TV airings. Recently, this logo began to show up on Whew! reruns on Buzzr either through online or live TV. It was also spotted on a broadcast of Perfect Gentlemen on the Dutch network NPO2 (then called TV2). The logo doesn't appear on the final episode of Whew! as the Burt Sugarman Inc. logo is shown instead.
