Logo (1988-mid-late 1995)


Visuals: On a shady pale blue gradient background, a rainbow-gradient scribble, shaped vaguely like a "N" draws in as it zooms out to the left side of the screen. After it stops drawing, the platinum words "Wood Knapp" fade in, then "a", above "Wood Knapp", and "production", below it, fade in, making it:

a

Wood Knapp
production

At the end of tapes, it reads:

Wood Knapp
Video

Everything casts a drop shadow.

Variant: Occasionally, the opening logo's text will read:

Wood Knapp
Video

presents

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A friendly tune comprised of a saxophone and bells.

Availability: Seen on tapes including Children's Circle (the tape of Corduroy strangely lacks this logo), One Minute Bible Stories with Shari Lewis and Lamb Chop, Wood Knapp releases of fitness VHS tapes, and some United Artists releases.
