Background: Bloodworth-Thomason-Mozark Productions is a production company founded in 1982 first known as "Linda Bloodworth Productions" and later "L.J. Bloodworth Productions" by writer Linda Joyce Bloodworth-Thomason. In July 1983, Bloodworth married Harry Thomason, whom they've met in 1980 and during the time in 1983, the duo created "Mozark Productions", named after their home states: "MO" for Missouri & "ARK" for Arkansas and an allusion of the overlapping Ozarks region.

FX/SFX: None.

2nd Logo
(September 29, 1986-May 11, 1991)

Bloodworth Thompson Mozark ProductionsBloodworth/Thompson Mozark Productions (1986)

Nicknames: "The Sliding Heart", “The Red-to-White Heart”, "TheDesigning WomenLogo"

Logo: As this logo is superimposed on the Designing Women credits, we see an orange heart sliding to the right, and reveals the red text "MOZARK" (in a bulky font bearing a striking resemblance to the Burger King logo of the time) as the heart turns to red. As the heart disappears, the "MOZARK" turns to white. As it turns white, we see "Bloodworth-Thomason" on top, and "productions" in italics at the bottom of the text. As the logo finishes, the text "in association with" is shown under.

Variant: On a first few episodes, there were no shadow effects.

FX/SFX: The sliding heart revealing the text.

Cheesy Factor: The animation is choppy, the "MOZARK" font is ugly, and the rest of the text is cheaply inserted.

Music/Sounds: A synth chime sound effect.

Availability: Common. It's currently seen on Designing Women on Logo TV. It's also intact on DVD releases of said show.

Scare Factor: Low.



3rd Logo
(1990- )

Bloodworth/Thompson Mozark Productions (Big version)Bloodworth Thompson Mozark Productions (IAW)Bloodworth Thomason MozarkBloodworth/Thoapson Mozark Productions (2001)

Nicknames: "Art and Filmstrips", "Filmstrips and Ozarks"

Logo: On a gray background, we see a still picture depicting of the Ozarks with blue filmstrips curved through the Ozarks. Under that we see the text:

BLOODWORTH/THOMASON
MOZARK
P R O D U C T I O N S

    Variants
    :
    • Sometimes, you'll see the words "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" above the logo.
    • On season 1 of Evening Shade and the first episode of the sixth season of Designing Women, the words "BLOODWORTH/THOMASON" were in big letters and was also in a rectangle.
    • In 2001, an updated version was introduced where the filmstrip glows through the back to the front and still remain. The theme is tuned to the glowing. The company name and the picture is slightly widened.

    FX/SFX
    : None for the regular version. The glowing on the updated version.

    Music/Sounds: Some synth tinkles followed by an orchestral chord.

    Availability: Seen on Mozark shows such as Designing Women, Hearts Afire, Evening Shade, and possibly the short-lived HBO series 12 Miles of Bad Road. The updated version appeared on the infamous short-lived sitcom Emeril.

    Scare Factor: Low to medium, thanks to the slightly creepy music.
