(1988-1992)


The Lyons Group

Nickname: "The Signature"

Logo: On a
gray background, we see "THE" flashing on the top left, then the "Lyons" script writing itself on an outlined square, and finally, "GROUP" flashing on the bottom right.

Variant: The "Lyons" script color is in a darker blue in the Sandy Duncan variant.

FX/SFX
: The flashing and writing script.


Music/Sounds
: A fifteen-note string and flute fanfare sounding like an Irish tune.

Music/Sounds Variant: On very early prints of The Backyard Show and Three Wishes, a toy piano is heard playing the first three notes of "I Love You" (Barney's favorite song) then Sandy Duncan singing, "Love you!".


Availability: Can be seen on tapes of Barney and the Backyard Gang, among others. The 1992 re-prints of those tapes (without any previews) also have this logo. Later Barney videos (as well as re-prints of the Backyard Gang videos) would contain the Barney Home Video logos.

Scare Factor: None to minimal. The animation and music (which altogether makes the logo seem a bit TOO peaceful) might give some young kids the chills. Otherwise, it's harmless. Raised to low for the Sandy Duncan variant if you weren't expecting it.
