Background: Camelot Entertainment Sales, Inc. was the barter advertising sales division of King World Productions, Inc. that founded was in 1982. In addition to King World, it also supplied barter services to Merv Griffin Enterprises, MGM Television, MCA TV (until 1993), and Buena Vista Television. It was later renamed as "King World Media Sales" in 1997. Currently, this unit is known as

1st Logo

Nickname: "City Skyline"

Logo: We see the New York City skyline at dusk. The giant Baker-Miller pink gradient word "CAMELOT" zooms-up from behind the buildings, followed by the words "ENTERTAINMENT SALES", also in Baker-Miller pink, in a smaller typeface.

Trivia: One of King World's headquarters was based in New York City.

FX/SFX: The zooming words, which are simple 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: The same synth fanfare used for the 1989 King World "Spotlights" logo.

Availability: Extinct. This logo wasn't widely seen to begin with. So far, the only known appearance of
this logo was on MGM and Claster's short-lived 1993 Pink Panther cartoon (the one where he talks), which last aired on Boomerang UK.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

Logo: On a black background, we see a still shot of the Camelot Entertainment Sales logo with the giant red word "CAMELOT" and "ENTERTAINMENT SALES" in small white lettering centered underneath the logo.

Variant: At times, it used the 1990 logo setup with "ENTERTAINMENT SALES" in red and contained the text "EXCLUSIVE NATIONAL ADVERTISING SALES AGENT, CAMELOT ENTERTAINMENT SALES, INC." underneath the logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: A synth medieval majestic theme.

Music/Sounds Variant: At times, it used the 1989 King World logo theme.

Availability: Very rare. It was seen on James Bond Jr. and some episodes of Bruno the Kid.

Editor's Note: None. It's a little boring.
