Nicknames: "FB", "Gold B"

Logo: On a black background, we see a giant solid gold Italicized "B" in 2D with a letter "F" inside the solid that appears to be a cote-out. Underneath the logo, the text says "Fiedler/Berlin" in a medium-sized font and the text "Productions, Inc." all in gold lettering.

  • On the game show Wordplay, the logo is smaller and underneath the logo there is a co-production logo for Rick Ambrose Television. His logo contains a 3D letter "R" with zebra stripes and the letters "TV" in yellow sitting on the bottom of the letter "R" that's a rip-off of the MTV logo. On the side of the "R" says "Rick Ambrose" in 2D lettering with the text "In Association With" and the word "TELEVISION" below in small lettering.
  • On the game show Treasure Mall, the text "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" is seen above the logo.
  • On the game show Trump Card, the Fiedler/Berlin text is on the side of the "B" logo. There is a logo above the Fiedler/Berlin logo for Createl, Ltd. The logo for Createl features an outlined rounded rectangle with a star inside. Below has the text "CREATEL LTD." in big lettering all in a Daybreak colored background. There is a line below that separates between the Createl and Fiedler/Berlin logos.

FX/SFX: A shining wipe effect.

Music/Sounds: A choir sings with a light four note theme. On Wordplay, it's the end-title theme. On Trump Card, announcer Chuck Reilly announces "Trump Card is a production of Createl Ltd. and Fiedler/Berlin Productions, in association with Telepictures Productions and is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution.".

Availability: Extinct. It was seen on the short-lived game shows Wordplay, Treasure Mall, and Trump Card. It may have been seen on the 80s game show Chance for Romance and Top to Bottom.
