Nicknames: "Gold GL", "GL"

Logo: On a dark blue background, long gold light streaks travel from all sides of the screen, crossing each other in a spot on the upper left hand side. When the light streaks connect with each other, there are a few visible sparkles. The light streaks form a round square-like shape. The shape flashes brightly as two more streaks (which come from the top and left sides of the screen) go through it. The flash reveals a shining gold capital "G" (outlined in white) with an "L" crossing through the bottom part of it. At the same time, white text appears to the right that says "A GLEN LARSON PRODUCTION". Then more text appears underneath that says "IN ASSOCIATION WITH".

Trivia: The logo was animated by Ed Kramer at Image West in Hollywood, California.

  • A videotaped variant without the "IN ASSOCIATION WITH" text exists.
  • A black background variant exists.
  • A short version exists.

FX/SFX: The gold light streaks, sparkles, and flashing letters. Done using Scanimate.

Music/Sounds/Voice-over: A dramatic six-note orchestral score, which is sometimes extended in the end. On Knight Rider, the logo theme has been re-orchestrated and sped-up, also on some shows, Mr. Larson's voice over would say: "[NAME OF THE SHOW] is a Glen Larson Production..."

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on shows from the time like The Fall Guy, Automan, Manimal, Masquerade, Cover Up, and Knight Rider and TV movies of the time period. It's intact on DVD releases of The Fall Guy and all 4 seasons of Knight Rider.

Editor's Note: None.
