1st Logo
(September 29, 1959-July 5, 1960)

Martin Manulis Productions<embed height="175" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="220" wmode="transparent"/>

Nickname: "The Weird Object" (not to be confused with the Nickelodeon logo)

Logo: We would see several weird objects including a stick, a weird bow tie with stars and finally, another weird bow tie with stars, with the text "A MARTIN MANULIS PRODUCTION" under it, on a black background.

Variant: On the first two seasons of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis and Adventures in Paradise, the logo fades to the 20th Century-Fox TV "Starry Sky" logo of the era after a second.

FX/SFX: Nothing superimposed, but the weird objects and the text both fading in.

Music/Sounds: The opening or closing theme of the show.

Availability: Rare. Seen on S1 episodes of The Many Loves of Dobie Gillis, so it's an easy find, as well on Adventures in Paradise.

Editor's Note: The weird objects can catch you off guard.

2nd Logo
(September 27, 1960-June 27, 1961)

Logo: On a cloudy background, we see the text "A MARTIN MANULIS PRODUCTION"

FX/SFX: None. It's a let down from the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the program.

Availability: Seen on later episodes of The Many Loves of Dobie Gills.

Editor's Note: None.
