Jung Swan Television Productions (China)

Background: Jung Swan is the first Chinese television company made by Jung Swan (1928-2007) in 1946, which made some of the first television shows in China. The company made a television channel in 1949. They din't use a logo until 1950.

1st Logo
(1950-1980's)

Nicknames: "The Evil Radio Tower", "Radio Tower of Doom", "Constantin Film's Got Nothing On This"

Logo: On a sunbeam background, we see a circle containing an image of a radio tower on a stormy sky. The radio tower emits thunderbolts, which go to the bottom of the screen. The words "JUNG SWAN" suddenly zoom up to the top of the screen.

Variants:

  • In 1966, the logo was colored. The sumbean background is now red and the radio tower is now colored in it's respective color.
  • In the 1980's, the logo was redone with an computerised look.

FX/SFX/Cheese Factor: All the 2D animation, which looks good for the time. It looks a bit abrupt, though.

Music/Sounds: A creepy-sounding bombastic fanfare consisting of only 1 note. On other shows, silent.

Availability: Extinct. It was seen only on TV shows during the 1950's-1980's. They don't air to TV anymore.

Scare Factor:

  • NIGHTMARE. It's a very jarring logo, coming directly after whatever comes to it. The creepy music and look gave nightmares to many people.
  • Medium to high for the silent variant, as we still have the creepy-looking logo.
  • Medium to high for the color/1980's variant, since it is less dark than the original logo.
  • None to low for people who aren't afraid to this logo.
