One week earlier, on Monday, May 15, 1989, Lorimar Telepictures Corporation, who produced this film under the Lorimar Television name, was purchased by Time Warner Inc. Time Warner continued to use the Lorimar logo until 1993, when they folded Lorimar and absorbed it into Warner Bros. Television. (Current syndicated TV prints of this film, as well as the Warner Home Video "Warner Archive" DVD release, have the original Lorimar logo seen at the end deleted and replaced by the Warner Bros. "WB shield" logo.) See more
