    I ♥ Mimsie/Mimsey, The MTM Kitty

    And now for something completely adorable….

    Operah had a reunion of the Mary Tyler Moore show, one of my fav telly programmes. And at the end of the show, Mary’s production company logo appears.

    The kitten’s name was Mimsey.

    Mary Tyler Moore Enterprises, Inc. LogoMTM Kitty Cat – Little orange kitty cat seen on the closing logo of the MTM Mary Tyler Moore Enterprises, Inc. TV Productions. A parody of the roaring Leo the Lion mascot (who appeared at the beginning and ending of the Metro-Goldwyn Mayer films) the “MTM” kitty concluded each episode with a sweet but timid “Meow.” According to her biography After All (Dell Publishing, 1995) Mary Tyler Moore recalled how MTM was very similar to MGM Studios corporate name. With that in mind, producer Allan Burns said “MTM’s a small company so we could have an orange kitten meow in the same setting as their lion. A few days later, a visit to the local animal shelter produced the kitten that would roar. After her foray into show business, the kitten lived the remainder of its life in the San Fernando Valley home of an MTM staffer.” Mimsey was born in 1968 and died in 1988. The Mimsey logo has appeared at the end of many MTM productions and with a number of variations. On episode # 71 of the original series Mary Tyler Moore appeared in place of the MTM Kitty, and mouthed the words “Th-th-th-that’s all folks!” [a repeat of the phrase she spoke in the same episode]. Other programs produced by MTM productions used a variation of the Mimsey Logo. Here is a list:

    * The original “Meow” logo was also used on The Bob Newhart Show and WKRP In Cincinnati.

    * At the end of the “Put on a Happy Face” episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, Mary Tyler Moore herself appeared in place of Mimsey and mouthed the words “Th-th-th-that’s all folks!”

    * At the end of the 1991 Mary Tyler Moore Reunion Show, Mimsey said “Bye!” in Mary Tyler Moore’s voice.

    * On videos produced by MTM Home Video, the kitten holds a remote control. After meowing, the kitten hits “rewind”. The picture winds backwards (and loses color), and the kitten meows again.

    * The Duck Factory: As the logo fades in, a voiceover says “And now, here’s the cat!” The cat then quacks.

    * The Graham Kerr Show: As befits a Cooking Show, the kitten wore a chef’s hat.

    * Similarly, on Hill Street Blues, the kitten wore a policeman’s hat.

    * Newhart: Bob Newhart’s voice says “Meow” — except for the last episode, where Darryl and Darryl screaming “QUIET!” is used instead.

    * The New WKRP in Cincinnati: Instead of a meow, you hear Les Nessman saying “Ooooh!”

    * For Remington Steele the cat wears a Sherlock Holmes deerstalker cap and has a meerschaum pipe in its mouth; when it meows, the pipe falls and lands in front of the word “Productions”.

    * St Elsewhere: The kitten is dressed for surgery in mask and smock. In the final episode, the kitten appeared beneath the closing credits, hooked up to life support machinery, and flatlined at the end of the credits.

    * The Steve Allen Show: The kitten wears heavy black eyeglasses and declares “Schmock!” in the voice of Steve Allen.

    * The White Shadow: A different kitten from the usual Mimsey bounces a basketball off the MTM logo.

    * Xuxa: The kitten uses the voice of Xuxa saying “Ciao!”

    Just to make sure you know, MTM stands for the initials of the company’s co-founder, Mary Tyler Moore.

    (1970-1998)

    Nicknames: “The MTM Kitten”, “Meow”

    Logo: Over the years, the logo has been tweaked colorwise and according to certain shows, but here’s the basic concept: An “M” flies backward from off screen, then splits into two. In the space left between the two letters, two “T’s” come from the top and bottom of the screen and join to form one. This completes the initials of the company, and the “T” shrinks when a gold circle appears over it. Under the letters are the words “ENTERPRISES INC.” (or whatever MTM is calling the company at the time) Back to the circle, it is ribbon-like and decorated with stars and the letters “MTM” on top. Inside is an orange striped kitten who meows once, obviously in parody of the MGM lion.

    Trivia Note: The cat’s name was “Mimsie,” though nicknames such as “Dick Turpin” and “Dick Marino” have also been used in naming the cat.

    Movie Version?: A still version of this logo did turn up in the movies, notably the Orion Pictures Release of “Just Between Friends” and possibly more. This is a still of the “Red/Blue Letters” version of the logo, and is shrunk to a considerably small size. No music, animation, or “meow” is present.

    TV Distribution: A still version of the logo was used for MTM’s TV Distribution division. It has the regular “MTM” (in gold), and under that and a line are the words “TELEVISION DISTRIBUTION GROUP.” The circle and picture of the kitten are much bigger, and the kitten looks like he’s smiling.

    Variations: First here are the little differences in the logo, along with dates in which they were used:

    * 1970-71: One “M” was red-orange, the other was red, and the “T” was blue and formed by the merging of a light blue “T” and a green one.

    * 1971-78: The “M’s” are both red-orange, and the “T” light blue.

    * 1978-83: Company now identified as MTM Productions Inc.

    * 1983-91: Company identified as MTM Enterprises Inc. The “M’s” are now red.

    * 1992-95, 1996-98: All letters are gold, the words “An International Family Entertainment Company” appear, after MTM was bought by the Family Channel.

    * 1995-96: 25th Anniversary logo; on a white background is a black “25,” with a similarly colored MTM under that. The kitten appears in the rounded part of the “5.”

    Now, one thing that the MTM logo was known for was that often, it would be custom made for whatever show it appeared at the end of. This means the kitten’s appearance would sometimes be different. Here are those variations:

    * The Duck Factory: As the logo forms, a off-screen voice states, “Where’s the cat?” Instead of meowing, the cat says, “Quack!”

    * Graham Kerr: The kitten wears a chef’s hat.

    * Hill Street Blues: The kitten would wear a policeman’s cap. The logo also said “An MTM Enterprises Production” instead of the standard message.

    * Lou Grant & Paris: There is a still picture of the logo.

    * The Mary Tyler Moore Show: The kitten usually meows normally, however, on the 2nd episode, the kitten’s meow is higher-pitched, rather shrill. On Episode 71, the meow is replaced by Miss Moore herself, saying “Th-th-th-that’s all folks!”, a line spoken by Mary Richards during that episode.

    * The Bob Newhart Show: The 1972 Christmas episode features a wreath in place of the MTM ribbon.

    * The New WKRP: Dubbed with Les Nesman Jr. exclaiming “Ooh!”

    * Newhart: The kitten meows… in Bob Newhart’s voice. On the final episode, the cat yells “QUIET!”, (the two Darryls’ first and only word)

    * Remington Steele: The kitten wears a Sherlock Holmes deerstalker cap and meerschaum pipe. While meowing, the pipe drops out of its mouth and falls in front of the word “Productions”.

    * St. Elsewhere: The kitten is wearing a scrub suit and a surgical mask, which is animated to look like a mouth is moving underneath when he meows. On the final episode, he is hooked on life support on a hospital bed and then goes flatline.

    * The Steve Allen Show: The kitten (who also wears Allen’s famous eyeglasses) lip-syncs Allen’s “Schmock!”

    * White Shadow: The cat (who is not Mimsie, it’s a different black and white cat) is pawing at a basketball. Also has “An MTM Enterprises Production” and no animation in the letters.

    * Xuxa: Another dub job, instead of “meow,” the kitten says “ciao”

    * Home Video: The kitten holds a remote control. After meowing, the kitten hits “rewind”. The picture winds backwards (and loses color), and the kitten meows again.

    FX: The splitting, dropping, merging, and shrinking letters.

    On the White Shadow variation, the cat’s movements are caused by looped footage.

    Music: None really, except in 1996 when a 5-note jingle was added. Other than that, the end theme usually finished over it and that was it.

    Availability: Uncommon, MTM has since been dissolved into 20th Century Fox when Fox acquired IFE, but you can still see the logos on some cable and syndicated reruns, depending on the prints. Nick At Nite/TNN’s prints of “Newhart” and “WKRP” kept the MTM logo, but usually, shows like “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” and “Remington Steele” on PAX will have the 20th Century Fox logo instead. The 20th Television logo has also been spotted on Rescue 911 and St. Elsewhere reruns, as well as on Hill Street Blues (which speeds up the end credits as well in order to plaster the 20th). So basically, the MTM logo can only be seen on older prints of their shows.

    I really want to find good quality video clips of all these variations. The cat is too cute.

    Here are some video links that i have found so far (I hope to save all these eventually) -

    Background: Just to make sure you know, MTM stands for the initials of the company’s co-founder, Mary Tyler Moore. It was also founded by Moore’s husband, Grant Tinker, in 1970. Actually, all MTM library is held mainly by News Corporation.

    (1970-1998)

    MTM – CLG WikiMTM – CLG WikiMTM – CLG WikiMTM – CLG Wiki

    Nicknames: “The MTM Kitten”, “Mimsie the Cat”, “MEOW!”

    Logo: Over the years, the logo has been tweaked colorwise and according to certain shows, but here’s the basic concept: An “M” flies backward from off screen, then splits into two. In the space left between the two letters, two “T’s” come from the top and bottom of the screen and join to form one. This completes the initials of the company, and the “T” shrinks when a gold circle appears over it. Under the letters are the words “ENTERPRISES INC,” “ENTERPRISES,” or “PRODUCTIONS.” Sometimes the finished logo will read out “An MTM Enterprises Inc. Production” (“An” appears over the first M). Back to the circle, it is ribbon-like and decorated with stars and the letters “MTM” on top. Inside is a live-action orange striped kitten who meows once, obviously in parody of the MGM lion. All the text (except for the later versions) appear in the Peignot font used for Mary Tyler Moore.

    Trivia: The cat’s name was “Mimsie,” though nicknames such as “Dick Turpin” and “Dick Marino” have also been used in naming the cat.

    Still Variant: A still version of this logo did turn up in the movies, notably the Orion Pictures Release of “Just Between Friends” and possibly more. This is a still of the “Red/Blue Letters” version of the logo, and is shrunk to a considerably small size. No music, animation, or “meow” is present. See Variations below for the logo seen at the end of Universal’s A Little Sex.

    Logo Variants: First here are the little differences in the logo, along with dates in which they were used:

    * 1970-1971: One “M” was red-orange, the other was red, and the “T” was blue and formed by the merging of a light blue “T” and a green one.

    * 1971-1978: The “M’s” are both red-orange, and the “T” light blue.

    * 1978-1983: Company now identified as MTM Productions Inc.

    * 1983-1991: Company identified as MTM Enterprises Inc. The “M’s” are now red.

    * 1992-1995/1996-1998: All letters are gold, the words “An International Family Entertainment Company” appear, after MTM was bought by the Family Channel.

    * 1995-1996: 25th Anniversary logo; on a white background is a black “25,” with a similarly colored MTM under that. The kitten appears in the rounded part of the “5″. Evidence needed for this variation; likely only a print logo.

    Custom Variants: Now, one thing that the MTM logo was known for was that often, it would be custom made for whatever show it appeared at the end of. This means Mimsie’s appearance would sometimes be different, usually involving her “wearing” a costume or saying something other than “meow.” Here are those variations:

    * The Duck Factory: As the logo forms, a off-screen voice states, “Where’s the cat?” Instead of meowing, Mimsie says, “Quack!”

    * Graham Kerr: Mimsie wears a chef’s hat.

    * Hill Street Blues: Mimsie wears a policeman’s cap.

    * Lou Grant & Paris: There is a still picture of the logo.

    * The Mary Tyler Moore Show: Same as usual, but on the 2nd episode, Mimsie’s meow is higher-pitched, rather shrill. On Episode 71, the cat is replaced by the image of Miss Moore herself, saying “Th-th-th-that’s all folks!”, a line spoken by Mary Richards during that episode. Who is also saying the line of Porky Pig.

    * The Bob Newhart Show: The 1972 Christmas episode features a wreath in place of the MTM ribbon.

    * The New WKRP: Dubbed with Les Nesman Jr. exclaiming “Ooh!”

    * Newhart: Each episode featured Mimsie meowing… in Bob Newhart’s voice. On the final episode, the cat yells “QUIET!”, (the two Darryls’ first and only word)

    * Remington Steele: Mimsie wears a Sherlock Holmes deerstalker cap and meerschaum pipe. While meowing, the pipe drops out of her mouth and falls in front of the word “Productions”. (NOTE: The “variation” seen on YouTube where Mimsie drops a gun and it fires a hole into the logo is a mockup and was never a real variation)

    * St. Elsewhere: Mimsie is wearing a scrub suit and a surgical mask, which is animated to look like a mouth is moving underneath when she meows. On the final episode, she (possibly portrayed by another cat) is hooked on life support on a hospital bed throughout the last credit roll. The credits run as usual over a picture of the MTM circle, with life support equipment attached on either side. You can hear the beeps of the heart monitor over the end theme too. After the credits complete, the company name fades in and Mimsie flatlines and dies, with a long high pitched beep heard. This variation is especially rare, as reruns of the finale plastered it over with the typical credits. (As a sidenote, the actual cat, Mimsie, died in 1988, the same year St. Elsewhere ended.)

    * The Steve Allen Show: Mimsie (who also wears Allen’s famous eyeglasses) lip-syncs Allen’s “Schmock!”

    * White Shadow: Mimsie is replaced by a black and white cat bouncing a basketball. There is a shorter version with the company name already there and the cat footage looped (and thus he is continually bouncing the ball). The other has the letters animating as usual and at the end, the ball falls off-screen and the cat appears to be looking down at it.

    * Xuxa: Another dub job, instead of “meow,” Mimsie says “ciao”

    * Home Video: Mimsie holds a remote control. After meowing, the kitten hits “rewind”. The picture winds backwards (and loses color), and Mimsie meows again.

    * A Little Sex: MTM logo forms as usual…but Mimsie is a cartoon! She is also more to the side of the circle, which now has a black background. She meows as always, and then another cat enters the circle! The two felines rub against each other and start purring.

    FX: The M zooming out and morphing into 2 Ms, and the T dropping. The rest is shown above.

    Music: None really, except the end theme usually finished over it and that was it. Starting in 1996, a 5-note jingle was added before the meow.

    Availability: Common. Can be seen on St. Elsewhere, Hill Street Blues, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Bob Newhart Show, Newhart, Lou Grant, and WKRP in Cincinnati aired on AmericanLife Television Network as MTM (and other production companies now under the News Corp. library) is now followed by 20th Television. The only factors are the rarity of widespread reruns of MTM shows, and Fox’s sparse releasing of DVDs.

    also needed are -

    # Carlton Your Doorman: Instead of Mimsie, Carlton’s cat is in the ribbon. Carlton (voiced by Lorenzo Music) can be heard saying “Say ‘Meow!’ C’mon, say ‘Meow!’” When it doesn’t, Carlton sneers “Oh, you naughty and damn old cat!”

    # An MTM International variation was seen with an entirely still logo, the picture of Mimsie larger, and the text smaller (similar to the size of the MTM Home Video logo).

    # Vampire: The MTM text is all in dark red, and Mimsie is nowhere to be seen.

    # The Texas Wheelers and Paul Sand in Friends and Lovers: Mimsie is a live cat photographed against a real landscape.

    # Bay City Blues: Mimsie wears a catcher’s cap and mask.

    The 1990s MTM logo.

    The 1990s MTM logo.

    MTM Enterprises was an independent production company established in 1969 by Mary Tyler Moore and her then-husband Grant Tinker to produce The Mary Tyler Moore Show for CBS. The name for the production company was drawn from Moore’s initials. [1]

    After being an independent production company for many years, MTM was sold in 1990 to TVS Entertainment plc, which was in turn acquired by Pat Robertson’s International Family Entertainment in late 1992. IFE along with MTM was sold to Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation in 1996. MTM ceased operations and was folded into 20th Century Fox Television on August 15, 1998 when The Family Channel became Fox Family.

    For many years MTM, with CBS, co-owned the CBS Studio Center in Studio City, California, where a majority of their programs were filmed and videotaped.

    CBS connection

    MTM programs appeared almost exclusively on CBS until the early 1980s, when Grant Tinker assumed the additional role of president of NBC. Soon, NBC picked up a number of MTM shows, and Tinker stepped down as head of MTM to avoid a conflict of interest. His intention was to leave NBC after 5 years (in 1986) and return to MTM, taking over the reins from interim MTM president Arthur Price. However, Price fired many of the key players in the company’s ranks, and by 1986 they had few shows left on the schedules (Hill Street Blues, St. Elsewhere and Remington Steele were all nearing the ends of their runs, leaving Newhart as the sole entrant on the schedule). There was also a record label in the 1980s featuring the logo on the label. No major artists recorded for this label, although the artists did have a few minor hits on the country charts in the mid-1980s.

    Mimsie the Cat

    The company is also remembered for its mascot, Mimsie the Cat (1968-1988), who was an obvious parody of MGM’s Leo the Lion. Mimsie was in real life, Mary Tyler Moore’s cat. In each MTM production, Mimsie (also known as “Dick Turpin” and “Dick Marino”) would arrive in a different disguise as its closing logo, corresponding to the style and theme of a certain show. For example:

    * Hill Street Blues: Mimsie wears a police cap.

    * St. Elsewhere: Mimsie is seen in medical scrubs and a surgical mask. On the show’s final episode, Mimsie is in a hospital bed as the credits roll, and then when the credits end, she dies.

    * The White Shadow: Mimsie is replaced by a calico cat dribbling a basketball. There is a shorter version with the company name already there and the cat footage looped (and thus he is continually bouncing the ball). The other (seen only at the end of the series pilot) has the letters animating as usual and at the end, the ball falls off-screen and the cat appears to be looking down at it.

    * Remington Steele: Mimsie dressed as Sherlock Holmes. The smoking pipe in Mimsie’s mouth would drop when she meowed.

    * The New WKRP in Cincinnati: The “meow” is replaced with Les Nessman exclaiming “oooooOOOOooooh!”

    * The Bob Newhart Show: The 1972 Christmas episode features a wreath in place of the MTM ribbon.

    * Newhart: The “meow” is voiced by Bob Newhart (although the kitten meows normally on the pilot episode). In the last episode, instead of meowing, Mimsie yells “QUIET!” (which was the two Darryls’ first and only word, spoken in the finale).

    * Xuxa: Voice-over says “Ciao!”

    * The Mary Tyler Moore Show: On episode #2, the meow is higher pitched. At the end of episode #71, Mary appears saying “That’s all folks!”, parodying Porky Pig.

    * The Duck Factory: The singer of the closing song would ask “Where’s the cat?”, followed by Mimsie quacking.

    * Lou Grant, Paris, and Just Between Friends: There is a still picture of the logo. The still picture is in the end credits of Just Between Friends.

    * Phyllis: Same logo, but where others end as the end theme fades out or ends, the logo plays in a pause before the last note of the song.

    * Graham Kerr: Mimsie wears a chef’s hat.

    * The Steve Allen Show: Mimsie wears Allen’s glasses and lip-synchs Allen’s “Schmock.”

    * The Texas Wheelers and Paul Sand in Friends and Lovers: Mimsie is a live cat photographed against a real landscape.

    * A Little Sex: Mimsie is joined by a second cat. In this one, the cats are both animated and appear against a black background inside the circle.

    * Bay City Blues: Mimsie wears a catcher’s cap and mask.

    * MTM Home Video releases show Mimsie holding a remote control and, after meowing, stepping on the remote to “rewind” and meow a second time.

    * Carlton Your Doorman: Instead of Mimsie, Carlton’s cat is in the ribbon. Carlton (voiced by Lorenzo Music) can be heard saying “Say ‘Meow!’ C’mon, say ‘Meow!’” When it doesn’t, Carlton sneers “Oh, you naughty and damn old cat!”

    * An MTM International variation was seen with an entirely still logo, the picture of Mimsie larger, and the text smaller (similar to the size of the MTM Home Video logo).

    * Vampire: The MTM text is all in dark red, and Mimsie is nowhere to be seen.

    * 25th Anniversary: The number “25″ is seen in black on a white background, with a similarly colored “MTM” under that. Mimsie appears in the rounded part of the “5″.

    This one will probably be impossible to find, but it was so unforgettable that I still remember it decades later. On the last episode of The Paul Sand Show (Friends and Lovers) the kitten meowed as usual, and then the whole circle logo rotated 180 degrees, with a sound effect denoting a “flop.” IIRC it was the first MTM show that flopped.
