The Lyons Group

During this logo's usage, The Lyons Group only ever produced the direct-to-video series Barney and the Backyard Gang, and had never made a single other title.

Lyrick Studios



Though this logo was used, it was never seen on any VHS tapes distributed by the company in favor of the next logo.



On March 11, 1997, Lyrick Studios debut with a new type of logo. The letters in its logo were black with a different color connecting to them and a blue dot for the i.

On February 9, 2001, Lyrick Studios was acquired by HIT Entertainment. HIT only used the logo and company name to reference Lyrick-related merchandising and shows until its folding on August 31. After HIT was acquired by Mattel, the name of the company disappeared in 2012.


Although Lyrick Studios is an overall independent children's studio, it didn't always release its titles on its own. It once had a deal with PBS to distribute Barney & Friends, under its PBS Kids label, but during the television release only, as Lyrick fully owns that title on video. It also had a deal with PolyGram Filmed Entertainment to distribute the 1998 full length feature film Barney's Great Adventure.

From 1998 to 2002, they paired with Big Idea Entertainment for mass market distribution of prints and reprints of VeggieTales home videos.
