[Beverly Hills 90210]

Season 10 Opening Title Sequence

[90210 Sat Slate] [90210 Title Slate]

The opening has not changed from the end of last season.

The only difference, as seen in the above images, is that with the 100% ownership of Spelling Entertainment by Viacom, Paramount has taken over the delivery of the episodes to Canada.

But the closing sequence has.

For many years, the closing sequence composed of the text over a black background. In the early years, they put the text over images from the episode. They've returned to doing that, sorta. They are only using a single image, but an image none-the-less. You will not see these closing credits on FOX. Brought to you, exclusively, by Mr. Video!!!

Well, back to the old closing credits starting with the very next episode. Oh well, that didn't last very long. But, with the third episode, it was back to the image shown above. I guess they can't make up their minds :-)

[2/15/00 Update]: I have found out why there are closing credits with an image and closing credits with white text over black. They do both. For some reason Paramount uplinked all of the tape that Spelling produced. They don't normally send the textless material to Canada, as the textless material is meant for non-English speaking foreign countries (Yes, I know about French Quebec :-). The original feed was cancelled for some reason (2/15/00) and rescheduled for later that day. When the episode was finished they ran the textless material I normally see, but then they ran closing credits with the background image, since the closing credits as part of the show were the white text over black. They even fed the background image.

While U.S. viewers will never see the production supplied closing credits on FOX, it is interesting to note that there are two versions of the credits each week. So, for U.S. viewers, I have created MPEG-1 files of the two closing credits from the 2/16/00 episode (2199275). They are below.

Opening Credits Without Joe E. Tata

Starting with episode 2199272, Joe is no longer a member of the cast. While they have not reshot the opening credits, they have replaced his pieces with other cast shots.

Opening Credits With Returning Joe E. Tata

Starting with episode 2199279, Joe has returned to the lineup. Because Vanessa is now gone, they had to make yet another version of the opening credits.

Closing Credits

Here are the two versions of the closing credits. Obviously the text will change from week to week, but they provide an example of the two versions that are available to international customers. With the plain image, international customers can add the credits in their own language.
