Question ID: 419601
Why is 20th Century Fox called what it is? And if it's called "Fox",
why doesn't it have a fox as it's logo instead of those spotlight
things and that gold building with it's name?

20th Century Fox is called because of its founder William Fox and the
merging of his company
with 20th Century Pictures Inc.  It was renamed to 20th Century Fox in 1935.

The logo as it appears now on 20th Century Fox's TV shows and films,
and possibly games
is because it originated with 20th Century Pictures Logo.  When
William Fox's company merged with
Darryl F. Zanuck's 20th Century Pictures Inc., "Pictures Inc." was
soon replaced with "Fox" and thus,
a new Logo was born.

As a side note, the music that is playing during the 20th Century Fox
logo was written by Alfred Newman.


I hope that answers your question.

Thank you.
