"Meet Newton" theme now on iTunes --

My uncle was CEO/owner of SynPet back in the 1980s-90s and gave us a VHS copy of the promo those ages ago. I remember taking it to school and getting permission to show it to my 5/6th grade classmates. Hard to believe anything like that could have run on an IBM XT, much less with 1200 baud. Anyhow, enjoy!

~ NEWS ~

Zeppotron, a production company in the UK, has signed papers with my uncle (whereupon my uncle delegated/granted me full authority to handle future copyright matters) to use on their Channel Four program, "8 out of 10 Cats." The clip was reportedly used during the filming of an episode in early October 2010 with a studio audience, but did not make it to the final broadcast cut. Zeppotron still has signed rights to use it on an upcoming episode, if it wishes, and the blessing to do so.

As of late November 2010, negotiations have begun with Endemol, Zeppotron's parent company, about the possibility of using the clip for an (unannounced?) upcoming British television program not even in its first season/series yet.

In December 2010, papers were signed with Endemol to use the clip on that then-upcoming television program hosted by British comedian, Frankie Boyle.

In February 2010, services by TuneCore.com were employed, to release the jingle portion of the promo from about 06:22 thru 07:15 onto music services like iTunes, Rhapsody, and several others. Plans for releasing the entire clip's audio (minus the ender logo for Training Media Services) will depend on how well the jingle does on the market.
