The unique globe logo was

likely by Roland Butler

This logo was also done over a globe background. Ringling had a fit, and the Beatty show, under the Acme banner, at last painted it over.

Many years later & being

far more litigious RBBB

went after the State of

Idaho for an ad campaign

claiming "The Greatest

Snow On Earth" & won to

have them terminate it

Chic Silber said...

This globe Roger has the

longitude & Latitude lines

but they are hard to see

One account I read, admittedly with glee, had the Idaho judge throwing out the RBB claim against "The Greatest Snow on Earth", declaring Idaho snow has no association with circus performance. If the Feld team won on appeal, there is no surprise, but I hadn't heard. If the Felds had been that worked up about it, they could have kept their lawyers busy all over the map. I've seen The Greatest Show on Earth claim promoting everything from grocery store openings to used car lots.
