Leo the Lion aka @FamilyPrideBook

Leo the Lion is the mascot for the Hollywood film studio Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, featured in the studio's production logo.
Since 1924 (when the studio was formed by the merger of Samuel Goldwyn's studio with Marcus Loew's Metro Pictures and Louis B. Mayer's company), there have been around five different lions used for the MGM logo.
Derik Lattig says arguably the two most recognizable MGM lions today are Tanner,[1] the third MGM lion, and the current, unnamed fifth lion. Tanner was used on all 3-hueTechnicolor films and MGM cartoons (including the Tom and Jerry series), from 1935-1958, as well as the 1963-67 Chuck Jones cartoons, and in use on the studio logo for 24 years (the current lion has been in use since 1957, a total of 59 years).
