Bartlett Toy Video
Nicknames: "Neon Mario", "Mario's Outlines"
Logo: On a black background, we see many rainbow outlines of Mario appearing and spinning. They then turn white while "Bartlett Toy Video" in yellow writes itself. The outlines then turn Gray and last but not least, the mario outlines turn Fire Red.
FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The logo is made using cheap scanimate effects.
Music/Sounds: This logo had two themes. The first one used up until 1986 was a funky 70's-style theme and the second one used up on 1986 until 1989 was a synth hum. There's a few tapes that have this logo silent.
Availability: Extremely rare. Check eBay for VHS releases containing this logo. It can be seen on pre-cert releases.
Scare Factor: Low to medium for the 1st music and low for the 2nd music, the darkness may scare some, but otherwise, it's harmless.
Bartlett Toy Home Video
Nicknames: See the Bartlett Toy Video logo.
Logo: Same as the Bartlett Toy Video logo, but "Home Video" replaces "Video".

Scare Factor: See the Bartlett Toy Video logo.
Nicknames: "Bartlett Toy Videotape", "The Videotape"
Logo: On a black background, a videotape zooms up to us. Then, we see several clips of Bartlett Toy classics until we have a photo of the 1985 logo, with "Home Video" replacing "Films".
FX/SFX: Great CGI.
Music/Sounds: A pompous march.
Availability: Seen on all VHS releases from Bartlett Toy Home Video at the time.
Scare Factor: None.
Bartlett Toy Laserdisc
Nickname: "The Laserdisc"
Logo: On a black background, we see a laserdisc crazily animating until it shatters into pieces. We cut to a still photo of the Bartlett Toy Films logo from 1985 with "Laserdisc" replacing "Films".
FX/SFX: Everything. Not too bad CGI!
Music/Sounds: A 1980's synth theme.
