Nu Metro Home Entertainment[]

1st Logo
(1987-1997)

Nickname: "Neon Mountain"

Logo: On a black background with a red/blue gradient sky, a square made from white and blue lines slides in below onscreen before immediately splitting apart. They starting spinning around the screen in many different ways. They form a striped triangle as the background fades to black, with a red translucent pyramid appearing almost off screen and starts to accelerate towards the triangle. It vanishes as a red/yellow/green gradient triangle flips into its place and a large abstract "N" zooms out from above, shining on its silver skin. It stops zooming and tilts slightly to the right, with "NU METRO" appearing and flipping up in a silver futuristic font. As the logo shines, "PRESENTS" in both Afrikaans and English fade in on each side of the text.

FX/SFX: Too complicated to describe, but its a combination of hand-drawn animation and CGI.

Music/Sounds: An upbeat synth tune that sounds like something out of MTV or VH1 at the time.

Availability: Check on old VHS tapes on eBay for this logo.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(1995-2011)

Nickname: "Neon Mountain II"

Logo: A drop falls down over a rippling pool of silver liquid, which appears to reflect the Nu Metro logo. As the drop goes into the liquid, it makes a splash and opens up a portal with a portal of yellow light, in which leads to a multicolored cave. As we fly through the cave, several asteroids with colored trails fly by the camera and 3 comets colored red, yellow, and green fly away from the camera. When they collide, a explosion occurs and several pieces of the Nu Metro emerge as the background fades to a murky blue fog. The "N", now in white with purple sides, and the triangle drop within each other. A white outline then drops down behind the logo and several blue lines shoot out to form the striped triangle while "NU METRO" is formed by a passing light. They're grey at first, but fade to white at the end.

FX/SFX: The silver liquid, the splash, the asteroids, the logo being formed. Again, it’s hand-drawn animation mixed with CGI.

Music/Sounds: While a synthesized humming sound is heard, we hear a "splash", birds chirping, two more synth tones, a laser zap, high-pitched laser zaps sounding like an alarm, and a series of "clunks".

Availability: Common. Again, only seen on PAL tapes. (Might be on Region 2 DVDs there aswell), often being followed by the Walt Disney Home Entertainment logo, though the "Sorcerer Mickey" logo would be followed before 1996.

Editor's Note: None.
