1st Logo (2003-2006)

Music/Sounds: The end title theme from any show, or silent. On trailers of Masters of Horror and on DVD releases, it's the sound of a flame followed by a sound of a wind blowing was only heard. On films, it's the music's soundtrack.

Final Note: On August 31, 2006, IDT Corp. sold IDT Entertainment to Liberty Media for $186 Million. Immediately, IDT Entertainment was renamed to Starz Media. However, this 2nd logo was intact on the 2007 episodes "The Grass is Always Plaider" and "Everything's Coming Up Wubbzy?". As a result, they use the 2007 copyright notice to Bolder Media and Starz Media.
