Aronson (1963-2020), Gabriel Morales (JustFaithSilly's father) and Cameron Longree (1967-present). However, they didn't have a logo until 1989. The company distributes object shows and other videos such as non-object animated shows, live action shows, tv movies, and concerts.

Nickname: "Baseball in Space"
Logo: On a navy blue space background, a white line draws along the bottom. Suddenly, an odd white outline circle, eyes, mouth, and baseball stitches draws itself, and it's filled in to reveal Baseball from Inanimate Insanity, who stares in awe as cluster of comets shoot over his head in opposite directions. Then, a large "Object", and colored yellow-orange, flies in and settles over Baseball. A white "Home Video" then fades in below, with Baseball between both words. He then stares at them, nods his head, looks down below the line and then idles. The background and "Object" disappears before Baseball and the text does.

- In the Adult Object Home Video logo in 1997-present, Baseball did the same idle and the words Object Home Video is still there, Then, the sky fades to red and a whistling noise is heard as Baseball saws a UFO crashes into him and explodes. and he turns evil and apparently crashes on the screen, causing Baseball to get crash onto the screen as he gives everyone a roar (he seemingly screams in protest of this explosive situation).

- There is a ”Object Play Along Video“ variant from 1999 where the words “Object” and colored yellow-orange flips word by word in the background and Baseball walks and stands right next to the word who stares in awe, and a colorful ribbon wipes in with blur and shines and reveals the words PLAY ALONG VIDEO and he does a Vanna White-like pose and winks at the audience.

When it is in position, there is a large, cheesy-looking flash, then the “OBJECT” script logo, in red and treated pretty badly, is “wiped” in from both sides with a cheesy-looking “sparkly trail” effect. Then, after that forms, A long, elongated rounded rectangle with the words “CLASSICS” on each side, flips up.
- There is a Christmas variant where Santa Hat is formed instead of Baseball. A snowball whooshes past him and transforms into Yin-Yang. They both hug as the words “a company of LX Home Video” fades in and the O becomes a snowflake.
FX/SFX: The line drawing itself in, Object drawing itself, Baseball appearing, and the comets and text flying over him.

The music is composed jointly by Andrew McCrorie-Shand, Luna Loud, and Sam Sharp.

Proceeding is the whoosh and "boom" of the UFO (cut from the Paintbrush variant), an alarm whooping, a red alert alarm and an ascending sci-fi whoosh. When Baseball is turning evil and roars a weird roaring scream is heard probably from him (cut from the Paintbrush variant).

Editor's Note: The animation is cheap, on top of the fact that the extended version has the error of having object that don't disappear when the logo ends (its worse considering they don't fade out), but it's a nice mix of traditional animation and computer animation.
Nickname: "The CBS-FOX Morph & Marquee"
Logo: The animation for the CBS/FOX Video logo animates as normal complete with music. However, all of a sudden the black stone background changes to a blue-red gradient background, then, as the CBS/FOX logo flies and rolls to the top left, rings and the letters in the orange word "Object", in the same font as the previous logo from 1995, but colored yellow-orange, fly in all over the screen, but then they settle down to the center, and an oblong shape flies in When the logo is complete, the oblong shape has chasing lights on it, like a marquee you see at a theater.
