Object Home Video[]

1st Logo (1983-1986)[]


Object Home Video (1989)

Logo: On a space background (similar to the one in the 2nd Rede Bandeirantes ident), we see "OBJECT HOME VIDEO", zooming out in a trail effect. The logo shines.


  • Before the promos, the logo flashes at the end. After the promos, a flash brings forth the logo.
  • On A Cake You Can Eat But Not Frost, the logo is in black and white to fit with the movie's film noir aesthetic.

Technique: Likely motion-controlled animation.

Music/Sounds: "Flash", by Keith Mansfield (the pilot theme for Press Your Luck and the theme of the Australian Thorn EMI Video logo) and an American-accented announcer (Stephen D. Wynn) says in the beginning of the tapes:

  • For object shows:"Welcome to a whole new world of Object fantasy."
  • For non-object shows: "Welcome to Object Home Video."

Availability: Ultra rare. This used on Hemdale Home Video and Hi-Tops Video releases. It was also seen on the first four original Object Home Video movies: Interrogating The Mushroom, A Cake You Can Eat But Not Frost, Victoria Gallagher series, and Filled With Scientific Facts. The "whole new world of Object fantasy" voiceover variant is used on all four despite the fact that only A Cake You Can Eat But Not Frost is an object movie.

2nd Logo (1983-)[]

Logo: On a white background, we see Abner the Baseball over the words “OBJECT HOME VIDEO”, except “Object” is orange and “Home Video” is black. This logo is used as the print logo used for today.


  • Abner is singing along with Trinity the Soap on the Object Music logo from 1994.
  • The logo was designed by co-founder Cameron Longree and was selected out of 350 designs.


Technique: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • In Partners in Quality variant in (1992-2004): A 2-note synth theme sustains with a 7 note theme.

Availability: Extremely rare. This was mainly used as a print logo on releases, but sometimes appeared on-screen instead of the next logo. This was used on these tapes from MGM/UA Home Video, Family Home Entertainment, Random House Home Video, Hemdale Home Video and Hi-Tops Video until August 1991. It was used on-screen from 1987 to 1992.

3rd Logo (USA; VHS, Laserdisc, CD-i, TVD, and DVD) (October 27, 1989-)[]

WARNING: This logo contains an old telephone number. Please do not try to dial it.

Logo: A white line, the half of the circle the bottom and a blue space background fades in and it's filled in to reveal Abner the Baseball, who stares with a closed-mouth smile as cluster of comets shoot over his head in opposite directions as he watches the comets in awe. Then, a large "Object", and colored yellow-orange, flies in and settles over Baseball. The white text "H O M E V I D E O" then fades in below, with Baseball between both words. He then stares at them before fading out.


  • Abner the Baseball was animated by Stephen Wynn.
  • Abner the Baseball was officially trademarked in November 4, 1993.


  • An early variant exists, used from 1989-1991. The difference is that the background is less realistic and darker, "Object" is set in Hermann (with the "O" representing the Sun), while "Home Video" is in a serif font, Abner the Baseball is in a different design and has and extra eyebrow, and the logo is still.
  • There is an extended variant where a white line draws along the bottom and eyes, mouth, a white outline circle, and baseball stitches draws itself and did the same thing for the normal logo, and after that, Abner the Baseball looking down at the line. At the end, all of the logo except for Baseball, the "HOME VIDEO" text, and the line disappear, and then the listed items disappear after it. The logo is also darker..
  • There is an ending variant where Abner stares at them, looks down below the line and then idles.

  • An "Collector's Edition" variant exists. Where the letters in the orange word "Collector's Edition", in the same font as the previous logo, but colored white, fly in all over the screen, but then they settle down to the center, and an oblong shape flies underneath the line, When the logo is complete, the oblong shape has chasing lights on it, like a marquee you see at a theater.
  • There is an "Object Classics" variant from 1994-present where a picture of Firey, Leafy, Bubble, Baseball (mascot), Nickel and Lightbulb, all standing together with big, goofy grins from the II S1 Ep1 assets, “flips” up and moves towards the screen. 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 O becomes a snowflake. In National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation: The Object Version (in which Object Home Video temporarily became a production company), right after the O becomes a snowflake, Firey pops up. Yin-Yang picks up the snowflake and throws it at Firey, who ducks. It then bounces off of the space background, which falls backwards to reveal a soundstage. The snowflake chops off the cameraman’s head (if you slow it down, the cameraman is revealed to be a camerawoman a.k.a Lollipop from BFB) and hits Santa Hat in the knee. Santa Hat screams “OW MY FREAKIN’ KNEE!!” before falling over. Yin says “This is why I don’t work with anybody except myself.” and it all cuts to black.
  • There is an "Object Concert Films" variant from 2001 and 2007 where the "HOME VIDEO" text is replaced with "CONCERT FILMS".

Technique: Computer animation, with Baseball in 2D. None for the still and early variants.

Music/Sounds: A warbly "outer space" synth scale, with a one synth ding then a dreamy synth ditty, a series of synth whooshes and 5 synth dings at the end while holding the last note. Also used on every character variant except Paintbrush. In the extended variant: a same warbly space synth and 4-note synth tune (which was done on the Roland D-50 synthesizer by using the "Staccato Heaven" patch) can be heard at the start when the line draws, followed by a 2-note synth horn tune, then silence, followed by another 2-note synth horn tune when the eyes and mouth is being drawn and a synthesized stinger, followed by a descending harp sound and a 5-note horn-like tune when the outline circle is being drawn and another synthesized stinger, followed by an ascending then descending clarinet tune when the red stiches followed by yet another synthesized stinger when it filled in to reveal Abner the Baseball and the same music from the logo plays afterwards. In the short variant: two synth notes, then an odd, rapid synth tune that sounds similar to cliché cartoon outer-space music.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Sometimes, the logo only has the synth ditty but without the whooshes.
  • On the "Paintbrush" variant: A 1-note synth theme sustains the opening note of Bandai Presents part of Bandai Emotion's 1984 theme, with chimes and wind blowing, then which is then interrupted by a metal guitar tune (the intro part from "Ten Ton Hammer" by Machine Head). An old fashioned-sounding explosion is heard for the remainder, when Abner appears at the end, the ending 7 synth fanfare sustains the ending notes of the MuppetVision 3D preshow was heard after Paintbrush faints forward.
  • In Object Classics Home Video Variant: Same music as the Hanna-Barbera Home Video logo.
  • In Object Classics Home Video promo Variant: same as the Hanna Barbera Home Video logo from the Hanna-Barbera Superstar Movies promo and Stephen Wynn saids "Object Classics, Available what ever videos are sold, from Object Home Video"

  • In Object Kids logo: A dreamy space-like theme same as the Nick Jr. Penguins ID with sounds of the objects running, and hugging
