Background: Object Home Video is an American home video company founded in 1988 by Robert J. Aronson (1953-2020), Stephen D. Wynn (1964-present) and Cameron Longree (1967-present) (creators of The Objects), along with Gabriel Morales (JustFaithSilly's father) and . 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. The company became successful and had a smaller, but well-known subsidiary called Shadowline Productions. The company was officially incorporated on December 19, 1989. The ObjectMusic Home Video label is retired in 2004. While Adult Object was partnered with Emotion, ObjectMusic was absorbed into the parent company. In 2012, Object Home Video was acquired by Wilson Pictures and its partner The Objects Studio.
Background Trivia: In 1995, Wynn and Longree were awarded the "Outstanding Achievement in Home Entertainment Award" from the National Association for Home Media, Inc on behalf of Object Home Video.
1st Logo (1983-1986)
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.

- For non-object shows: "Welcome to Object Home Video."
Availability: Ultra rare. This used on Hemdale Home Video, Wizard Video and Hi-Tops Video releases. It was also seen on the first three original Object Home Video movies: Interrogating The Mushroom With Torture, Victoria Gallagher in the Pit of Despair, and Filled With Scientific Facts. Despite them not being object movies, the "whole new world of Object fantasy" voiceover variant is used on all three.
