10th Logo (1994-1999)


  • THIS LOGO IS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE VIDEO*

Logo: We see a dark, or navy blue background, and there is one of the following clip ons, and then, after they zoom in, a white flash appears, and there are the clip on words. After the announcer is done saying the words, it fades out.


Variant: On the two Disney Interactive clip-ons, the font is slightly different.


FX/SFX: The zoom in, and the white flash.

Music/Sounds: A whooshing sound, and following a white flash, and a short trumpet fanfare, and the announcer, Brian Cummings

saying one of the following clip ons.

Clip-ons:

  • Now Available On Videocassette
  • Now Available To Own On Videocassette
  • Coming Soon To Videocassette
  • Coming Soon To Own On Videocasette
  • Now Available On CD & Cassette
  • Stay Tuned After The Feature
  • Coming Soon To Theaters
  • Now In Theaters
  • Coming Soon From Disney Interactive
  • Now Available From Disney Interactive
  • Feature Presentation
  • Look for This Soundtrack

Music/Sounds Variant: On the Disney Interactive clip-ons (Now Available From and Coming Soon From) the orchestral hit is held for longer and what sounds like a choir note replaces the regular quiet note.

Availability: Uncommon now; was common in almost all of the 90s prints from the era.

Scare Factor: Same as the FP logo of the time, the flash combined with the somewhat scary music may scare over a few. But none to minimal (or maybe low) if you're used to it.


11th Logo (1996-2000/2001-2012)

Nickname: "Walt Disney Company Intro" "New Excitement From Disney" Logo: Carrying on from the usual introduction from WDHV at the time, we see a movie theater with the curtains coming up, revealing a screen with the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo, with Tinkerbell flying over and using her magic to start the preview for the movie. The screen on the movie theater comes up close to us, taking up the entire screen, and the trailer begins.

Trivia: It's nickname comes from the fact that it's part of the 1996 Walt Disney Company Intro you usually see at the beginning of VHS Disney tapes from 1996 to 2000.

Variants:

  • On the 1996 VHS Tapes of Oliver And Company & The Aristocats, the announcer says "Here's a special preview of Disney's next motion picture (or animated) masterpiece."
  • On some 1998 tapes like Hercules, The announcer says "Join us NOW for a special preview from Walt Disney Pictures!"

FX/SFX: The curtains coming up, Tinkerbell flying, the screen zooming into the screen. Seems to be a mix of live-action and 2D animation.

Cheesy Factor: The animation for Tinkerbell was obviously recycled from the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo.

Music/Sounds: The last few notes of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo, going into the music for the trailer. An announcer (Beau Weaver) can be heard saying, "Join us for a special preview from Walt Disney Pictures."

Availability: Seen on most Disney tapes of movies from 1996 to 2000. It's only on tapes with the Walt Disney Company Intro. It mostly appears in a May 2000 VHS of Toy Story.

Scare Factor: None.

Availability: Seen on 1999 through 2004 VHS releases and on most Disney DVDs. The "Disney & Pixar" variant only appears on Toy Story 2 and Monsters Inc. The "Disney Interactive" variant is seen on Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

Scare Factor: Just like the 1999 through 2004 Feature Presentation, it's low due to the sudden of the flat music.


13th Logo (2005, November 21, 2006-present, Early 2008-)

Logo: We see one of "Coming Soon" or "Now Available" clip-ons zooming out from the far right corner, and instead of a movie cinema tape, we get gears.
