1981-1982 (A)

Here are selected highlights from other walt disney home videocassettes

ID: On a blue background we see the words "HERE ARE SELECTED HIGHLIGHTS FROM OTHER WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEOCASSETTES" on the left corner of the screen in yellow text.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: This was typically seen at the end of Disney films released on video at the time, either for sale or rental. In general, it's not that easy to find; it depends on the tape label, the date it was printed in (a print date is usually seen on the spine of the videotape). A few examples are the very first printing of the 1982 VHS edition of A Walt Disney Christmas, and the 1981 VHS editions of Pollyanna and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh.

1981-1982 (B)

Also Available From Walt Disney Home Video

ID: On a black background we see the Walt Disney Home Video logo (with the Sorcerer Mickey) with the words "Also available from" above; everything is colored in tealish grey and outlined in white. If you look closely, you can see the copyright date below the logo.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Same as the 1st ID.

Editor's Note: The outlining has been criticized as looking cheap to say the least.

1985-1986

Coming Soon From Walt Disney Home Video (1986)

Bumper: On a black background, we see the following white clip-on texts in a plain white font.

Clip-ons:

  • COMING SOON (In Arial Narrow font)
  • Coming Soon From WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO (In a bold Helvetica Font)
  • Now on Walt Disney Home Video... (In a Slanted Times New Roman font)
  • COMING SOON FROM TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO (with "TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO" having in its own logo and it was colored turquoise)

Variants:

  • On the "Coming Soon From WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO..." clip-on, it was on a black-blue gradient background.
  • On the 1986 VHS release of My Science Project, the text is dark blue.
  • After the first trailer plays, a clip of The Sorcerer's Apprentice from WDAS’s Fantasia plays. The music from the short is heard, along with the same announcer from the "Walt Disney and You" promo plays, and an announcer says "And here's what's coming soon!"

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare written all over it for all bumpers. The original "COMING SOON" version is seen on the original video releases of Return to Oz and The Small One. The "Coming Soon From WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO" clip-on is only known to appear on the 1986 VHS release of One Little Indian, among other releases of the time. The "Now on Walt Disney Home Video..." clip-on can be spotted on VHS reissues of Disney films from 1986 such as that of Return to Witch Mountain. The "COMING SOON FROM TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO" bumper can be seen on the VHS release of Wildside: Buffalo Who?.

Editor's Note: This is the very first Disney ID to contain multiple clip-ons, way long before it became famous later on in the decade. This is the last known Disney ID of any kind in U.S./Canada that didn't feature any voiceover on all of the bumpers until 2006. It was known by some as a precursor to the 1987-89 bumpers due to the similar style in layout.

1986

ID: Just the 1986-87 Touchstone Home Video logo animation without any changes.

FX/SFX: Same as the 1986-87 Touchstone Home Video logo.

Music/Sounds: The 1986 Touchstone Home Video logo fanfare, accompanied by Brian Cummings saying "And now, here's a look at the Touchstone Home Video smash-comedy hit: Down and Out In Beverly Hills." (Off Beat) or "From Touchstone Home Video, their special preview of the hit feature starring Judge Reinhold and Meg Tilly: Off Beat!" (Down and Out in Beverly Hills).

Availability: Rare; it was seen only on the original 1986 VHS tapes of Down and Out In Beverly Hills and Off Beat, following the company’s video dealer screen of the period.

Editor’s Note: This is the very first Disney ID in U.S./Canada to contain a voiceover.

1987-1989

Bumper: On a black background, we see the following plain clip-ons in a white Helvetica font.

Clip-ons:

  • AND NOW, A PREVIEW OF ANOTHER BLOCKBUSTER HIT FROM TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO (Only seen on the 1988 VHS releases of Hello Again and Shoot to Kill)
  • ASK YOUR VIDEO DEALER ABOUT THIS HIT TITLE, ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO
  • AND NOW, A PREVIEW OF ANOTHER BLOCKBUSTER HIT. (Only seen on the 1988 VHS release of The Rescue)
  • PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT (Only seen on the original 1987 VHS release of Outrageous Fortune)
  • FEATURE PRESENTATION

Variants:

  • A variant of the "Ask Your Video Dealer..." clip-on exists, where the text is mostly in lowercase letters and instead reads "Ask your video dealer now about this hit title also from Touchstone Home Video." The same male announcer says the text, only his tone is different. This version appears on Adventures in Babysitting.
  • A variant of the Touchstone "And Now, a Preview..." clip-on exists, where the text doesn't scroll up and is in an all caps Impact font. This version appears on the 1988 VHS release of Hello Again.
  • Feature Presentation sub-variants:
    • On the 1988 VHS releases of Can't Buy Me Love and Hello Again, the letters are in a different font and italicized.
    • On the 1988 VHS releases of Adventures in Babysitting, a special animated variant is used. The text is the same as the 1st variant, but in gold. It then rotates around once, revealing its interlocked with the film's logo, and thus rests on that. The logo then shines and flies away into the left side of the background.
  • On the “Public Service Announcement“ variant, the background is orange red and the text is bolder.

FX/SFX: None for the Feature Presentation clip-on. The other two scroll up.

Music/Sounds: Often, it just had an announcer saying the following clip-ons:

  • And Now, A Preview: “And now, a preview of another blockbuster hit from Touchstone Home Video.”
  • Ask Your Video Dealer: “Ask your video dealer now about this hit title, also from Touchstone Home Video.“
  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation from Touchstone Home Video."

Music/Sounds Variants (FP only):

  • The 1988 VHS release of Good Morning, Vietnam had the announcer saying "And now, our feature presentation, Good Morning, Vietnam."
  • On the 1988-89 VHS releases of Three Men and a Baby, Shoot to Kill, The Rescue and Big Business, the announcer says "And now, our feature presentation."
  • On the 1988 VHS release of Tough Guys, a rock-and-roll tune plays, and the announcer says "And now, from Touchstone Home Video, our feature presentation, Tough Guys."
  • On the 1988 VHS releases of Hello Again and Can't Buy Me Love, the song "Real Wild Child" by Iggy Pop, notably featured in the preceding trailer for Adventures in Babysitting, is heard in the background.
    • A similar variant appears at the beginning of the 1988 VHS release of Adventures in Babysitting, except the excerpt from the previously mentioned song is slightly muffled and the announcer instead says "And now, our feature presentation from Touchstone Home Video, Adventures in Babysitting."
  • The 1988 VHS release of Outrageous Fortune has the announcer saying "And now, our feature presentation from Touchstone Home Video, Outrageous Fortune."

The announcer for the "Feature Presentation" variant is Brian Cummings (later credited as the voice of Sokolov in the PlayStation 2 video games Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater and Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence), while the "Also From Touchstone" and "And Now, a Preview" variants are announced by Grant Goodeve (later credited as the voice of Wolf O’Donnell in the Nintendo GameCube video game Star Fox: Assault). On the other hand, the “Public Service Announcement“ variant is completely silent.

Availability: Rare. It was only seen on some Touchstone Home Video tapes from 1987 to 1989, such as D.O.A., Good Morning, Vietnam, Three Men and a Baby, Tin Men, Can't Buy Me Love, and Tough Guys.

Editor's Note: On the "Ask Your Video Dealer" variant, there's a period, but the comma is gone. This ID in general looks very plain and looks like it was done in just 2 minutes. In fairness, these were early forays into IDs for Disney, and they certainly got better over time. It's possible this was just a placeholder for the next ID. Also, the appearance of the FP text is awkwardly delayed on select VHS copies of Good Morning, Vietnam to make room for the announcer on it; had the regular version been extended just a little bit without the awkward delay, it would've been just fine.

April 18th, 1989-September 18th, 1992

Bumper: On a black background, we see either one of the clip-ons below appear in a font depending on the bumper. It may either fly up and down, respectively, and then shine, fly up and then shine, fly in from the right and shine, or it may simply shine while otherwise being still.

Clip-ons:

  • ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE
  • Coming To Theatres
  • Coming On Videocassette
  • Now On Videocassette
  • Also on VIDEO
  • ALSO FROM WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO (This was seen on the 1991 VHS release of Three Men and a Little Lady)
  • Coming This March To Videocassette (This was seen on the 1992 demo tapes of Paradise and The Doctor.)
  • STAY TOONED
  • BEHIND THE SCENES
  • FEATURE PRESENTATION

Variants:

  • On the "ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE" clip-on, the text "TOUCHSTONE" shines differently and didn't have any sparkle effects.
  • Sometimes the phrase will already be in place and will simply shine.
  • On the "Also on VIDEO" clip-on, the text is in a different font. There are no sparkle effects on it.
  • On the "BEHIND THE SCENES" and "FEATURE PRESENTATION" clip-ons, the background is grey and the letters zoom one by one instead of flying. There are no sparkle effects in it.
  • On the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" clip-on, the text is in gold, but on 1992 VHS tapes it used the normal black background and orange text.
  • On the "STAY TOONED" clip-on, it is on a different grey background, the text is in a gold-red gradient Balloon font, and instead of shining, a flash forms behind them, and spawns a shadow.
  • On the "Coming This March To Videocassette" clip-on, the text zooms in from the right top corner instead of connecting, and the text is more two dimensional.

FX/SFX: The animation of the clip-on.

Music/Sounds: The first eight notes of "Great Ovation" by Steve Gray from the Bruton Music library, as heard in most every other Disney bumper from the early 1990s, with an announcer (Brian Cummings, the same announcer as the previous two bumpers), announces one of the following:

  • Coming To Theatres: "Coming to theaters from Walt Disney Pictures."
  • Coming On Videocassette: "Coming on videocassette."
  • Now On Videocassette: "Don't miss this timeless Disney classic now on videocassette."
  • Also From Touchstone: "Ask your video dealer about these hit titles, also from Touchstone Home Video."
  • Also on Video: "Ask your video dealer about these hit titles."
  • Also from Walt Disney Home Video: "Coming from Walt Disney Home Video"
  • Stay Tooned: "Stay tuned for the most fun ever on home video!"
  • Behind the Scenes: "Behind the scenes with Touchstone Home Video's Heartbreak Hotel."
  • Feature Presentation: "And now, for our feature presentation!"

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The version of the intro of “Great Ovation” used for the 1989 and 1990 editions of the “ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE” clip-on along with the “STAY TOONED” and “FEATURE PRESENTATION” clip-ons sounds more intense and fades out earlier than normal.
  • Coming To Theatres:
    • On the 1991 VHS of White Fang, Brian Cummings says "Coming to theaters soon."
  • Coming On Videocassette:
    • The 1992 VHS release of So Dear to My Heart has the same music, but shortened with Mark Elliot saying "Coming soon from Walt Disney Home Video."
    • Sometimes, Brian Cummings will say "Coming soon on videocassette".
    • On the demo VHS release of The Rocketeer, Billy Bathgate and the original VHS releases of The Doctor and Paradise, Brian Cummings says "Coming from Touchstone Home Video."
    • On the 1991 VHS release of White Fang, Brian Cummings quickly says "Coming from Walt Disney Home Video."
    • On the 1991 VHS release of Mr. Destiny, only the sparkling/shining animation is shown and Brian Cummings says, "Coming on videocassette."
  • Now On Videocassette:
    • On the 1991 VHS release of Shipwrecked, only the sparkling animation is shown and Brian Cummings enthusiastically says "Now on videocassette."
  • Also from Touchstone:
    • On 1989 Touchstone Home Video tapes, Tom Kane, says "Ask your video dealer about this hit title, also from Touchstone Home Video".
    • On 1991 Touchstone Home Video tapes, Brian Cummings says "Ask your video dealer about this hit title...from Touchstone Home Video".
    • On the 1990 Laserdisc release of Dead Poets Society, no announcer is heard.
  • On the "Behind the Scenes" clip-on, the last seven notes of Steve Gray's "Great Ovation" from the Bruton Music library-the same song the 1989 FP was sampled from (Which was also used for the WPIX Movie Greats ID) is heard instead.
  • The "Also from Walt Disney Home Video" clip-on used a different fanfare.

Availability: Rare, as it was only used for three years. It was first seen on the first VHS release of Cocktail. It is also seen on many VHS releases from Touchstone Home Video and Hollywood Pictures Home Video afterwards. It was last seen on the 1992 American VHS release of Truly, Madly, Deeply. It is also seen on the 1991 VHS releases of Shipwrecked, White Fang, Robin Hood, The Rescuers Down Under, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and The Brave Little Toaster. Also seen on the original 1990-92 VHS copies of Billy Bathgate, Deceived, Paradise, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, The Rocketeer, Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken and What About Bob?. This was preserved on numerous Touchstone Home Video VHS reissues well into the late 1990s, even with a later FBI warning screen replacing an earlier one, as seen on a 1992 VHS reissue of Pretty Woman. Also found on Regal Home Video VHS releases in the Philippines, such as Aswang. Surprisingly, it has also appeared on the 1990 Laserdisc release of Dead Poets Society. The "ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE" variant was first used on the 1989 VHS release of Beaches. The "Coming To Theaters", "Coming On Videocassette" and "Now On Videocassette" clip-ons were more commonly seen on titles from Disney proper, such as the 1990 Walt Disney Classics VHS issue of Peter Pan and the original 1992 VHS release of So Dear to My Heart.

Editor's Note: The sudden zooming of the words and the announcer might catch some off guard, and the font of the text may spook some, but it's pretty tame (unless you're watching a Regal Home Video release since the "R of Doom" may follow this ID), though the next ID is a little more intense.

1990-1992

Touchstone-HV Fav-Hit-Movies

Bumper: Same as the 1987 Touchstone Home Video logo, but the golden yellow words "NOW YOU CAN OWN YOUR FAVORITE HIT MOVIES..." are typed in above the logo.

1990-1991

ID: Just the 1987-2001 Touchstone Home Video logo animating.

Variant: A short version exists, starting at the point where the light flashes over the text.

FX/SFX: Same as the 1987-2001 Touchstone Home Video logo.

Music/Sounds: The 1986 Touchstone Home Video logo fanfare, with Brian Cummings saying "Now you can own these hit titles from Touchstone Home Video."

ID: Just the 1986-2001 Walt Disney Home Video logo, appearing in full or short.

FX/SFX: Same as the 1986-2001 Walt Disney Home Video logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the 1986-2001 Walt Disney Home Video logo, along with Brian Cummings slowly saying "Coming from Walt Disney Home Video".

Music/Sounds Variant: On the 1992 VHS releases of So Dear to My Heart and The Rescuers, the first eight notes of "Great Ovation" are heard instead, only shortened. Mark Elliott (instead of Brian Cummings) says "Now available on videocassette" (So Dear to My Heart) or "And available now on videocassette" (The Rescuers).

Availability: Rare. The short version is seen on the 1991 WDC VHS release of The Jungle Book (1961), and the full version is seen on the original 1991-92 VHS copies of DuckTales: The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp and Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken. The shortened version also appears on So Dear to My Heart and The Rescuers.

May 3rd, 1991

Coming to Theaters from Walt Disney Pictures

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words "COMING TO THEATERS FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES" in white. "COMING TO THEATERS" and "WALT DISNEY PICTURES" are above and below "FROM" respectively.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Mark Elliot provides the voice-over.

Availability: This can only be seen on the 1991 Walt Disney Classics VHS edition of The Jungle Book.

Editor’s Note: This could be considered a spiritual successor to the 1987-89 IDs due to its generic layout.

July 12th-September 20th, 1991

ID: Just the shortened version of the Walt Disney Classics logo, starting with the text writing itself (Robin Hood and The Brave Little Toaster) or the second spark appearing to color the “CLASSICS” typeface (The Rescuers Down Under).

(The Rescuers Down Under).

Availability: Seen on the first pressings of the 1991 VHS tapes of Robin Hood, The Brave Little Toaster and The Rescuers Down Under.

November 22nd, 1991-August 17th, 1999

Bumper: On a lilac blue gradient background, we see one of the clip-ons below in a Laser LET font.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming to Videocassette
  • Coming Soon To Videocassette (This can be found on select VHS copies of The Lion King; others use the above clip-on)
  • Coming to Home Video
  • Coming to Home Video, Coming on Video Cassette This Summer (This can be found on later VHS copies of 101 Dalmatians)
  • Coming This Fall to Home Video (This can be found on later VHS copies of 101 Dalmatians as well as the 1992 WDC VHS copy of The Great Mouse Detective)
  • Coming Only to Theatres this 1992 Holiday Season (This can be found on the 1992 WDC VHS copies of Beauty and the Beast and 101 Dalmatians)
  • Now on Home Video
  • Now on Videocassette
  • Special Previews, After our feature from Walt Disney Home Video (This can be found on earlier VHS copies of Beauty and the Beast)
  • Feature Presentation

Variants:

  • Sometimes the clip-on will appear underneath the red Walt Disney script, in place of "HOME VIDEO" on the logo.
  • Very rarely, a dark blue background will be used instead of the standard lilac blue gradient background. This has been spotted with the "Feature Presentation" clip-on.
  • The "Feature Presentation" clip-on writes itself on the screen.
  • Later VHS copies of Beauty and the Beast have only one preview following the film, so as such the "s" in "Previews" is omitted.

FX/SFX: None, or the clip-on writing itself.

Music/Sounds: Either of these plays: the first eight notes of "Great Ovation", a trumpet note, following with a triumphant fanfare ("Fanfare to the Modern Man 3" by Richard Hill, from the Bruton Music library, album BRG 09 - The Will To Win), a remix of the 1986 WDHV theme, or the 1991 WDHV theme. Brian Cummings or Mark Elliot announces one of the following:

  • Coming to Videocassette: "Coming soon to videocassette."
  • Coming Soon To Videocassette: "And now, coming soon to videocassette."
  • Coming to Home Video: "Coming from Walt Disney Home Video."
  • Coming to Home Video, Coming on Videocassette This Summer: "Stay tuned for a preview of two new Disney classics coming to home video. Coming on videocassette this summer."
  • Coming This Fall to Home Video: "And, coming this fall to home video."
  • Coming Only to Theatres this 1992 Holiday Season: "Coming only to movie theaters this 1992 holiday season: the newest Disney animated classic from Walt Disney Pictures."
  • Now on Home Video: "Now on Walt Disney Home Video."
  • Now on Videocassette: "Now on videocassette."
  • Special Previews, After our feature from Walt Disney Home Video: "Be sure to stay tuned after our feature, for a look at more special previews from Walt Disney Home Video."
  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation."

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • Sometimes, only the announcer is heard.
  • Coming to Home Video:
    • On the 1992 WDC VHS release of The Rescuers, the opening to “Great Ovation” is shortened and Mark Elliot says “Coming soon from Walt Disney Home Video.”
  • Special Previews, After our feature from Walt Disney Home Video:
    • On the single-preview variant, Mark Elliot says "Be sure to stay tuned after our feature, for a look at another special preview from Walt Disney Home Video."
  • Feature Presentation:
    • A variant tailored for Disney tapes which open with the "Something New and Exciting from Disney" intro--which often lead into a special preview of upcoming releases from Disney--had Beau Weaver announcing "Thanks for joining us for this special preview. And now, our feature presentation!". The music's volume is often lowered a bit in this version. It was first used on the 1996 VHS release of Toy Story and last used on the 1998 WDMC VHS release of Hercules.
    • On the 1992 WDC VHS release of Beauty and the Beast, the first note of the music is cut.
    • From the 1997 WDMC VHS release of Fun and Fancy Free through Hercules, half of the first note of the 1996 variant is cut.

Availability: Pretty rare for a majority of the clip-ons mentioned, as they were only used in the early 90s.

  • The “Feature Presentation” variant premiered on the third VHS reissue of The Rescuers Down Under from November 1991. It also appeared on subsequent Walt Disney Classics VHS tapes beginning with later copies of the 1992 WDC VHS release of 101 Dalmatians (1961) and the 1992-94 WDC VHS releases of Beauty and the Beast (1991), Pinocchio, Aladdin (1992), and The Fox and the Hound, as well as numerous Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection VHS tapes such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Dumbo, Robin Hood, The Lion King (1994), Pocahontas, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Hercules, Bambi, Sleeping Beauty, and The Jungle Book. The final VHS tapes to use this were Belle’s Tales of Friendship and Hercules: Zero to Hero, as both specials were released on the same day. This variant can also be seen on most 1999 VHS releases, such as the 1999 WDMC VHS releases of 101 Dalmatians (1961)The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. ToadMary Poppins, and The Rescuers, as well as The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue, which is rather odd considering that the other bumpers used on those VHS tapes were based off the 1994 FP ID. It was also seen on the original VHS releases of some non-WDC, non-WDMC, live-action and non-Disney Animated Canon films released by Disney, such as Heidi, Toy Story101 Dalmatians (the 1996 live-action remake), The Santa ClauseGordy, and A Goofy Movie.

Editor's Note: Some viewers may be startled by Mark Elliot's V/O coming in without warning on the 101 Dalmatians variant and Brian Cummings’ V/O on the Beauty and the Beast variants, but they’re otherwise harmless. The fanfare used for the music variant, meanwhile, has been positively described as catchy.

Variants:

  • On the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" version, the text zooms in and connects.
  • On numerous VHS tapes that were released in 1992, most of the outlining of "FEATURE PRESENTATION" is blacked out and the text is tinted in white. This appears on the 1992 VHS releases of Father of the Bride, Newsies, So Dear to My Heart, Medicine Man, Sister Act, Paradise, Deceived, Billy Bathgate, The Doctor, A Woman Under the Influence, Shipwrecked, White Fang, Return to Snowy River, The Rocketeer, Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, Anne of Green Gables and Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.
  • On the "FEATURE PROGRAM" version, the text only zooms in, and in a different font
  • On the "NOW AVAILABLE TO OWN ON VIDEOCASSETTE" one, the text is in a different font.
  • An extremely rare sub-variant of the "Now Available on Videocassette" ID features a still version of the 1993 "WDHV Presents" logo, which fades to the ID.
  • On the 1992 VHS reissues of Paradise, Deceived, Billy Bathgate, and The Doctor, the "Hit Movies You Can Own" ID animates like the "Feature Program" ID, except in a slower page and the “HIT MOVIES You Can Own” text looks thicker and includes a drop shadow.
  • Yet another incredibly rare sub-variant of the "Own this BIG HIT" ID features the 1993 "WDHV Presents" logo fading to the ID in a similar fashion to the era's "Now Available on Videocassette" ID, with an enthusiastic Brian Cummings saying "Now you can own this big hit!". This can be seen on the 1993 VHS releases of Not Quite Human and Chips the War Dog.
  • Demo VHS tapes used a Korinna font instead.
  • The demo VHS of Super Mario Bros. features a special bumper with the movie's logo on top, and "BEHIND THE SCENES" below it.
  • On the "Stay Tuned For More Great Scenes From The Very Best Of The Ed Sullivan Show After Our Feature" clip-on, the text is light blue, and "The Very Best of The Ed Sullivan Show" is yellow.
  • "Feature Program" clip-on variants:
    • On some releases, it takes place on a green background, and in a Dawncastle font.
      • On the 1994 VHS release of Muppet Sing-Alongs: It's Not Easy Being Green a dramatic trumpet theme plays, the words are replaced with "STAY TUNED..." and an announcer says "Stay tuned after the show to find out about more great Muppet entertainment". The words fade out and "FEATURE PROGRAM" fades in, then the announcer says "And now...Get ready to sing with all your favorite Muppets."
    • On Disney's Haunted Mansion tapes, we start with an image of a tree, full moon, and black clouds in a gray background. After a second, the text "Feature Program" in an orange "Matterofact" font with a dark green border appears
      • There is a variant with the text "Stay Tuned..." instead of "Feature Program". Instead of "And now, our feature program! Nyuh-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!", the announcer says "Stay tuned for more Halloween fun! Nyuh-HA-HA-HA-HA!!!!!!" This was seen between cartoons in Disney's Haunted Mansion tapes.
    • On Disney's Happy Holidays, we see an image of a Christmas tree and the white words "Feature Program" in a starry background, similar to the Walt Disney Mini-Classics logo.
    • On Spot tapes, it takes place on a white background, and when we see Spot looking at the left side of the screen at the bottom-right corner of the screen, at the upper left-hand corner of the screen is the words "Feature Program" in black and in the Times New Roman font.
    • On Fraggle Rock tapes, we see multi-colored text on the bottom right of the screen with stone backgrounds and the "Fraggle Rock with the Muppets" logo on the top left.
    • On most Alvin and the Chipmunks tapes, the text is in a Revue font and it takes place on Dave's camera room.
    • On some Alvin and the Chipmunks tapes and Parachute Express: Come Sing with Us, it takes place on the Jay Ward Buena Vista background, and the text is in a different gold font.
    • On Superhuman Samurai Syber-Squad tapes, it takes place on a background like that of the VHS opening title card, we see the words "FEATURE PROGRAM" in a font like that of the episode opening cards following the intro.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: As with the Laser ID from 1991-1999, either of these plays: the first eight notes of "Great Ovation", a trumpet note, following with a triumphant fanfare ("Fanfare to the Modern Man 3" by Richard Hill, from the Bruton Music library, album BRG 09 - The Will To Win), the Jim Henson Video theme, or the 1991 WDHV theme.

  • Coming to Videocassette:
    • On the first printing of the 1992 VHS release of Father of the Bride, the opening notes of "Great Ovation" are low pitched and slower. In addition, Grant Goodeve instead says "Don't miss these exciting upcoming releases that you'll find at your favorite video rental store."
    • On 1994 VHS tapes like The Three Musketeers and The Mighty Ducks, the announcer says "Coming soon to videocassette."
  • Own this Big Hit:
    • Sometimes, Brian Cummings says "Don't miss owning this big hit." Shown on the 1993 VHS re-prints of Honey I Blew Up the Kid, Newsies, Consenting Adults, and Sarafina!.

Availability: Pretty rare for a majority of the clip-ons mentioned, as they were only used in the early 90s.

1992 (A)

Walt-Disney-HV These-Hit-Titles

Bumper: On a black background, we see the white text "NOW YOU CAN OWN THESE HIT TITLES..." fade in. A few seconds later, the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video logo fades in below the text, and shines.

FX/SFX: The fade in, the shining of the text.

Music/Sounds: The first eight notes of "Great Ovation" with Brian Cummings saying "Now you can own these hit titles, from Walt Disney Home Video.".

Availability: Seen on 1992 VHS reprints of Shipwrecked, Anne of Green Gables, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, White Fang, The Rocketeer, Return to Snowy River, and Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken.

Editor’s Note: The black background, along with the sudden appearances of the text and WDHV logo and the voiceover, may catch numerous viewers off guard.

1992 (B)

ID: Just either the short version of the 1991 Hollywood Pictures Home Video logo or the unaltered Buena Vista Home Video logo.

FX/SFX: The glow on the HPHV sphinx dying or the BVHV logo shining.

Editor's Note: A tame bumper despite some off-putting factors such as the Jim Henson logo following this.

July 17th-October 30th, 1992

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words, "Coming To Theatres For Thanksgiving 1992 From Walt Disney Pictures". This was shown after a preview for Aladdin.

Availability: Rare. This appears on the 1992 WDC VHS copies of The Great Mouse Detective and Beauty and the Beast.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on the 1993 VHS copies of WDAS's Pinocchio and Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey.

Editor’s Note: The creative font of the text helps make this ID stand out from the other clip-ons of the period.

October 1st, 1993 (V2)

Coming to Theatres from Walt Disney Pictures

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words "COMING TO THEATRES FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES" in white. "FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES" is arranged below "COMING TO THEATRES". This was shown before a preview for The Lion King.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. This was exclusively used on earlier copies of the 1993 WDC VHS release of WDAS’s Aladdin.

October 1st, 1993-March 4th, 1994

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words "COMING FOR SUMMER 1994 FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES" in red.

FX/SFX: None.

Variant: On the 1994 WDC VHS release of The Fox and the Hound, the color on the text is a little brighter and the text reads "COMING TO THEATERS FOR SUMMER 1994 FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES."

Music/Sounds: None (first variant) or the end theme of the preview (second variant).

Availability: The former variant is seen on the 1993 VHS copies of Aladdin and The Muppet Christmas Carol, and the latter variant is seen on the 1994 WDC VHS release of The Fox and the Hound. On all three tapes, it follows a preview for The Lion King.

Editor's Note: The darkness of the text against the black background has startled a few, and it also makes the text more difficult to read, but it's considered harmless otherwise.

1994-2003

Nickname: "Flashbang"

Bumper: We see a white flash, after which one of the below clip-ons zoom out in a blue color. When it settles, another flash occurs and the background is now blue as well as the clip-on being white. After a few seconds, we fade out.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon To Theaters

  • Feature Presentation
  • Feature Program
  • Previews

Variants:

  • On the 1995 VHS release of Street Sharks: The Gene Slamming Begins, the "Now Available To Own On Videocassette" clip-on variant abruptly starts just before the second flash occurs. This is more than likely due to a splicing error.
  • On both of the Disney Interactive clip-ons, the font is slightly different.
  • On the Video & DVD, "Feature Program," and rental clip-ons, the text zooms in and the font is different.
  • On the "Now Appearing" clip-on, it is a still image.
  • The "Stay Tuned After The Feature" clip-on, after a few seconds, fades to the "Feature Presentation" clip-on, with the blue background still in place.
  • "Feature Presentation" clip-on variants:
    • Earlier releases had the text already white when it zooms out.
    • On the 1995 VHS release of Gargoyles: The Movie, the yellow-orange gradient words are on a black background.
    • On the 1997 VHS releases of Schoolhouse Rock, the yellow and red words are on a white background.

  • "Feature Program" clip-on variants
    • On Disney's Love Tales tapes, the text is in a pink Disney's Love Tales font.
    • On Sailor Moon tapes, the text is in a black-rose gradient font, and it was set on a bright, bubbly background mirroring the episode title card to a Sailor Moon episode.
    • On Disney's Sweetheart Stories, the text is in a pink Disney's Sweetheart Stories font on a lavender fabric background.
    • On Timon and Pumbaa tapes, it takes place on a green background, and the text is in a orange jungle-like font.
    • On Quack Pack, Bone Chillers and Disney's Doug tapes, the text is orange, and in lowercase.
      • On Disney's Doug, we see Doug holding a giant pencil in a white background.
      • On Bone Chillers, we see Edgar Allan Poe High School surrounded by bats at night.
      • On Quack Pack, we see Donald Duck is sitting on a green chair, staring at the viewer.

FX/SFX: The zooming out, and the white flashes.

Music/Sounds: A whooshing sound when the first flash occurs, followed by a 'crash' when the second flash occurs which then morphs into a quiet note. The announcer, Brian Cummings, announces the following clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon to Theaters: "Coming soon to theatres."
  • Now in Theaters: "Now in theatres."
  • Coming Soon to Own on Videocassette: "Coming soon to own on videocassette."
  • Now Available to Own on Videocassette: "Now available to own on videocassette."

  • Now Available to Own on Video and DVD: "Now available to own on video and DVD."
  • Coming Soon to Own on Video and DVD: "Coming soon to own on video and DVD."
  • Now Available to Own on DVD: "Now available to own on DVD."
  • Now Available to Rent on Video: "Now available to rent on video."
  • Coming Soon to Rent on Video: "Coming soon to rent on video."
  • Stay Tuned After the Feature: "Stay tuned after the feature for more great previews. And now, our feature presentation."
  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation!"
  • Feature Program: "And now, our feature program."
  • Previews: "Join us, for the following previews!"

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the Disney Interactive clip-ons, the orchestral hit is held for longer and what sounds like a choir note replaces the regular quiet note.
  • On the 1998 VHS release of G.I. Jane, during the Now Available on CD & Cassette clip-on, the announcer says "Now available on CD and cassette from Hollywood Records."
  • On the Video and DVD and rental clip-ons as well as the "Previews" variant, the intro to "Great Ovation" is heard.
  • On the Feature Program clip-on, the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video jingle is used.
  • The Now Appearing clip-on is silent.
  • Stay Tuned:
    • On the Crow variant, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for the last on-camera interview with Brandon Lee, which includes never-before-seen footage. And now, our feature presentation."
    • On the Crow: City of Angels variant, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for a special Brandon Lee tribute, which includes never-before-seen footage. And now, see what's available on CD and cassette."
    • On the 1996 VHS release of The Rock and the 1997 Widescreen VHS release of From Dusk Till Dawn, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for a very special message. And now, our feature presentation." A similar variant exists on the 1997 VHS releases of Scream and Trainspotting, but without "very".
    • On the 1995 VHS releases of Tall Tale and Camilla, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for another great preview. And now, our feature presentation."

Availability: Common. It can be seen on almost all Disney, Buena Vista, Miramax, Dimension, Touchstone, and Hollywood VHS tapes issued during the mid-late-Nineties. This continued to be used until 2003 on Dimension Home Video tapes such as the 2002-03 VHS releases of Halloween: Resurrection and Confessions of Sorority Girls.

Editor's Note: Unlike some of the other bumpers by Disney, this one is not received particularly well. Adding to that, why was the "Now Appearing" clip-on followed by a promo for CBS' The King of Queens (owned by Sony Pictures), when it would have made more sense to promote a Buena Vista property?

1993-2000

Bumper: On a different colored background, usually with a spotlight shining down from the right top corner to the left bottom corner, we see the clip-on text in a jumbled-up cartoon-like redo of the Biondi font. The logo varies by variant.

March 3rd, 1995

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words "COMING NEXT SUMMER FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES" or "COMING JUNE 23, 1995 FROM WALT DISNEY PICTURES" in a turquoise or cerulean font used for Pocahontas.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None or the end of the song "Colors of the Wind" of the Pocahontas trailer.

Availability: This can only be seen on the 1995 WDMC VHS copies of The Lion King.

1996-2000

Nicknames: "Walt Disney Company Intro", "Disworld", "New & Exciting from Disney"

Bumper A: We open with a clip from the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo (the 1990 variant, specifically), beginning when the "Walt Disney" text is revealed. Afterwards, a montage of the following clips is shown:

  • The Hunchback of Notre Dame: Clopin laughing and tossing down a ball of smoke.
  • Toy Story: Woody and Buzz "falling with style."
  • Disneyland's Indiana Jones Adventure attraction: Indy swings on a rope while a rolling boulder races toward the guests.
  • The exterior of the Palace Theatre in New York City, advertising the Broadway production of Beauty and the Beast, followed by a moment from the show itself.
  • A little boy and his father watching television, the screen showing an ABC bumper in motion (which is described here).
  • Bambi: Bambi meeting Flower.
  • Hercules: Herc awkwardly gesturing.
  • Scenes from at the Hunchback of Notre Dame stage show at the Disney-MGM Studios and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction at the Magic Kingdom.

Afterwards, we fade into the first three versions of the below:

Bumper B:

  • Coming to Theaters: 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.
  • Coming to Videocassette: We see a TV in a living room, showing the scene from Fantasia with Mickey Mouse putting the sorcerer's hat on, and then it cuts to a family watching the TV happily, and cuts one more time to the TV, with the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video logo on the screen. The screen comes closer to us, showing the start of the trailer.
  • Walt Disney World: We see an overview shot of Epcot, side views of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and Dumbo the Flying Elephant, and the PeopleMover near Spaceship Earth. It ends with the animation of Tinkerbell waving her wand also used in similar bumpers at the time as well as the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo, who transitions us to the ad in question.
  • Disney Interactive: We see a clip of a kid playing a Disney Interactive Animated Storybook game. Tinkerbell flies over and changes it to the Disney Interactive logo, which flashes on a moving purple space background with black text, before changing the background to black with white text.
  • Feature Presentation: Just the standard Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo without any modifications.

Trivia: One of its nicknames comes from the fact that it's part of the 1996 Walt Disney Company Intro usually seen at the front of 1996-2000 Disney VHS tapes.

Variants (Bumper A):

  • There is a prototype variant where the clips are different. They are:
    • Pocahontas: Pocahontas and Meeko go down a waterfall on their canoe.
    • A shot of the entrance to the Magic Kingdom in Florida.
    • An alternate take of the same moment from the Broadway stage production of Beauty and the Beast.
    • A mother watching TV with her two children.
    • A rapid-fire montage of Cinderella Castle with fireworks in the sky, Buzz unloading his wings in Toy Story, the "Be Our Guest" sequence in Beauty and the Beast, guests going down the final drop on Splash Mountain, and a clip from the final scene of The Lion King.
  • On the 1996 WDMC VHS release of Oliver and Company, the Pocahontas clip was replaced by a clip from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (of Quasimodo sliding down a rain gutter).
  • Another early variant is seen on the 1996 VHS release of Toy Story. Here, instead of the clips from Bambi and Hercules, clips from Pocahontas (of Pocahontas and Meeko going downstream in their canoe) and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (of Quasimodo sliding down a rain gutter) were used. The ABC logo on the TV screen is different and still.

Variants (Bumper B):

  • On the 1996 WDMC VHS releases of Oliver and Company and The Aristocats, the announcer says "Here's a special preview of Disney's next motion picture/animated masterpiece coming to theaters."
    • On the latter, there is also a brief scene of a man's hand drawing character designs for Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame before this bumper is shown, and the WDMC music is instead replaced with a brief orchestral piece common on many pre-preview logos on Disney tapes from the period, followed by the music for the trailer.
  • On some 1998 WDMC VHS tapes like Hercules and Peter Pan, the announcer says "Join us NOW for a special preview from Walt Disney Pictures!"
  • On the 1996 WDMC VHS's of The Aristocats and Oliver and Company, the announcer says "And look for these great Disney movies to add to your home video collection!"
    • On the former title, the music is the beginning of the Oliver and Company song, "Why Should I Worry?". The announcer is still heard. This was most likely due to a video processing error, as Oliver and Company was not being advertised.
  • On the first pressing of the 1997 VHS release of 101 Dalmatians (1996), the announcer says "Enjoy all the magic at home with this great Disney movie coming to video!".
  • On the 2000 VHS releases of Tarzan and Toy Story, the bumper is seen as usual, then the Gold Walt Disney Home video logo fades in to the Disney DVD logo, which shines and zooms out of the TV screen. The announcer says "Enjoy all the magic at home with these great Disney movies coming to video and Disney DVD!" (Also, this is a sub-variant of the version below)
  • On some 1999-2000 VHS tapes like the Gold Classic Collection VHS edition of Toy Story, Tarzan, the Special Edition VHS release of The Great Mouse Detective, and A Bug's Life, you'll hear the 1992 distorted version of the 1988 Walt Disney Classics music.
  • Three VHS releases don't have the WDHV logo on the TV screen:
    • On the 1997 WDMC VHS release of The Hunchback of Notre Dame, instead of the WDHV logo, we see the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo taking up the entire screen.
    • On the 1997 VHS release of 101 Dalmatians (1996), instead of the WDHV logo, we see Winnie the Pooh with the words "Once Upon a Time..." above him.
    • On the 1998 WDMC VHS release of Lady and the Tramp, instead of the WDHV logo appearing on the screen, it's the first scene of the trailer for The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story (a scene of Colonel Hathi shouting).
  • On the first, recalled pressing of the 1999 WDMC VHS release of The Rescuers, Beau Weaver says "You can always count on something new and exciting from Disney."
  • On the original 1996-97 VHS releases of Toy Story and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the "Walt Disney World" clip-on has clips of the Main Street Electrical Parade, the Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom, and the same shot of the PeopleMover instead. Beau Weaver says "And now, Walt Disney World celebrates its 25th anniversary!".
  • On the 1996 WDMC VHS release of The Aristocats, Tinkerbell is mirrored. Beau Weaver says "And, here's what's new from Disney Interactive!".

FX/SFX:

  • Bumper A: The clips min the montage fading into one another. In the case of the Hunchback clip, the screen turns white when Clopin throws down his smoke ball, which them fades into the Toy Story clip. At the end of the montage, it fades to three of the Bumper B shown below.
  • Bumper B: The curtains coming up, Tinkerbell flying, the screen zooming into the screen. Seems to be a mix of live-action and 2D animation. On the Coming to Videocassette ID, the family watching TV.

Music/Sounds (Bumper A): The 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo theme, followed by the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection theme (which plays into whatever add-on bumper follows the intro). While this plays, an announcer (Beau Weaver) says the following: "From magical movies to unforgettable adventures, from the thrill of the theater to the comfort of your home, you can always count on something new and exciting from Disney."

Music/Sounds (Bumper B):

  • Coming to Theaters: 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."
  • Coming to Videocassette: Either a dreamy strings/woodwinds tune, or the end of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo music (only if it's connected to the Walt Disney Company Intro) with Beau Weaver saying "Enjoy all the magic at home with these great Disney movies coming to video!"
  • Walt Disney World: The end of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo music, along with Beau Weaver saying "Now, here's a special message from Walt Disney World!"
  • Disney Interactive: A gentle calypso theme that was later used on the ABC bumpers. Beau Weaver saying "Let's see what's in store for you, from Disney Interactive!" and "There's always something exciting for everyone from Disney Interactive!"
  • Feature Presentation: The full Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo theme and Beau Weaver saying "And now, our feature presentation!".

Music/Sounds Variants (Bumper A):

  • For the prototype version, the announcement goes like this: "From movies to magical vacations, from the theater to your living room, there's always something new and exciting from Disney."
  • On the original 1996-97 VHS releases of Toy Story and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, the music is accompanied by extra sound effects, including a "poof" sound when Clopin throws his smoke ball, a rumbling sound for the boulder as it rolls, and the little boy giggling.
  • On VHS releases from 1999-2000, the Masterpiece Collection theme is replaced by the 1988 Walt Disney Classics theme (specifically, the 1992 bass-heavy remix). Also, Beau Weaver's announcement was re-recorded.

Availability: It can be seen on WDSHE tapes with the Walt Disney Company Intro. The "Feature Presentation" clip-on is extremely rare, as most tapes instead used the standard 1991, 1994, or 1999 IDs, but it appears exclusively on the 1996 WDMC releases of The Aristocats and Oliver and Company.

Editor's Note: A thrilling montage through the world of Disney, this is a nostalgic favorite among many due to its appearances on many famous titles throughout the 1990s. Also, the animation for Tinkerbell in this bumper can be recognized as the exact same animation used for the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo. The "Feature Presentation" and "Walt Disney World" ones are rather just wasted, since it was only seen on two tapes.

November 11th, 1997

Now Available on CD and Cassette

Bumper: We see the words "Now Available On CD & Cassette" and a still image of Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, ala the Stay Tuned bumper of the era.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: A male announcer, who also provided the voiceover for UAV/Sterling's own IDs, saying "Now available on CD and cassette".

Availability: This can only be seen on the original 1997 VHS release of Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas.

March 31st, 1998

Opening to The Little Mermaid 1998 VHS

Opening to The Little Mermaid 1998 VHS

Nicknames: "Disworld: Little Mermaid Edition", "Walt Disney Company Intro: Little Mermaid Edition"

Bumper A: We see clips from The Little Mermaid, before going to a live action environment with a live action fishbowl showing CGI versions of Gil and Phil from the movie, and then a live action Jodi Benson coming up introducing the movie The Little Mermaid, going to the next bumper.

Bumper B:

  • Coming Soon to Theaters: Following the introduction, Jodi Benson introduces a sneak peek of the studio's upcoming feature Mulan with CGI replicas of Gil and Phil, before cutting to the teaser of Mulan.
  • Coming Soon to Theaters (B): After the trailer of Mulan, Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson, introduce a sneak peek of A Bug's Life. We can see a paper with the Mulan logo along with "COMING TO THEATERS 1998", shown below it. We then cut to the teaser of A Bug's Life, with Benson continuing to narrate.
  • Coming Soon to Video: After the trailer for A Bug's Life, we cut back to Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson, introducing their newest video release Melody Time., which was released on VHS as a WDMC title.
  • Coming Soon to Video (B): After the trailer for Melody Time, we cut back to Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson, introducing the new compilation video The Spirit of Mickey.
  • Coming Soon to Video (C): After the trailer for The Spirit of Mickey, we cut back to Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson, introducing their direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.
  • Coming Soon to Video (D): After the trailer for Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, we cut back to Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson, introducing their newest video release of the 1955 film Lady and the Tramp.
  • Disney Cruise Line: After the trailers, we cut back to Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson, giving us a message to Disney Cruise Line.
  • Disney's One Saturday Morning: After the Disney Cruise Line message, we cut back to Gil and Phil, along with Jodi Benson telling them about Disney's One Saturday Morning on ABC.
  • Feature Presentation: We start with the camera zooming out of a extremely close, tilted shot of the words "FEATURE PRESENTATION", done in gold. As the camera pans out to a confortable distance/angle, the letters are revealed to be sitting at the center of a dark-blue stadium on a gradient black to indigo background, with several spotlights standing still in the background. The logo is shown on a live-action television, viewed from a fishbowl underwater. As a result, the logo look slightly distorted by the ripples in the water, and as the camera pans into the television set the logo is being shown on, the aforementioned fish are initially seen at the left and right of the screen, and a castle that is in the fishbowl is covers up part of the lower-left screen.
  • Stay Tuned: Before fading away to the home video variant of the THX "Broadway" logo, Jodi Benson (as part of the filler at the start of the VHS where she converses with her CGI pet goldfish, Gil and Phil) reminds the audience to stay tuned for your music video.

FX/SFX: A mix of live action and CGI.

Music/Sounds (Bumper A): An excerpt from the song "Under the Sea", along with some dialogue introducing the film.

Music/Sounds (Bumper B): The actual bumper is silent, along with some dialogue.

Availability: Seen on the 1998 WDMC VHS issue of The Little Mermaid.

Editor's Note: Like the Paramount "Stay Tuned" IDs made for Cold Sweat and Sabrina, this is one of the most unusual Disney bumpers of all time. Many audiences were also left wondering what this series of IDs could’ve looked like if it was used on other VHS tapes from WDSHE.

October 27th, 1998

Nicknames: "Disworld II", "Walt Disney Company Intro II", "The Filmstrips", "Walt Disney Company Intro '98"

Bumper A: A light moves over from a black background, and a white flash appears. The flash reveals to be clips from The Rescuers. We cut to a yellow box in the upper left corner, and a filmstrip appears, and then a blue box appears at the bottom half of the screen. The black words "get" slide up and the white words "ready" slide up from the bottom. Then it cuts to clips from 101 Dalmatians and A Bug's Life, then it cuts back to the screen, but the words "get" is replaced by "hold" and "ready" is replaced by "on". After that, it cuts to a clip from Mulan. and it cuts back to the screen, only this time the black word on the yellow box reads "brace" and the white word on the blue box reads "yourself". This cuts to more clips from Mulan and The Rescuers, then it cuts to the film countdown with the yellow words "action", sliding up and a zoom in effect. It cuts to clips from Mighty Joe Young, and it cuts back to the countdown, only this time it reads "fun" instead of "action". Finally, it cuts to a clip from Mulan and A Bug's Life, and it cuts back to the countdown, only this time it reads "adventure". Then it cuts to clips from 101 Dalmatians, The Rescuers, Mulan and Mighty Joe Young, before it fades to the Coming to Theaters bumper from Bumper B.

Bumper B:

  • Coming to Theaters: We fade into a screen that has a yellow box in the upper-left corner and a cerulean blue box at the bottom half of the screen. Just as we fade in, black text that reads "coming soon to theaters" (with "theaters" in a slightly larger font, placed below "coming soon to") fades onto the screen in the yellow box. The "Walt Disney Pictures" logo (with the "PICTURES" text more closely packed-into each other) fades in on the blue box at the bottom. As this all happens, blue-tinted pictures of film used for movie cameras can be seen cycling in the box in the upper-right corner of the screen.
  • Coming to Video: A bright, lens-flare-styled flash occurs. After the flash disappears, we see a screen that has a yellow box in the upper-left corner, a box of blue television static that has an oddly designed, "retro" styled television set with a transparent screen in the upper right corner, and a cerulean blue box at the bottom half of the screen. We see blue text that reads "coming soon" fading in on the yellow box, followed by the Walt Disney Home Video logo (with the "HOME VIDEO" text packed closely together underneath the Walt Disney text) logo fading in on the blue box. At the same time, the television screen on the television set has the Gold 1991 Walt Disney Home Video logo fade in.
  • Feature Presentation: There is a white flash that becomes a yellow square, which moves to the upper right of the screen to reveal a blue background with a test pattern. Then the words "feature presentation" in white zoom in while a purple filmstrip appears and wipes the background away. The background becomes black and "feature" moves from right to left above "presentation".

FX/SFX: The cycling pictures of film, the moving blue television static background, the text for both boxes text fading in.

Music/Sounds (Bumper A): A techno hip hop tune with whooshes and the announcer (Brian Cummings) saying "Now...get ready...hold on...and brace yourself...for all the action...fun...and adventure...coming your way from Walt Disney Studios!"

Music/Sounds (Bumper B): Just the announcer (Brian Cummings) saying "Coming soon to theaters from Walt Disney Pictures." or "And coming soon, from Walt Disney Home Video.".

Availability: Extremely rare, as it only appeared on the original 1998 VHS tape of The Lion King 2: Simba's Pride.

Editor's Note: Some have been surprised by the fast-paced nature of the bumper. It feels like a prototype of the 1999-2006 bumpers. This is considered a failed attempt to replace the 1996 Walt Disney Company intro, since it was only used for one tape.

1999-2000

Bumper: On a black background, we see various poses of Inspector Gadget. Above it we see clip-ons in yellow with a red outline.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon to Own on Video and DVD
  • Now Available To Own on Video and DVD
  • Now Available to Own on Video
  • Feature Program

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The 1983 Inspector Gadget intro music and Brian Cummings cheerfully saying the text.

Availability: Rare, only seen on Inspector Gadget tapes from the era, such as the 2000 VHS release of Gadget's Greatest Gadgets.

February 2nd, 1999

Opening to Mulan 1999 VHS True HQ

Opening to Mulan 1999 VHS True HQ

Nicknames: "Disworld: Mulan Edition", "Walt Disney Company Intro: Mulan Edition"

Bumper:

  • Please Stay Tuned: On a red-black gradient background, we see the yellow Mulan symbol. Above it is "Please STAY TUNED".
  • Introduction: Cutting away from the "Please Stay Tuned" bumper, in the forest is Cri-kee, Mushu, Mulan (in her male soldier disguise) and the black horse Khan introducing us to the previews.
  • Coming Soon to Video: Just the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video logo without any modifications. A bug cuts itself, revealing that of Mushu and his bug Cri-Kee riding underwater on a sea. Then it cuts to the trailer for A Bug's Life.
  • Coming Soon to Video (B): After the trailer for A Bug's Life, we cut to Cri-Kee hitting a gong. Then cuts to a screen with Mushu and Cri-Kee, then Mulan kicks away to reveal the trailer for Winnie the Pooh: Sing a Song with Pooh Bear.
  • Coming Soon to Video (C): After the trailer for Winnie the Pooh: Sing a Song with Pooh Bear, Mushu tries to hold his gong and kick its mallet out. Then it reveals the trailer for the Masterpiece release of 101 Dalmatians.
  • Coming Soon to Theaters: Just the logo for Disney's Tarzan.
  • After the Movie: On a paper sheet, we see Mulan's bug taking away and start writing Chinese characters. Then it zooms in, and a stone background, with "www.DisneyVideos.go.com" wipes in slowly and the Go Network logo appears, then it cuts to the same characters doing interwork. This can be only seen on the first release.
  • Feature Presentation: Same as the "Please STAY TUNED" ID, except the text says "Feature PRESENTATION".

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: A sound of a gong hitting, along with Brian Cummings cheerfully narrating:

  • Please Stay Tuned:
  • Coming Soon to Video: "Coming soon to home video!"
  • Coming Soon to Theaters: "And now, a sneak preview of Disney's all-new animated motion picture, Tarzan!"
  • After the Movie: TBA
  • Feature Presentation: “And now, our feature presentation.”

Availability: Seen on the 1999 WDMC VHS release of Mulan.

Editor's Note: Like with the aforementioned Paramount IDs and the The Little Mermaid ident itself, this is quite an unconventional Coming Soon ID, in that it's blended into the start of the trailer. In addition, since the clip-ons are displayed in a stylized Chinese font, many first time viewers may have a difficult time figuring out the correct spellings for each of them.

October 26th, 1999

Bumper: We see various clips from Pinocchio appear. Then the clip ons appear.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon to Own on Video

Late 1999-2010

Sneak Peeks menu

Variants:

  • While the upper text in each clip-on remains in a Helvetica Light font, the bottom text may appear in a different font, and each clip-on may animate differently, as explained below.
    • The clip-ons with the bottom text that appears in a widened Helvetica Light font animate in a smooth way, with both the upper and lower texts sliding slowly while inside the screen.
    • On a few early cases, the lower text appears in a widened Verdana font and slides into the golden strip slightly slower than usual. This version occurs only on the early version of the "Now Available ON VIDEO" clip-on, and the "Now Available ON CD" and "Join Us AFTER THE PROGRAM" clip-ons. A similar version appears on the "Join Us AFTER THE MOVIE" clip-on, except the text "AFTER THE MOVIE" is in a standard Verdana font.
    • In other cases, the lower text is in a standard Verdana font, emerges from the last side of the screen and swiftly slides into the golden strip. The upper text also emerges from the top of the screen before it falls to its usual position. This version occurs on the early version of the "Now Available TO OWN ON DVD" clip-on as well as the "New From DISNEY INTERACTIVE" and "New From THE SECRET LAB" clip-ons. This also applies to the later versions of the "Coming Soon to Theaters FROM DISNEY & PIXAR", "Now Available ON VIDEO", "Previews" and "Feature PROGRAM" clip-ons.
    • On both "COLLECTOR'S EDITION DVD" clip-ons, each text appears in Helvetica Light.
  • On the 2006 widescreen DVD release of Cars (which is one of the last releases to feature this bumper), there is a more detailed version where the 3D text "Coming Soon" turns downward to face the viewer. "TO THEATERS" or "TO OWN ON DVD" (depending on when the bumper is used on the DVD) swipes in from the left side of the screen and rotate about 45 degrees, and zoom out, to show the text that swiped in. The texts that swiped in sit above the golden strip.
  • DVD releases from late 2000-late 2006 have text added to the bottom-left corner that reads "Press [MENU] to play movie or to select other options" or "Press [PLAY] to start the movie" or "Press [MENU] for other options". This usually appears on the first bumper used during the previews, and was first seen on the 2000 DVD release of Shanghai Noon.
  • UK DVD releases have the white text "ON VIDEO & DVD" fade in and slide inside the golden strip instead.
  • In late 2003, due to the increasing popularity of the DVD format, the bottom text in the Coming Soon/Now Available clip-ons was switched to "DVD & VIDEO".
  • Certain VHS releases, including the Inspector Gadget movie, use different versions of this bumper that are tailor-made specifically for the release, as described both above and below. However, the clip-ons and voiceover remain the same.
  • There are two variants for the "Coming Soon To Theaters From Disney & Pixar" clip-on:
    • The font is in a bolder and slightly narrower Helvetica font: "Coming Soon" is above the gold rectangle, "To Theaters" is in said rectangle and "From Disney & Pixar" (with "From" smaller) is arranged below the rectangle. This variant is seen only on the original 2000 VHS and DVD releases of Toy Story 2.
    • "Coming Soon to Theaters" (now in the normal Helvetica Light font) is arranged above the gold rectangle and "FROM DISNEY & PIXAR" (in the Verdana font used for the Now Available To Own On DVD ID of the time) is in said rectangle. This variant is seen only on the original 2002 VHS release of Monsters Inc.
  • There are two variants for the "New From Disney Interactive" clip-on:
    • "New From" is arranged above the gold rectangle in a white Helvetica font and "DISNEY INTERACTIVE" (in the Vendana font used for the Now Available To Own On DVD ID of the time) is in said rectangle.
    • There is also a still version of this bumper.
  • On Australian VHS tapes, there are also ratings bumpers that remove all the lines and rectangles from the background. The clip-ons for this are:
    • The following preview is classified [rating]
    • The following previews are classified [rating]
    • This following feature is classified [rating]
    • The following previews & feature are classified [rating]
  • On the "Feature Presentation" clip-on, the bumper moves differently. On a gold background, we see the text "Feature PRESENTATION" zooming to the left. Then, "Feature" zooms to the left and the "PRESENTATION" zooms to the right, changing the background to a blue background with a blurry filmreel on it, and they connect together in the middle. Gold arrows and multicolored rectangles move around the bumper in different ways.
  • An earlier version of the "Feature Program" version used a still image that has the words scrunched together. In this case, the “Feature PROGRAM” text is very large. While “Feature” is slightly narrower, “PROGRAM” is wider and positioned above the golden strip.
  • A later version of the “Feature Program” version contains the same animation as the second variant of the “Coming Soon to Theaters FROM DISNEY & PIXAR” version, except with “Feature” in place of “Coming Soon to Theaters” and “PROGRAM” in place of “FROM DISNEY & PIXAR”.
  • On the 2004 VHS release of Kill Bill: Volume 1, during the "After the Feature" clip-on, the animation of the logo seems to be slowed down as well.
  • After the movie/program, the text "Special Bonus Material" is pasted over a textless version of the background from the usual filmreel ID. This variant appears only on Australian VHS tapes.
  • Very rare variants exist on Australian VHS tapes which feature very generic text and concern specific "after the feature" events. Instead of matching up with the other bumpers, some of the bumpers does not match the other bumpers at all, instead being in a plain white Arial font, with a black shadow drop effect applied.:
    • "Stay tuned after the feature for a special music video"
    • "Stay tuned after the feature for a bonus short"
    • "Stay tuned after the feature for Disney's JAAM celebrate friendship festival"
    • "Special Bonus Animated Short"
  • There is an extremely rare variant that is seen on the 2000 VHS releases of Diamonds. The colored squares and golden arrows are removed from the filmreel background, and instead of the usual text, we see "Join Us After the Feature for a Special Message", in gold, displayed on the screen. No music is heard. Tom Kane says "Join us after the feature for a special message from Kirk Douglas." in this variant.
  • On some animated family fantasy movies, a custom "Feature Presentation" bumper is shown like this: We see a CGI version of the Disneyland castle on a cloud, with 4th of July fireworks exploding on a dusk background. We zoom in and through the entrance at the same time as some stars. A large firework goes off in the center of the screen, while circles of what are supposed to like filmstrips spin around, with a still image of a Disney/Pixar film on each frame. A circle of stars spins at the top of it, then the filmstrips and circle of stars go down as the text "FEATURE PRESENTATION", in gold (and in a similar font to the 1st CGI bumper), comes up from the bottom of the screen. After the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" text moves up to the center of the screen, several 4th of July fireworks fly up and explode behind the text.
  • When hitting "Sneak Peeks" on the main menu on most 2004-09 DVDs, a specialized variant acts as a de-facto menu. On the same background, the phrase "Sneak Peeks" zooms slowly down the top of the screen and stays put. Four gold arrows slide in from all four directions of the screen, making the words "PLAY ALL" (on the top right side of the screen), "MAIN MENU" (at the bottom right side) and "MORE" (at the bottom left side) appear. Then, several logos for movies/TV shows/TV stations animate in several unique ways and appear in the middle of the screen in all sides. Then, a blue filmreel with gold holes appears next to the movie logo, and the viewer can use their remote control to move the filmreel to a movie logo, which by clicking on them takes them to the trailer they want to see, or to "PLAY ALL" (which plays all the trailers, either on the disc or on the page), "MAIN MENU" (which jumps right back to the main menu), "MORE" (which jumps to a new page of more trailers), and "BACK" (which can only be accessed from the new menu, and jumps back to the other menu). When the viewer selects a trailer they want, the small filmreel inverts and the menu cuts to black, then the start of the trailer.
    • The initial DVD releases with the original variant, beginning with the 2004 DVD release of The Lion King 1 1/2 (the first Disney DVD to use the original variant), had all the logos fade in at once, but starting sometime around the 2004 DVD release of Miracle, the logos were given animation.
    • In October of 2004, the boxes from these bumpers were deleted, therefore leaving the background as just plain blue. This makes a strange appearance on the second page of trailers on the 2005 DVD release of Walt Disney's Classic Cartoon Favorites: Volume 7 - Extreme Adventure Fun, despite the first page using the 2005 variant.
    • On 2005-2008 DVD releases, the text is in a different font, the animation runs smoother, and the background is darker. The first known DVD to have this was the original 2005 DVD release of National Treasure.
    • Many 2004-05 DVDs with the second variant feature the text alterations from the subsequent variant. Examples include Ladder 49, The Village, Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas, The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement, and the 2005 Platinum Edition DVD release of Bambi.
    • An ultra rare sub-variant of the original variant that lacks the entire animation exists. So far, this is only known to appear on the 2004 DVD releases of Open Range, Under the Tuscan Sun, and Freaky Friday (1976).
    • On some DVDs, a black screen appears before the menu plays, while others go straight to the start of the menu.
    • Some releases with the original variant, including Brother Bear, Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers, Home on the Range (the last Disney DVD to use the original variant), and Cold Creek Manor, have the menu (but not the logos) colored darker.
    • Sometimes, the filmreel appears in its inverted form (gold with blue holes; this inverts to the blue version when an option is selected), and on the earliest DVD releases, in silver with gray holes and orange with brown holes (the orange one only appears when a trailer is selected).
      • On the 2004 DVD issue of The Haunted Mansion, the icon appears in the blue version, but when a trailer is selected, it switches to the orange version.
      • On the 2005 DVD issue of The Last Shot, the filmreel icon on the second page is presented in a weird color scheme: When navigating the menu, the icon is in green. When selecting a preview, it turns yellow. (The first page has the blue version.)
    • On the 2004 DVD release of Around the World in 80 Days, the filmreel icon is shaded differently.
    • Some DVD releases have the logos animate at a filmed rate, while others have the logos appear videotaped.
    • Certain DVDs only have one page of trailers.
    • On the 2006 DVD release of Goal! The Dream Begins, the filmreel icon appears approximately 4 seconds into the menu animation.
    • On Scrubs: The Complete Second Season, the vertical arrows are slightly extended on the first page to the point where a thin green line appears on the bottom of the screen, and when you go to the second page, the arrows shorten a bit until the line disappears. This is especially noticeable on widescreen TVs. It's also like this on The Ladykillers (2004) and Alias: The Complete Fourth Season, except with the horizontal arrows.
    • On the DVD release of The Golden Girls: The Complete Third Season, if one goes to the second page, the light emanating from an icon representing a preview of the next season's then-forthcoming DVD release takes up the entire right half.
    • On the DVD issue of Home Improvement: The Complete Eighth Season, the filmreel icon is replaced with an orange house (based on the show's logo), with a red rooftop. When one of the options is clicked, the orange portion turns yellow.
    • On 2008-09 DVD releases, the menu is drastically enhanced. This strangely doesn't appear on Phineas & Ferb: The Fast and the Phineas and Wizards of Waverly Place: Wizard School, which instead use the 2005 variant, as the disc files were most likely made before the 2008 variant debuted.
    • From 2009-10, the background, cursors, and text/arrow colors varied depending on the release. Here are some variants:
      • Up: A still of Carl Fredriksen's house flying upwards. Regular cursor, yellow text, no arrows.
      • Old Dogs: An iceberg with many penguins on it, in front of a mountain.
      • The Proposal: The filmreel background from the earlier versions, tinted in teal with cream yellow bars at the top and bottom.
      • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Adventures in Wonderland: A forest scene animated in the style of the show, tinted in pink.
      • G-Force: A grid shown through a monitor. If you look closely at the grid, you can see part of the filmreels. Regular cursor, blue text, no arrows.

FX/SFX: The coming down of the clip-on, the rectangles and lines moving in, and the spinning film reels. Some of the clip-ons, however, have the text animate differently or only show a still image with no animation at all.

Music/Sounds: A flat, if somber-sounding, synth theme and Brian Cummings or Beau Weaver announcing the clip-on.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • The "Disney Interactive", "From Playhouse Disney", "Now Available for PSP" and Australian variations don't have the announcer.
  • UK DVD releases have the bumper completely silent.
  • The "Feature Presentation" and "Feature Program" clip-ons used a flat, somber 4-note synth theme culminating in a distant rumble.
  • A version of the "Feature Presentation" bumper with Beau Weaver announcing Cummings’ line “And now, our feature presentation.” at a slightly faster rate exists.
  • Another version of the “Feature Presentation” ID consists of Brian Cummings announcing his line in a cheerful tone of voice. This version is seen on the majority of Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection VHS tapes and 2000-2002 VHS releases of other family-friendly titles that Walt Disney Home Video and Buena Vista Home Entertainment released in the United States, beginning with WDHE’s 2000 VHS release of An Extremely Goofy Movie and ending with BVHE’s 2002 VHS releases of The Adventures of Tom Thumb and Thumbelina and Monsters, Inc.
  • On the 2000 VHS tape of Diamonds, the ID is silent except for Tom Kane saying "Join us after the feature for a special message from Kirk Douglas".
  • On the demo VHS release of Inspector Gadget 2, the exact same voiceover from Brian Cummings and music from the standard VHS tape's animated version of the 1992-2006 Stay Tuned ID are heard instead.
  • On the "After the Feature" variant, Tom Kane says "Watch the trailers from writer/director Quentin Tarantino, coming up right after the feature". Instead of the standard flat music, a song from the film's soundtrack, "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" by Tomoyasu Hotei, is used in it's place.
  • On the custom "FEATURE PRESENTATION" variant, there's no announcer, and a majestic fanfare with a change in pitch at the very end is heard.
  • The "Sneak Peeks" version had a brief shimmering sound when "Sneak Peeks" appears, then a deep but very calm synth theme is heard, along with sound effects corresponding to the movie logos appearing. There are also several beeping sounds like those present in IDs used at the time. None for the still variant.
    • On the 2004 DVD release of The Haunted Mansion, most of the shimmering is omitted.
    • An even shorter version can be found on Around the World in 80 Days (2004), after the menu is fully animated, in which the very last split-second of the music plays and loops constantly.
    • On the first two variants, the music lacks the sound effects corresponding to the logos. This also appears on the earliest DVD releases with the 2005 menu variant, such as National Treasure, Pooh's Heffalump Movie, Coyote Ugly: Unrated Extended Cut, Home Improvement: The Complete Second Season, and Father of the Bride: 15th Anniversary Edition. This version can also be heard on Tarzan II, where it plays in a repeated loop after the menu finishes animating.
    • The 2009-10 variants each have their own custom music (example: on the 2009 DVD release of A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa, an instrumental version of "We Wish You a Merry Christmas" plays). Notably, on the 2009 DVD release of Race to Witch Mountain, an epic orchestral fanfare repeats after the initial music plays, in a similar manner to Tarzan II.

Availability: All previously mentioned variants of this ID are really common, since they appeared on numerous VHS tapes and DVDs that Buena Vista Home Entertainment and its then-current subsidiaries Walt Disney Home Entertainment, Touchstone Home Entertainment, Hollywood Pictures Home Entertainment, Miramax Home Entertainment and Dimension Home Video released during this time period. They also appeared on most Disney DVDs released during the time, except for the ones that contained Disney's Fast Play.

  • The "Coming Soon to Theaters from Disney & Pixar" variants only appear on the original VHS releases of Toy Story 2 and Monsters, Inc.
  • The "Disney Interactive" variant is seen on the 2002 VHS releases of Mickey's House of Villains and Sorority Boys, the 2003 VHS release of Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and the 2000 VHS release of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins.
  • The "Now in Theaters" variant can be found on the 2003 VHS release of Bringing Down the House, the 2005 DVD release of Finding Neverland, and the 2005 VHS release of Darkness, among a few others.
  • The "ON VIDEO & DVD" variant is seen on UK DVDs.
  • The first DVD to use these bumper is the 2000 DVD release of The Sixth Sense, and the last to use them are the 2006 DVD releases of Cars, Home Improvement: The Complete Fifth Season, and The Golden Girls: The Complete Sixth Season.
  • This was also seen on 1999 demo tapes such as Swing. (At the turn of the millennium, Buena Vista would introduce a special "Previews" bumper for demo tapes to come.) Strangely, it appears on the 2002 demo VHS tapes of Jerry Seinfeld: Comedian and Moonlight Mile, alongside the "Previews" bumper.
  • The earlier "Feature Program" version can be seen on the 2000 re-releases of the Winnie the Pooh: Storybook Classics on videocassette among others like the 2000 VHS release of Out of the Box: Happy Holidays and the 2000 VHS re-release of 101 Dalmatians: Christmas. This earlier version of the bumper returned in 2005 on the VHS releases of Disney Princess - Princess Stories Volume 2, Cadet Kelly, My Scene Goes Hollywood: The Movie, Pooh's Heffalump Halloween Movie, Power Rangers S.P.D. VHS tapes, the 2005 demo VHS release of Bambi II, and The Even Stevens Movie. Despite being released direct-to-video, those titles aren't actually programs, but full-fledged movies.
  • The later "Feature Program" version is seen only on the 2002-03 VHS releases of Spider-Man: The Return of the Green Goblin, Schoolhouse Rock!: 30th Anniversary Edition, The Incredible Hulk (90's TV show), Disney's Sing Along Songs: Brother Bear - On My Way and promotional VHS releases of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command.
  • The Beau Weaver version of the "Feature Presentation" clip-on is rare, as it was only seen on the 2000 VHS releases of Toy Story and Tarzan.
  • The custom "Feature Presentation" clip-on is rare, as it was connected to other "Filmreel" bumpers. Seen on the 2002 VHS release of Atlantis: The Lost Empire, the 2001-05 Platinum Edition VHS releases of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Aladdin, Bambi and Cinderella, the 2002 Special Edition VHS release of Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas and 2001 reissues of the Gold Classic Collection VHS release of Mary Poppins, among others. The last tape to use this bumper was the 2005 Platinum Edition VHS release of Cinderella.
  • The "Sneak Peeks" version is more common as it can be seen on many DVD releases of Buena Vista-owned properties (including WDSHE, Disney, Touchstone, Miramax, Hollywood, Dimension, and Buena Vista themselves) from the period. Since this is more of a menu than a logo, it can only be accessed by selecting "SNEAK PEEKS" from the main menu of the DVD.
    • The original variant was first seen on the original release of The Lion King 1 1/2, and last appeared on The Alamo (2004).
    • The second variant is less common, but it first appeared on the 2004 Platinum Edition DVD release of Aladdin.
    • The 2005 variant debuted on the original DVD release of National Treasure and is the most common by far, while the 2008 variant (which debuted two years after Disney's 1999-2006 bumpers were retired) was only used briefly, and can be seen on titles from this era such as College Road Trip.
    • This menu strangely doesn't appear on Pixar DVD releases, while some titles such as Signs, The Golden Girls: The Complete Second Season, and Scrubs: The Complete First Season forgo previews (and therefore, this menu) entirely.
    • Also, this can be accessed on the 2005 DVD release of Sky High from both the regular menu option and as a little easter egg when the viewer highlights the bus window on the main menu, to the left of "SCENE SELECTION".
    • This menu is usually on the first disc of a multi-disc set, but on post-2006 TV releases such as Lost: The Complete Second Season - The Extended Experience, Alias: The Complete Fifth Season, and Brothers and Sisters: The Complete First Season, it appears on the last disc. (Releases of Home Improvement and The Golden Girls, however, still kept it on the first disc.)

Editor's Note: The quality of the clip-ons from this era of bumpers is wildly inconsistent, arguably more so than any of the other styles of bumpers. While some of the clip-ons properly match the layout and overall quality of the FP bumper of the time, other clip-ons are visibly not as good, and still other clip-ons look like they were made on a shoestring budget. As for the earlier "Feature Program" version, ​​this bumper has been criticized as a rush job by some, due to the still animation and the smaller "PROGRAM" text not in the gold bar, both of which contrast significantly with most bumpers from the era. Presumably, this was a placeholder for the previously mentioned bumper, but even by those standards, it's still considered sloppy. The later “Feature Program” version was stated to contain much better effort than the earlier one, although it did not see as much exposure. For the "Sneak Peeks" version, a select few discs use this menu despite having only one preview, and still bother to use a "PLAY ALL" option, therefore providing two ways to select the sole trailer. On a positive note, the music has been described as very soothing.

2001

Nickname: "Holiday 2001"

Bumper:

  • Coming This Holiday Season: A picture suddenly bounces down from the top of the screen into view. We see the tree lighting animation from the opening of Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas. The golden words "Coming This Holiday Season" fade in in the center on the bottom of the clip.
  • Now Available to Own: Starts off the same as the previous one, except it features a zoom-out from a giant cartoon television bordered with fancy pillars and a Christmas decoration featuring a yellow streamer and a red bow that turns and draws into a yellow Mickey head and then shines brightly and outward. The TV screen flashes the yellow words "Merry Christmas" and then disappears and the red words "Now Available To Own" appear.
  • Feature Program: We see a Mickey Mouse-shaped Christmas wreath in a red background when we see the text "FEATURE PROGRAM" in the Biondi font zoom in. After the words zoom in, Tinker Bell (From Disney's Peter Pan) dressed up in red clothing flying up hovering a bit, waving her magic wand. Then, a bright flash appears and clears the screen and all that's left is a black screen.

FX/SFX: The words zooming in, the Christmas decorations positioning themselves, and Tinker Bell hovering.

Music/Sounds: A jazzy holiday tune with Brian Cummings cheerfully saying the following lines.

  • Coming This Holiday Season/Now Available to Own: “There’s special holiday fun and excitement coming your way on Disney DVD and video!”
  • Feature Program: “And now, our feature program!”

Availability: Seen on the 2001 VHS releases of Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street, Disney's Sing Along Songs: The Twelve Days Of Christmas and Rolie Polie Olie: A Jingle Jangle Holiday.

Editor’s Note: These clip-ons are noteworthy for its holiday-themed style, which would cause many viewers to best look forward to enjoying the holiday season.

2002-2006 (Buena Vista/Miramax)

Bumper: On a background with one of the colors from the last bumper (except for the blue one), we see animated white rectangles in the background with one of the following clip-ons appearing all over the screen, then the clip on transitions to the center of the screen and the clip-on shines, then zooms out and then in with a ripple effect.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon To Theaters
  • Coming Soon To Own On Video & DVD
  • Now Available To Own On Video & DVD
  • Now Available To Own On Video
  • Now Available On CD
  • New from Disney Interactive
  • Join Us After the Program
  • Feature Program

Variant: The "New From Disney Interactive" variant doesn't have the ripple effect and the words just zoom out from the center.

FX/SFX: The clip-ons appearing on the screen, the rectangles moving.

Music/Sounds: A funktronica/electro hip-hop jingle with Brian Cummings announcing the clip-on.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the "Now Available On CD" variant, it uses a different theme with a piano tune at the beginning and then a hip-hop like jingle with 4 notes at the end. Brian Cummings says "Now available on CD from Buena Vista Records."
  • The "New from Disney Interactive Variant" has a jingle that sounds a little bit different, but similar to the beginning of the regular music.
  • On the "Feature Program" variant, Brian Cummings cheerfully says "And now, our feature program!"
  • On the "Join Us After the Program" variant, Brian Cummings says "Be sure to join us after the feature for more fun and excitement!"

The "Now Available On CD" and "New From Disney Interactive" variants can be seen on the 2002 VHS release of Power Rangers Wild Force: Lion Heart. The "Join Us After The Program" variant can be seen on the screener VHS release of Pokémon Heroes (oddly, that tape also uses the 1999-2006 FP bumper), the 2004 VHS releases of Doc Ock vs. Spider-Man and Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Day of the Dino, and the regular 2004 VHS release of Pokémon: Jirachi Wish Maker.

Editor's Note: While the flashiness of the bumper may get to some, the music sounds very enjoyable to hear and the background appealing to look at.

2004

Bumper:

  • Coming Soon to Own on DVD & Video: We see a still from Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers with the gold words "Coming Soon To Own On DVD & Video" zooming down from below.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon To/to THEATERS
  • Now IN/in THEATERS
  • Coming Soon to DVD and Blu-ray
  • Coming Soon to Blu-ray and DVD
  • Coming Soon To Own On DVD
  • Coming Soon to DVD

  • Now on DVD and Blu-ray
  • Now on Blu-ray and DVD
  • Now on DVD

International Clip-Ons:

  • In Cinemas
  • On DVD
  • On DVD and Blu-ray

Variants:

  • The colors of the background, lens flares and sparks of light may differ on each DVD. So far, the following colored backgrounds include purple, red, green, flaming pink, aquamarine, dandelion, and black and white.
  • For the home video clip-ons, a blank DVD appears in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • For the "THEATERS" clip-ons, a filmreel appears in the upper left corner of the screen instead.
  • Many variations of the "THEATERS" clip-ons exist:
    • On 2006-10 DVDs, "To" is capitalized and in a bold Times New Roman font.
    • In 2010, "To" was changed to a thin Trebutchet MS "to."
    • An early version of the "Coming Soon To THEATERS" ID consists of a black background with a pair of filmreels spinning as opposed to the standard blurry multi-colored background. This variant appears on the DVD releases of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
  • This series of IDs may appear in 1.85:1 anamorphic wide screen or 1.33:1 full screen, depending on the intended aspect ratio of each DVD. However, while the DVD releases of Invincible, The Guardian, and The Prestige present the films in widescreen, the bumpers are in 1.33:1!
  • A "windowboxed" 1.85:1 version can be found on the 2008 DVD releases of Home Improvement: The Complete Eighth Season and Scrubs: The Complete Seventh Season.

FX/SFX: The clip-ons zooming out, and the filmreel or DVD running clockwise.

Music/Sounds: There are gentle pieces of music, and/or intense scores, depending on the variation of each bumper. A couple of whooshing sound effects are also present.

Availability: Common; found on many current DVDs from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment and its subsidiaries beginning with the 2006 DVD release of The Cheetah Girls 2. Other discs with this ID include the first three Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, Wild Hogs, Deja Vu, The Queen, The Guardian, The Invisible, The Prestige, Hannah Montana: Pop Star Profile, High School Musical: The Concert: Extreme Access Pass, High School Musical 2, Jump In!: Freestyle Edition, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody: Sweet Suite Victory, Cory in the House: All Star Edition, Return to Halloweentown, Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board, National Treasure: Book of Secrets, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, WALL-E, Pixar's Up, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Toy Story 3, Cars 2, and The Princess and the Frog. On FastPlay releases, it first appeared on the 2010 DVD release of Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You. From the 2011 DVD reissue of The Incredibles onward, all color schemes except for purple, as well as most of the musical cues, have been retired. It also appears on 20th Century Studios Home Entertainment releases starting with Call of the Wild (2020).

Editor’s Note: These clip-ons have been criticized as looking cheap by a couple of individuals, while others praised them for containing much better effort than the earlier ones along with a much larger selection of music. The variety of colors and metallic typefaces help make each clip-on stand out smoothly as well.

April 3rd, 2007-present

Bumper: On a blue magical background, we see sparks revealing the metallic shimmering text of clip-ons in a bold cyan-silver Goudy Old Style font.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming to THEATERS
  • Now in THEATERS
  • Coming to (Blu-ray Disc logo)
  • Coming To (Disney Blu-ray logo)
  • Now on (Blu-ray Disc logo)
  • Coming to (Disney Channel logo)
  • Coming to (Disney XD logo)

Variants:

  • After the trailers on DVD and Blu-ray releases from 2010-11, such as Toy Story 3, The Lion King (1994): Diamond Edition, and The Black Cauldron: 25th Anniversary Edition, the same background is used, but the text reads "To view these trailers and more." It appears above logos for various Buena Vista-owned releases. Below it is the text "Press Sneak Peeks on the main menu".
  • Sometimes, a still version exists where the whole text is replaced by the stacked text "All films and promotions may not be available in all territories. This version debuted in fall 2009, and appears on WDSHE's DVD and Blu-rays as soon as all the previews are over.
  • On some DVDs and Blu-rays, the text reads "Stay tuned for exciting Previews including..." with the film's logo in the middle. Below it is "Press Top Menu to play movie or to select other options." It is also still.

FX/SFX: The shimmering.

Music/Sounds: A couple of sparks and a creepy synth theme.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • In some cases, a different theme is used.
  • Beginning in late 2012, a different orchestral fanfare is heard.
  • The still versions are silent.
  • On the "Sneak Peeks" version, we hear a whimsical tune.

Music/Sounds Trivia: This selection of the movie is the same as the previous ID.

Availability: Seen on numerous Disney Blu-rays and a few DVDs of the era, starting with the 2007 Blu-ray releases of King Arthur and G.I. Jane.

Editor’s Note: Many viewers were caught off guard by the sudden appearances of the sparks and the clip-ons. The fact that everything is in blue could also make this ID come off as depressing.

November 6th, 2007-August 25th, 2009

WDSHE-Available-on-DVD-and-Disney’s-Blu-ray-Disc-ID

Bumper: We start out with clips from many Disney movies. It differs depending on the country, year or period of time that the DVD or Blu-ray was released in, but the first three always remain the same: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, Peter Pan (1953 animated film), and The Princess Diaries. Eventually, the camera then zooms out, revealing a wall of hundreds of clips from Disney movies, both animated and live-action, old and new. More and more clips fly out, replacing some others. One by one, the words "MOVIES.", "MAGIC.", and "MORE." zoom out and fade out in various directions. Then all of the clips come together to form the 2006 Disney Castle. The ring gets drawn around the castle, as usual, then "DiSNEY", in the 2006 remake of its famous script, fades in below. After a few seconds, the bumper fades to black and a brief screen that advertises many of the films featured in the bumper appears. The text "AVAILABLE ON DVD AND (Disney Blu-ray Disc logo)" and the titles (which may also differ depending on the previously mentioned country, year or period of time that the DVD and Blu-ray was released in) are shown in a white narrow font.

Trivia:

  • The appearance and positioning of the "DiSNEY" text would be used to replace the "WALT DiSNEY PICTURES" text on current Disney films beginning with the November 2011 theatrical premiere of The Muppets (2011 live-action film), only it would appear out of the fairy dust coming out of the gate, instead of simply fading in.
  • This ID is commonly referred to as "There is only one, Disney" by individuals across the globe.

Variant: As mentioned above, the remaining clips in the Disney Castle sequence and selection of titles in the "AVAILABLE ON DVD AND (Disney's Blu-ray Disc logo)" screen may differ depending on the country, year or brief period of time that the DVD or Blu-ray was released in. Check out the lists of remaining clips and selection of titles below for more information.

  • Version #1 (November 6th, 2007-August 26th, 2008):
    • Clips seen in the Disney Castle sequence: Pocahontas, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Finding Nemo, Chicken Little, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, The Lion King (1994), The Santa Clause 2, National Treasure, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmatians (1996), Invincible, The Jungle Book (1967), Cars

FX/SFX: All modern and beautiful effects that stand out nicely to this day.

Music/Sounds: An edited version of the overture from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (also used as the theme of American Masters and the 1991 Morgan Creek logo). On the Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest clip, we hear Jack Sparrow state "We have our heading.", and on the Peter Pan clip, we hear the titular character bellow "Here we GOOOOO!" After the Peter Pan clip, an announcer says "From the magic within our hearts...to the adventure beyond the horizon...there is only one, Disney." As soon as the announcer finishes speaking, the overture rises to a beautiful, triumphant state and ends with a majestic climax.

Availability: Really common. Seen at the beginning of numerous WDSHE DVDs and Blu-rays released during this time period, preceding either the post-2006 IDs (for non-Fast Play DVDs), the post-2007 IDs (for Blu-rays) or the Fast Play bumper (for Fast Play DVDs). In general, this ID debuted on the 2007 DVD/Blu-ray release of Ratatouille, and the final release to use it was the 2009 DVD release of The Suite Life on Deck: Anchors Away.

  • The earliest 2007-08 DVD and Blu-ray releases with this ID include Disney+Pixar's Ratatouille, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, National Treasure, High School Musical 2: Extended Edition, Underdog, The Game Plan, Hannah Montana: One in a Million, Twitches Too: Double Charmed Edition and Snow Buddies, which also contain the print logos for Walt Disney Home Entertainment or Walt DIsney Studios Home Entertainment on the packaging, along with the first version of this ID.
  • The final titles with this ID include the 2009 DVD and Blu-ray releases of The Suite Life on Deck: Anchors Away, Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience, and the 2009 10th Anniversary Edition DVD release of The Tigger Movie, all of which contain the either the second or final versions of this ID. Both versions later reappeared on the 2013 DVD releases of The Sword in the Stone: 50th Anniversary Edition and Oliver & Company: 25th Anniversary Edition, respectively, due to them recycling content from their previous 2008-09 DVDs.
  • Please note that this ID does not appear on the 2007-08 DVD and Blu-ray releases of Pixar Short Films Collection: Volume 1, Cars, The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Claus, Disney Channel's Wish Gone Amiss Weekend, My Friends Tigger and Pooh: Super Sleuth Christmas Movie, the 2008 Special Edition DVD release of The Aristocats, the 2007 Special Edition DVD release of Cinderella II: Dreams Come True, and the 2007 Pixie-Powered Edition DVD release of Return to Never Land, possibly since these were released as the final titles from Walt Disney Home Entertainment prior to their liquidation. It also does not appear on the second disc of all 2-disc DVDs/Blu-rays that WDSHE released during this time period or any of the company’s releases since fall 2009, since they contain the abridged version of the WDSHE logo instead.
  • Since Buena Vista Home Entertainment was re-branded as Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment in November 2007 and liquidated their Walt Disney Home Entertainment label in February 2008, this ID appears on international copies of the company's DVDs and Blu-rays released during this time period as well, beginning with WDSHE’s 2007 international DVD release of Air Buddies.

Examples of where to find each variant on American DVDs and Blu-rays from WDSHE:

  • Version #1 (November 6th, 2007-August 26th, 2008): Disney+Pixar's Ratatouille, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the 2007 DVD edition of National Treasure, High School Musical 2: Extended Edition, Underdog, The Game Plan, Hannah Montana: One in a Million, Twitches Too: Double Charmed Edition, Snow Buddies, Little Einsteins: Race for Space, Little Einsteins: Flight of the Instrument Fairies, the 2008 Platinum Edition DVD release of 101 Dalmatians (1961), Enchanted, the 2008 Classic Caballeros Collection DVD releases of Saludos Amigos and The Three Caballeros, Cory in the House: Newt and Improved Edition, and The Suite Life of Zack and Cody: Lip Syncing in the Rain.
  • Version #2 (May 20th, 2008-August 25th, 2009): National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, the 2008 45th Anniversary Edition DVD release of The Sword in the Stone, the 2008 Special Edition DVD release of The Jungle Book 2, Minutemen, College Road Trip, Phineas and Ferb: The Fast and the Phineas, Wizards of Waverly Place: Wizard School, Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert, Camp Rock: Extended Edition, The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, the 2008 Collector’s Edition DVD release of The Nightmare Before Christmas, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Storybook Surprises (U.S. edition), the 2008 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition DVD release of Sleeping Beauty, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, the 2008 DVD releases of 101 Dalmatians (1996) and 102 Dalmatians, The Cheetah Girls: One World, the 2008 Special Edition DVD releases of The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea and 101 Dalmatians II: Patch's London Adventure, Tinker Bell (2008), Hannah Montana: The Complete First Season, High School Musical and Hannah Montana Disney DVD Games, the 2009 Big Wave Edition DVD release of Lilo & Stitch, Bolt, the 2009 10th Anniversary Edition DVD release of The Tigger Movie, and The Suite Life on Deck: Anchors Away.
  • Version #3 (November 18th, 2008-August 25th, 2009): WALL-E, Phineas and Ferb: The Daze of Summer, the 2009 45th Anniversary Edition DVD release of Mary Poppins, the 2009 20th Anniversary Edition DVD release of Oliver & Company, High School Musical 3: Senior Year, Beverly Hills Chihuahua, the 2009 70th Anniversary Platinum Edition DVD/Blu-ray release of Pinocchio, Hannah Montana: Keeping It Real, Dadnapped, Hatching Pete, and Jonas Brothers: The 3D Concert Experience.

Editor's Note: This is a great ID that contemplates the current movie logo nicely, and it's a crying shame that this did not appear on subsequent DVDs and Blu-rays that Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released after this time period, especially for individuals that grew up seeing this ID at the beginning of Disney's DVDs and Blu-rays that were originally released between November 2007 and August 2009. Had this ID continue usage on subsequent titles on DVD and Blu-ray, more recent titles would be showcased.
