June 26, 1981-November 1982 (A)

Here are selected highlights from other walt disney home videocassettes.jpg

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 left-aligned, yellow Helvetica 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 and print date (the latter 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.

Editor’s Note: The text is positioned off center.

1981-1982 (B)

Also Available From Walt Disney Home Video.jpg

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. The copyright date is seen 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.

December 10, 1985-August 19, 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 an italic Times New Roman font)
  • COMING SOON FROM TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO ("TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO" is done using their logo; the text is colored turquoise)
  • COMING TO THEATERS IN OCTOBER 1986 FROM TOUCHSTONE FILMS (in a condensed Futura Bold font)

Variants:

  • The "Coming Soon From WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO" clip-on is displayed on a black-blue gradient background. This precedes a trailer for The Journey of Natty Gann.
  • On the 1986 VHS release of My Science Project, preceding a trailer for Down and Out in Beverly Hills, the text is dark blue.
  • On several 1986 VHS releases that open with trailers for The Journey of Natty Gann and The Sword in the Stone, a bumper appears in between the trailers using a clip of The Sorcerer's Apprentice from Fantasia. The music from the short is heard, with the 80s Disney Channel promo with Jerry Bishop announcer saying, "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, The Blue Yonder, and The Small One. The "Coming Soon From WALT DISNEY HOME VIDEO" and Sorcerer Mickey clip-ons appears on the 1986 VHS releases of One Little Indian, The Living Desert, Charley and the Angel, and Lots of Luck 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" variant can be seen on VHS releases of Wildside. The "COMING TO THEATERS IN OCTOBER 1986 FROM TOUCHSTONE FILMS" variant appears on the 1986 VHS releases of Down and Out in Beverly Hills and Off Beat, preceding a trailer for Tough Guys.

Editor's Note: This is the very first Disney ID to contain multiple clip-ons, introduced years before it became a standard. 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.

August 19, 1986-April 14, 1987

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 one of the following:

  • Down and Out in Beverly Hills home video preview: "And now, here's a look at the Touchstone Home Video smash-comedy hit...” followed by stated movie title. This voiceover variant uses the undistorted version of the logo's music, and is seen only on the 1986 VHS release of Off Beat.
  • Off Beat home video preview: "From Touchstone Home Video, their special preview of the hit feature starring Judge Reinhold and Meg Tilly...” again followed by stated movie title. This voiceover variant uses the distorted version of the logo's music, and is seen only on the 1986 VHS release of Down and Out in Beverly Hills.
  • Ruthless People home video preview: “And don’t forget these other hit titles from Touchstone Home Video.” The Ruthless People trailer's theme is played instead of the logo's music. This voiceover variant is seen on the 1987 VHS releases of Outrageous Fortune, Tin Men and Ernest Goes to Camp.
  • The Color of Money home video preview: “And now, for one of the year’s top films...” once again followed by the movie title. The Color of Money trailer's theme is played instead of the logo's music. This voiceover variant is seen only on the 1987 VHS release of Tin Men.

Availability: Rare; it premiered on the original 1986 VHS tapes of Down and Out In Beverly Hills and Off Beat, following the Video Dealer Announcement. It later appeared on the 1987 VHS releases of Outrageous Fortune, Tin Men and Ernest Goes to Camp.

Editor’s Note: This is the very first Disney ID in U.S./Canada to contain numerous voiceover variants courtesy of Brian Cummings.

April 14, 1987-February 28, 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 (Seen on the 1988 VHS reissue of Tin Men, and the original 1988 VHS releases of Hello Again, D.O.A., Shoot to Kill, and Good Morning, Vietnam)
  • ASK YOUR VIDEO DEALER ABOUT THIS HIT TITLE, ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO (Seen on the 1988 VHS release of The Rescue and the 1989 VHS release of Big Business)
  • AND NOW, A PREVIEW OF ANOTHER BLOCKBUSTER HIT. (Only seen on the 1988 VHS release of The Rescue)
  • A SPECIAL PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT (Only seen on the original 1987 VHS release of Outrageous Fortune and the 1988 VHS releases of Adventures in Babysitting and Can’t Buy Me Love)
  • FEATURE PRESENTATION

Variants:

  • An early variant of the "Ask Your Video Dealer..." clip-on exists, where the text is still and instead reads "Ask your video dealer now about this hit title also from Touchstone Home Video." Grant Goodeve reads the text as usual, only his tone is different. This version was first seen on the 1988 VHS of Stakeout, the first tape to include these bumpers, and later appeared on the 1988 VHS releases of Three Men and a Baby and Adventures in Babysitting.
  • "AND NOW, A PREVIEW" sub-variants:
    • On the 1988 VHS release of Hello Again, the text is seen in an all-caps Impact font.
    • On the 1988 VHS release of Shoot to Kill, a still version of the bumper is seen in between the two trailers on the tape.
  • 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 release 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 it’s interlocked with the film's logo, and thus rests on that. The logo then shines and flies away into the top left corner of the screen.
  • One variant of the “A Special Public Service Announcement“ clip-on exists, where the background is orange red and the text is bolder. This version is only seen on the original 1987 VHS release of Outrageous Fortune.

FX/SFX: The "ASK YOUR VIDEO DEALER", "A SPECIAL PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT", and "AND NOW, A PREVIEW... ANOTHER BLOCKBUSTER HIT" clip-ons simply fade in and out. The "AND NOW, A PREVIEW... TOUCHSTONE HOME VIDEO" clip-ons scroll up, and the Feature Presentation clip-on variant from Adventures in Babysitting has its own animation described above.

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

  • Ask Your Video Dealer: "Ask your video dealer now about this hit title, also from Touchstone Home Video." Voiced by Grant Goodeve, later known as the voice of the Engineer in the video game Team Fortress 2.
  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation from Touchstone Home Video." Voiced by Brian Cummings, well-known Disney bumper announcer and later credited as the voice of Sokolov in Metal Gear Solid 3.

Music/Sounds Variants (FP only):

  • The 1988 VHS release of Good Morning, Vietnam had the announcer saying, "And now for 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 reissue 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.
    • Similar audio is used for the animated variation on the 1988 VHS release of Adventures in Babysitting, except the excerpt from the previously mentioned song is slightly muffled and the announcer adds, "...Adventures in Babysitting."
  • The 1988 VHS release of Outrageous Fortune has the announcer adding, "...Outrageous Fortune."

Availability: Rare. These clip-ons were only seen on Touchstone Home Video VHS tapes from 1987 to 1989; they first appeared on the 1987 VHS of Outrageous Fortune, and last appeared on the 1989 VHS of Big Business.

Editor's Note: On the "Ask Your Video Dealer" variant, there's a period, but the comma is gone. These clip-ons look very plain compared to the more elaborate ones that came later; in fairness, these were the first forays into consistent clip-on branding for Disney, and they certainly got better over time. 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 FP text been on screen slightly longer, it would've been fine.

April 18, 1989-September 18, 1992

Nickname: "Fly-In"

Bumper: On a black background, we see either one of the clip-ons below swiftly appear in a Clarendon 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 (First appeared on the original 1989 VHS release of Beaches; last appeared on the 1991 VHS releases of Mr. Destiny and Three Men and a Little Lady.)
  • Coming To Theatres (Seen on the 1990 Classics VHS release of Peter Pan (1953), and the original 1991 VHS release of White Fang.)
  • Coming On Videocassette (First seen on the 1991 VHS release of Mr. Destiny as a still version; the fully animated version was first seen on the 1991 VHS of Run and last seen on the 1992 VHS of So Dear to My Heart.)
  • Now On Videocassette (Seen on the 1990 Classics VHS release of Peter Pan (1953) and the original 1991 VHS release of Shipwrecked as a still.)
  • Also on VIDEO (Seen on the 1991 Hollywood Pictures VHS releases of The Marrying Man, One Good Cop, and V.I. Warshawski.)
  • 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 (This always preceded a trailer for Who Framed Roger Rabbit, and was seen on the original 1989 VHS releases of Cocktail, Heartbreak Hotel, Beaches, Ernest Saves Christmas, and Three Fugitives.)
  • BEHIND THE SCENES (Exclusively seen on the 1989 VHS of Cocktail before a music video preview for Heartbreak Hotel.)
  • FEATURE PRESENTATION

Variants:

  • On the 1991 VHS release of Mr. Destiny, only the sparkling/shining animation on the "Coming On Videocassette" clip-on is shown. The same thing occurs, but from right to left, on the “Now On Videocassette” clip-on on the 1991 VHS release of Shipwrecked.
  • On the 1992 VHS release of Truly, Madly, Deeply, the "Coming On Videocassette" clip-on cuts in a second later than usual.
  • On the "ALSO FROM TOUCHSTONE" clip-on, the text "TOUCHSTONE" shines differently and doesn't have any sparkle effects.
  • On the "Also on VIDEO" clip-on, the text is in a Lydian 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 in one by one from top to bottom instead of flying in. There are also no sparkle effects on them.
  • On the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" clip-on, the text is in gold.
  • Starting with the 1992 demo VHS releases of Deceived and Billy Bathgate and ending with the 1992 VHS of Truly, Madly, Deeply, Touchstone VHS tapes would have a variation of the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" clip-on using 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, a triumphant tune meant to invoke an award show atmosphere noteworthy for its prominence on many Disney clip-ons. An announcer (Brian Cummings, the same announcer as the previous two clip-ons), is heard saying one of the following:

  • Coming To Theatres: "Coming to theaters from Walt Disney Pictures."
  • Coming On Videocassette: "Coming soon 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 shortened version of "Great Ovation" heard on other bumpers from the time, with Mark Elliot saying, "Coming soon, from Walt Disney Home Video." This bumper crossfades into the start of the Beauty and the Beast video trailer.
    • On the 1991 VHS release of What About Bob?, Brian Cummings enthusiastically says, "Coming on videocassette!"
    • On the demo VHS releases of Deceived and 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."
  • Now On Videocassette:
    • On the 1991 VHS release of Shipwrecked, Brian Cummings enthusiastically says, "Now on videocassette!"
  • Also from Touchstone:
    • On 1989 Touchstone Home Video tapes, a different announcer, Tom Kane, says, "Ask your video dealer about this hit title, also from Touchstone Home Video". As this bumper only referred to one preview, this bumper appeared twice on the 1989 VHS releases of Three Fugitives and Turner & Hooch. The last tape to use this variation was the 1990 VHS of New York Stories, and the first tape to use the 1990 variation was the 1990 VHS of An Innocent Man.
    • On the 1991 VHS releases of Mr. Destiny and Three Men and a Little Lady, 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, a more bombastic version of "Great Ovation" sourced from the last few seconds of the track is heard instead.
  • The "Also from Walt Disney Home Video" clip-on used a different, majestic-sounding fanfare ("Pageantry (6)" as composed by Leslie Pearson, also from Bruton).

Availability: Rare, as it was only used for three years. It was first seen on the original 1989 VHS printing of Cocktail, and appeared on all subsequent titles from Touchstone and Hollywood Pictures Home Video until the 1992 VHS release of Truly, Madly, Deeply; however, the "Coming On Videocassette" clip-on made one last appearance on the 1992 VHS release of So Dear to My Heart. The "Feature Presentation" clip-on is relatively more common, as it was used on both Touchstone / Hollywood releases and Disney releases, including the 1991 VHS releases of Shipwrecked, White Fang, Robin Hood (1973), The Rescuers Down Under, DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp, and The Brave Little Toaster, and the 1992 VHS releases of Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken and The Rocketeer. This was preserved on numerous Touchstone Home Video VHS reissues that used the below two clip-ons described below well into the late 1990s, even with a later FBI warning screen replacing an earlier one. Also found on VHS releases from Filipino VHS distributor Regal Home Video, such as Aswang. Surprisingly, it has also appeared on the 1990 Laserdisc release of Dead Poets Society.

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 fairly tame.

October 19, 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."

Music/Sound Variants:

  • On the 1990 VHS release of Stakeout, Brian Cummings says, "Now you can own this hit title from Touchstone Home Video."
  • On the short version, Brian Cummings says, "Coming from Touchstone Home Video." and there's no music at all.

Availability: Rare; it was seen only on certain Touchstone Home Video VHS reissues from 1990 such as the VHS reissues of Cocktail and Splash. These reissues were printed into the late 90s. The short version is seen on the 1991 VHS releases of Arachnophobia, Taking Care of Business and the demo tapes of White Fang and Green Card.

1991-1992

Touchstone-HV Fav-Hit-Movies.png

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. This bumper is seen before a promo for all of Touchstone Home Video's VHS reissues available through sell-thru.

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

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

Music/Sounds Variant: On the 1992 variant, a shortened version of the introduction to "Great Ovation" is heard. Mark Elliott 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 (1967), and the full version is seen on the 1991 VHS release of DuckTales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp and the 1992 VHS release of Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken. The 1992 variant appears on the 1992 VHS releases of So Dear to My Heart and The Rescuers.

May 3, 1991

Coming to Theaters from Walt Disney Pictures.jpeg

Music/Sounds: The short version of the 1988 Walt Disney Classics logo, along with Brian Cummings saying, "Look for these animated classics on videocassette" (Robin Hood (1973) and The Brave Little Toaster), or silence and him saying, "Don't miss this timeless Disney classic, from Walt Disney Home Video." (The Rescuers Down Under).

Availability: Seen on the first pressings of the 1991 VHS releases of Robin Hood (1973), The Brave Little Toaster and The Rescuers Down Under.

September 11, 1991-January 16, 1992

Now Available on Home Video (Disney's Studio Collection).png

Bumper: On a blue-black gradient background, the text “NOW AVAILABLE ON HOME VIDEO” in a golden, narrow western font is shown in the center of the screen.

Trivia: Unlike other IDs, this one was displayed during the first scene of a home video collection trailer, instead of after.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The first eight bars of an electric guitar/synth/jazz jingle that was composed for the trailer for Walt Disney’s Studio Film Collection.

April 10, 1992-August 17, 1999


Nicknames: "Lilac", "Handwriting", "Fancy Writing"

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

Trivia: On VHS printings of Beauty and the Beast (1991) from mid June-early July 1992, the "Special Previews" clip-on is shown despite only having the trailer for the Classics release of 101 Dalmatians (1961) following the movie. Subsequent VHS printings contain the "Special Preview" clip-on with one trailer afterwards.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming to Videocassette
  • Coming Soon To Videocassette (This can be found on most copies of the 1995 VHS release of The Lion King (1994); very early printings use the above clip-on)
  • Coming to Home Video (This can be found on the 1992 Classics releases of The Rescuers and Beauty and the Beast (1991))
  • Coming to Home Video/Coming on Video Cassette This Summer (This can be found on the 1992 Classics release of 101 Dalmatians (1961); very early printings don't have this or the below bumper)
  • Coming This Fall to Home Video (This can be found on the 1992 Classics releases of 101 Dalmatians (1961) and The Great Mouse Detective)
  • Coming Only to Theatres this 1992 Holiday Season (This can be found on the 1992 Classics releases of 101 Dalmatians (1961) and Beauty and the Beast (1991))
  • Now on Home Video (This can be found on the 1992 Classics release of Beauty and the Beast (1991))
  • Now on Videocassette (This can be found on 1995 printings of the 1994 Masterpiece Collection VHS tapes; earlier copies contain the blue “Now Available on Videocassette” clip-on described below)
  • Special Previews After our feature from Walt Disney Home Video (This can be found on printings of the 1992 Classics VHS release of Beauty and the Beast (1991) from before July 1992)
  • Feature Presentation

Variants:

  • On several 1992 Classics VHS releases, the clip-on appears underneath the red Walt Disney script from the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video logo, in place of "HOME VIDEO".
  • 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 on the 1992 Classics VHS release of The Rescuers.
  • The "Feature Presentation" clip-on writes itself in on the screen from left to right.
  • Printings of the 1992 Classics VHS release of Beauty and the Beast (1991) from after June 1992 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 in.

Music/Sounds: These clip-ons usually use the beginning of "Great Ovation"; some clip-ons use different music, described below. Brian Cummings or Mark Elliot announce 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:

  • On the "Coming to Home Video/Coming on Videocassette This Summer" clip-on, part of an alternate take of the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video theme is heard instead of the normal music.
  • On the "Coming This Fall to Home Video" clip-on and the version of the "1992 Holiday Season" clip-on from the 1992 Classics release of 101 Dalmatians (1961), only the announcer is heard.
  • On the "1992 Holiday Season" clip-on and the "Special Preview(s)" clip-on from the 1992 Classics release of Beauty and the Beast (1991), a triumphant horn fanfare beginning with a trumpet flourish is heard instead of the normal music ("Fanfare to the Modern Man 3" by Richard Hill, from the Bruton Music library, album BRG 09 - The Will to Win).
  • On the "Now on Videocassette" clip-on, the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video theme is heard instead of the normal music.
  • Coming to Home Video:
    • On the 1992 Classics VHS release of The Rescuers, the shortened version of the opening to “Great Ovation” is heard 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 Walt Disney Company Intro (described in greater detail further down this page) had Beau Weaver announcing, "Thanks for joining us for this special preview. And now, our feature presentation!". The music's volume is lowered in this version. It was first used on the 1996 VHS release of Toy Story and was last used on the 1998 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of Hercules (1997).
    • On the 1992 Classics VHS release of Beauty and the Beast (1991), the first note of the music is cut.
    • From the 1997 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of Fun and Fancy Free through Hercules (1997), half of the first note of the 1996 variant is cut.

Availability: Rare written all over it for all clip-ons except the "Feature Presentation" clip-on.

  • The "Feature Presentation" clip-on first appeared on the 1992 Classics VHS release of 101 Dalmatians (1961) and was used unaltered on all subsequent Classics and Masterpiece Collection titles, until the updated version was introduced on the 1996 VHS release of Toy Story. The original unaltered version returned on 1999 Masterpiece Collection releases that lacked a custom opening, as well as a few direct-to-video specials like The Brave Little Toaster to the Rescue, which is rather odd considering that the other clip-ons used on VHS releases from this time were based off the 1994 clip-ons. The final VHS tapes to use this were Madeline: Lost in Paris, Belle’s Tales of Friendship and Hercules: Zero to Hero (the latter two were released on the same day). It was also seen on the original VHS releases of some miscellaneous films released by Disney, such as Heidi (1993), Toy Story, 101 Dalmatians (1996), The Santa Clause, Gordy, and A Goofy Movie. It also made a surprise appearance on the 1993 demo VHS release of Pinocchio.

Editor's Note: Fondly remembered among VHS collectors and Disney enthusiasts, these bumpers' eye-grabbing color schemes and fonts surprised some and captivated others. These were the first attempts at Disney clip-ons using consistent branding, preceding the below clip-ons by one month; however, following the 1992 Classics VHS release of Beauty and the Beast, the clip-ons were used less and less, as a majority of tapes only ever used the "Feature Presentation" clip-on.

  • FEATURE PRESENTATION
  • FEATURE PROGRAM

Trivia: The "A SPECIAL MESSAGE after our feature" clip-on is unique among Disney clip-ons for not using the term "preview" to refer to post-movie content. Contrary to the wording on the clip-on, this was only used on tapes that had a single preview at the end.

Variants:

  • On the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" clip-on, the text swiftly 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.
  • On the "FEATURE PROGRAM" clip-on, the text simply zooms in, and is in a different font.
  • On the "NOW AVAILABLE TO OWN ON VIDEOCASSETTE" clip-on, the text is in a different, bolder font.
  • An extremely rare sub-variant of the "Now Available on Videocassette" and "Own This BIG HIT" clip-ons features a still version of the 1993 "WDHV Presents" logo, which fades to the ID.
  • On the 1993 VHS reissues of Paradise, Deceived, Billy Bathgate, and The Doctor, the "HIT MOVIES You Can Own" ID animates like the "FEATURE PROGRAM" ID, except at a slower pace, and the text looks thicker and includes a drop shadow.
  • Demo VHS tapes used a Korinna font for the clip-ons instead.
  • On the "Stay Tuned For More Great Scenes From The Very Best Of The Ed Sullivan Show After Our Feature" clip-on, most of the text is light blue, and "The Very Best of The Ed Sullivan Show" is yellow.
  • On the “Nationally Advertised Availability April 10th” clip-on, the text is light blue.
  • The demo tapes of Super Mario Bros. (1993), Hocus Pocus and The Crow feature a special bumper with the movie's logo on top, and "BEHIND THE SCENES" below it, which cross-fades to the "PREVIEWS" clip-on.
  • U.K. clip-on variants of this bumper exist, as described below.
  • "Feature Program" clip-on variants:
    • On some Jim Henson Video VHS tapes and the 1995 VHS release of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, it takes place on a green background, and the text is in a white 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 VHS 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 on Disney's Haunted Mansion tapes.
    • On Disney's Happy Holidays with Darkwing Duck and Goofy, 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 VHS 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 VHS 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 VHS tapes, the text is in a Revue font and it takes place in Dave's camera room.
    • On some Alvin and the Chipmunks VHS 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 VHS 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: Unlike the previous clip-ons, the introduction of "Great Ovation" is only used on the "Coming to Videocassette", "Coming Soon On Videocassette", "Feature Presentation", "Now Available to Own on Videocassette" and "Also Coming On Videocassette" clip-ons. The two "Special Preview(s)" clip-ons used "Fanfare to the Modern Man 3" from the previous ID. All other clip-ons used the 1991 WDHV theme, or the Jim Henson Video theme (which is a slowed down version of the 1991 WDHV theme). Brian Cummings announces one of the following:

  • Coming to Videocassette: "Coming soon on videocassette."
  • Now Available on Videocassette: "Now on videocassette!"
  • Own Your Favorite HIT MOVIES: "Now you can own your favorite hit movies!"
  • HIT MOVIES You Can Own: "Look for these hit movies that you can own!"
  • Own This BIG HIT: "Don't miss owning this big hit, from Touchstone Home Video."
  • After our feature MORE GREAT PREVIEWS: "Stay tuned after our feature, for more great previews."
  • A SPECIAL MESSAGE after our feature: "Stay tuned after our feature, for a special message."
  • Special PREVIEWS: "Be sure to stay tuned after our feature, for a special look at something new and different from Buena Vista Home Video." (Announced by a deep-voiced announcer, Grant Goodeve, instead of Brian Cummings)
  • Special PREVIEW: "Stay tuned after our feature."
  • Look For This HIT MOVIE: "Look for this ownable hit, from Touchstone Home Video."
  • Look for these ACTION HITS: "Look for these action hits, from Hollywood Pictures Home Video."
  • STAY TUNED after our feature...: "Stay tuned after our feature, for a special music video."
  • Coming to Video THIS FALL: "Coming to video this Fall."
  • Rent This NEW RELEASE: "Now you can rent this new release, from Walt Disney Home Video."
  • Now Available to Own on Videocassette: "Now available to own on videocassette." (This voiceover was later used for the 1994 clip-on version of this bumper.)
  • Nationally Advertised Availability April 10th: "Now on videocassette!"
  • Stay Tuned For More Great Scenes From The Very Best Of The Ed Sullivan Show After Our Feature: "Stay tuned after our feature."
  • Coming To Home Video: “Coming from Touchstone Home Video.”
  • Stay Tuned For Other Exciting Previews: "Stay tuned for other exciting previews following our feature presentation."
  • Also Coming From Touchstone Home Video & Hollywood Pictures Home Video: “Coming soon on videocassette.”

  • Also Coming On Videocassette: "Coming on videocassette."
  • Behind the Scenes / PREVIEWS: "Before our feature begins, here's a look behind the scenes of [NAME OF MOVIE], plus some previews of soon-to-be released videos!"
  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation."
  • Feature Program: "And now, our feature program."

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On Malaysian and Signaporean releases, the "Feature Presentation" clip-on is higher pitched than usual. The "Now Available on Videocassette" clip-on on these releases (as well as Filipino releases) is silent.
  • On the "A SPECIAL MESSAGE" clip-on, only the music is heard.
  • On the two clip-ons from the demo release of Frankenweenie, the "Coming To Home Video" clip-on, the "Stay Tuned For Other Exciting Previews" clip-on, the "PREVIEW $45 Million Dollar Box Office Hit" clip-on and the "BEHIND THE SCENES / PREVIEWS" clip-on, only the announcer is heard.
  • After the behind the scenes segment on the demo tapes of Super Mario Bros. (1993), Hocus Pocus and The Crow, the "PREVIEWS" clip-on reappears, but is silent.
  • Now Available on Videocassette:
    • On the original 1992 VHS release of A Woman Under the Influence, the first tape to include this clip-on, the announcer says, "Ask your video dealer about these hit titles from Touchstone Home Video."
    • On the 1993 Studio Film Collection releases of The Shaggy Dog (1959), That Darn Cat!, and Escape to Witch Mountain, only the music is heard.
    • On 1994 Family Film Collection releases, the announcer says, "Now available to own on videocassette."
    • On later printings of the 1994 VHS release of The Three Musketeers, the "Great Ovation" audio from the 1990 "Now On Videocassette" clip-on is heard instead of the 1991 WDHV theme.
    • On the 1993 VHS releases of The Ernest Green Story, Perfect Harmony, Back Home, A Friendship in Vienna, Not Quite Human 2, and Still Not Quite Human, Cummings’ voiceover is calmer.
  • Coming to Videocassette:
    • On early printings of the 1992 VHS release of Father of the Bride, the opening notes of "Great Ovation" are low pitched and slower to accommodate the length of the voiceover. In addition, a different, deep-voiced announcer named 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 early printings of The Three Musketeers and reissues of The Mighty Ducks, Brian Cummings says, "Coming soon to videocassette."
  • Own This BIG HIT:
    • Sometimes, Brian Cummings’ voiceover is slightly delayed and he 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!.
    • On the 1993 VHS release of Baby: Secret of the Lost Legend (as well as a 1996 reprint), Cummings adds, "...from Touchstone Home Video."
    • On the 1993 VHS releases of Not Quite Human, Chips the War Dog, and Ollie Hopnoodle's Haven of Bliss, Brian Cummings says, “Now you can own this big hit.”
  • HIT MOVIES You Can Own:
    • On the 1993 VHS reprints of Paradise, Deceived, Billy Bathgate, and The Doctor, Cummings adds, "...from Touchstone Home Video!"
  • After our feature MORE GREAT PREVIEWS:
    • On the 1993 VHS release of A Stranger Among Us (the first release to use this bumper), Cummings says, "After our feature, stay tuned for more great previews."
  • Feature Presentation:
    • On the 1992 VHS release of So Dear to My Heart, the same audio that accompanied the 1989 Feature Presentation clip-on was heard instead.
    • On the original 1992 VHS release of Father of the Bride (the first new release to use this bumper), Grant Goodeve says, "And now our feature presentation."
    • On most May 1992-September 1993 VHS tapes, Brian Cummings says, “And now, for our feature presentation!”

Availability: Like before, rare written all over it for a majority of the clip-ons mentioned.

  • The "FEATURE PRESENTATION" clip-on first appeared on the 1992 WDHV VHS reprints with the "NOW YOU CAN OWN THESE HIT TITLES..." bumper, such as The Rocketeer, White Fang, Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Return to Snowy River, and Shipwrecked. It made its first new-release appearance on early printings of Father of the Bride, and was last seen on the 1994 Family Film Collection VHS releases.
    • In the U.K., this particular clip-on variant continued to be used until 2004, as described below.
  • The "Now Available on Videocassette" clip-on was slightly more sporadic, primarily appearing on reprints of VHS tapes like the 1994 reprint of The Three Musketeers.
  • The “FEATURE PROGRAM” clip-on made its debut on the 1992 VHS release of A Classic Christmas from The Ed Sullivan Show. It later appeared on reprints of the 1991 VHS of Mr. Destiny and early printings of the 1998 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Black Cauldron (despite both being full-length, theatrically-released movies), as well as the 1998 VHS releases of The Spirit of Mickey, Disney Princess Collection, The Brave Little Toaster (also a theatrical feature) and The Brave Little Toaster Goes to Mars.
  • In Malaysia, it was still used on releases until 2000, with one example being The 13th Warrior.

Editor’s Note: Both the appearances of each clip-on and their respective musical cues are considered unsettling for some, but this set of clip-ons are otherwise tamer than they look. The inconsistent use of capital and lowercase letters on some of the clip-ons is worth noting, and the "STAY TUNED after our feature..." clip-on features some noticeable audio splicing after the announcer says "special". This branding would later be used for the 1995 Walt Disney Home Video logo, which acted as a placeholder logo on lower-priority live action VHS releases.

May 27-Late 1992

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.

Music/Sounds: The music of either logo, along with Grant Goodeve saying one of the following:

  • Hollywood Pictures Home Video variant: “Coming from Hollywood Pictures Home Video.“
  • Buena Vista Home Video variant: “Now, from Buena Vista Home Video.”

Availability: Extremely rare. Both variants appear on Touchstone Home Video’s 1992 VHS release of Father of the Bride, while the latter can also be seen on Buena Vista Home Video’s 1992 VHS release of A Classic Christmas from The Ed Sullivan Show and reprints of the 1991 VHS of Mr. Destiny.

May 27, 1992

Walt-Disney-HV These-Hit-Titles.png

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 the 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, all of which were kept in print into the late 90s.

Editor’s Note: The black background, along with the sudden appearances of the text and WDHV logo and the voiceover, may surprise some.

1992-1996

Jim Henson Video Feature Presentation logo.png

Availability: Slightly common. Can be found on VHS releases of The Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Classic Theater, and the 1996 VHS issue of Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas. VHS copies of The Muppet Movie and The Great Muppet Caper that don't have the aforementioned Feature Program ID have this, too, as well as the variants.

Editor's Note: A tame bumper despite some off-putting factors such as the 1989 Jim Henson Productions logo following this.

July 17-October 30, 1992

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

Variant: On The Great Mouse Detective, the lines are double-spaced and “Thanksgiving 1992” is in place of “The 1992 Holiday Season”.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on the 1993 VHS release of 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.

Coming to Theatres from Walt Disney Pictures.png

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 (1994).

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. This was exclusively used on earlier copies of the 1993 Classics VHS release of Aladdin (1992).

Availability: The former variant is seen on the 1993 VHS copies of Aladdin (1992) and The Muppet Christmas Carol, and the latter variant is seen on the 1994 Classics VHS release of The Fox and the Hound. On all three tapes, it follows a preview for The Lion King (1994).

Editor's Note: The dark color of the text against the black background makes the text difficult to read.

Trivia: On the 2003 VHS release of They, the "Coming Soon from Disney Interactive" clip-on precedes a trailer for Tron 2.0 Killer App, released by Buena Vista Interactive, not Disney Interactive.

  • Feature Presentation
  • Feature Program
  • Previews (Only seen on demo tapes released by Dimension & Warren Miller)

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 likely due to a splicing error. The clip-on fades in silently at the end of the trailer for Sailor Moon on the same tape, which is simply the English intro to the show.
  • 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 "PREVIEWS" clip-on, no flash accompanies the text zooming out.
  • The "NOW APPEARING" clip-on 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.
  • On the Crow clip-ons, the Crow symbol zooms out, and after the second flash, the text appears.
  • "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.
    • On the 1998 Walt Disney's Film Classics VHS release of Old Yeller, the text is already in place on the blue background and the ID is still.
  • "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 an 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 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 on Video and DVD: "Now available on video and DVD."
  • Coming Soon on Video and DVD: "Coming soon on video and DVD."
  • 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."

  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation."
  • Feature Program: "And now, our feature program."

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the Disney Interactive clip-ons, the orchestral hit is held for longer and a choral 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" clip-on, 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.

    • 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, the 1997 Widescreen VHS release of From Dusk Till Dawn, and the 1997 VHS release of Il Postino (The Postman), Brian Cummings says, "Stay tuned after the feature for a very special message. And now, our feature presentation."
      • This variant also appears 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, Touchstone, Hollywood, Miramax and Dimension VHS tapes issued during the mid-to-late-Nineties, premiering on the limited 1994 VHS release of The Crow and making its first proper appearance on the 1994 VHS release of Holy Matrimony. The "Feature Program" variant was seen on the direct-to-video Beauty and the Beast sequels and the 1998 reprints of Winnie the Pooh: Frankenpooh and Spookable Pooh. The last proper appearance of the Flashbang clip-ons on a high-profile release was on the 1999 VHS of Instinct, though they continued to be used until 2001 on Warren Miller Entertainment VHS releases such as Ride and Fifty, and on Dimension Home Video VHS releases into 2003 such as the first two Scary Movie films, Scream 3, Confessions of Sorority Girls, The Accidental Spy, The Crow: Salvation, Dracula 2000, Halloween: Resurrection, early printings of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and the final release with them in general, Mimic 3: Sentinel (higher profile Dimension releases - the two Spy Kids films, The Others, and later prints of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back - instead used the Filmreel clip-ons). On DVD, the "NOW AVAILABLE TO OWN ON VIDEO AND DVD" clip-on can be seen on the original 1999 DVD release of Enemy of the State (three times, appearing in-between trailers).

Editor's Note: This set of clip-ons is known for its omnipresence on many releases from both Disney and their subsidiaries, as well as its startling nature and its sporadic appearances on tapes that otherwise have different sets of clip-ons.

March 3, 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. Both variants appear before and after a trailer for Pocahontas, respectively.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None on the opening variant; the end of the song "Colors of the Wind" from the Pocahontas trailer on the closing variant.

Availability: This can only be seen on the 1995 Masterpiece Collection VHS releases of The Lion King (1994).

April 24, 1996-February 1, 2000

Nicknames: "Walt Disney Company Intro", "Something New and 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 (1996): 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 as 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 (1997): Herc awkwardly gesturing.
  • Scenes from the Hunchback of Notre Dame stage show at the Disney-MGM Studios and the Big Thunder Mountain Railroad attraction at the Magic Kingdom.

Afterwards, the introduction fades into one of the first three bumpers listed below:

Bumper B:

  • Coming to Theaters: A movie theater with the curtains raising, revealing a screen with the 1990 updated version of the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo. Tinkerbell flies in and waves her wand in animation reused from other bumpers of the time to start the preview for the movie. The screen on the movie theater zooms in to take up the entire screen, and the trailer begins.
  • Coming to Videocassette: A TV in a living room shows a scene from Fantasia with Mickey Mouse putting the sorcerer's hat on, which cuts to a family watching the TV happily. The TV is then shown once more, this time with the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video logo on the screen, which zooms in to start the trailer.
  • Walt Disney World: 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 aforementioned animation of Tinkerbell waving her wand to transition to the ad.
  • Disney Interactive: A clip of a kid playing a Disney Interactive Animated Storybook game. Tinkerbell flies over and changes the computer screen to the Disney Interactive logo, which flashes on a moving purple space background with black text. The logo is then seen as a still on a black background with white text before the ad starts.
  • Feature Presentation: Just the standard Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo without any modifications.

Variants (Bumper A):

  • There is a prototype variant seen on the 1996 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Aristocats, the first tape to use these bumpers, with different clips. They are:
    • Pocahontas: Pocahontas and Meeko go down a waterfall on their canoe.
    • A shot of the entrance of 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 from Beauty and the Beast, guests going down the final drop on Splash Mountain, and a clip from the final scene of The Lion King (1994).
  • On the 1996 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of Oliver & Company, the Pocahontas clip was replaced by a clip from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) (of Quasimodo sliding down a rain gutter), and the clip of the mother watching TV with her two children was replaced by the clip of the little boy and his father watching TV together.
  • Another early variant is seen on the 1996 VHS release of Toy Story. Here, instead of the clips from Bambi and Hercules (1997), clips from Pocahontas (of Pocahontas and Meeko going downstream in their canoe) and The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) (of Quasimodo sliding down a rain gutter) were used. The ABC logo on the TV screen is a still of the logo instead of the animated version seen in later versions of the intro.
  • On the first, recalled printing of the 1999 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Rescuers, Beau Weaver simply says, "You can always count on something new and exciting from Disney!" at the end of the bumper without adding anything over the following bumper.

Variants (Bumper B):

  • Coming to Theaters:
    • On the 1996 Masterpiece Collection VHS releases of Oliver & 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 release, a brief scene of a man's hand drawing character designs for Quasimodo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996) is seen on the theater screen before the bumper, and the Masterpiece Collection theme is instead replaced with a dreamy string / woodwind tune common on other pre-preview bumpers on Disney tapes from this period, followed by the music for the trailer.
    • On some 1998 Masterpiece Collection VHS releases like Hercules (1997) and Peter Pan (1953), the announcer says, "Join us now for a special preview from Walt Disney Pictures!"
  • Coming to Videocassette:
    • On the 1996 Masterpiece Collection VHS releases of The Aristocats and Oliver & Company, Beau Weaver 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 & Company song, "Why Should I Worry?". The announcer is still heard. This was most likely due to a video processing error or a splice, as Oliver & Company was not being advertised.
    • On the 1997 VHS release of 101 Dalmatians (1996), Beau Weaver says, "Enjoy all the magic at home with this great Disney movie coming to video!".
    • Three VHS releases don't have the WDHV logo on the TV screen during the "Coming to Videocassette" bumper:
      • On the 1997 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), instead of the WDHV logo, the 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo is seen taking up the entire screen.
      • On the 1997 VHS release of 101 Dalmatians (1996), instead of the WDHV logo, Winnie the Pooh with the words "Once Upon a Time..." above him is seen.
      • On the 1998 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of Lady and the Tramp (1955), instead of the WDHV logo appearing on the screen, the first scene of the trailer for The Jungle Book: Mowgli's Story (a scene of Colonel Hathi shouting) is seen.
      • On the 2000 VHS releases of Tarzan and Toy Story, the 1999 version of the bumper is seen as usual, then the 1991 WDHV logo fades in to the Disney DVD logo, which shines and zooms out of the TV screen. Beau Weaver says, "Enjoy all the magic at home with these great Disney movies coming to video and Disney DVD!"
  • Walt Disney World:
    • On the original 1996 VHS release of Toy Story and the 1997 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996), the first two clips in the "Walt Disney World" bumper are of the Main Street Electrical Parade and the Cinderella Castle at Magic Kingdom. Beau Weaver says, "And now, Walt Disney World celebrates its 25th anniversary!".
  • Disney Interactive:
    • On the 1996 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Aristocats, Tinkerbell is mirrored from her usual position. Beau Weaver says, "And, here's what's new from Disney Interactive!".

FX/SFX:

  • Bumper A: The clips in 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 then fades into the Toy Story clip. At the end of the montage, the cross-fade to any three of the possible "Bumper B" bumpers.
  • Bumper B: For the Coming to Theaters bumper, the curtains coming up, Tinkerbell flying, and the theater screen zooming to fill the TV screen - a mix of live-action and 2D animation. On the Coming to Videocassette bumper, the image on the TV screen zooming in to fill the screen at the end of the bumper.

Music/Sounds (Bumper A): The 1985 Walt Disney Pictures logo theme, followed by the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection theme (which plays into whichever bumper follows the intro). While this plays, 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 music, fading into the music for the trailer. Beau Weaver is heard saying, "Join us for a special preview from Walt Disney Pictures."
  • Coming to Videocassette: Either a dreamy string / woodwind tune if the bumper is seen on its own, or the end of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection logo music if it's connected to the Walt Disney Company Intro as the second bumper. Beau Weaver says, "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 would later be used on the ABC bumpers. Beau Weaver says either "Let's see what's in store for you, from Disney Interactive." or "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!" during the last few seconds.

Music/Sounds Variants (Bumper A):

  • The prototype version used a slightly different announcement: "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 (1996), 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 the 1999 VHS releases of The Rescuers, 101 Dalmatians, A Bug's Life and The Great Mouse Detective, the 1992 bass-distorted version of the Walt Disney Classics theme is heard instead of the Masterpiece Collection theme during the second half of the bumper. Beau Weaver's announcement was also re-recorded.

Availability: It can be seen on WDHV 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 Masterpiece Collection releases of The Aristocats and Oliver & 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. These bumpers brought some much-needed consistency to Disney branding; the variations of each bumper are very slight compared to the clip-on sets on prior Disney releases.

November 11, 1997

Now Available on CD and Cassette.png

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 31, 1998

Opening_to_The_Little_Mermaid_1998_VHS

Opening to The Little Mermaid 1998 VHS

Nicknames: "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 for Mulan (1998).
  • Coming Soon to Theaters (B): After the trailer for Mulan (1998), 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 for 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 Masterpiece Collection 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 Masterpiece Collection video release of Lady and the Tramp (1955).
  • 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 an 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 a 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 Masterpiece Collection VHS issue of The Little Mermaid.

Editor's Note: Disney's first attempt at a set of custom VHS bumpers. This practice would later be replicated on the 1999 VHS release of Mulan, using shorter clips compared to this set of bumpers.

October 27, 1998

Nicknames: "Walt Disney Company Intro II"

Bumper A: A light moves over from a black background, and a white flash appears. The flash reveals itself 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 (1961) 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 (1998), 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 (1998) 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 (1998), and it cuts back to the countdown, only this time it reads "fun" instead of "action". Finally, it cuts to a clip from Mulan (1998) 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 (1961), The Rescuers, Mulan (1998) and Mighty Joe Young (1998), 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 films, the moving blue television static background, and the text for both boxes fading in.

Music/Sounds (Bumper A): A techno hip hop tune with whooshes and 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 Brian Cummings saying, "Coming soon to theaters from Walt Disney Pictures." or "And coming soon, from Walt Disney Home Video.".

Music/Sounds (Bumper C): A whooshing sound when the flash appears, followed by Brian Cummings saying "And now, Disney proudly presents: The Lion King II: Simba's Pride!"

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

Editor's Note: A failed attempt to replace the 1996 Walt Disney Company Intro and its corresponding bumpers, this ambitious set of bumpers were only used for one tape. The concept of the filmstrips seen in this intro might have been reused for the 1999 clip-ons.

February 2, 1999

Opening_to_Mulan_1999_VHS_True_HQ

Opening to Mulan 1999 VHS True HQ

Nicknames: "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; this 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 Collection release of 101 Dalmatians (1961).
  • 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 early printings.
  • 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: "Please stay tuned after the previews for a special behind-the-scenes look at an upcoming Disney animated entertainment event!"
  • 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!"

  • Feature Presentation: "And now, our feature presentation!"

Availability: Seen on the 1999 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of Mulan (1998).

Editor's Note: Similarly to the custom intro to the 1998 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Little Mermaid, all the bumpers in this intro are blended into the start of the trailers (in rather creative ways).

October 26, 1999

Bumper: Over a random clip of Pinocchio, a clip-on appears.

Clip-ons:

  • Coming Soon to Own on Video
  • Available This Holiday Season

  • On the “Feature Presentation” clip-on, Brian Cummings cheerfully exclaims, “And now, our feature presentation!”

Availability: This custom bumper set only appears on the 1999 60th Anniversary VHS release of Pinocchio (1940).

Editor’s Note: The “...To Own on Video” and “Feature Presentation” announcements were later used in the 2000-06 IDs. Along with the two sets of bumpers listed below, these were used as placeholders.

November 9, 1999

Bumper: Same as the previous ID, except with Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas.

Sneak Peeks menu

Nickname: "Filmreel"

Bumper: We see one of the following clip-on texts - some of which slides down while the other section of text slides to the right, respectively, before settling. There is a pink rectangular block on the top (moving towards the bottom of the screen), a gold rectangular block at the top moving to the right, a transparent block moving to the left (forming into a backing for the top clip-on text), golden lines moving in from every side and a gold rectangular block that forms from the right going toward the left side of the screen (the bottom clip-on text will usually end up in this block). Film reels are slowly spinning in the blue-tinted background.

Trivia:

  • Early DVD releases by Disney and its subsidiaries did not allow viewers to skip the previews. Because of subsequent backlash, the ability to jump directly to the main menu at any time was added. In August 2000, text regarding such an option was added to the first clip-on on the disc (more on that below), although the 2001-04 DVD releases of Just Visiting and My Baby's Daddy, which use only one clip-on, feature no additional text. This ability was also provided by Disney's Fast Play, which was introduced in 2004, except on discs with it, there were no bumpers in-between trailers until 2010.
  • Some 2000 DVDs, such as The Sixth Sense, Mumford, and Mission to Mars, featured the same previews as on the disc's opening accessible from the main menu, except the option is entitled "Preview Trailer(s)" and the previews, complete with the original IDs, run automatically (a practice that, except for a "More Sneak Peeks" option in the "Sneak Peeks" menu on the original release of Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure, was later abandoned, only for it to be revived in 2010). Starting with Keeping the Faith, it was officially changed to "Sneak Peeks," although the trailer option was titled "Sneak Peeks" on the earlier-released Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins.
  • Some DVDs, such as Shanghai Noon and Knights, High Fidelity, Newsies, Bringing Down the House, The Recruit, Sling Blade: Exclusive Director's Cut, and Prozac Nation, feature previews before the main menu, but don't offer a "Sneak Peeks" option.
  • Following the Sneak Peeks menu variant's retirement, the menu was reverted back to its 2000-04 design. Discs with this include Everybody's Fine, When in Rome, and the 2010 reissues of the first two Toy Story films. Starting with the DVD release of Alice in Wonderland (2010), the previews play automatically for the first time since 2000 whenever "Sneak Peeks" is pressed.
  • On the 2004 DVD release of Home on the Range, the "Coming Soon to Own on DVD & Video" clip-on appears twice, once before a trailer for the Platinum Edition release of Aladdin (1992), and once again before trailers for the Special Edition release of Mulan (1998) and Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas (the latter of which, unusually for a 2004-06 DVD, appears on the second page of the Sneak Peeks menu on the disc instead of the first).
  • Conversely, on the 2005 DVD release of The Parent Trap: 2-Movie Collection, a preview for Toy Story: 10th Anniversary Edition is shown, despite the "Now Available TO OWN ON DVD" bumper being missing. This could be because of a later reissue of Toy Story 2 being advertised at the preview's very end.
  • Normally, on any DVD with the Sneak Peeks menu variant, if you press "up" on "PLAY ALL," the cursor will move to "MAIN MENU." However, on the 2005 DVD release of The Pacifier, if you go to page 2, then press "up" on "PLAY ALL," the cursor will move to "BACK."
  • Likewise, when pressing down from "PLAY ALL" on the Sneak Peeks menu, it goes to the preview closest to it. However, on the 2007 DVD release of Home Improvement: The Complete Seventh Season, the preview underneath it on each respective page is for Blu-ray Disc and The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause, but pressing "down" instead highlights Wild Hogs or Underdog (2007).
  • On the 2005-07 DVD releases of Father of the Bride: 15th Anniversary Special Edition, Tarzan II and Higglytown Heroes: Heroes on the Move (the latter two of which feature Disney's FastPlay), after playing any or all of the previews on the Sneak Peeks menu, the user is returned to the main menu.
  • The upper text in each clip-on is in lowercase with capitalized letters, while the lower text is in all caps.

Variants:

  • While the upper text in each clip-on remains in a Helvetica Light font (similar to the JCPenney logo), 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 (the lower text having a "motion blur" effect applied), with both the upper and lower texts sliding slowly while inside the screen.
    • In a few 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 left 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.
    • For both "COLLECTOR'S EDITION DVD" clip-ons, the bottom 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 the bumper used) swipes in from the left side of the screen and rotates to face the viewer, settling above the golden strip. The background from the original variant of the Sneak Peeks menu/bumper is used. It would appear this was a prototype bumper that would eventually lead to the 2006 era bumpers, as the 3D text resembles the animation used in those bumpers.
  • From 2000-05, text would appear on the bottom left corner that reads "Press [MENU] to play movie or to select other options." This usually appears on the first bumper used during the previews, and was first seen on the 2000 DVD release of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins (although strangely, it appears over both clip-ons). This text was removed starting with the 2005 DVD release of Home Improvement: The Complete Third Season (the last to use the text was The Golden Girls: The Complete Third Season, released on the same day as the Home Improvement set, November 22, 2005).
    • On the 2004 DVD release of That's So Raven: Supernaturally Stylish, the text appears on the second clip-on instead of the first.
  • UK and Greek DVD releases have the white text "ON VIDEO & DVD" fade in and slide inside the golden strip instead.
    • As a side note, the 2000 UK DVD releases of The Tigger Movie and Tarzan (possibly the first ever DVDs to be released by Disney in the UK to contain previews) features the "Coming Soon to Own on Video & DVD" variant, complete with the voiceover and music, only the bumper fades to black, then to a still card for the first preview.
    • This variant is translated to “Auf video and DVD” on German and Turkish DVDs.
    • This variant is translated to "EN VIDEO ET DVD" on some French DVDs.
    • On DVDs released in Spain, the bottom text is translated to “en video y DVD” and “Titulos que estan or estaran proximamente” is added above.
  • In December 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." This version was first used on the VHS of Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (its DVD counterpart used the "VIDEO & DVD" versions), and made its first DVD appearances on Recess: All Growed Down and Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade.
  • Certain VHS releases, as described above and below this section, use different versions of this bumper that are tailor-made specifically for the release. However, the clip-ons and voiceovers 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 it, and "From Disney & Pixar" (with "From" smaller) is arranged below it. In addition, the text is already partially shown just as the bumper appears. 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 “Now Available on Video” clip-on:
  • There are two variants for the “Now Available to Own On DVD” clip-on:
    • On VHS tapes such as the 2002-05 VHS releases of the Vault Disney Collection series, Sweet Home Alabama, Moonlight Mile, Freaky Friday (2003), Scary Movie 3, The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, and The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, the slide-in is rougher, and the bottom text is in Verdana. Although most DVDs use the second variant, this variant continued usage on Miramax and Dimension titles such as the 2005-06 DVD releases of Don't Be a Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice in the Hood, The Great Raid, Hostage, Tsotsi, Keeping Up with the Steins, Daltry Calhoun, An Unfinished Life, and Bride & Prejudice.
    • On most DVDs, both of the texts are presented in their usual font and slide-in smoothly.
  • There are two variants for the “Previews” clip-on:
    • 2000-01 demo tapes, such as The Kid, crazy/beautiful, High Fidelity, and Chocolat, feature a partly-formed still image of the bumper, and "Previews" sliding in from the left.
    • 2001-04 demo tapes, such as Unbreakable, Jerry Seinfeld: Comedian, Moonlight Mile, and Cold Creek Manor feature the bumper animating as usual, except this time, "Previews" comes down from the top.
  • 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.
    • A still version of this bumper appears only on the 2000 VHS release of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins.
  • 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 written in the Helvetica Light font and appear like this:
    • 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]
  • There are two variants for the “Feature Presentation” clip-on:
    • On the standard "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.
    • On some animated family fantasy movies, a custom "Feature Presentation" bumper is shown like this: We see a CGI version of Cinderella Castle on a cloud, with 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 the same font as the 1st CGI FP bumper from the 1998 Masterpiece Collection VHS release of The Little Mermaid), comes up from the bottom of the screen. After the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" text moves up to the center of the screen, several fireworks fly up and explode behind the text.
  • There are two variants for the “Feature Program” clip-on:
    • An earlier 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 contains the same animation as the second variant of the "Coming Soon to Theaters FROM DISNEY & PIXAR" clip-on, except with "Feature" on top and "PROGRAM" on the golden strip.
  • On the "After the Feature" variant, 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 bumpers don't match 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 this feature for special bonus material"
  • There is an extremely rare variant that is seen on the 2000 VHS release 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.
  • A few of the clip-ons were translated into Spanish and French for U.S. Spanish and French Canadian VHS and DVD releases, respectively.
  • When hitting "Sneak Peeks" on the main menu on most 2004-10 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, after which 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) fade in. Then, several logos for movies/TV shows/TV networks 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 either one of the logos or "PLAY ALL", 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 an additional page of trailers), and "BACK" (which can only be accessed from the second page, and jumps back to the first page). When the viewer selects a trailer they want, the small filmreel inverts and the menu cuts to black, then the start of the trailer. To see an expanding list of logo animations on this menu/bumper, click here.
    • On the original release of The Lion King 1 1/2, the filmreel is slightly thicker. This may be because it was the first DVD designed with this bumper, as the disc files are dated 12/5/03. (Open Range, which uses the normal icon, has its files dating to 12/9/03,)
    • On some earlier DVDs with the original variant, the logos faded in all at once. This can be seen on The Lion King 1 1/2, Brother Bear, The Haunted Mansion, Calendar Girls, Hope Springs, and Ghosts of the Abyss. The first DVD to use animation on the logos was Duplex, which exclusively features a preview for Miramax, whose logo slides in from the right side of the screen.
    • In August of 2004, the boxes were deleted, therefore leaving the background as just plain blue. However, Disney releases continued to use the original variant until October.
    • Later in 2004, the text font and lines became thinner and the background is now slightly darker. 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.
    • Another variant was introduced in March 2005, where the animation runs smoother, the filmreel background is different, and the logo animations run at different times instead of all at once.
    • In some rare cases, the menu appears already formed. So far, this is only known to appear on the 2004-05 DVD releases of Open Range, Under the Tuscan Sun, Freaky Friday (1976), Boy Meets World: The Complete First Season, Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Volume 1 - Day of the Dino, Lizzie McGuire: StarStruck, Lizzie McGuire: Totally Crushed, The Station Agent, Disney Princess Party Volume 1, Disney Princess Stories: Vol. 1 - A Gift from the Heart, Pokémon: Destiny Deoxys, and early pressings of Hostage.
    • 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, and Cold Creek Manor, have the menu (but not the logos) colored darker.
    • On the 2004 DVD release of Bad Santa, after the menu forms and the filmreel disappears, the last part of the menu animation (after the logos fully form and the icon first appears) repeats itself.
    • 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). The gold version is used on any 2009-10 DVD with the custom variants.
      • On the 2004 DVD issues of The Haunted Mansion and Pokémon: Jirachi Wish Maker, the icon appears in the blue version, but when a menu option is selected, it switches to the orange version.
      • On the 2004 DVD issue of Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Volume 1 - Day of the Dino, when a trailer is selected, the filmreel icon turns from silver to light blue with gray holes.
      • On the 2004 DVD issue of Lizzie McGuire: StarStruck, the blue portions appear more purple.
      • On the 2004 DVD issue of The Golden Girls: The Complete First Season, the first page features the blue version, while the second page features the gold version.
      • On the 2004-05 DVD issues of Around the World in 80 Days and Porco Rosso, the filmreel icon is shaded differently.
      • On the 2005 DVD issue of The Last Shot, the second page features another unusual color scheme for the filmreel icon: When navigating the menu, the icon is in green. When selecting a preview, it turns gold. (The first page has the blue version.)
      • On the 2005 DVD issues of Hostage and Cursed, the icon is positioned in odd places: when highlighting "PLAY ALL," "MORE/BACK," or "MAIN MENU," the icon is placed partway through the arrows rather than above them, and when highlighting a trailer, the icon is placed next to the logos rather than on them.
      • On the 2005 DVD issue of My Neighbors the Yamadas, the blue version is used, except the foreground icon is redesigned in that the shape is smaller and "wings" are seen on both sides. (When selecting an option, the normal gold icon is used.)
      • On the 2007 DVD issue of DuckTales: Volume 3, the icon is in green, much like on The Last Shot, except on both pages. Also, when a preview is selected, it turns darker green.
    • Some DVD releases have the logos animate at a choppier framerate, while others have them at a smoother rate.
    • Certain DVDs only have one page of trailers. As a result, "MORE" is deleted.
    • On the 2006 DVD release of Goal! The Dream Begins, the filmreel icon appears approximately 4 seconds into the menu animation.
    • On In Search of Santa and 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 2005 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 2008 DVD release 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. The menu itself is also brighter than usual.
    • On the 2008 DVD release of The Suite Life of Zack & Cody: Lip Synchin' in the Rain, the filmreel icon is replaced with an orange hotel.
    • In the summer of 2008, the menu was drastically enhanced. Here, the background looks slightly realistic (and the filmreels appear to have been placed against the background of the 2007 Blu-ray idents, judging by some brief flashing that occurs), the texts are in metallic silver, “Sneak Peeks” (also now in metallic silver) turns downward to face the viewer and the texts fade in once the logos are in place, and the arrows are thinner and spaced further apart.
      • A 1.33:1 version of this appears on the 2008 DVD release of Scrubs: The Complete Seventh Season, while the rest of the menus are presented in 1.85:1.
    • On the 2008 DVD releases of City of Men and Greek: Chapter Two, the cursor is in red.
    • From 2009-10, the background, cursors, and text/arrow colors would vary depending on the release. The animation of “Sneak Peeks” remains the same, though some releases also leave off the arrows entirely. In some cases, you can see the filmreels. 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. Regular cursor, red text, no arrows.
      • The Proposal: The filmreel background from the earlier versions, tinted in teal with cream yellow bars at the top and bottom. Regular cursor, blue text, no arrows.
      • Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Adventures in Wonderland: A forest scene animated in the style of the show, tinted in pink. Regular cursor, yellow text, no arrows.
      • G-Force: A grid shown through a monitor. Regular cursor, blue text, no arrows.
      • Surrogates: A computer program, with an outline of a person. Regular cursor, blue text, blue arrows.
      • Blindness: A grayscaled version of the normal menu. Regular cursor, black text, light gray arrows.
      • Swing Vote: The American flag. Here, "Sneak Peeks" is already there, and enclosed in a bar with the logos of the two major political parties. Plus, "PLAY ALL," "MORE/BACK," and "MAIN MENU" are in a different font. Custom cursor (a red star), blue text, no arrows.
      • Morning Light: An overhead shot of the sea, with a yacht sailing away and some compasses in the lower left and upper right corners. Regular cursor, yellow text, light blue arrows (although these are a little hard to see).
      • Happy Go Lucky: A beige background of clouds scrolling by. Custom cursor (purple peach), black text, yellow 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 somber 2-note flat electronic synth theme, with electronic beeping in the background, a slight whoosh/choir near the end and Brian Cummings or Beau Weaver announcing the clip-on.

The "Coming Soon TO THEATERS" and "Coming Soon TO OWN ON VIDEO & DVD" bumpers are also silent on the 2000 DVD release of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, as is the "Coming Soon TO OWN ON DVD" bumper on the 2003 DVD release of Daredevil vs. Spider-Man. (The VHS version of the former and the latter's other bumpers, however, use the normal audio.)
  • The "Feature Presentation" and "Feature Program" clip-ons used a flat, somber 4-note synth theme culminating in a distant drumroll.
  • 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 appears on Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection VHS tapes and 2000-02 VHS releases of other family-friendly titles from WDHV and BVHE. It premiered on An Extremely Goofy Movie and last appeared on The Adventures of Tom Thumb and Thumbelina and Monsters, Inc.
  • On the Diamonds variant of the “Join Us...” clip-on, the ID is silent except for Tom Kane saying, "Join us after the feature for a special message from Kirk Douglas."
  • On the demo tape of Inspector Gadget 2, the exact same voiceover from Brian Cummings and music from the standard edition's animated version of the 1992-2006 Stay Tuned ID are heard instead. See this page for more info.
  • 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 its 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.
  • On post-2001 DVDs and titles with the “...DVD AND VIDEO”, “Now Available ON VIDEO” and “...TO OWN ON DVD” clip-ons, Cummings' voiceover is heard in the middle of the bumper instead of the beginning.
  • On most DVDs with the “Coming Soon ON DVD”, “Now Available TO OWN ON VIDEO & DVD”, and “Now Available ON DVD” clip-ons, Cummings’ voiceover is more enthusiastic.
  • On DVDs with the “Now Available TO OWN ON DVD” clip-on, Cummings’ voiceover is more relaxed; more relaxed sounding voiceovers were also used for the "DVD & VIDEO" bumper variants that began usage in 2003.
  • On the 2004-05 DVD releases of Open Range and Prozac Nation, the audio for their respective "Coming Soon TO OWN ON DVD & VIDEO" and "Now Available TO OWN ON DVD" clip-ons is out of sync.
  • The "Sneak Peeks" version had a brief shimmering sound when "Sneak Peeks" appears, then a deep but very calm synth theme (based on the regular idents' music) 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 releases of The Lion King 1 1/2, Cold Creek Manor, Hope Springs, and Veronica Guerin, as well as a couple of DVDs from 2006 (Quack Pack: Volume 1 being one of them) and DVDs with the 2008 variant, the music is slightly longer, with each note being held for one beat longer.
    • On the 2004 DVD release of The Haunted Mansion, most of the shimmering is omitted.
    • On the 2004-06 DVD releases of Miracle, Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock, and Lady and the Tramp: 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition, the theme is one second out-of-sync.
    • On the 2004 DVD release of Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Volume 1 - Day of the Dino, the same music as heard on the disc's other submenus plays.
    • 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 DVDs released from February 2004-June 2005, there are no sound effects corresponding to the logos. On Father of the Bride: 15th Anniversary Special Edition, Tilt: The Complete First Season, and Tarzan II, this variant plays in a repeated loop after the menu finishes animating. The last DVDs not to use any sound effects are Hostage and Cursed; starting with The Pacifier, sound effects were used for the logos, although a sound effect was first heard on the earlier Spider-Man: The Venom Saga, where a slamming sound is heard as the logo for Power Rangers SPD animates.
    • On the 2007 DVD release of Home Improvement: The Complete Sixth Season, the volume is lower than usual.
    • On the 2007 DVD release of The Invisible, the sound effects heard on Primeval (corresponding to logos for Apocalypto, Ratatouille, Renaissance, The Lookout, and Roger Corman) play while the disc's own logos (for Wild Hogs, Ratatouille, Lost: The Complete Third Season, and Becoming Jane) animate, likely due to an editing mistake.
    • On the 2007-09 DVD releases of 8 Simple Rules: The Complete First Season and Bunnytown: Hello Bunnies!, once again, the menu's theme loops after it fully forms, complete with the logos' sound effects.
    • 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.

Music/Sounds Trivia: The music score for this style of clip-on is entirely custom, composed by Walter Werzowa at Musikvergnuegen, who also composed the Intel leitmotif used beginning in 1994, the music of the 1998-2006 Buena Vista Home Entertainment logo, and the Scripps news music package used from 2009-2012.

Availability: Though the availability of each clip-on variant varies, the ID as a whole is really common, since it appeared on numerous VHS tapes and DVDs released under the Walt Disney family of labels (Buena Vista, Walt Disney, Touchstone, Miramax, Dimension, and Hollywood) during this time period. However, they do not appear on most early-to-mid-2000s Dimension Home Video VHS tapes (and possibly some Warren Miller tapes) or Disney DVDs that contain Disney's Fast Play.

  • The bumpers first appeared on the 1999 VHS releases of Disney's Annie and Miramax's The Very Thought of You, both released on the same day.
  • 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 2000-03 VHS releases of Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: The Adventure Begins, Mickey's House of Villains, Sorority Boys, ESPN's Ultimate X: The Movie, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit.
  • The "Now in Theaters" variant was first seen on the 2000 VHS of Woman Wanted. It can be found on the 2003 VHS and DVD releases of Bringing Down the House, the 2005 DVD release of Finding Neverland, and the 2005 VHS release of Darkness, among a few others. It was also apparently intended to be used on the 2000 Gold Classic Collection DVD of A Goofy Movie (preceding a trailer for Fantasia 2000), but both are hidden within the disc files and not used on the actual release (probably because of a release date delay or an authoring mistake).
  • The "ON VIDEO & DVD" variant is seen on UK and Greek DVDs.
  • The "Now Available Collector's Edition DVD" variant can be seen on the 2005 DVD release of The Great Raid.
  • The first DVD to use these bumpers is the 2000 DVD release of Tarzan, and the last to use them are the 2006 DVD releases of High School Musical: Remix Edition and Disney DVD Game World: Disney Dogs Edition - Blue Ribbon Challenge.
  • Some demo tapes, such as Swing and Music of the Heart, use the standard clip-ons instead of the "Previews" one. Conversely, the "Coming Soon TO THEATERS" clip-on appears on a few demo tapes, such as Jerry Seinfeld: Comedian and Moonlight Mile, alongside the "Previews" one.
  • The "VIDEO" variants were last seen in the summer of 2005, examples being A Lot Like Love and The Pacifier.
  • The earlier "Feature PROGRAM" version can be seen on some 2000 tapes, such as Out of the Box: Happy Holidays and the re-releases of the Winnie the Pooh: Storybook Classics and 101 Dalmatians: Christmas. This version reappeared on several tapes from 2005: 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 demo tape of Bambi II, and The Even Stevens Movie. However, some of them are full-fledged movies.
  • The later "Feature Program" version is seen only on the 2002-04 VHS releases of Spider-Man: The Return of the Green Goblin, Schoolhouse Rock!: 30th Anniversary Edition, The Incredible Hulk (1996), Disney's Sing Along Songs: Brother Bear - On My Way, Buzz Lightyear of Star Command: Planet of the Lost, and Disney’s Sing Along Songs: Home on the Range - A Little Patch of Heaven.
  • The Beau Weaver version of the "Feature Presentation" clip-on is extremely rare, as it was only seen on the 2000 VHS releases of Toy Story and Tarzan.
  • The custom "Feature Presentation" clip-on is rare. It appears on the 2001-05 VHS releases of Atlantis: The Lost Empire, the Platinum Editions of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Beauty and the Beast (1991), The Lion King (1994), Aladdin (1992), Bambi and Cinderella (1950) (the last tape to use it), the Special Edition of Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas, and 2001 prints of the Gold Classic Collection reissue of Mary Poppins, among others.
  • The "Sneak Peek" clip-on always precedes the long trailer for The Lion King 1 1/2, and was seen on fall 2003 VHS releases like Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, The Music Man, and George of the Jungle 2. The DVD counterparts skip this clip-on.
  • The "Sneak Peeks" version is, arguably, the most common of all, as it can be seen on many DVD releases of Buena Vista-owned properties from the period. However, since it is more of a menu than a bumper, it can only be accessed by selecting "SNEAK PEEKS" from the main menu of the DVD.
    • The original variant was first seen, in still form, on Open Range and Under the Tuscan Sun. The fully animated version premiered on the original release of The Lion King 1 1/2, and the variant in general last appeared on Home on the Range. The shortened music was first heard, complete with shimmering, on Ghosts of the Abyss.
    • The second variant is the least common, having only been used for a few months in 2004, but it first appeared on the 2004 DVD release of Ella Enchanted.
    • The third variant was used from the end of 2004 all the way until spring 2005, and was first seen on Around the World in 80 Days (2004).
    • The fourth variant, which is the most common by far, was used from 2005-08. It debuted on Beyblade: The Movie - Fierce Battle and made its final appearances on Phineas and Ferb: The Fast and the Phineas and Wizards of Waverly Place: Wizard School.
    • The fifth variant (which debuted two years after Disney's 2000-2006 bumpers were retired) was only used briefly, and can be seen on titles from the last half of 2008, beginning with College Road Trip and ending with The Secret of the Magic Gourd.
    • This menu strangely doesn't appear on Pokémon Heroes, the Masterpiece Edition release of Alice in Wonderland (1951), Winnie the Pooh: Springtime with Roo, Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over, Rounders: Collector's Edition, Jersey Girl, MyScene Goes Hollywood: The Movie, the original release of Sin City, and Pixar DVDs from 2004-08, while some titles such as The Golden Girls: The Complete Second Season, Scrubs: The Complete First Season, and the original release of Apocalypto (reissued by Samuel Goldwyn Films in 2020) 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 an Easter egg when the viewer highlights the bus window on the main menu, to the left of "SCENE SELECTION." On The Great Raid, released later that year, it can be accessed from the special features menu.
    • This menu is usually on the first disc of a multi-disc set, but on most post-2006 TV releases such as seasons 2-4 of Lost, seasons 3 and 4 of Grey's Anatomy, Alias: The Complete Fifth Season, and the first two seasons of Ugly Betty and Brothers and Sisters, it appears on the last disc. (Releases of Home Improvement and The Golden Girls, however, still kept it on the first disc, as did the first season of 8 Simple Rules.) It was also used on the second disc of the 2004 DVD releases of Cold Mountain and The English Patient.

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 can be considered an improvement over the previous one, although the earlier variant was used more often. For the "Sneak Peeks" version, the 2004-06 DVD releases of Duplex, Hu$tle, and Grey's Anatomy: The Complete First Season use this menu despite having only one preview, and the first two still bother to use a "PLAY ALL" option, therefore providing two ways to select the sole trailer. On a positive note, the subdued, soothing atmosphere marks this era of bumpers as a thankfully calmer and more welcoming turn after the tenure of the 1994 era of bumpers.

Clip ons:

  • Coming Soon to Own on Video and DVD

October 30-November 6, 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 on a red background, where 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, flies 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!”

The "Coming This Holiday Season" clip-on also appears on The Very Hungry Caterpillar, which otherwise has the Playhouse Disney bumpers.

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.

April 15, 2002-February 15, 2005 (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

  • On the “Now Available on CD” variant, the rectangles move differently.

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 features a similar beginning to the regular theme, but is otherwise rearranged.
  • 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!"

VHS tapes).

  • 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 2000-2006 FP bumper) and the 2004 VHS releases of Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Day of the Dino and Pokémon: Jirachi Wish Maker.
  • These bumpers do not appear on their DVD counterparts or the 2002-05 VHS releases of Spider-Man: The Return of the Green Goblin, The Incredible Hulk (1996), Spider-Man vs. Doc Ock, and Power Rangers S.P.D. episodes since they contain the filmreel IDs instead.

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

Trivia:

  • In the earliest days of the ID, only three color schemes were used: purple, red, and green. Later in 2007, pink and black and white were introduced. In 2008, starting with No Country for Old Men, aquamarine and dandelion were introduced as well. In 2011, however, most of the color schemes were abandoned in favor of purple.
  • Some DVD releases prior to 2011 only use one color for the clip-ons on the disc. For example, The Invisible and the Special Un-Anniversary Edition of Alice in Wonderland (1951) only feature a red background for the clip-ons.
  • On the 2010 DVD release of Surrogates, the "Coming Soon to Blu-ray and DVD" clip-on precedes a trailer for Everybody's Fine, which wasn't actually released on Blu-ray until 2012, as part of Lionsgate's deal with Miramax that allowed them home video rights to part of their catalog. This could be considered false advertising.
  • The background was originally used for the PSP UMD IDs in orange only.

Variants:

  • The colors of the background, lens flares and sparks of light may differ on each DVD. Color variations include purple, red, green, flaming pink, aquamarine, dandelion, and black and white. This was only used from 2006-11; starting with the DVD reissue of The Incredibles, only purple was used.
    • The international clip-ons only use an orange background.
  • For the home video clip-ons, a blank DVD appears in the upper left corner of the screen.
  • For the "THEATERS"/"Cinemas" clip-ons, a filmreel appears in the upper left corner of the screen instead. The international "In Cinemas" clip-on features an alternate design.
  • 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 dark grey background with a pair of filmreels spinning as opposed to the standard blurry multi-colored background. In addition, the text is shifted further off to the left, "THEATERS" is slightly wider, and "To" comes in from behind the filmreel. This variant appears on the 2006-09 DVD releases of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, Dan in Real Life, Power Rangers: Operation Overdrive - Pink Emerald, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, Power Rangers: Jungle Fury - Into the Jungle, Swing Vote, and Brideshead Revisited.
    • Two variants exist for the "Now IN/in THEATERS" clip-on:
      • On the original variant, "Now" turns downward to face the viewer, while "IN" zooms out and slides all over the screen before settling below "Now." In addition, "IN" is in all caps and in a bold Times New Roman font.
    • On the later variant, "Now in" turns downward to face the viewer, while "THEATERS" does its usual animation.
  • This series of IDs may appear in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen or 1.33:1 fullscreen, depending on the intended aspect ratio of each DVD. However, some 2006-07 DVD releases of widescreen films (such as Invincible, The Prestige, Venus, The Lookout, and Our Very Own) present the bumpers in 1.33:1 instead.
  • A "windowboxed" 1.85:1 version can be found on the 2008-09 DVD releases of Home Improvement: The Complete Eighth Season and seasons 7 and 8 of Scrubs.
  • French DVDs have the international clip-ons translated into French.
  • On the 2007 UK DVD release of The Wild (one of the first UK DVDs to use this bumper), the text "Press MENU to play movie or to select other options." is shown at the bottom of the screen during the "On DVD" clip-on.
    • A French DVD of Glory Road features this same variant, except translated into French.

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 and appearance of each bumper. A couple of whooshing sound effects are also present. Below is a list of the following known music cues:

  • A whimsical fanfare. (This can mostly be heard on 2006-08 releases)
  • An eerie synth tune. (This can be heard on 2006-11 releases such as Invincible, Deja Vu, The Queen, The Prestige, Primeval, Venus, The Lookout, Ratatouille, No Country for Old Men, and Flash Foward: The Complete Series)
  • A fanfare with a triumphant intro and a gentle ending. (This was used from 2007-09, and can be heard on Scrubs: The Complete Fifth Season, Wild Hogs, and the first two volumes of X-Men (1992))
  • A six-note string quartet theme. (This was used from 2007-10, and can be heard on The Lookout, The Hoax, Golden Door, and Greek: Chapter 2)
  • An instrumental rendition of "When You Wish Upon a Star." (This can be heard exclusively on Disney releases from 2008-11)
  • A rock tune. (This was mainly used from 2009-11, and whenever a clip-on appeared before a trailer for Tangled, this was the cue used)
  • An orchestral fanfare that sounds like something you'd hear in an action movie. (Two arrangements exist.) (This was used from 2008-11)
  • A calm piano tune. (This can be heard on The Secret Life of the American Teenager: Season One, Brideshead Revisited, Castle: The Complete First Season, Adventureland, Greek: Chapter 2, Cougar Town: The Complete First Season, Everybody's Fine, and Hannah Montana: Miley Says Goodbye?)
  • A bright electric guitar tune. (This was used from 2009-11, and can be heard on Surrogates, 10 Things I Hate About You: 10th Anniversary Special Edition, Gary Unmarried: The Complete First Season, and the Special 60th Anniversary Edition of Alice in Wonderland (1951))
  • A steel drum-driven theme. (This was used on Disney releases from 2009-11)
  • An orchestral tune, with an operatic wail. (This can be heard on You Again)
  • A bright acoustic guitar tune. (This was used from 2009-11, and can be heard on Confessions of a Shopaholic, The Boys Are Back, Surrogates, and Flash Forward: The Complete Series)
  • A light orchestral theme.
  • A fantasy-like glockenspiel-driven tune. (This can be heard on 2009-11 releases such as Doubt, Power Rangers RPM: Race for Cornith, and Castle: The Complete Second Season)
  • Three glockenspiel notes. (This can be heard on Brothers & Sisters: The Complete 4th Season and Cougar Town: The Complete First Season)
  • An orchestra and glockenspiel tune. (This can be heard on Hannah Montana: The Complete First Season, High School Musical DVD Game, Surrogates, and Gary Unmarried: The Complete First Season)
  • An acoustic guitar tune with a backbeat. (This can be heard on Eli Stone: The Complete 2nd and Final Season and Gnomeo & Juliet)
  • An orchestral tune with some light flute. (This can be heard on Dan in Real Life)
  • A French horn and flute tune. (This was exclusively used on Disney releases from 2008-11)
  • A different calm piano tune. (This can be heard on Miracle at St. Anna, Blindness, Enchanted April, and Private Practice: The Complete Second Season)
  • An orchestra and bell tune. (This was used from 2009-11, and can be heard on such releases as Happy-Go-Lucky and Blindness)
  • An intense orchestral tune, with some bells. (This can be heard on Brideshead Revisited and Swing Vote)
  • A light five-note orchestral tune. (This can be heard on Confessions of a Shopaholic)
  • A rapidly ascending piano/keyboard tune. (These next two cues can be heard on The Last Song)
  • An acoustic guitar tune that starts with one sustained note.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • In 2008, the original set of music cues was replaced with a different set of cues. Some of them are driven by acoustic guitars, while a couple feature prominent electric guitar. However, some of the original cues were still used.
  • Starting in 2011, the music currently used on the Blu-ray equivalent of these bumpers is used as the standard theme (which varies depending on whether the cue used on those bumpers is the one from 2011 or the one from 2012). The original primary cue was first used in 2006 on Invincible, with the "Coming Soon TO THEATERS" clip-on, and wasn't used again until You Again, with the "Coming Soon to Blu-ray and DVD" clip-on. The 2011 primary music cue was last heard on Need for Speed (2014). The second primary cue was first used in 2012 on The Odd Life of Timothy Green, with the "Coming Soon to THEATERS" clip-on.
    • Both of these cues were used on Frozen, with the 2012 cue playing over the "Coming Soon to Blu-ray and DVD" clip-on and the 2006/11 cue playing over the "Coming Soon to THEATERS" clip-on.
  • The international variants only feature the whooshing, except in cases where the "On DVD" clip-on is used in North America.
    • On the 2009 French DVD release of Wall-E, the 2011 primary music cue is higher pitched.

Music/Sounds Trivia:

  • The cues listed above came from the Opus 1 Music Library, the JW Media Library, and the Audio Horizons Music Library from the Spirit Production Music website.
  • On the 2007 DVD release of Ducktales: Volume 3, the same cue is used on both clip-ons.

Availability: Common. It appears on every DVD from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment and its subsidiaries (Touchstone, Hollywood Pictures, Miramax, Marvel, and since 2020, 20th Century Studios) from the 2006 DVD release of The Cheetah Girls 2 onward. Other discs with this ID include the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, Wild Hogs, Deja Vu, The Queen, The Guardian, The Invisible, The Prestige, seasons 6-8 of Home Improvement, Hannah Montana: Pop Star Profile, High School Musical: The Concert: Extreme Access Pass, High School Musical 2, Jump In!: Freestyle Edition, The Lookout, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody: Sweet Suite Victory, Cory in the House: All Star Edition, Return to Halloweentown, Johnny Kapahala: Back on Board, Ratatouille, the 2007-13 DVD rereleases of National Treasure, The Incredibles, Cars, Finding Nemo, and Monsters, Inc., the 2008 reprint of Hannah Montana: Livin’ the Rock Star Life, National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, WALL-E, Confessions of a Shopaholic, Up, Surrogates, The Princess and the Frog, The Sorcerer's Apprentice, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Everybody's Fine, Toy Story 3 and 4, Tangled, Cars 2 and 3, Winnie the Pooh (2011), John Carter, The Avengers, Wreck-It Ralph, Lincoln, Monsters University, the Frozen, Maleficent, and Ant-Man movies, Big Hero 6, Inside Out, The Good Dinosaur, Zootopia, The Jungle Book (2016), Finding Dory, Moana, Beauty and the Beast (2017), Coco, Incredibles 2, Ralph Breaks the Internet, and The Call of the Wild (2020). On FastPlay releases, it first appeared on the 2010 DVD release of Winnie the Pooh: A Valentine for You, although the 2014-15 DVD releases of Toy Story of Terror! and Phineas & Ferb: Star Wars don't contain any bumpers. In 2020, most of the clip-ons seem to have been retired, as Maleficent: Mistress of Evil, The Call of the Wild (2020), and Onward only show the "Coming Soon to THEATERS" bumper.

Editor's Note: While this bumper has faced some criticism for looking cheap, it has largely been praised for being an improvement over previous series of bumpers, thanks to its animation advances and wider selection of musical cues (although its post-2011 limitations to the purple color scheme and one of two musical cues may face some criticism). The variety of colors and metallic typefaces help make each clip-on stand out smoothly as well.

April 3, 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 (2002-10 Disney Channel logo)
  • Coming to (2009-15 Disney XD logo)

Variants:

  • After the trailers on DVD and Blu-ray releases from 2010-11, such as Alice in Wonderland (2010), Toy Story 3, the Diamond Edition of The Lion King (1994), and the 25th Anniversary Edition of The Black Cauldron, 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".
  • A still version is used where the text is replaced with "All films and promotions may not be available in all territories." This version debuted in fall 2009, and appears on DVD and Blu-rays from Disney and its subsidiaries as soon as all the previews are over.
  • On some DVDs and Blu-rays from the early 2010s, 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.
    • A variant of this exists for Toy Story 3, which consists of the logo reveal from the teaser trailer.
    • Another variant exists, which is set over a still frame from the 2006 Walt Disney Pictures logo, and has the first line reading "Stay tuned for exciting Previews..." This is mainly used on Blu-rays from 2015 onward, though some BDs, such as Black Panther, instead use the normal BG.

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. This fanfare debuted on the Blu-ray release of The Odd Life of Timothy Green.
  • The still versions are silent.
  • On the "Sneak Peeks" version, we hear a whimsical tune, which had previously been used on the previous ID from 2006-08.

Music/Sounds Trivia: In 2011, the musical cues were adapted for use on 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. As with the previous bumper, by 2020 only the "Coming to THEATERS" clip-on was shown, and Onward was the last release to use it altogether, though the "Stay tuned for exciting Previews..." bumper is still in use today (but even on that front, uses of it are rare). The "Coming to Blu-ray Disc" clip-on was also used as part of the opening logo on a bootleg DVD of The Wolfman (2010), a Universal film, complete with the fanfare from the shortened WDSHE logo.

Editor’s Note: Many viewers were caught off guard by the sudden appearances of the sparks and the clip-ons as well as the music. Also, since everything is in blue, these clip-ons may cause depressing vibes.

November 6, 2007-August 25, 2009

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), 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 logo) 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, only it would appear out of the fairy dust coming out of the gate, instead of simply fading in. The “WALT DiSNEY PICTURES” variant made its final appearances at the beginning of the 2012 film Treasure Buddies and at the end of the theatrical release of The Lone Ranger (2013).
  • This ID is commonly referred to as "There is only one, Disney" by individuals across the globe.
  • Despite being mentioned in the third version of this ID, which debuted on the 2008 DVD and Blu-ray releases of WALL-E, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian was not released on both formats until December 2nd of that year. Once again, this could be considered false advertising.
  • In terms of release date, the appearances of each version of this ID are very inconsistent.
    • Even after the second version debuted on the 2008 DVD and Blu-ray releases of National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, various titles from mid 2008 continued to use the first version.
    • Even after the third version debuted on the 2008 DVD and Blu-ray releases of WALL-E, various titles from late 2008-mid 2009 continued usage of the second version.

Variant: As mentioned above, the remaining clips in the Disney Castle sequence and selection of titles in the "AVAILABLE ON (DVD logo) AND (Disney 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.

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 post-1991 Morgan Creek logos). 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 (1953) clip, we hear the titular character bellow "Here we GOOOOO!" After the Peter Pan (1953) 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.

Music/Sounds Variant: If you select "Español" at the start of Disney DVDs from 2008-09, the dialogue is translated into Spanish. In addition, subtitle translations for the English text appear at the bottom of the screen, and they are also read aloud.

Availability: Really common. Seen at the beginning of numerous DVDs and Blu-rays released by Disney 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.

  • Some other early discs with this ID include Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the 2007 Collector’s Edition re-release of National Treasure, High School Musical 2: Extended Edition, Underdog (2007), The Game Plan, the 2008 reprint of Hannah Montana: Livin’ the Rock Star Life, Hannah Montana: One in a Million, Twitches Too: Double Charmed Edition, and Snow Buddies, which also contain the print logos for 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 Tigger Movie: 10th Anniversary Edition, 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, My Friends Tigger & Pooh: Super Sleuth Christmas Movie, Wish Gone Amiss, Return to Never Land: Pixie-Powered Edition, Cinderella II: Dreams Come True: Special Edition, and The Aristocats: Special Edition, possibly since these were released as the final titles under the Walt Disney Home Entertainment name. 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 WDSHE logo instead.
  • In the wake of Buena Vista's renaming to Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment in November 2007 and the liquidation of their Walt Disney Home Entertainment label in February 2008, this ID appears on international editions of their DVDs and Blu-rays as well, starting with the 2007 international DVD of Air Buddies.

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

  • Version #1 (November 6, 2007-August 26, 2008): Ratatouille, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End, the 2007 DVD edition of National Treasure, High School Musical 2: Extended Edition, Underdog (2007), The Game Plan, the 2008 reprint of Hannah Montana: Livin’ the Rock Star Life, 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 Platinum Edition 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 20, 2008-August 4, 2009): National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets, The Sword in the Stone: 45th Anniversary Edition, The Jungle Book 2: Special Edition, 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 Rock Star Edition, The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning, The Nightmare Before Christmas: Collector's Edition, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Mickey's Storybook Surprises (U.S. edition only; international editions use the first version), Sleeping Beauty: 50th Anniversary Platinum Edition, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, the 2008 DVD reissues 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, Lilo & Stitch: Big Wave Edition, Bolt, and The Tigger Movie: 10th Anniversary Edition.

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 watching this ID at the beginning of Disney's then-latest DVDs and Blu-rays. Had this ID continue usage on subsequent DVDs and Blu-rays, more recent titles would have been showcased and advertised.

Editor's Note: The "shadow" effect applied to the text doesn't really work on a black background, and the ID overall looks very plain and unprofessional. Also, the dark background and the sudden fanfare might get to some viewers. The lack of an announcer may also startle viewers who are used to the announcers in the domestic IDs.
