(skip to 4:43)

ID: We see Johnny Bravo from the TV series looking at us through binoculars before he moves them down and reveals himself. After this, Johnny does various activities (such as cooking) as logos and scenes for cartoons such as Dexter's Laboratory, Cow and Chicken, and Johnny Bravo are shown. At the conclusion of the scenes, Johnny looks at us as a circle wipe makes him disappear and the Cartoon Network logo zooms in and settles on a black background.

FX/SFX: 90's animation.

Music/Sounds: A cartoony song with trumpets and percussion as well as cartoony sound effects as Johnny says "Hey there, I'm Johnny Bravo, one of Cartoon Network's big new stars! Right after this movie you get a little peek at 3 new Cartoon Network shows, with 4 big new stars that are hotter than a peanut butter and banana sandwich, deep fried. There's that little microscope jockey boy wonder texter, a Spanish-speaking bovine cow and her clucking brother chicken... whatever, and the most gyrating thrill making love machine around... hup! Me, Johnny Bravo! And I even threw in a full-length cartoon for your viewing pleasure, just 'cause I like you! So stick around after the flick my little amigos! Like me, it's worth the wait!"

Availability: Appears on the 1997 VHS's of Cats Don't Dance and Scooby Doo Goes Hollywood.

Opening To Selena 1998 VHS

(skip to 4:40)

ID: We pan around an empty Houston Astrodome as it is decorated to look like a live performance auditorium with spotlights shining down on the stage, with a microphone on it and speakers in front of it. On the fence of the upper seating area, the word "SELENA" is lit. We soon fade to a more zoomed-in pan of the Astrodome and fade out.

FX/SFX: The panning.

Music/Sounds: A male announcer says "Stay tuned after the movie for a documentary presentation of the real Selena, performing an electrifying medley of songs at the Houston Astrodome!"

Availability: Appears on the 1998 VHS of Selena.

Editor's Note: The announcer might surprise some, though it can be especially chilling to hear talk of Selena, as she was shot and killed by her former friend Yolanda Saldívar in 1995.

Opening To L.A

Opening To L.A. Confidential 1998 VHS

(skip to 4:47)

ID: As we start to see various shots of behind-the-scenes footage from L.A. Confidential, the words "Stay Tuned..." wipe in, letter by letter, on the screen in a typewriter font. After two scenes, the words disappear and we see more scenes before a flash cuts the screen to a logo for L.A. Confidential: Off the Record.... We then see interview footage, then more behind-the-scenes footage, before another flash from a camera cuts us to a final screen of us panning back from several copies of the same issue of Hush-Hush with Mickey C's image on the cover.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Music/Sounds: The same stoic-sounding male announcer from above says "Stay tuned after the movie for a special documentary presentation of Off the Record, the real dish on the making of L.A. Confidential. You heard it here first: on the QT, and Very Hush-Hush." Other than this, we hear a song with occasional loud trumpet notes and typewriter sounds as the words wipe in on the screen, a "zap" sound during the cut to the logo, and a "click" sound as the camera flashes.

Availability: Appears on the 1998 VHS release of L.A. Confidential.

Editor's Note: The announcer might surprise some and the music/sound effects, as well as the cuts, might jar some.

Opening To Quest For Camelot-Sing-Along 1998 VHS

(skip to 4:16)

ID: A curtain opens up with a man pointing his hand to it, revealing the VHS casing for The Mighty Kong on a stage. Right after, we see a scene (presumably from the movie) with a monkey being goofy and a woman turning to face us.

FX/SFX: 90's animation.

Music/Sounds: A slow guitar riff-like song plays as a male announcer (most likely Brian Cummings) says "Don't miss a musical sneak peek of the new animated feature The Mighty Kong, right after this video!"

Availability: Appears on the 1998 VHS's of Looney Tunes: Sing-Along and Queen for Camelot: Sing-Along.

Editor's Note: None.

September 22, 1998-2000

ID: On a cordovan background with glasses, flashlights, and yellow outline sketches of Velma looking for her glasses from Scooby-Doo, we see the orange text "STAY TUNED FOR A SPECIAL TRAILER FOLLOWING THIS PROGRAM!" with "SPECIAL" in blue, and a shadow effect applied to the text.

Variant: On some Scooby-Doo tapes, this has a dark-purple-ish blue background with green spooky ghosts. The text is yellow instead of orange and reads "STAY TUNED FOR A BONUS CARTOON FROM (Cartoon Network Logo) RIGHT AFTER SCOOBY-DOO".

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None, except for an announcer saying the text. The announcer appears to be Brian Cummings. However, the variant has a different announcer saying "Check out a bonus cartoon exclusively from Cartoon Network coming up, right after Scooby-Doo."

Availability: The cordovan version is rare, as it is only seen on the VHS release of Scooby Doo on Zombie Island (though it has been sighted on it's 2000 VHS release as well as it's 2002 reprint), but the variant is a little more common, but a little less easy to find, as it was seen on some Scooby-Doo tapes.

Editor's Note: The rather stern announcer of the cordovan version could startle first-time viewers. The purple variant, however, has a somewhat friendlier announcer.

On this background, the metallic cyan words "STAY TUNED" fade in on the bottom of the screen and slide left. As they settle on the bottom-left of the screen, a scene from Will Smith's Wild Wild West music video slides down on the screen, which soon changes to a scene from Enrique Iglesias' Bailamos. As this happens, the background slowly begins to fade out, and we fade out after the Bailamos scene.

FX/SFX: The robot tarantula walking into the distance, the words sliding left, the scenes from the music videos.

Courage begins to get scared and as we cut closer to him, he gets more terrified. Another cut reveals we had been in the eyesight of two monsters. As Courage continues to get even more scared, the two monsters unmask themselves as Shaggy and Scooby; however this causes Courage to scream to the point of losing his teeth. The screen then cuts to the Courage the Cowardly Dog logo (with Courage waving at us) and we fade out.

FX/SFX: 2000's animation.

Cheesy Factor: A shadow pulls open the door, but there's no hand to "follow" the shadow and push it.

Music/Sounds: Just the audio of the short segment, with a horror theme. However, as Shaggy and Scooby pull their masks off, we hear a male announcer say "Coming up after the Scooby movie...". The screen with the logo, however, consists of an accordion and banjo theme with another male announcer saying the words on it as the screen cuts to it.
