"On the Disney Channel" Bumpers

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum

NOTE: Because there wasn't a Canadian version of Disney Channel (until September 1, 2015, when Corus Entertainment brought the name to Canada), these bumpers are not seen on the Canadian versions of all the mentioned tapes.

1st Logo (1999-2000)

Visuals: An iris-in effect brings forth a background full of cartoonish-looking pink, blue and yellow circles moving outward, with zig-zagged edges on them and black particles in them. Over it is the 1997-2002 Disney Channel logo, which consists of a black television screen with Mickey Mouse ears at the top and the word "Disney" on it and "CHANNEL" below it, and inside the television screen is the cast of the Playhouse Disney series Out of the Box dancing around, looking and waving at the audience.

Technique: Computer animation with live-action.

Audio: A "pop" sound, and then a poppy guitar/synth tune (the end of the Out of the Box theme song) with Brian Cummings saying "Be sure to catch all the fun and excitement on the Disney Channel!"

Availability: It debuted on Sing A Sing With Pooh Bear. Also seen on the 1999 VHS releases of The Adventures of Ichabod and Mr. Toad and Winnie the Pooh: Sing a Song with Tigger, as well as The Tigger Movie.

2nd Logo (2000-2001)

Visuals: Just the normal 1997 Disney Channel Originals logo with Mickey Mouse dancing inside the black television set. It appears with the same iris-in effect as the previous logo.

Technique: Same as the 1997 Disney Channel Originals logo.

Audio: Same as the 1st logo.

Availability: Seen on Rolie Polie Olie: It's Halloween!, Rolie Polie Olie: It's Christmastime!, The Book of Pooh: Stories from the Heart, Recess: School's Out, the 2001 re-release of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, and the 2001 VHS print of Spy Kids.

3rd Logo (2002)

Visuals: On a black background, there is the Disney Channel logo from the 2000 Disney Channel Originals logo, and it flashes colors and has a "ghost" waving behind it like it normally would in said logo.

Technique: Computer animation.

Audio: Same as before.

Availability: Seen on the 2002 VHS tapes of The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and The Book of Pooh: A Valentine for Eeyore. It is also seen on certain tapes of Disney Channel Original Movies, such as Miracle in Lane 2 and The Color of Friendship.
