Visuals: Against a space background, there is a spinning tawny wireframe globe. A thin diagonal line appears on the globe, and it turns around and zooms out to reveal the words "AN ANDERSON BURR PICTURE". The globe, still spinning, is shown in place of the "O". It fades out shortly after.

Technique: Early CGI, possibly complex hand-drawn animation.

Audio: An eerie high-pitched synth tune. Sometimes, this had a more triumphant four note theme.

Availability: Seen on Terrahawks, Dick Spanner P.I., Space Police, and the pilot for Space Precinct.
