Cartoon Network Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


Cartoon Network Video (unofficial later name: Cartoon Network Home Entertainment) is the home entertainment arm of Cartoon Network.

1st Logo (March 19, 1996-1997)

Visuals: Essentially just the 1992-2004 Cartoon Network logo with the slanted word "Video" below on a black background.

Technique: A still, digital graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: Seen at the end of Classic Johnny Quest and Classic Scooby-Doo tapes released by Turner Home Entertainment.

2nd Logo (1999-2001?)

Visuals: This logo mostly consists of a full 45 seconds of cartoon mayhem around a colorful construction site (Top Cat pushes a domino, Chicken from Cow and Chicken gets shot out of a cannon, George Jetson gets pinched on the butt and wedgied, Dick Dastardly gets run over by marbles, Dexter from Dexter's Laboratory pulls a lever which could be related to George's butt being pinched and wedgied, and Hong Kong Phooey slides down a tube and bounces off a mattress). At the end, the Cartoon Network logo is revealed from a tube transition, situated on the construction site.

Technique: CGI mixed with recycled animation by Hanna-Barbera Productions and MGM Cartoons.

Audio: An odd tune constantly broken by the characters' antics.

Availability: It appears on Cartoon Network VHS tapes such as their volume sets. It also appears on the 2001 UK VHS of The Iron Giant, presumably serving as a promo for the network.

3rd Logo (March 22-September 27, 2016)

Visuals: Essentially just the 2010 Cartoon Network logo on a black background.
