1st Logo (May 16-June 30, 1997)

Visuals: On a black background, the HBO logo in red fades in and zooms out towards the left. As it zooms out, the white text "Animation" in a hand-written font, writes out on the right, finishing with the dotting of the "i".

Technique: Computer animation.

Audio: A rising string tone plays as a series of crystal bell notes play for each stroke, finishing with a longer one for the dotting.

Availability: Seen on the first season of Spawn.

2nd Logo (July 11, 1997-June 19, 1998)

Visuals: On a black background, there is a red HBO Animation logo from before, already complete, swaying and zooming to the screen. The word "HBO" looks 3D, but then becomes flat.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: High-pitched zooming sound and a bump.

Availability: Seen on Spicy City and the second season of Spawn.
