HBO Kids Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


HBO Kids Video is the children's division of HBO Home Entertainment.

Logo (1997-2000)

Visuals: On a black background is the 1993 HBO Home Video logo. Then, the same ball from that logo (but the clapperboard is replaced by a camera) appears and bounces on the logo until it falls into the O and into a curtain with toys and planets on it; the curtain is then pulled. Then, on a white background is a jack-in-the-box with the HBO logo in red on it. Then a bunch of colored letters come out of it and form the words "vids kideo". The "v" and "k" switch places to form "kids video", and the jack-in-the-box disappears.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A whimsical synth tune, followed by a Parisian-style synthesized accordion piece with the jack-in-the-box's SFX, and at the end, a child giggles.

Availability: Seen on family releases from the label, such as the four-tape boxset of The Wind in the Willows and Nelvana's NeverEnding Story animated series. Please note that while the print logo appears on the case, disc, or tape label, it may or may not have the actual logo, and will most likely have the then-current HBO Home Video or DVD logo in lieu. An example of this is the DVD release of Babar: King of the Elephants.
