Visuals: Against the white background, there is a black square with stars in it. Over it is a blue balloon with a crayon drawing of the continents on it and a red string tied to the bottom of it. Under it are the words "UNIVERSAL FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT" in CG Omega font with "UNIVERSAL" bigger and above "FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT" and a red line under it.

Variant: Later in 1994, the word "UNIVERSAL" is replaced by "MCA" in its corporate font in white with its black outline around it and "FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT" is changed into "FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT INC.".

Technique: A still image.

Audio: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: It has appeared on Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories and Mrs. Piggle-Wiggle on Showtime. However, there are VHS releases of said shows that have the logo intact. It is also preserved on DVDs of former and episodes of the latter on Hulu. The "MCA" variant so far, only appeared on the Shelley Duvall's Bedtime Stories episode, "The Christmas Witch".
