Peanuts Home Video

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


1st Logo (1994-1999)


Visuals: There is a blue circle superimposed over a painted background with trees, and inside it are Snoopy and Woodstock. Snoopy is holding a yellow flag reading "PEANUTS" in maroon red, and Woodstock holds up a maroon red sign reading "HOME VIDEO" in yellow.

Variant: On most Peanuts videos, the logo is on a white background with the circle colored in red and the sign reading "HOME VIDEO" colored in blue.

Technique: A still, hand-drawn graphic.

Audio: The promo's music ("Linus and Lucy") with an announcer (John Leader) saying "Introducing Peanuts Home Video!" None for the variant.

Availability: The only releases that used this as an actual home video logo were the "Snoopy Double Feature" VHS tapes, where it is seen between the two programs, but it can be found at the beginning of promos for Peanuts videos on various Paramount family-oriented tapes.

2nd Logo (1999-2003)


Visuals: Over a sandy yellow/whitish gradient background, there is the Peanuts Home Video logo from before zooming in from the top-center of the screen. The logo bounces and flies off the screen.

Technique: 2D animation.

Audio: The beginning of the promo's music ("Linus and Lucy") with Hanna-Barbera-esque boing and slide whistle sounds. A Series 4000 siren whistle was added on 2000-2003 tapes.

Availability: It was first introduced on The Rugrats Movie VHS tape (released in early 1999), and can be found on Peanuts and Nickelodeon tapes from the era.
