Warner Bros. Home Entertainment (Feature Presentation Bumpers)

From the Audiovisual Identity Database, the motion graphics museum


United States

1st Bumper (1994)

Visuals: On a black background, there are the words "Feature Presentation" in bold and in Arial.

Technique: A still, computerized graphic.

Audio: None.

Availability: It appeared on the 1994 demo VHS of Little Giants.

2nd Bumper (2000)

Visuals: The screen fades into a scene from the Season 3 credits of The Flintstones, in which we see Fred, Wilma, and Dino driving up to their local movie theater. Dino, sitting in the back of the car, extends his neck through the "roof" of the car so he can see the screen better. The screen then pans from the Flintstones family to the movie theater screen, which has the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo (the Warner Bros. shield with the Family Entertainment banner around it) resting on a sky background, with the text "FEATURE PRESENTATION" arched in gold above it. There is the Flintstones preparing to watch their movie. The camera then pans into the bumper so that it takes up the whole screen.

Trivia: This was part of a series of Warner Home Video VHS bumpers spliced into clips of classic cartoons in the Warner Bros. film library.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: A segment from the Season 3 opening credits of The Flintstones, with "squeezing" and "popping" sounds coming from Dino extending his neck through the roof of their car.

Availability: Can be found on 2000 VHS tapes of My Dog Skip and Scooby-Doo and the Alien Invaders.

3rd Bumper (2000, 2002)

Visuals: Against a sky background, the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo zooms out, with the text "FEATURE PRESENTATION" arched in gold above it. After the logo zooms out to a comfortable position, Bugs Bunny appears, does his pose, and eats his carrot with the same animation from the Family Entertainment logo.

Variant: There is a (.*) variant of this bumper, which is the same background and the same Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo, but the gold arched text is replaced with "STAY TUNED FOR BONUS FEATURES". An announcer is heard on this bumper.

Technique: CGI.

Audio: The same music as the Warner Bros. Family Entertainment logo, but the ending is cut short. Bugs' carrot munching is also heard.

Availability: It can be found on 2000 VHS reprints of The Goonies, Scooby-Doo in Arabian Nights and Scooby-Doo's Greatest Mysteries, as well as The Powerpuff Girls Movie. The stay tuned variant, though, is only seen on the 2002 VHS of Scooby-Doo.
