Logo: The Comedy Central is seen with glass flying by on a black background. Suddenly, the logo zooms out, with more glass coming through it. Then a black tilted square zooms out with the text "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" forming. Some of the glass tiles tilt.

Variant: A DVD variant exists. On a black background, we zoom out to reveal a black circle. Then, multiple Comedy Central logos, circling around the ring, zoom out. Then another black circle with more Comedy Central logos zoom out. Some more logos and later many circles zoom out until we finally see one last logo. Multiple shots of it later appear with the logo in different directions. After that, we take a closeup of it as "DVD" slides in. The High Definition version also uses this variant, with "DVD" being replaced by "IN HIGH DEFINITION", sliding in word by word.

Technique: CGI Animation. The variant is mostly 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: Mostly glass sounds, with an audience cheering at the end. The DVD variant uses a hip-hop theme. The High Definition variant uses a different hip-hop theme.
