Background

Normally on VHS or DVD releases, Nickelodeon will typically replace their normal TV logo with a still screenshot of one of their ID's used at the time. This page features logos exclusively seen on these releases, as well as ones exclusively seen on home media or have also been used as a Nickelodeon Productions logo. These logos used to be on the Nickelodeon Productions page before being taken out, due to making that page too long and thus load very slowly as a result.

1st Logo (August 31, 1993)


Logo: Over a black background, we see a weird-looking 2D Nickelodeon splat logo, which looks like it's been jabbed by a bone several times. Copyright information is below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare.

  • It is only seen on the first four Nickelodeon VHS tapes released by Sony Wonder: Rugrats Volume 1: Tales from the Crib, Rugrats Volume 2: A Baby's Gotta Do What A Baby's Gotta Do, Doug Volume 1: How Did I Get into This Mess and Doug Volume 2: Patti, You're the Mayonnaise For Me.
  • The 1996 re-releases of the Rugrats tapes (from Paramount) plaster this logo with the "Slime", while the Doug tapes were never re-released.

2nd Logo (1993-1995?, 2000-2009)

Logo: Same as the Nickelodeon "Haypile" logo, but with an expanded copyright that says "(C)(year) Viacom International Inc. All rights reserved. Nickelodeon, (NAME OF SHOW), and all related titles, logos, and characters are trademarks of Viacom International Inc."

Early Variant: Sony Wonder releases from the early '90s normally contained a copyright with the release's name on it.

Variants: Strangely, a variant exists without copyright info at all on the VHS version of Oswald On The Go (2004). This may be because the HIT Entertainment logo that preceded it (and 3 Nick Jr. logos/bumpers) already had copyright info, so it would be meaningless to have it appear twice. Despite that, the DVD release does contain copyright info.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None or the end theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On both the Volume 1 & Volume 2 DVDs of The Amanda Show, the audio from the Nickelodeon Productions Lightbulb is used.
  • VideoNow Color releases of All Grown Up have the tail end of the 2nd Klasky-Csupo logo.

Availability: Very common.

  • It originally appears at the end on a few Sony Wonder releases.
  • By 2000, it had appeared at the end on pretty much all Nickelodeon VHS's and DVDs from 2000 until 2009 (with the exception of a few Nick Jr. tapes from that time, which used the "Bone", Little Bear: Let's Play a Game, which used the "Flower", and Little Bear: Little Sherlock Bear, which used the Shark, before switching to this one).
  • Examples include Season 1 of The Adventures of Pete & Pete and all SpongeBob SquarePants DVDs from 2003 to 2009, along with several Nick Jr. shows.
  • This logo also appears on DVD releases of Avatar: The Last Airbender and VideoNow Color releases of All Grown Up.
  • The 2009 DVD of True Jackson, VP: Season 1, Volume 1 is one of the last releases to use the logo.

3rd Logo (April 12, 1994)

Endcap8.png

Logo: Over a black background, we see an orange scribble (that also looks somewhat like a firework explosion) with the Nickelodeon text inside it. Copyright information is below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare.

  • It is only known to appear on the Sony Wonder release of Rugrats: Angelica the Divine.
