(1994-1997)

Logo: On a blue/black gradient background, a white square with a red border on it "floats in" from the right and moves to the center like a piece of paper falling to the floor (hence the nickname). The logo (a stencil-styled big "W", with a red line below the "W", and below the line is a stencil-styled "WORD". Both the "W" & "WORD" are in a cowboy-western font like Courier, Rockwell, or Playbill) zooms out and places itself on top of the square inside the border.

Technique: Simple, but effective CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: Synth noises that resembled a THX Deep Note or silence.

Availability: Rare. It was seen on VHS prints of the first few (mid-90s) VeggieTales episodes, which are very hard to find as they were more commonly distributed by Lyrick Studios. The silent version was seen on Psalty's Salvation Celebration: The Movie and Psalty's Funtastic Praise Party. It might have been seen on other home videos released from the company in that period; one confirmed source is some prints of the original 1995 VHS of VeggieTales: Are You My Neighbor?, but the most common prints of that - and most of the early Everland Entertainment releases of VeggieTales - have literally nothing but the program and the Big Idea Logo.
