Logo descriptions by Bryanston4ever and Thisisanswer
Video captures by Charles Loftus and Geno Cuddy



Background: 3-G Home Video was a distributor of old public domain cartoons and movies on VHS.


1st Logo
(1981?-1986?)
3-G Home Video

Nicknames: "3-G Triangle's Tame Side", "3-G Segment in a Triangle"

Logo: On a blue background, there is the white text "3-G" in a ugly font. In the middle, there are lines a la the CBS-FOX logo and at the top, are 2 diagonal pointing ends. Below it is "H O M E V I D E O" in the same font as the above text and below that is a triangle-like object, making the logo look like a triangle.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: None. The logo looks like it was made on a Commodore 64 or Amiga computer.

Music/Sounds: The opening music of the program.

Availability: Extremely rare, and despite its longer lifespan, even harder to find than the follow-up logo! This appears on some earlier tapes from the company.

Scare Factor: None to low. The sudden music can be surprising and the font may surprise some, but still, this is far tamer than what followed...


2nd Logo
(1986?-1992?)


3-G Home Video - CLG Wiki


Nicknames: "3-G Triangle's Dark Side", "3-G Triangle from Hell", "3-G Segment in a Triangle II", "And Now I Have Tinnitus", "3-G from Hell", "Nightmare in the Public Domain", "The World's Loudest Logo" "Another Whoosh of Death"

Logo: In a dark background a triangular shape flashes down from blue from the upper right portion of the screen to the center of the screen where the blue fades away, leaving the same logo from before but in black with blue outlines and the font is more straight. This is then followed by a screen with a blue "PRESENTS".

Variant: On a repackaged VHS of Popeye from 1992, the logo is on a blue background.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: The logo is rather dated, as it was when it was still in use. It is something you'd expect from the late 1970s, when Scanimation was all the rage.

Music/Sounds: A whoosh that is so loud it can break your TV's speakers, not to mention your ears.

Availability: Extremely rare. This logo only appeared on videos distributed by the company, many of which are out-of-print and hard to find, even on auction sites such as Amazon and eBay. Appeared on VHS tapes of Popeye, Porky Pig, Tweety, Woody Woodpecker, and possibly Gulliver's Travels.

Scare Factor: Nightmare. This logo will without a doubt scare children, who were ironically their target audience, because the whoosh sound comes suddenly after the tracking control warning and is cranked up to ear-splitting levels. Let's put it this way: it's even louder than the UAV Corporation "Whoosh of Death" logo. That is quite an achievement! The font used for the "3-G" portion of the logo doesn't look too friendly either.
