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

1st Logo
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 basic font. In the middle, there are lines like the CBS/Fox Video logos and at the top, are two iagonal 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: None.

Music/Sounds: The opening theme of the release.

Availability: Extremely rare an, despite its longer lifespan, it is even harder to find then the next logo. This appears on some earlier releases from the company.

Scare Factor: None to low. The sudden music and font can be surprising. But this is tamer than the next logo.

2nd Logo

3-G Home Video - CLG Wiki1986 3-G Home Video logo (Part 2)

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", "The Ear Piercer"

Logo: On a black 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 release of Popeye cartoons from 1992, the logo is on a blue background.

FX/SFX: The zooming of the logo and the revelation of "PRESENTS".

Cheesy Factor: The logo is rather dated, as it was when it was still in use.

Music/Sounds: A very loud whoosh, which is a white noise swooping up and down with the distortion effect.

Availability: Same as the previous logo. Many of their releases are out-of-print and hard to find. Only appeared on some VHS releases of Popeye, Looney Tunes (Porky Pig and Tweety Bird cartoons), Woody Woodpeckerand (possibly) Gulliver's Travels.

Scare Factor: Nightmare. This logo will likely scare children (ironically their target audience) because the whoosh sound comes suddenly after the tracking control warning. The logo is even louder than the 1991 United American Video Corporation "Whoosh of Death" logo.
