Lumberjack Rabbit (1953, Looney Tunes), The Looney Tunes Show (2011- ): The shield shoots up towards us like normal... but overshoots its mark so that it looks like it's crashing into the screen!

Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird (1985):
Instead of the regular WB logo, the movie opens with Oscar the Grouch singing the "Grouch Anthem". Afterwards, we get a brief 2-D animated segment where a cartoon Big Bird finds an air pump and a balloon. He inflates the balloon and it turns out to be a "W", which pops off and flies into the sky, where it morphs into the "W" in the "WB" shield as the rest of the shield forms around it. While this happens, Big Bird announces that "Sesame Street is brought to you today by the letters W and B." The movie begins afterward.
This logo makes a surprise appearence on the TV Movie Here's Looking at You, Warner Bros., where the Superman theme from John Williams is heard.

One Crazy Summer (1986):
The logo appears as normal. Then suddenly, it turns into a crudely drawn version of the shield, with wiggling clouds. The Warner Communications byline and clouds dissipate as an evil-looking animated pink bunny, who wears a red-white striped helicopter cap (like the one seen in the movie) and has the picture of a No Rhino sign on his body, opens the WB shield from inside. He laughs, and then we zoom into his mouth, seeing the ONE CRAZY SUMMER title zoom in toward us.

Who’s That Girl? (1987):
The Warner Bros. logo with byline appears as animated on a granite background. We zoom up to the logo, the shield opens like a door, and out comes a cartoon Madonna, who closes the shield and poses sexy for the camera. The logo goes up and she moves down to make way for the opening credits.
WB - Who's That Girl?
______________________________________________________________________________________

Daffy Duck's Quackbusters (1988): The 1984 logo starts with only the sky background, but then the shield zooms in as it would on Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies, stopping at its usual place, and then the Warner Communications byline fades in right below. A re-orchestrated version of the fanfare from the LT short You Oughta Be in Pictures starting with a roaring sound as the shield zooms in plays throughout. This comes directly after the Daffy Duck short Night of the Living Duck, which opens the film.

Batman (1989): The WB shield is a metallic orange, and the sky is dark blue. The Warner Communications byline is in a different font.

Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990): Instead of the normal shield logo, a replica of the classic 1936-1964 WB "circles" cartoon logo comes up, with its text and minus the shield ("PICTURES, INC." is removed in favor of "A TIME WARNER COMPANY"). The shield then zooms up with Bugs Bunny riding it, and the text fades out. Daffy Duck then comes on screen, angrily pushes him off the shield ("50 years of you hogging the spotlight is ENOUGH!"), and tries to ride it... well, it doesn't work as good for him :) They also have another Looney Tunes-style ending, with Porky doing the usual "That's all Folks!" ending before Daffy, like before, complains of Porky hogging (no pun intended) the spotlight, saying "60 years of hogging the end title is enough". Daffy tries to say the end line, but like before, is stopped when the shield with Chuck Jones' credit comes out, hitting him in the face. He gets back up and weakly says "Fade out."

Warner Home Video movie intro (1990): The logo begins as usual (with Max Steiner's fanfare playing), until Bugs Bunny interrupts. He pops into the logo and tells the audience that the movie can't begin until you wish him a Happy Birthday. It then cuts to various Looney Tunes clips as a chorus sings "Happy Birthday to You". It then cuts back to Bugs looking rather satisfied. This appeared on an Italian VHS of Caddyshack and a UK VHS of Driving Miss Daisy.
Warner Bros. (1990)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

That "Blooper" Bunny! (1991): Opening: Instead of the normal shield logo, a recreation of "The Bullseye" logo with orange circles, black center and "Bugs Riding the Shield" animation comes up and it is similar to the 1950s Looney Tunes bumper, but the music now has an abridged and high pitched theme of the opening "Lumberjack Rabbit" music with the shield's "twanging" noise intact at the beginning, the title of the logo reads "WARNER BROS. ANIMATION INC.", and the text below the shield now reads "Presents" instead of "Present".

During the cartoon, at the end of the Bugs Bunny 51st and a 1/2 anniversary spectacular scene: We see a recreation of the 1950s Merrie Melodies "That's all Folks!" script closing logo, but after "A WARNER BROS. CARTOON" appears, the logo stays for a few seconds. After that, the logo quickly shakes too fast, eventually burning up. Then, it cuts to a slide that reads "Earlier that Morning..." with a rooster crowing and the sun is behind the rooster. After that comes the old animated countdown screen.
Warner Bros. (1991)

Closing: A rather different ending plays instead of the usual "That's all Folks!" script logo, in which "That's all Folks!", in a different font (also turned counterclockwise), scrolls upward, followed by an outlined circle with an "X" in it appearing for a split-second.
Merrie Melodies (1991)
_______________________________________________________________________________________

Invasion of the Bunny Snatchers (1992): Opening: A recreation of "The Bullseye" logo with orange circles, black center and "Bugs Riding the Shield." Animation and music is similar to the 1940s Looney Tunes bumper, but the title of the logo reads "WARNER BROS. ANIMATION INC.," the text below the shield reads "Presents" instead of "Present", and the "LOONEY TUNES" title card reads below "A WARNER BROS. CARTOON MADE IN N.Y.C. AND BURBANK."
Warner Bros. Animation: 1992

Closing: We see a recreation of the 1943 Porky in the Drum logo, in which a badly animated "stereotype" version of Porky (whom, aside from also wearing pants, resembles a Terry Gilliam drawing) bursts out of the drum and tries to say his famous line in a pale voice imitation as outer-spacey sound-effects play in the background. A frowning Bugs enters from the left and kicks the fake Porky out (which crashes off screen), then grabs the real Porky and puts him in the drum where he belongs. Porky is surprised for a moment ("Oh, oops!"), then proceeds with his famous line and pose as Bugs exhaustively exits right.

At the start of the trailer, the shield is more golden and metallic and is placed on a more realistic cloud background. The text on the banner omits the word "PICTURES" and the byline is changed to "A WARNER VILLAGE EXPERIENCE". This ad can be found on various Warner Bros. and Roadshow Entertainment videos.
