Background: These IDs were used during the popular hit of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. At the time, ABC was the most wanted television network in America. However, ABC's heavy reliance on Millionaire (and not making any new shows) led to the channel to lose its position as the number one station in America.

ABC Premiere Event


An ABC Premiere Event (1998)

Logo: We see the ABC logo (with white letters inside a black circle) on a black background. Suddenly, A yellow circle appears, with more appearing and surrounding the logo. Then the ABC circle rapidly changes colors from black to the yellow version (with the lettering being black). Smaller circles appear and the ABC logo disappears. When the logo appears, two circles (one next to it and one under the ABC logo) appear and small dots surround the left circle. Then two dots with a yellow light appear next to the side of the logo, and like a projector cause the ABC logo to change colors again. The logo rapidly flashes front and back and the ABC logo appears to be in a small yellow background with premiere event on the bottom.

Variants: In 1999, ABC changed the name of it's Sunday movie night block. The animation is the same, except Big Picture Show is shown at the bottom instead of Premiere Event.

FX/SFX: The rapid flashing and ABC logo changing colors.

: A majestic fanfare that uses the four note ABC jingle which ends with a piano version of the jingle.

Music/Sounds Variants: For the Sunday Big Picture show, a less dramatic fanfare was used.

Availability: So far, only known to appear on movies aired on Sundays during the era.

Editor's Note: None.
