Logo: Just a black background with a copyright notice on the bottom, similar to the copyright disclaimer seen in the end of the credits on most Disney TV shows.

  • 1986-2002 : © (Year) The Walt Disney Company
  • 1986-1989 :© (Year) THE WALT DISNEY CO.
  • The font may vary.
  • There's a variant that copyrights Buena Vista Pictures instead of Disney.
  • On Walt Disney Cartoon Classics releases, It is set on a blue background with the Cartoon Classics logo on the top.
  • One variant has the copyright in a completely different light blue font that almost looks like it was chyroned in last-minute. This is seen in the first DuckTales VHS tapes.
  • On the VHS tape Mickey Knows Best, the Copyright fades in of a static photo of Sorcerer Mickey Mouse and one of the Mickey Mouse end cards.
  • On the VHS Tape The Importance of Being Donald, the copyright fades in a photo with a TV (with footage of a Hollywood sign spoof with white Donald Duck text replacing Hollywood) and a static Donald Duck.
FX/SFX: Just the fading of the Copyright Notice. The Cartoon Classics variant is just the logo's animation. The Importance of Being Donald is the camera in the TV zooming into the Donald Duck sign.

Music/Sounds: Silent, but on some releases (such as Volume 4 and 5 of The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh and Max Fleisher's Cartoon Capers), the twinkling sound from the Walt Disney Television "Rainbow Castle" logo (usually due to this replacing said logo) is used.The Cartoon Classics variant originally used the end of the Cartoon Classics theme, but was later silent.

Availability: It's fairly hard to come by as most VHS releases lack it. The 1985 version only appears on the Walt Disney Home Video Golden Collection II series after the Neon Mickey logo. The version with the copyright date on top of the Disney text appears on some 1986 cartoon VHS's like A Tale of Two Chipmunks. Some 1990 Disney Halloween videos also have this as well at the very end. Your easiest bet to find this is on VHS releases of DuckTales, The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, Chip 'n' Dale Rescue Rangers and TaleSpin, as it plasters over the Walt Disney Television logo.The Buena Vista variant is only known to appear on the Max Fleischer's Cartoon Capers VHS Tapes. The Cartoon Classics variant appeared at the end of VHS's released under the label (except for the 1990 Halloween tapes, which instead use the normal copyright). Some Japanese dubs of Disney Animated movies also have this after the movie.

Scare Factor: Depending on the variant.
  • Normal Variant: Minimal to low. The silence and black background can be startling but it's mostly harmless. It also depends on what font is used for the copyright notice.
  • With the Rainbow Castle music: Medium,as the twinkling sound may startle you.
  • Cartoon Classics Variant: None.
