Action Pack "Two Rings" (1994-1997)<embed height="197" src="" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="239"/>

Nicknames: "Universal Presents", "Two Rings"

Logo: We see the Universal logo, with "Presents" fading in under "UNIVERSAL" after the logo is formed. The screen then fades to black to the Action Pack logo. In the Action Pack logo, we see two rings, one in purple and one in yellow, overlapping together. The words "ACTION PACK" appear each letter from the left. Then two blue crescents turn and overlap the logo. Once these overlap, the crescents spin, and shooting stars shoot through the logo.

Variant: On TV movies, the Universal logo is not used, making the Action Pack logo longer, with the logo ending with the words leaving up and down.

FX: The animation in the logo.

Music/Sounds: A 12-note trumpet, which has a drumroll starting at the 7th note, then a rock tune is played with 3 loops, sounding similar to The Who's "Tommy Overture", and a drumroll is heard in the 3rd loop to the end.

Availability: Seen on the beginning of old prints of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and Xena: Warrior Princess from the era.

Scare Factor: Low.
