Nicknames: "B/F", "The Big Feats Tightrope Walker", "The Balancing Act"

Logo: On a black background, we see two blue 3D letters (B and F stacked on top of each other) fade into view and turn to face us in a spotlight. Sandwiched in between the B and F is a red balance pole (the kind tight-rope walkers have). The B/F structure sways around and moves back and forth, eventually coming to a stop, the B/F leaning to the left, and the B swaying. "BIG FEATS! ENTERTAINMENT" is chyroned at the bottom of the screen in a yellow Art Deco font.

FX/SFX: The CGI used in the logo.

Music/Sounds: A drumroll combined with a couple of squeaking sounds, followed by a male voice saying "Whoa!" (a stock recording of Mel Blanc from Warner Bros.'s sound effects library) when the logo stops, and a 2-note trumpet sounder.

Availability: Rare. This logo initially resurfaced when repeats of Wishbone returned to PBS Kids in 2006. However, since about 2009 this logo has been plastered with the HiT Entertainment and Thirteen New York logos on TV and DVD releases. It appears on the series' VHS releases from Polygram Video, following that logo at the beginning. It also appears on the 1996 PC game Wishbone and the Amazing Odyssey.
