1st logo
(Late '80s-2000s)

Nickname(s): "Mickey the Graduate", "The Bill Nye Logo"

Logo: On a black background, we see Mickey Mouse wearing a graduation cap and holding a book, fade in via 'glitter' effect on the left hand side of the screen. Mickey then opens the book, and "throws" out sparkling dust that forms the white-pink text "DiSNEY" in the corporate Disney font. The words "Educational Productions" in a sans-serif typeface fade in underneath a second later as a copyright notice fades in underneath Mickey. The text shines, and Mickey blinks a couple of times before turning completely static.

Trivia: The buttons on Mickey's pants are gold, whereas they are usually white.

FX/SFX: Mickey appearing, the company name forming.

Music/Sounds: A synth, followed by a mellow theme accompanied by twinkling sound effects when Mickey throws the sparkling dust.

Music/Sounds Variant(s): Some films have their own versions of the music. However, the above music variant is by far the most common version.

Availability: Rare. Appears on VHS, Betamax and VCDs from the company, especially Bill Nye the Science Guy.
