2nd Logo

Logo: On a gradient blue and black background, we see the Fox Kids logo of the time without the black base, with "Fox Kids" in white with the word "video"

Searchlights appear and occupy the "X" in Fox, a yellow streak occupies the word "Fox", a red streak occupies the word "Kids" and a blue streak occupies the word "video". All other streaks go away and the black base finally appears to complete the Fox Kids logo.
