Logo descriptions by Sagan Blob

Background: Hallmark Home Entertainment was the home video division of Hallmark Entertainment, formed after Hallmark Cards bought RHI and from the ashes of Cabin Fever Entertainment. In 1998, the company began distributing their releases through Artisan Home Entertainment and Family Home Entertainment; Hallmark Home Entertainment was shut down in 2003, following Lionsgate's purchase of Artisan.

1st Logo
Hallmark Home Entertainment (1994)

Logo: Same as the 1st Hallmark Entertainment logo, with additional text "HOME" besides "ENTERTAINMENT".

FX/SFX: 2D animation, not only choppy, but all of a sudden.

Music/Sounds: None. Though sometimes there will be music.

Availability: Seen on video releases from Hallmark Home Entertainment during the era, such as the company's tapes of the 1964 Flipper TV series (which were distributed through Samuel Goldwyn Home Entertainment).

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

Logo: On a black background, a grey-silver line comes in and zooms under the screen, as the camera follows it; we then see the same silver ribbon twirling around and moving about. We then fade out as the 2nd Hallmark Entertainment logo animates, but "HOME" is added beside "ENTERTAINMENT".

Variant: A short variant simply uses the TV version with "HOME" next to "ENTERTAINMENT".

FX/SFX: The shapes and the zooming.

Music/Sounds: None, or the short fanfare from the 2nd Hallmark Entertainment logo.

Availability: Seen on video releases by Hallmark Home Entertainment from the era, including most Crayola Home Video tapes.

Editor's Note: None.
