2nd Logo
(December 17, 1993 - June 12, 1998)

Nicknames: TBA

: On a dark blue background, we open to something moving in the sky (akin to the Aurora Borealis that occurs in the high latitude Arctic/Antarctic regions). It slowly comes upward, the edges forming the outline of the name. The full logo appears and the background starts to brighten, showing the upper part of a mountainous woodland forest at sunrise. On the left of the logo, there is a pine tree standing on top of a cliff. The written part of the text is in white while the "ENTERTAINMENT" part is light pink.

Variant: A short version of this logo was seen on Beethoven: The Animated Series.

: The aurora light show on the sky.

: Twinkling chimes followed by a majestic synth tune and a wolf's hooting howl (probably the classic "cartoon" sound effect).

Music/Sounds Variants:
  • On Beethoven's 2nd, a piano synth tune with a choir is heard. A different (more realistic) wolf howl follows.
  • On Commandments and Beethoven: The Animated Series, it's the closing theme of the program.

Availabilty: Rare. Seen at the end of Beethoven's 2nd, Junior, The Late Shift, Private Parts, Commandments, and Six Days Seven Nights.

Editor's Note: None.
