Music/Sounds: None or the end theme.

Availability: Near extinction. Can seen on the Wolper special Yes Virginia, There is a Santa Claus, which was available on VHS from Paramount Video, however Cartoon Network airings use the 1984 Warner Bros. Television Distribution logo instead.
2nd Logo

(September 8, 1986-September 1988)

Nickname: “Filmstrips in Space”
Logo: On a zooming space background, "WORLD WIDE DISTRIBUTION" is seen in the top left corner of the screen. In the middle of the screen, there are 2 light indigo, diagonal filmstrips that are curved over lines that are coming out of the filmstrips. On the right of them is "ABR" in Arial with "ENTERTAINMENT COMPANY" below it in a very small print.
FX/SFX: The background.
