Abbey Home Media

1st Logo (2001-)

Abbey Home Media (2002-)

Logo: We see the purple words: "Abbey" and "Home Media" underneath, both in generic sans-serif font.

Variant: The logo originally appeared with a different font ("Abbey" looks more bold and "Home Media" is narrower) and off-center.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Music/Sounds Variant: On a CBeebies DVD, the sound from the later variant of the Abbey Home Media DVD logo was used.

Availability: Debuted on early VHS releases, and later appeared on some DVDs in later years.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo (2014-)

Abbey Home Media (2014-) Logo

Nicknames: "The Cascading Text"

Logo: On a white background, we see some white, blue, purple and cyan wavy columns going upwards, forming "Abbey", like in Pompéia Fashion Weekend promos, as white and grey metallic ribbons fly by when the white columns finished going up. The word "Abbey" turns blue and "Home Media" fades in.

FX/SFX: Nice CGI animation with MAXON CINEMA 4D and Adobe After Effects.

Music/Sounds: A low majestic fanfare, and when the logo is formed, there is a high fanfare at the end, not fitting the logo well.

Availability: Seen on current Abbey Home Media DVDs.

Editor's Note: None.

Abbey Home Media DVD

(2001-201?)

DVD Abbey Home Media 2005 Logo

Logo: On a white background, we see the drawn words: "Abbey Home Media" underneath the light blue oval with two six-point stars, red and yellow circular ends and "DVD" in it.

Later Variant: On current DVDs, the words "Abbey Home Media" draws itself as a magic comet flies by, revealing the DVD logo.

FX/SFX: On the normal logo, none. On the later variant, the writing and the comet flying.

Music/Sounds: None, but the later variant has a magical sparkle sound.

Availability: Seen on many Abbey Home Media, Tempo and Tempo Pre-School DVDs. Abbey Home Media no longer uses this logo, and now just use their regular logo.
