Background

Normally on VHS or DVD releases, Nickelodeon will typically replace their normal TV logo with a still screenshot of one of their ID's used at the time. This page features logos exclusively seen on these releases, as well as ones exclusively seen on home media or have also been used as a Nickelodeon Productions logo. These logos used to be on the Nickelodeon Productions page before being taken out as they make the page too long of a list, making it buffer.

1st Logo (August 31, 1993)

Nicknames: "Nickelodeon Splat", "The Other Splat", "Weird Splat"

Logo: Over a black background, we see a weird-looking 2D Nickelodeon splat logo, which looks like it's been jabbed by a bone several times. Copyright information is below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. Only seen on the original Sony Wonder releases of Rugrats Volume 1: Tales from the Crib, Rugrats Volume 2: A Baby's Gotta Do What A Baby's Gotta Do, Doug Volume 1: How Did I Get into This Mess and Doug Volume 2: Patti, You're the Mayonnaise For Me. The 1996 re-releases of the Rugrats tapes (from Paramount) plaster this logo with the "Slime" and the Doug tapes were never re-released.

Editor's Note: For some reason, the Doug tapes didn’t mention the show name, only mentioning the VHS subtitles.

2nd Logo (1993-1995?, 2000-2009)

Nicknames: "The Haystack", "The Haypile", "The Nick Haystack", "The Nick Scribble"

Logo: Same as the NAS "Haypile" logo, but with an expanded copyright that says "(C)(year) Viacom International Inc. All rights reserved. Nickelodeon, (NAME OF SHOW), and all related titles, logos, and characters are trademarks of Viacom International Inc."

Early Variant: Sony Wonder releases from the Early 90s normally contained a copyright with the release's name on it.

Variants: Strangely, a variant exists without copyright info at all on the VHS version of Oswald On The Go (2004). This may be because the HiT Entertainment logo that preceded it (and 3 Nick Jr. logos/bumpers) already had copyright info, so it would be meaningless to have it appear twice. Although the DVD release does contain copyright info.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None or the end theme of the show.

Music/Sounds Variants: On both the Volume 1 & Volume 2 DVDs of The Amanda Show, the audio from the Nickelodeon Productions Lightbulb is used.

Availability: Very Common.

  • It originally appears at the end on a few Sony Wonder releases.
  • By 2000, it had appeared at the end on pretty much all Nickelodeon VHS's and DVDs from 2000 until 2009 (with the exception of a few Nick Jr. tapes from that time, which used the Bone before switching to this one). Examples include Season 1 of The Adventures of Pete & Pete and all SpongeBob SquarePants DVDs from 2003 to 2009, along with several Nick Jr. shows. This logo also appears on DVD releases of Avatar: The Last Airbender. The 2009 DVD of True Jackson, VP: Season 1, Volume 1 is one of the last releases to use the logo.

Editor's Note: Same as the NAS version.

3rd Logo (April 12, 1994)

Nicknames: "Nickelodeon Scribble", "Nickelodeon Firework"

Logo: Over a black background, we see an orange scribble (that also looks somewhat like a firework explosion) with the Nickelodeon text inside it. Copyright information is below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Extremely rare. It is only known to appear on the Sony Wonder release of Rugrats: Angelica the Divine. Like with the "Weird Splat", the Paramount version of the tape plasters this logo with the "Slime".

Editor's Note: None.

4th Logo (August 23, 1994)

Nicknames: "Nickelodeon Bat"

Logo: On a black background, we see an orange 2D bat with the Nickelodeon text on the front. Copyright info is underneath.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare. It's only seen on Nickelodeon Fright-fest, from Sony Wonder. Also used as a network ID.

Editor's Note: None.

5th Logo (August 30, 1994)

Nickname: "Nickelodeon Holly"

Logo: On a black background, a holly-shaped 2D Nickelodeon logo is seen, with the text on the top leaf. Copyright info is underneath.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show.

Availability: Extremely rare. It's only seen on the original Sony Wonder prints of Doug's Christmas Story. The Paramount reissue replaces this logo with the 3D Nick Lightbulb.

Editor's Note: None.

6th Logo (April 7, 1996-2000)

Nickname: "Nickelodeon Flower

Logo: On a black background, a flower-shaped 3D Nickelodeon logo is seen. Copyright info is below.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of the show, or none. Rugrats: Mommy Mania has a quote from one of the preceding episodes on the tape (Tommy: "Bye, Chuckie--I mean, Blaine.")

Availability: Uncommon. The still version appears on the respective VHS tapes: Blue's Clues: Blue's Safari, CatDog: Together Forever, Wide Awake at Eureeka's Castle (Paramount re-release), Rugrats: Mommy Mania and four Little Bear videos: Rainy Day Tales, Goodnight Little Bear, Family Tales, and Friends. The animated version was seen on the Australian Snout! shorts (there are only three, so they're hard to find), but all three can be found on Vimeo. This logo was also used as a station ID.

Editor's Note: None.

7th Logo (October 1, 1996-January 11, 2002)

Nicknames: "Nickelodeon Slime", "The Wiggling Slime", "Slimelodeon"

Logo: On a black background, an orange slime 3D Nickelodeon logo (which looks more like a cloud) is seen. Copyright info is seen below or sometimes not at all.

Trivia: On the YouTube channel Smosh Games, an Honest Trailer (which is a parody) for Splatoon featured this logo, mentioned as an inspiration for the game.

Variants:

  • There's an animated variant in which the slime is shown spinning while zooming up to the front of the screen.
  • Another animated variant has the logo suddenly jerk a bit.

FX/SFX: None except for the slime zooming/spinning on the animated variants.

Music/Sounds: None, 3xcept for the 2nd variant, which has a suction cup sound.

Availability: This is the most common out of all the Home Media endcaps to find on VHS, especially compared to some of the other black-background logos on this page.

  • It's seen on a grand total of 10 Rugrats VHS tapes (from Paramount): The Santa Experience, Return of Reptar, Tales from the Crib, Angelica the Divine, Bedtime Bash, Diapered Duo, Chuckie the Brave, A Baby's Gotta Do What a Baby's Gotta Do, and A Rugrats Passover, which plaster the NAS "Haypile", "Firework" or "Weird Splat" from the Sony Wonder releases. Also showed up on two Allegra's Window VHS tapes: Small is Beautiful and Waiting for Grandma. It also appeared on VHS releases of Ren and Stimpy: Clarissa Explains it All.
  • It is also shown without the copyright stamp, on a preview for Rugrats videos, which can be found on the VHS release of The Rugrats Movie and five Blue's Clues VHS tapes: Blue's Discoveries, Magenta Comes Over, Stop, Look and Listen, Blue's Big Pajama Party, and Blue's Safari, as well as most Nickelodeon tapes from 1997 to 2000.
  • The animated variant can be found during a Rugrats VHS promo on several Rugrats video releases from the late '90s.
  • The animated version was also seen on the American/Australian VHS Ren and Stimpy: Incredibly Stupid Stories with the copyright stamp intact.
  • Also used as a station ID and on a "Nick Takes Over Your School Sweepstakes" commercial.

Editor's Note: Admittedly, it does look rather uncanny compared to others with its rather shiny and realistic appearance. The movements of the slime also look kind of creepy.

8th Logo (March 11, 1997-April 7, 1998)
