Logo captures by Eric S. and mr3urious


1st Logo (1989-1993)


Nickname: "The Balloon in the Sky"

Logo: On a blurry sky-blue background, a huge cloud of 12 rainbow-colored balloons floated around in mid-air. Then, a huge close-up of a red balloon that reads "Saban" in a yellow Kentucky font at the top of the balloon along with three yellow lines (resembling the "Gold Plate" logo) and a long string at the bottom that reads "Video" in red. Next, the red balloon zooms faster out and placed inside a rounded rectangle (similar to the one in the Hi-Tops Video logo).

FX/SFX: Rather simple CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized tune with chimes and violins.

Availability: Extremely rare. It can be seen on VHS releases of Saban shows released by Video Treasures, including Samurai Pizza Cats. This logo may appear on some Hi-Tops releases as well.


2nd Logo (1993-1996)

Nickname: "The Spotlights"

Logo: We first see the color gold which then zooms back to reveal a gold circle (the same one from the Saban TV logo of the time) which is seen over a Saban Home Entertainment (1993-1996) blue/black gradient night sky background with lots of stars and two spotlights (similar to King World's 1990 logo) moving back and forth. At the same time, the white marble square from the aforementioned logo zooms out. The circle then begins to fit in the box's circle space. The letters of the word "SABAN" appear one at a time on the circle via a "flashing" effect, followed by three silver lines flashing below "SABAN". The words "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" with a gold line below the words fade in below the circle.

FX/SFX: The spotlights, and the formation of the logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. This one can be found on tapes of Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers.


3rd Logo (1996)

Nickname: "The Twirly-Doo"

Logo: Same as the "Twirly-Doo" TV logo, but with the words "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" added.

FX/SFX: Same as the TV logo.

Music/Sounds: Same as the TV logo.

Availability: Very rare. This one can be found on VHS tapes of Power Rangers: Zeo and Sweet Valley High from 1996.
