Logo: Against a zooming starfield, four beige squares arranged in a box shape, each with the Video Late Show logo on it, fly in from the left and rotate a bit. They disappear off the right, and afterward, one square flips in to cover the whole screen. It consists of a box with "VIDEO" above it in black on white and "LATE•SHOW" below in white on black, which a sleeping yellow crescent moon with a star to the right. "The" in cursive is shown near the top left. The byline "DISTRIBUTED BY INTERNATIONAL VIDEO ENTERTAINMENT, INC., AN NCB ENTERTAINMENT GROUP COMPANY" is shown below.
FX/SFX: The starfield, the rotating box. Much like its cousins, the FHE "Chalkboard" and IVE "Grid", it looks like it may have been done on an Apple II computer.
Music/Sounds: A nostalgic 1920s-esque ragtime tune performed on a synthesizer.
