1st Logo (1980's)[]

Producciones Video Home 1

Nicknames: "Cheesy Rainbow Text", "More Cheap Argentine Text", "Gaumont In Argentine VHS", "The Poor Zoom-In Logo"

Logo: We see a multi-colored background with numerous multicolored stripes consisting of various shades of yellow, red, pink, and purple, which was also shown at the beginning of the piracy warning screen. The words "Producciones" and "Video Home", in blue with a white outline, then appear at the top of the screen and "zoom" downwards to the bottom of the screen, the blue in the text eventually becoming green.

FX/SFX: Virtually nonexistent. The "zoom down" effect for the text is very choppy, consisting of a mere seven frames showing the logo growing bigger and moving downwards that are spaced out through approximately seven seconds.

Music/Sounds: The audio is directly taken from the fanfare that plays in the Gaumont logo used from 1971 to 1980, though it is cut off at the beginning.

Availability: Ultra rare. Appeared on an Argentine VHS of Project Kill.

2nd Logo (1980's)[]

Producciones Video Home 2

Nicknames: "The Streaked Triangle", "Cheesy Earth Attack"

Logo: On a black background, we see a 2D computer representation of the Earth, which zooms away. Two glowing dots approach the Earth and a flashy explosion occurs, which turns into various pointed stars. We then fade into a cyan background with a black small surface seen above and with a wide red triangle seen above it, with the letters V and H engraved on it, meaning "Video Home". "PRODUCCIONES" and "VIDEO HOME" then move up below the logo. The text disappears. Then the whole logo fades to the cyan serif word"PRESENTA" (PRESENTS), on a black background.

FX/SFX: Cheap computer animation.

Music/Sounds: A synthesized version of "Garden Party" by Herb Alpert.

Availability: TBA

3rd Logo (1980's-1990's)[]

Producciones Video Home 3

Nicknames: "The Streaked Triangle II", "Close Encounters of the Argentine Kind"

Logo: On a moving neon tunnel with road marks and blue and red lights, and a glow on the center of the tunnel, the yellow words "ACCION" (action), "SUSPENSO" (suspense), "COMEDIA" (comedy), "TERROR" (horror), "INFANTIL" (children's), "DRAMA" scroll up, with each word appearing pretty much after each second. The tunnel animation fades out. We fade into a blue water surface seen on a dark sky, as the logo zooms in. The logo consists of the triangle from before, but in white, and the words "PRODUCCIONES", "VIDEO" and "HOME", also in white, below the triangle. When the logo stops zooming, you can see a yellow-ish shadow behind the words "VIDEO" and "HOME".

FX/SFX: Still, this logo was also done with cheesy animation and the music is still stolen, but the concept and movement have improved a lot here.

Music/Sounds: Straight up from "Chloe" by Elton John.

Availability: TBA
