TOP TAPE - Vinheta VHS Anos 90

Logo: On a black background with lines (shooting stars) moving slowly, we see the red words easing in:

TOP TAPE

CINE-VIDEO-TV-DISCO

A hexagon appears zooming inside.

FX/SFX: The words and the hexagon.

Cheesy Factor: Poorly filmed with cheap animation throughout.

Music/Sounds: A loud synth drone with a 2-note fanfare.

Availability: Seen on VHS tapes from this company from the 1980s.

Scare Factor: Medium. The music will still get to some, but the animation is much better.

3rd logo (2000s)

Vinhetas_TOP_TAPE

Vinhetas TOP TAPE

Logo: It starts out with a blue flash. We then see the logo sliding across the screen while more shines appear. After this, two blue lines form on top and bottom, and the text of the logo zooms out and stops in the middle. The shines disappear, before the logo fades out.

FX/SFX: The logo sliding, the flashes, the lines forming, and the text zooming out.

Cheesy Factor: None.

Music/Sounds: TBA

Availability: Seen on VHS tapes and DVDs distributed by the company, such as Jesus of Nazareth and Jonah: A VeggieTales Movie.

Scare Factor: The music can turn some people off, and the sudden zoom out can catch some off guard.

4th logo (2001-present; DVDs)

VINHETA_TOP_TAPE_DVD_2001

VINHETA TOP TAPE DVD 2001

Logo: It starts out with a DVD player on a TV. The tray then closes as the screen pans up to the TV. Afterwards, the Top Tape DVD logo forms on its screen. As the tray closes, a DVD can be seen.

FX/SFX: The tray closing, screen panning, and logo appearing as a zap-like noise is heard.

Cheesy Factor: None.

Music/Sounds: Just a little bombastic sting as the logo appears.

Availability: Seen on DVDs distributed by this company as of 2001, like The Who and Divas Live 99.

Scare Factor: The stinger can surprise some viewers who don't expect to hear it.
