1980'sEdit

Bumper: On a light blue-blue gradient background, we see a clapboard with the blue-light blue gradient words "CHECK YOUR LOCAL VIDEO STORE FOR DETAILS" in it, which later fade into the CBS/FOX logo (without the word "VIDEO") and then the words "FEATURE PRESENTATION" in the same style. Then the clapboard claps and we fade out.

Variants:

  • There is a short version in which "CHECK YOUR LOCAL VIDEO STORE FOR DETAILS" is missing. This version can be found on some of the CBS/Fox Video, Key Video and Playhouse Video tapes that have this bumper.
  • Playhouse Video tapes have a yellow-light blue gradient background and have the Playhouse Video logo replacing the CBS/Fox Video Logo, and the announcer says "Check your local video store for details. And now, our feature presentation". The middle of the clapboard is light blue, and the words "CHECK YOUR LOCAL VIDEO STORE FOR DETAILS" and "FEATURE PRESENTATION" are in white. A black and white version of that version exists.
  • On Key Video tapes, a pink-blue gradient background is used, and the Key Video logo replaces the CBS/FOX Video logo, and the same announcer is used. Some releases, such as History of the World Part I, skip the Check Your Local Video Store For Details part and just show the Feature Presentation text. On later 1989 Key Video tapes such as The Charlie Chan Collection and The Betty Grable Collection tapes, the words "FEATURE PRESENTATION WILL FOLLOW" are seen instead and there is no announcer. Both versions are not italicized. A black and white version exists.
  • A special variant of this bumper appears on Predator where the words just write "Feature Presentation" in a cursive font and then the clapboard claps. The gray clapboard is replaced with a light blue clapboard and yet another different blue gradient background is used.

FX/SFX: The shining and the clapping.

Music/Sounds: An announcer heard on most CBS/Fox promos from the mid-1980's to the early 1990's, Bill St. James, says "Check your local video store for details. And now, for our feature presentation.", followed by a clap. On the short versions of the CBS/Fox and Key Video versions, the announcer just said "And now, for our feature presentation." On the short version of the Playhouse Video version, the announcer just said "And now, our feature presentation."

Availability: Rare. It was seen on certain CBS/Fox Video, Key Video and Playhouse Video releases from the 1980's such as the original 1988 VHS releases of A Night in the Life of Jimmy Reardon, Overboard, and Oklahoma!, among others. The short version of the CBS/Fox version can be seen on the original 1989 VHS of A Fish Called Wanda, while the short version of the Playhouse Video version can be seen on the 1987 Playhouse Video rerelease of Fairy Tale Theater: Cinderella.

Scare Factor: Minimal.

Music/Sounds/Voiceover: An announcer heard in most mid-1980s to early-1990s CBS/Fox promos says "And now, for our feature presentation." The announcer is Bill St. James.

Variants:

  • Sometimes, the announcer uses a slightly different tone. There are a total of 4 tones which the announcer says it. A few tones use the same as the previous bumper like the VHS of The Abyss.

  • On the 1991 VHS of The Adventures of Ford Fauntley, a purple gradient background is used.

Availability: Seen on most CBS/Fox Video releases from the late 1980s and early 1990s.

The last tapes that used the original version of this bumper were the 1992 VHS tapes of A Garfield Christmas, Star Wars (1992 rerelease), Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1992 rerelease), Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1992 rerelease), and From Star Wars to Jedi (1992 rerelease).
