1st Warning

(1987-1990)

Warning: Same as the 1977-1984 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment warning.

Trivia: This warning is shown in the Video Pirates segment of the 1987 Universal anthology comedy Amazon Women on the Moon. In the segment, a group of pirates who like to illegally bootleg VHS tapes (the leader is played by William Marshall) find a treasure trove of VHS tapes and laserdiscs. One of them puts one into a VCR, and it displays this warning. He then sarcastically says "Ooooh, I'm so scared!", and he and his crew break into laughter.

Variants:

  • Starting in 1989, the drop shadow was removed.
  • On even-numbered tapes, it uses the 1984-1999 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment warning.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on most, if not all Hanna-Barbera Productions tapes, such as The Jetsons First Episodes.

Scare Factor: None.

2nd Warning
(1990-1993)

Warning: On a blue background, we see the words "FBI WARNING" in red and below is white text.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: Strangely, the words "video" is seen instead of "video tapes" or "video discs".

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on most, if not all Hanna-Barbera Home Video tapes, such as The Jetsons: Elroy's Mob and Potsworth and the Midnight Patrol.

Scare Factor: None. It's not ugly when compared to the next warning.

3rd Warning
(1990-1993)

Nicknames: "White FBI", "Odd FBI", "Freaky FBI"

Warning: On a white background, there is a black rectangle with a weird-looking FBI seal and the text "FBI" above it in an ugly font. On the right of it is the text in black.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: This warning would've been better if it had a proper FBI logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on even-numbered Hanna-Barbra Home Video tapes such as the 1991 VHS of Dastardly & Muttley.

Scare Factor: Minimal. Some might be freaked out by the weird looking FBI logo, but it's otherwise harmless.
