1st Warning (1989-1994)

Warning: On a red background, we see the white Warning text scrolling up. It looks almost the same as the 1981-1990, 1991, 1992 MGM/UA Home Video warning.

FX/SFX: The scrolling of the text.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on PBS Home Video releases distributed by Pacific Arts.

Scare Factor: Low.

2nd Warning (1994-1997)

Warning: On a white background, we see a black square with the FBI logo. On the right of it is the text in black. It looks the same as the 1990-1993 Hanna-Barbera Home Video warning.

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: The FBI logo looks off-model.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on PBS Home Video releases distributed by Turner Home Entertainment.

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

3rd Warning (1997-2004)

Warning: On a black background, we see a black square on the left with the standard FBI logo in white, and the generic text in a white box on the right with the red word "WARNING" on the top. It looks the same as the 1981-2004 Warner Home Video warning.

FX/SFX: None.

Availability: Seen on PBS Home Video releases distributed by Warner Home Video.

Scare Factor: Like most warnings in this format, low to medium.

4th Warning (1997-2011)

Warning: On a black background, we see a red square with the white FBI letters in a somewhat thin font and the blue FBI logo below the letters at the top left. On the right and bottom of the logo we see the generic warning text in white.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Used for PBS DVD releases. Also seen on early HBO DVDs.

Scare Factor: Low to medium, like most FBI warnings of this kind. The thin font for "FBI" is an eyesore to look at.

5th Warning (2004-2011)

Scare Factor: None.

6th Warning (2004-2011) (Alternate)
