1992-1996Edit

GW555H226
Timeoutvariant

ID: On the background of the late 1980's/early 1990's Paramount warning screen, which we see after their Feature Presentation bumper, we see a message asking viewers to stay tuned after the movie for a specific feature.

Variants:

  • Sometimes the text used of the bumper uses a different type of font, as seen in the above screenshots of the three known variants.
  • An end-of-tape version of the UB40 variant appears on Sliver after the music video for "(Can't Help) Falling in Love With You", where the text reads: ""CAN'T HELP FALLING IN LOVE" by UB40 Available on the SLIVER soundtrack album and on the UB40 album PROMISES AND LIES". Then, the bottom part fades to: "On CD and cassette from Virgin Records, at your favorite record store".
  • On the Time Out: The Truth About HIV, AIDS and You variant, the big movie text usually seen on post-trailer IDs is above the stay tuned text.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Both the before and after-feature versions of the UB40 variant can be found on the 1993 VHS of Sliver, the U.S. Chess Federation variant appears on the 1994 VHS of Searching for Bobby Fischer (it's also retained on the 1996 reprint), and the Time Out: The Truth About HIV, AIDS and You variant can be seen on the 1992 VHS releases of Cool World and Patriot Games.

Scare Factor: None.

Congostaytuned

ID: On a plain black background, we see the text "Please stay tuned for a special message after the feature presentation."

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: The only appearance of this is on the VHS of Congo.

Scare Factor: None.

February 25, 1997Edit

ID: On a yellow background resembling the front cover of a composition notebook, we see the black text "STAY TUNED...", followed by "Rugrats Rap", in the font of the Rugrats logo, zooming in on the background with a teal banner reading "Bonus Music Video" in the upper left corner. These actions are repeated a couple of seconds later, except "STAY TUNED..." is replaced with with the Harriet the Spy logo, "Rap" is replaced with "Rock" (alluding to the second bonus video, "Rugrats Rock"), and the banner reads "2nd Bonus Music Video".

FX/SFX: The zooming of the text and the appearance of the banners.

Music/Sounds: A horn-and-drum fanfare with a young female announcer saying "Stay tuned for a bonus Rugrats music video followed by Harriet the Spy! And don't touch that VCR, because there's another Rugrats music video coming up right after the movie!"

Availability: This can be seen on the VHS of Harriet the Spy.

Scare Factor: None to low.

May 11, 1999Edit

Insurrectionstaytuned

ID: On a starfield background, we see the text "STAY TUNED FOR A SPECIAL "MAKING OF" STAR TREK: INSURRECTION FEATURETTE AFTER OUR FEATURE PRESENTATION". The background starts zooming in slowly but then gets faster, indicating that the warp drive of the U.S.S. Enterprise-D is about to engage.

FX/SFX: The starfield increasing in speed.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Seen on two different pressings of the VHS of Star Trek: Insurrection (one with regular previews, one with only Star Trek previews; a third pressing just cuts to the Feature Presentation ID).

Scare Factor: None.

May 5, 2000-2004Edit

Nicknames: "Stay Tuned For Perumount", "Stay Tuned for Paramountain"

ID: On a background of the late 1990's Paramount abstract mountain in tint blue, the words "STAY TUNED FOR A SPECIAL PRESENTATION AFTER THE MOVIE" zoom out to the center of the screen, in front of the mountain, and then shine, giving off rays of light.

Variants:

  • There is an end of film variant of this bumper, which is the same background, but the words instead say "AND NOW, THE SPECIAL PRESENTATION". The same announcer says that text, too.
  • A French Canadian variant of the opening version exists. So far, this has only been seen on a French Canadian pressing of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

FX/SFX: The words zooming out and shining.

Music/Sounds: Two seconds of silence, then an announcer says the text. The announcer is most likely Michael Bell, using the voice he used when he voiced Chas Finster on the Nickelodeon animated series Rugrats (Nickelodeon is coincidentally owned by Paramount's owner, Viacom). On the French Canadian variant, none.

Availability: Pretty common. In chronological order, both variants appear on VHS copies of Rugrats: Discover America, The Talented Mr. Ripley, It's the Pied Piper, Charlie Brown, Blue's Clues: Blue's Big Musical Movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, Survivor: The Austalian Outback - Season 2: The Greatest and Most Outrageous Moments, Mission: Impossible 2, Rugrats: Kwanzaa, Crocodile Dundee in Los Angeles, Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius, ZoolanderThe Wild Thornberrys Movie, Lara Croft: Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life, Curious Buddies tapes, and G.I. Joe: Valor vs. Venom. Certain prints of Rugrats: Mysteries also have this. Surprisingly, this and the following Feature Presentation ID also appear on UK VHS tapes with special features at the end.

Scare Factor: None to low. The announcer can catch you off guard, but it's otherwise harmless for those that are used to seeing it.
