United States of America/Canada Versions

1989

Nickname: "STAY TOONED!"

Bumper: On a grey background, similar to that of the 1989 Feature Presentation bumper, we see the gold-red gradient words "STAY" and "TOONED" in a Marker Bold font coming from opposite ends of the screen - the "STAY" from the top, and the "TOONED" from the bottom. They join, where a flash forms behind them, and spawns a shadow.

Trivia: Uniquely among Stay Tuned bumpers, this one advises the viewer to stay tuned for a preview BEFORE the film, instead of after - the home video trailer for Who Framed Roger Rabbit would play after the bumper finished.

FX/SFX: The two words flying and joining together, the flash, and the appearing shadow of the words.

Music/Sounds: The first eight notes of "Great Ovation", with Brian Cummings saying "Stay tooned for the most fun ever on home video!".

Availability: Rare. Seen on 1989 VHS prints of Cocktail, Heartbreak Hotel, Beaches, Three FugitivesDisorganized Crime and Ernest Saves Christmas.

Scare Factor: None, although the scare factor can be raised for those who weren't expecting it.

January 1992

Stay Tuned for More Great Scenes from The Very Best of The Ed Sullivan Show After our Feature
Stay Tuned For More Great Scenes from The Very Best of The Ed Sullivan Show bumper00:05

Stay Tuned For More Great Scenes from The Very Best of The Ed Sullivan Show bumper

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words...

Stay Tuned
For More Great Scenes From
The Very Best Of
The Ed Sullivan Show
After Our Feature

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after our feature". Like the 1992 "Special PREVIEW After the Feature" bumper, this voice-over was part of his voiceover from a rare UK Stay Tuned bumper.

Availability: Rare, as it only appeared on the demo VHS of Frankenweenie.

Scare Factor: None to minimal.

1992 (A)

Bumper: Same as the "FEATURE PRESENTATION" bumper, except it reads "Special Previews" with "After our feature from Walt Disney Home Video" below (with the latter in a smaller text).

FX/SFX: None.

Variant: On select prints of Beauty and the Beast, there is no "S" after "Preview" (this leaves the main title as "Special Preview") and Mark Elliot announces "Be sure to stay tuned after our feature, for a look at another special preview from Walt Disney Home Video."

Music/Sounds: Same as the "Coming Only to Theatres this 1992 Holiday Season" bumper, with the exception of Mark Elliot announcing "Be sure to stay tuned after our feature, for a look at more special previews from Walt Disney Home Video."

Availability: Rare. Seen on the 1992 VHS print of Beauty and the Beast.

Scare Factor: Low. The somewhat spooky cursive font used in the text, as well as the music can startle some.

1992 (B)

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words "Special PREVIEW" with "After the Feature from Walt Disney Home Video" below (with "PREVIEW" in a larger font and "After the Feature from Walt Disney Home Video" in smaller text).

Variant: On the 1st print of Father of the Bride (which is one of the first tapes to use the black-blue bumpers), we see the words "Special PREVIEWS" with "After the Movie from Buena Vista Home Video" below with a different announcer, Grant Goodeve, saying "Be sure to stay tuned after our feature, for a special look at something new and different from Buena Vista Home Video."

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Same music as the previous bumper, while Brian Cummings announces "Stay tuned after our feature." The voice-over is actually a part of his voiceover of a rare UK Stay Tuned Bumper, which would have been more suitable for use on this bumper.

Availability: Rare. Seen on the 1992 prints of Father of the Bride and So Dear to My Heart.

Scare Factor: Low. The dark background and music may surprise some.

1992 (C)

Bumper: On a black background, we see the words "Stay Tuned For Other Exciting Previews".

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Silent, except Brian Cummings announces "Stay tuned for other exciting previews following our feature presentation."

Availability: Extremely rare. It only appears on the demo tapes of Father of the Bride and Truly, Madly Deeply (the regular release versions use the previous ID).

Scare Factor: Medium to High. Some people can be surprised by the announcer and the dark background.

1992-1995

Bumper: Same as the 3rd bumper, except it reads "After our feature" with "MORE GREAT PREVIEWS" below.

Variants:

  • On tapes from 1992 and 1993 like Super Mario Bros. and The Mighty Ducks, the normal 1991 Gold Walt Disney Home Video music is played & the screen says "A SPECIAL MESSAGE" & below it says "after our feature".
  • On the 1992 VHS of Newsies, the text just reads "A SPECIAL MESSAGE". This version also has no voiceover.
  • On the 1993 VHS of Honey, I Blew Up the Kid, the text reads "STAY TUNED" & below it, "after our feature...", The announcer says "Stay tuned after our feature, for a special music video."
  • In some cases, the first variant is used and has the 1991 Walt Disney Home Video music, with the announcer saying "After our feature, stay tuned for more great previews".

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: On the Honey, I Blew Up the Kid variant, what's with the "..." at the end of "feature"?

Music/Sounds: The music for the Jim Henson Video logo plays and an announcer says "Stay tuned after our feature, for more great previews." The announcer is Brian Cummings. The "A SPECIAL MESSAGE after the feature" has the same announcer, say "Stay tuned after our feature, for a special message".

Availability: Seen on (non-Classics/Masterpiece) Disney, Touchstone and Hollywood Pictures video releases from 1993 to 1995.

Scare Factor: Same as the FEATURE PRESENTATION bumper of the time. The dark background, somewhat spooky text, and animation of the words may get to a few, but it is otherwise harmless. But the next bumper is a different story...

1994-1999

Bumper: The blue text "STAY TUNED AFTER THE FEATURE" zooms out on a black background; and then a white flash occurs. After the flash dies down, the background changes to blue and the text becomes white. The text fades out moments later and the 1994-2001 "FEATURE PRESENTATION" text in white fades in.

The Crow Variants:

  • On the 1994 VHS and the 1997 widescreen VHS of The Crow, there is no text zooming out. Instead, the film's crow symbol zooms out on a dark green background, and when the screen flashes, the background turns to a pale dark blue and the text appears saying "AFTER THE FEATURE" on the top and "LAST ON-CAMERA INTERVIEW WITH BRANDON LEE" at the bottom. The entire bumper fades out and the standard 1994-1999 "FEATURE PRESENTATION" logo with the white text and blue background fades in.
  • The 1996 VHS of The Crow: City Of Angels features a similar variant to The Crow variant with some notable changes. The dark green background is now also a pale dark blue. The text (which is now in a different font) reads at the bottom "A SPECIAL BRANDON LEE TRIBUTE", and after the bumper fades out the "NOW AVAILABLE ON CD & CASSETTE" (with white text on a blue background) fades in rather than the 1994-1999 "FEATURE PRESENTATION" bumper.

FX/SFX: The zoom in, and the white flash.

Music/Sounds: An extended version of the 1994 FEATURE PRESENTATION music (a whooshing sound followed by an orchestral hit and a quiet note), with synth notes added to the entire duration of the quiet note, which in turn is followed by Brian Cummings saying "Stay tuned after the feature for more great previews. And now, our feature presentation".

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On The Crow, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for the last on-camera interview with Brandon Lee, which includes never-before-seen footage. And now, our feature presentation."
  • On The Crow: City Of Angels, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for a special Brandon Lee tribute, which includes never-before-seen footage. And now, see what's available on CD and cassette."
  • On the 1996 VHS of The Rock, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for a very special message. And now, our feature presentation."
  • On the 1997 VHS of Scream,​ Brain Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for a special message. And now, our feature presentation."
  • On the 1995 VHS releases of Tall Tale and Camilla, Brian Cummings says "Stay tuned after the feature for another great preview. And now, our feature presentation."

Availability: Seen on some Disney and associated releases from 1994 to 1999, including the Disney's Sing-Along Songs tapes of the period.

Scare Factor: Depending on the variant:

  • For the normal variant, same as the FEATURE PRESENTATION bumper of the time. The flash combined with the somewhat scary music (which is made even creepier with the added synth notes) may scare over a few. But none to minimal (or maybe low) if you are used to it.
  • For both The Crow and The Crow: City of Angels variants, Nightmare. The scary-looking crow on a dark background can be rather jarring for unsuspecting viewers (especially those expecting the original variant of this bumper and winding up with this), and the fact that it uses the same animation and music from the original variant doesn't even help matters.

​1996

Bumper​: Just a black background with the words "After The Feature Stay Tuned Never Before Seen Footage".

FX:​ None, just the words "Stay Tuned" writing itself.

Music/Sounds​: Just Beau Weaver saying "Stay tuned for never before seen footage and interviews from the set of From Dusk Till Dawn."

Availability​: Only seen on the 1996 VHS of From Dusk Till Dawn.

​Scare Factor</u>​: Low. The black background and the sudden announcement might get to you.

Early 2000s

Bumper: Depends on the variants...

Zoom-Out: Similar to the previous bumper, but barely reminiscent of those type of bumpers. It is in the same font, but "PREVIEWS" is zooming out without any flash.

Filmreel: "Previews" comes down from above the screen in the same manner as the 8th bumper, except that's the only text on the screen. This variant is more similar to the bumpers it is based off of. There is another variant of this bumper where the background of the logo is still and "Previews" moves from the left of the screen above the gold bar.

Music/Sounds: Brian Cummings, says "Join us, for the following previews!". The Zoom-out bumper based off of the 1994 "FEATURE PRESENTATION" Bumper has the 8 notes from "Great Ovation", and the Filmreel variant has the standard music played on Filmreel bumpers.

Trivia: Much like the first bumper, this asks viewers to stay tuned before a film.

Availability: Ultra rare, as this was only seen on Buena Vista Home Entertainment demo tapes from the early 2000s. The zoom-out version only appeared on Dimension Home Video demo tapes.

Scare Factor: Low. Both variants' voiceovers and music may surprise some, but none for those who expected or are used to it.

1993-2006

Bumper: We fade into a footage of a still or animating scene of a Disney movie or a music video. As it starts playing, one of the two texts ("Join Us After The Feature" or "Stay Tuned After The Feature") fades in at the bottom of the screen, or occasionally, a variety of different texts could fade in ("After The Movie", "After The Program", "Please Stay Tuned", "Join Us After The Movie", "Premiering After The Movie", "Coming Up After The Movie", "Join Us After The Program" or "Join Us After The Show").

Variant: On the 1998 VHS of The Little Mermaid, this ID is not shown. Instead, after we see a special Feature Presentation ID only seen on said VHS, before fading away to the home video variant of the THX "Broadway" logo, Jodi Benson (as part of the filler at the start of the VHS where she converses with her CGI pet goldfish, Gil and Phil) reminds the audience "And don't forget to stay tuned after the movie for the music video, "Part of Your World"!".

Early Variants: There exist some early variants from 1992-1999. They can be found on Winnie The Pooh: Playtime and Learning Collection, Ariel's Undersea Adventures, Father of the Bride (Version #1), Winnie The Pooh and Christmas TooDisney's Sing Along Songs: Disney's The Twelve Days of ChristmasThe Brave Little Toaster, The Brave Little Toaster: Goes to Mars, Goof Troop, Darkwing Duck, 'Winnie The Pooh: Sing a Song with Pooh Bear, Doug's 1st Movie, Fraggle Rock (Volumes 1-5), Mulan (Version #1), Disney's Sing Along Songs: Aladdin: Friend Like Me and Disney's Sing Along Songs: Snow White: Heigh-Ho.

FX/SFX: None for the 1992-1999 and 1997-1999 variants, but the 1999-2006, and Gargoyles variants are animated.

Music/Sounds/Voice-over Variants: The music playing in the background is either a 25-note string theme, parts of the movie's soundtrack, generic music relating to the movie or music from a following featurette or a music video or the end credits theme. Beau Weaver, Brian Cummings, Tom Kane, Mark Elliot, Jim Cummings, Grant Goodeve or a female announcer says the following:

Also seen on various Gold Classic Collection tapes and other releases from 1999 to 2006. DVDs of these releases (usually) put the special feature with the rest of the special features on the DVD.

Scare Factor: None, much tamer than before. Medium to high for the Toy Story 2 variant. The font of the text and dark background can creep you out. Low to high for ​The Waterboy ​variant. The look on Adam Sandler's face will give you to creeps.

2000-2005

Bumper: On a blurry background of two film reels and some colored squares, the words "Join Us" zoom down from the top of the screen to the bottom of a blue square near the top of the screen, while the words "AFTER THE PROGRAM" slides in from the left of the screen to the right of a yellow square near the center of the screen, while a bunch of golden arrows move around in different directions.

Variants:

  • On the 2004 VHS of Kill Bill: Volume 1, only the words "AFTER THE FEATURE" appear on where the "AFTER THE PROGRAM" text would normally appear. The animation of the logo seems to be slowed down as well. The announcer for this variant is Tom Kane.
  • On the 2000 VHS print of Tarzan and the 2001 VHS releases Santa Who?, U.S. prints of Recess Christmas: Miracle on Third Street, The Book of Pooh: Stories from the Heart, and Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed In At the House Of Mouse, the top portion has the words "More Excitement" slide in, while the words "From Disney" side in on the golden bar. Beau Weaver then says "And there's more excitement coming your way from Disney!"
  • There is an extremely rare variant that is seen on the 2000 VHS of Diamonds. The colored squares and golden arrows are removed from the filmreel background, and instead of the usual text, we see "Join Us After the Feature for a Special Message", in gold, displayed on the screen. No music is heard. Tom Kane says "Join us after the feature for a special message from Kirk Douglas." in this variant.
  • On VHS prints of the 2001 reprint of Chocolat, The Country Bears, Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, the 2004 VHS of Mulan and the 2005 Platinum Edition VHS of Cinderella, "MOVIE" takes "PROGRAM"'s spot. Also, the font for "AFTER THE MOVIE" is in a regular sans-serif font (this is actually the same font for "TO OWN ON DVD" in the original 2002 Now Available To Own On DVD bumper).

FX/SFX: All of the animation. 

Cheesy Factor: The white "After the Feature" text on the "After The Feature" variant is quite hard to make out on the bright gold square it appears on. Also, why isn't it animated in a similar fashion to the original bumper? The finished product overall seems like a rushed job.

Music/Sounds: Just the usual soft electronic theme used by Disney during the 1999-2006 era, with Brian Cummings saying "Join us after the program for a special message from Disney".

Music/Sounds Variants:

  • On the 2001 reprint of Chocolat, The Country Bears, Mulan (2004 VHS), Cinderella (the 2005 VHS) and Air Bud: Seventh Inning Fetch, Brian Cummings says "Be sure to join us after the movie for a special program".
  • On the 2000 VHS tape of Diamonds, the bumper is silent except for Tom Kane saying "Join us after the feature for a special message from Kirk Douglas".
  • On the demo VHS of Inspector Gadget, a different voiceover is heard.

Music/Sounds Variant: On the "After the Feature" variant, Tom Kane says "Watch the trailers from writer/director Quentin Tarantino, coming up right after the feature". Instead of the standard flat music, a song from the film's soundtrack, "Battle Without Honor or Humanity" by Tomoyasu Hotei, is used in it's place.

Availability: Uncommon; seen on the VHS releases of Dinosaur and The Country Bears as well as some other VHS releases from the period. The "After the Feature" variant is extremely rare; it was seen only on the 2004 VHS release of Kill Bill: Volume 1. The last tape to use this bumper is the 2005 Platinum Edition VHS release of Cinderella.

Scare Factor: None for the original bumper. Low to Medium for the "After The Feature" variant, the loud music may get to those unfamiliar of it, especially if they were expecting the standard music instead.

2003-2006 (Buena Vista/Miramax)

Bumper: On a green background with moving sound wave bars in white, the text "Join Us After The Program" moves all over the screen, separately, until it centers itself in the middle of the screen, zooming in. The text shines. After a few seconds, the text zooms out and in, and the images ripple.

FX/SFX: The sound wave bars moving, the text popping up on the screen.

Music/Sounds: A techno hip-hop tune, with Brian Cummings saying "Be sure to join us after the feature for more fun and excitement!"

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on the demo VHS of Pokémon Heroes, the regular VHS of Pokémon: Jirachi Wish Maker, and the VHS of Power Rangers Dino Thunder: Day of the Dino.

2001 (Playhouse Disney)

Bumper: On a pink/magenta background, the words "Join Us After The Program" in a sky blue color zoom in one row at a time, all the while handprints appear all over the background. As the bumper finishes, a circle cuts to a black background.

FX/SFX: The handprints, the words zooming in, and the circle cutting the screen.

Cheesy Factor: The circle cutting the screen at the end looks very choppy and rough. The circle first cuts out at a slow and smooth pace, and then quickly speeds up near the end.

Music/Sounds: A whimsical woodwind jingle, with Brian Cummings saying "Join us after the program for more excitement from Disney!" This is the same jingle that was used on the feature program variant and other IDs of its type.

Availability: Extremely rare, as it was only used for a short time. Furthermore, only three tapes are known to have this bumper: The Book of Pooh: Fun With Words, The Book of Pooh: Fun With Friends and the 2001 reprint of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. Any post-2001 releases will have either the 7th or 8th bumpers.

Scare Factor: None to low. It's a cute bumper, but it's sudden appearance and the choppy cut to a black background might catch a few off-guard.

International Versions

United Kingdom

Early '90s

Stay Tuned Logo 1990


Bumper: On a black background, the gold and shiny words "STAY TUNED" are seen in a Rockwell font.

FX/SFX: A shine going across the text.

Trivia: Interestingly, not only does this have an American-sounding announcer, but also the announcer is Brian Cummings, and his voiceover (mentioned below) is cut out and used in the 3rd American Bumper. Besides, if this bumper was seen on the 1991 American/Canadian VHS release of Ducktales the Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp (which would've been really cool), this bumper would be followed by the 1989 Gold Feature Presentation bumper.

Music/Sounds: None, except Brian Cummings saying "Stay tuned after our feature, for a look at other great titles available from Walt Disney Home Video." After that, there's three seconds of silence before the bumper fades out.

Availability: Rare; as of now, it can be seen only on the 1991 UK VHS release of Ducktales The Movie: Treasure of the Lost Lamp.

Scare Factor: Low. Although the text and the announcer can frighten some, but it's tame otherwise.

Walt Disney Home Video International Stay Tuned Bumper 1992-199300:17

Walt Disney Home Video International Stay Tuned Bumper 1992-1993

Bumper: The 1986 Coming Soon from Walt Disney Home Video bumper animates, but the difference is, the background is blue. After the bumper is completed, it fades out and the Disney's Sing-Along Songs logo fades in and then the bumper fades to black.

FX/SFX: The Coming Soon from Walt Disney Home Video bumper animating, the fading in of the Sing-Along Songs logo.

Music/Sounds: An announcer says "Stay tuned after the end of the main feature, for a special preview of one of our forthcoming releases from Disney's Sing-Along Songs".

Availability: Seen on a few British Disney VHS releases, including Cinderella and Basil The Great Mouse Detective (1992 release).

Scare Factor: Medium to High. The announcer and the fading of the 1986 Walt Disney Home Video logo can frighten a few viewers.

1993-1996

Stay Tuned Disney 1993-1996 Bumper

Bumper: On a blue background, we see the words "STAY TUNED" in yellow/orange gradient lettering.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: Depending on the variant:

  • On 1993-1994 releases, Pat Sharp says "There'll be more news about the magical new releases from Disney Video, coming up after the film."
  • On 1994-1995 releases, John Sachs says the same as before with one notable change,  "Disney Video" is now "Walt Disney Home Video", "There'll be more news about the magical new releases from Walt Disney Home Video, coming up after the film."
  • On 1995-1996 releases, John Sachs says "Stay tuned for news of great future releases from Disney Videos, after this feature."

Scare Factor:

  • 1993-1994: Low to Medium. The excited and slightly spooky-sounding voice of Pat Sharp can startle some who aren't expecting it, especially those expecting either one of the later two bumpers.
  • 1994-1995: Low, thanks to John Sachs who is much more calmer than Pat Sharp.
  • 1995-1996: Low to High. The announcer can spook a few.
