Bumper: On a red background, we see multiple copies of Disney's trademark Sleeping Beauty Castle logo sliding across the screen. Then the Disney script logo (the red word "Disney" on a yellow rectangle) zooms up from the bottom and faces the screen, and as it shrinks to the top left corner, a crusted square breaks from the backdrop revealing the words "FAVORITE STORIES" on a purple background.
