(October 4, 1988)
Bumper: On a blue-black gradient background, we see at the top of the screen the Walt Disney Mini-Classics logo on the left and the words "Collect Them All!" on the right, afont that's almost visually the same as that used for the Nickelodeon logo. Below it is a list of titles in the Mini-Classics series.
Music/Sounds: A dreamy tune consisting of ringing bells, with the last one left echoing until fadeout.
Availability: Rare. Only seen on the 1988 VHS release of The Wind in the Willows.
Scare Factor: Low to high. The sudden music surprise to those who don't expect it. It also depends on how you think of the music. The music does sound rather loud and eerie, although the still picture is tamer than the eerie music.
(August 31, 1989)
Bumper: Same as the last logo, except the titles are more spaced out and one screen crossfades into another screen of titles.
FX/SFX: The crossfades.
Music/Sounds: A shortened version of the Walt Disney Mini-Classics logo music.
Availability: Slightly more common than the last one. Seen on the 1989 VHS releases of Ben and Me and Bongo.
Scare Factor: Very low to medium. None for those used to it. It depends on how you feel of the music and crossfades. Much tamer than the last bumper, because the music is tamer than the last one, although the sudden fadeout could scare some.
(October 12, 1989-June 7, 1991)
Bumper: Same as the last logo, except with more screens added and the titles fade in and out rather that crossfading.
Variant: In 1991, an extra titles screen was added and the fades were a bit faster.
FX/SFX: The titles fading in and out.
Music/Sounds: A soft, jolly dance tune, which originated in the 1936 Mickey Mouse short "Thru the Mirror".
Availability: Much more common than the last logo. Seen on the 1989 VHS releases of the four Winnie the Pooh featurettes and later prints of Ben and Me and Bongo, as well as the 1991 VHS's of Peter and the Wolf, Willie the Operatic Whale and The Prince and the Pauper, but some 1989 VHS copies of Mickey's Christmas Carol have the other 1989 WDMC promo. The 1991 Mini-Classics promo is also seen on the 1991 reprint on The Reluctant Dragon. Don't expect this on the 1993 reprints of the Pooh featurettes, as they have their own special promo at the end of the tape (and that special promo would get updated in the reprints of the same featurettes only 1 YEAR later!). Surprisingly, the 1991 Mini-Classics promo appeared on the 1995 Disney's Favorite Stories VHS of The Wind in the Willows.
Scare Factor: None. Much tamer than before. The music sounds even more cheerful than the last one.
