then "U.S.A" shines.

FX: CGI.

Music/Sounds: A WHOOSH followed by a synth beat.

Availability: Ultra rare, seen on VHS releases until 1993.

Scare factor: Low, the animation is boring, but the music is cool. But somewhat will change on the next logo...

3rd logo
(1993-2004)

Nicknames: "90's Flag", "Flag of Doom", "CGI Flag", "Yet Another Explosion on Space", "Super Scary Flag", "The Reason for why people run on old U.S.A Home Video releases"

Logo: Against an space BG, an explosion occurs. Then an american flag flips into his place. When the flag stops, the words "U.S.A Home Video" zooms in below the flag. In a few seconds, the WHOLE logo fades out to black!

FX: BREATHTAKING CGI compared to the 2nd logo!

Cheesy Factor: Cheese Me! The explosion is very cheesy for the early 90's.

Music/Sounds: An ultra loud explosion sound, then it's silent.

Availability: Seen on VHS releases starting in 1993 and DVDs starting in 2001.

Scare factor: High to NIGHTMARE due to the explosion and sound. It's also known as one of the most scariest logos ever made with the Globe Video "Exploding Globe". Low for these who are used to seeing it.

Scare factor: NONE, it's a welcome change from the scary Flag of Doom!!!
