Nicknames: The ABC Circle", "Yellow ABC", "Modern ABC"
Logo: Over a black background, we see several yellow circles and shapes zooming forth, eventually segueing into a yellow ABC logo zooming in. The text "Entertainment" appears below, along with a copyright stamp.
Trivia: This was based off the on-air bumpers that ABC had at the time.
One variant had this logo on a yellow background and the ABC circle logo with the word "Entertainment" and the copyright stamp in a black color. A longer variant exists, where all the shapes and text criss-cross over each other before going to the normal formation.
FX/SFX: The yellow circles zooming.
Music/Sounds: A cycle of 2 record scratches, followed by a hip-hop version of the 4-note ABC jingle. The variant uses an extended variant of the music; the closing notes are a little slower than normal.
Availability: Uncommon. Seen on America's Funniest Home Videos episodes of the era, and on the DVD of America's Funniest Home Videos: Volume One.
Scare Factor: None.
Nickname: "Color Ripples"
Logo: It's a shortened version of a 2002 ABC bumper, only it cuts to when the text "ABC" appears on a yellow background, and "Entertainment" and a copyright stamp appears below the ABC logo as the background turns green.
FX/SFX: Same as the 2002 ABC bumper.
Music/Sounds: A 4-note dramatic orchestral tune based on the ABC jingle. Sometimes it's the last 3 notes of the ABC bumper this was adapted from.
Availability: Seen on reruns of America's Funniest Home Videos from the era.
Scare Factor: Low to medium. The theme can throw some off guard.
Nicknames: "The Forming ABC", "The ABC Ripple"
Logo: We have the black ABC circle with the letters "abc" in its usual font forming on the circle. The circle backs away to the center of a blue background when we later see the word "Entertainment" and the ABC, Inc. copyright stamp fading in below. From behind the circle logo we see the letters "abc" forming a ripple from small to large letters.
Trivia: This logo was based off the on-air indent ABC had in 2003.
FX/SFX: The letters forming, the ABC ripple.
Music/Sounds/Voice-over: A piano rendition of the ABC theme, with some drumbeats, which like before also has an extended version, and sometimes with an announcer announcing: "Thanks for watching ABC".
Availability: Can be seen on AFV episodes. This was also used to plaster the ABC Productions logo on the Bob Saget episodes of the show. It even appears on disc 4 of the America's Funniest Home Videos: Volume One DVD release. The full version can be seen on Amazon Instant Video of AFV .
Scare Factor: None to minimal. The letters zooming at you may get to some.
