The Music Man (1962): We see a very large array of uniformed marchers moving forward, two further in front who are carrying on either side a wide red banner with the Warner Bros. logo on it. The camera then zooms in on the banner to show the usual logo.
Gypsy (1962): We start out with an orchestra on a stage. When the music starts, the outline of the shield is formed on a curtain, and then the inside afterward. The shield is gold.
Critic's Choice (1963): Cartoon posters of musicals appear one by one until they make up the background. Then the white shield from The Young Philadelphians fades in.

- At the beginning, as we zoom out, we see a hand opening the book to the inside cover, and then to text which says "Warner Bros., A Warner Communications Company Presents".
- At the end, the final page reads "Distributed by Warner Bros.". The book is then closed.
Blazing Saddles (1974): The 1948-1967 WB shield on a black background burns up to start the movie. The words "WARNER BROS. PICTURES" are also glowing. Seen after the 1972 logo.
Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore (1974): The 1948-1967 WB shield is seen on a cloudy background. Seen after the 1972 logo and the David Susskind credit.
The Outlaw Josey Wales (1976): On American Heroes Channel's prints, the current logo with the TimeWarner byline is still and is tinted in sepia.
The Late Show (1977): The logo features the 1937 shield without Jack L. Warner's name and "Presents". Apparently, this film was supposed to be a modern-day detective story with a 1940s feel to it.
The Bugs Bunny/Road Runner Movie (1979): A replica of the 1936-1964 Merrie Melodies cartoon intro (including red rings and a blue center) is used with the red and white WB shield and Bugs Bunny on the top of it saying "Eat your heart out, Burt Reynolds!" Only seen at the end of the movie.

City Heat (1984), Under the Cherry Moon (1986), and Heartbreak Ridge (1986): The logo is in black and white. However, on Under the Cherry Moon, the logo starts in color but fades to B&W.
The Goonies (1985): The logo fades to a skull with crossbones.
Sesame Street Presents: Follow That Bird (1985) and Here's Looking at You (TV Movie):
- At the beginning of the former (After the opening song segment), we get a brief 2-D animated segment where a cartoon Big Bird finds an air pump and a balloon. He inflates the balloon and it turns out to be a "W", which pops off and flies into the sky, where it morphs into the "W" in the "WB" shield as the rest of the shield forms around it. While this happens, Big Bird announces that "Sesame Street is brought to you today by the letters W and B."
- At the end of the former, the closing in-credit logo is yellow.
- This also appears on the latter title, with John Williams' Superman theme playing over it.
Police Academy 2: Their First Assignment (1985): The theme music starts over it. The inside of the shield has a forest green tint.
Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985): At the ending, The "PRESENTS" variant of the normal logo (with the fanfare) makes a cameo at the beginning of the overblown film adaptation of Pee-wee Herman's adventure to find his bike. Pee-wee is visiting with the hobo character and his pals when it appears on the screen in the background.
The Color Purple (1985): The logo has a very slight maroon tint.
Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer (1985): At the very end of the film, instead of the regular 1972 closing logo, we see the "Distributed by" WB shield bug seen on movie posters from 1985-90, tinted in rainbow like the credits, and scrolling with the credits.
One Crazy Summer (1986): The logo turns crudely drawn, with wiggling clouds. The byline & clouds dissipate as an evil-looking animated pink bunny, who wears a red-white striped helicopter cap (like the one seen in the following movie) and has the picture of a No Rhino sign on his body, opens the shield from inside. He laughs, and then we zoom into his mouth, seeing the opening title zoom in toward us, transitioning to the opening.
Who’s That Girl? (1987): The Warner Bros. logo with byline appears as animated on a granite background. We zoom up to the logo, the shield opens like a door, and out comes a cartoon Madonna, who closes the shield and poses sexy for the camera. The logo goes up and she moves down to make way for the opening credits.
Daffy Duck's Quackbusters (1988): The 1984 logo starts with only the sky background, but then the shield zooms in as it would on Looney Tunes/Merrie Melodies, stopping at its usual place, and then the byline fades in. A re-orchestrated version of the fanfare from the LT short Porky's Preview starting with a roaring sound as the shield zooms in plays over. This comes directly after the Daffy Duck short Night of the Living Duck, which opens the film.
Batman (1989) and Batman Returns (1992): The WB shield is a metallic orange and the byline is in a different font. The background fades to the opening shot and the logo fades out.
Gremlins 2: The New Batch (1990): Instead of the normal shield logo, a replica of the classic 1936-1964 WB "circles" cartoon logo comes up, with its text and minus the shield ("PICTURES, INC." is removed in favor of "A TIME WARNER COMPANY"). The shield then zooms up with Bugs Bunny riding it, and the text fades out. Daffy Duck then comes on screen, angrily pushes him off the shield ("50 years of you hogging the spotlight is ENOUGH!"), and tries to ride it... well, it doesn't work as good for him :) They also have another Looney Tunes-style ending, with Porky doing the usual "That's all Folks!" ending before Daffy, like before, complains of Porky hogging (no pun intended) the spotlight, saying "60 years of hogging the end title is enough". Daffy tries to say the end line, but like before, is stopped when the shield with Chuck Jones' credit comes out, hitting him in the face. He gets back up and weakly says "Fade out."
Warner Home Video movie intro (1990): The logo begins as usual (with Max Steiner's fanfare playing), until Bugs Bunny interrupts. He pops into the logo and tells the audience that the movie can't begin until you wish him a Happy Birthday. It then cuts to various Looney Tunes clips as a chorus sings "Happy Birthday to You". It then cuts back to Bugs looking rather satisfied. This appeared on an Italian VHS of Caddyshack and a UK VHS of Driving Miss Daisy.
Pure Country (1992): The logo fades to a sunset background where the credits take place.

Lethal Weapon 4 (1998): The music is off sync with the logo. After the music is over, the shield explodes into a fireball, transitioning into the opening title sequence.
You've Got Mail (1998): The background fades into a computer screen and the shield becomes pixelated. It zooms out to reveal the rest of the computer screen and its icons. (If you notice, in the bottom right corner, there is an America Online icon, which is a coincidence; Time Warner would merge with AOL in 2001.)
Jack Frost (1998): The shield & text is covered with snow and ice. Also, the cloud background is tinted in dark red.
The Matrix (1999), The Matrix Reloaded (2003), and The Matrix Revolutions (2003): The logo is tinted in green and the graphics altered so they look "computerish".

Underneath is a "A Mystery Inc. Company" byline.

Flags of Our Fathers (2006): The Warner Bros. logo is a rendition of the 1984 shield used on Contact, but in black and white. Also isn't animated.
