Logo: On a black background, we see several purple/blue/pink lines appearing up and down, forming a TV tube shape (similar to the Qintex logo) with an M inside it. Then, a gold streak/ribbon wraps around the M, making the letter the script letter V and looking like a streak/ribbon that used in Wave 3 icons of every single Windows Live services (i.e. Windows Live Movie MakerWindows Live Messenger (now Skype), Windows Live Hotmail (now "MORRIS VIDEO" in Retro Stereo Wide font, colored blue-purple, appears below and glows brightly. The whole thing zooms out and dissolves away.

FX/SFX: The TV tube forming, the dissolving effect. It's pretty nice animation for 1984.

Music/Sounds: A creaking synth bass with a whoosh followed by an announcer saying "Morris Video" in a deformed voice.

Availability: Can be seen on Morris Video releases of children's material and instructional videos, such as Super Bowling.

Scare Factor: Medium. The music, announcer and the zoom out may scare a few people.
