Thread: Early HBO Intro

    I've been reminiscing about the days of the big C-Band dish and one of things I remember was the old HBO Feature Presentation intro where the logo was flying through space with this awesome music. I have found a WAV file of the music, but I'd love to have the video to go along with it. Does anyone happen to know where it could be found? Of course I'd love to find other old intros, or bumpers, not sure what they are called. Especially early MTV stuff (back before the channel sucked) such as:

    The astronaut on the moon with the MTV Flag,
    "Sometimes It's just safer to stay inside and watch MTV",
    and of course, "Doodle Doodle Dee, Wubba Wubba Wubba"

    Great site by the way!

      Awesome! I just found a whole treasure trove of old bumpers and logos, including all the HBO stuff. This site has almost everything! Unfortunately they are in the sucky Real format that won't die for some reason, but it's better than nothing.

      Now if someone were still able to find any of this stuff in a better format like AVI or MPEG that would be great as well.

          OMG!!! I so remember this!! When we had HBO as a kid, I rarely watched it, but I used to love this particular bumper (because of the sequence and the music), the one you were referring to. I remember it being used for like the 8 o'clock movies on Saturdays. ^_^

            What a great find! My favorite ones are the Dutch ones, but specially from RTL 4.

              It's been ages since I've seen those Cinemax & HBO Bumpers.. I mainly remember the HBO ones the most.

                I remember that old HBO intro with it flyin and the cool music that rocked
                have it on tape somewhere...
                It's OK, next time I'll make you listen. I wish that it were in the power of all children to say that to their parents and to know that indeed they would be heard as we were in those wonderful days on Waltons Mountain.Narrator The Waltons (From the Runawa

                    I just submitted a copy to the Retro Junk library. It should be there shortly.

                          When I was little every time I saw that I assume that "Aliens" was coming on. (I was a bit scared of it back then. LOL!)
