Added DiffLines:

* Classic Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} ad bumpers featured a cast of zany cartoon animals and the [[EarWorm impossible to forget]] Nickelodeon theme. The ad bumpers would occasionally turn into NightmareFuel with SoundtrackDissonance. It was an experimental time. Not like today. You kids don't even know.

* ChannelFour's spinoff channel E4, for its first few years, would have ad bumpers consisting of one word, with both bumpers in one ad break forming some two-word phrase, so (as an example) before the ads it would say "Hello" and after "World". Eventually sent up by both words once being "Bling".

** For quite some time after that it had bumpers of science-fictional situations. For instance, in one a man sits passively as a raven flaps around him, until it lands on his bald head. The top of his head opens up into a giant fanged mouth and swallows the raven whole, then closes again as he smiles. Sadly, more recent bumpers have been simpler, just showing something rapidly turning into something else. And now some of the bumpers are shorts of the actors of SyFy original shows in some weird location such as a collapsing building or on one of M.C. Escher's famous staircase paintings tossing a football.

* The SciFiChannel (back when it really ''was'' the Sci-Fi Channel) had its "I am Sci-fi" campaign in the 1990s, where celebrities appeared in humorous science fiction scenarios (WWF wrestler Sable in a parody of ''Attack of the 50 Foot Woman'', Moby in a ''Film/CloseEncountersOfTheThirdKind'' pastiche, and so on).
