In late 1997, Fox Kids had two sets of commercial bumpers.

The first theme was animated bumpers with “Bartok”. This only aired for about six weeks. It was from September 6, 1997 to mid-October, 1997. This theme is the subject of this list.

The second theme featured live-action kids. This aired from September 6, 1997 to February 5, 1998.


Fox Kids Fall 1997 bumpers
Bartok

In-
Bartok and the logo hang on the ceiling. “Hang around, ’cause we’ll be right back.”

Out-
They are still on the ceiling. The logo falls. “And, now, back to Fox Kids. Oh, that’s gotta hurt.”

In-
He turns the logo into a guitar. “We’ll be right back.”

Out-
He is still playing the guitar. “The bat is back, and, now, we’re back to Fox Kids.”

In-
He turns the logo into a skateboard. “Dude, we’ll be right back. Look, I’m winging it.”

Out-
He is still riding on the skateboard. He jumps off a half pipe. “And, now, back to Fox Kids. Whoa, major grindage.”

In-
He paints a picture of the logo. “And, voila! I call it ‘we’ll be right back.’ Thank you.”

Out-
“Where’s Fox Kids?” He bumps into the logo while he is flying. “Now, back to Fox Kids.”

In-
“Batter up!” He flies upward. “Whatever you say, Mack. We’ll be right back.”

Out-
“What’s up?” It looks like he is hanging on the ceiling. Then, the camera angle is flipped. He is actually standing on the ground. The logo falls on top of him.

In-
“Check this out.” He grabs the logo during a trapeze act. The unseen crowd gasps. “We’ll be right back!” He falls. The crowd says “aw”.

Out-
An announcer says “and, now, back to Fox Kids.” “Finally!”

In-
He pulls out part of the letter “x” from the logo. He starts a “sword fight” with the logo. “Eh. We’ll be right back.”

Out-
He smashes his part of the letter “x” back into the logo. “Hey, look, we’re going back to Fox Kids.”

In-
He bounces on the logo. “We’ll… be… right… back.”

Out-
He bounces on the logo, again. “And, now, let’s bounce back to Fox Kids. Oy!”

In-
He is sleeping. He breathes in the logo when he inhales. Then, it comes out when he exhales. An announcer says “we’ll be right back”.

Out-
He is sleeping on top of the logo. An alarm wakes him up. “Hey, get up and get back to Fox Kids!”
