Status Partially Found

Since the fall of 1997, Kids' WB! began airing commercial bumpers that feature a CGI rendition of the Warner Bros. studio lot, accompanied by a rubbery, CGI version of the block's logo. Ever since the 2001 packaging began, live-action kids were soon added into the CGI backlot environment. The bumpers were produced by Riverstreet Productions and Blur Studio, both of which continued the branding work for the block until its inception in 2008.

While a pretty vast selection of these bumps exist online in some form, there are still others are pretty hard to find to this day. Missing bumpers include most of the ones that aired around the 1999-2000 season, as well as a select few from 2001.

The individual animators will occasionally upload these, as well as promos, as part of their portfolios. They are usually in pristine quality, since they're sourced from the original digital files rather than being home VHS rips. For example, Doug Chapin's YouTube channel.

Seen those before, as well as a pretty huge selection of spots by another former WB alumni, Xandad. Though that's more-so for any of the spots that were produced in-house, not so much the ones outsourced from Riverstreet/Blur Studio, which are pretty much all the ones I've showcased here.
