A lot of people dislike the Verizon boot animation on the Galaxy S4 including myself. So I replaced mine with the stock Samsung one that comes on other Galaxy S4 variants.
Found this on XDA here - How to remove Verizon S4 Samsung BootAnimation and put the S4 Samsung BootAnimat - xda-developers
I changed mine manually using Root Explorer but you can flash a .zip in recovery that will do the same.
