Background: WFSU-TV is a PBS affiliate located in Tallahassee, Florida owned by Florida State University.

1st Logo

Logo: On a black background, a red line twirls in with a trail effect, giving off several copies. When it settles, the text "WFSU" is seen in place. A sky blue bar then appears and twirls with the same effect under it, forming "TALLAHASSEE". It then gets replaced with a yellow bar, doing the same thing as before but mirrored, forming "PRESENTS" in its place.

FX/SFX: The trailing, twirling lines.

Music/Sounds: 3 sets of xylophone tunes, each in a different order and play when the lines twirl.

Availability: Extinct. Seen on Watermarks andDragons of Paradise.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo

: "Circle 11"

Logo: On a black background, a incomplete ring outline, with 2 1's at different heights sticking out of the ends on the bottom, trails along the middle of the screen, leaving a thick blue line. The line then rotates to the right, revealing the 11 again as it shortens and flashes, filling up with blue. A blue trail then swerves into view, revealing the text "WFSU-TV" in a white outline, which also retracts. It also flashes and fills with blue, while "TALLAHASSEE" can be seen in a small blue print.

FX/SFX: The logo flipping, which is an 80's standard.

Music/Sounds: A repeating set of synth beats which adjust in tone, followed by an ascending/descending synth "WAH!" sound, ending with a descending series of synth beats.

Availability: Uncommon. Can be found on episodes of Southern Circuits around the time period, which can be found on their YT channel.

Editor's Note: None.

: "Flipping Florida"

Logo: On a faded black/teal gradient background, a yellow 2D map of the state of Florida flips in, with a red star on it at the top, representing Tallahassee's location, and hence being the capital and a dark brown outline. At the same time, "
WFSU TALLAHASSEE", in dark red Helvetica font, and italicized, flips in and flies down, positioning beneath the map. At the end, the map comes into focus, and a whitish shadow is drawn around Florida.

FX/SFX: The logo flipping, which is an 80's standard.

Music/Sounds: Two synthesized "church bells" (which is a preset off the Yamaha DX7 called "TUB. BELLS"), ending in a fuzzy synth note.

Availability: This logo can be seen on old Body Electricand
Southern Circuits episodes, as well as Tall Timbers Into The Light.

Editor's Note: While the logo is attempting to be tranquil, it ends up appearing dark. The music may sound nice to someone, however.

4th Logo

Logo: On a waving blue curtain background, the silver text "WFSU" is seen with an embossed effect, with white on the left edges and dark on the right edges. Below is the text "Tallahassee", also in silver, but in a different, non-embossed font.

FX/SFX: The background waving.

Music/Sounds: A deep note in the background, while an ascending synth bell tune plays until the logo fades out.

Availability: Seen on
Energy: In the Long Run.

Editor's Note: Rather boring compared to the other logos, and it just looks like it was plastered over a live-action background.
