1st Logo
(Late '80s-Early '90s)

Logo: We see a black circle spin around on a white BG, then face the viewer. A piece of the circle near the bottom is cropped off and flies away upward. Five horizontal lines are drawn through the circle, then the word


in the colors and font you see here, appear one by one on the circle in a jumbled manner. "VIDEO", in red, slides in from the right on the lines, when the last chime note is at the high pitch, the whole logo turns into a dust.

FX/SFX: All the 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: A drum beat with several rising "chimes" that play to the appearance of the lines and letters, with the last one reverberating and ascending to a really high pitch.

Availability: Seen on some Australian releases of music videos like Clowning Around, and early ABC Video releases (although some have the 2nd logo).

2nd Logo

Festival Video (C. 1987)
Logo: On a rough textured white background we see a square, kind of like a CD case and a circle over lapping it, and on the square it says


and at the end the logo turns (via page turn effect) and cuts to the ABC Video logo.

FX/SFX: The page turn at the end of the logo.

Music/Sounds: None.

Availability: Rare. Can be found on some ABC videos like early VHS tapes ofThomas the Tank Engine and Friends.
