2nd Logo

KPTS logo from 1981Nickname: "Wheat"

Logo: We see three live-action strands of wheat blowing back and forth against a
blue stripy background. "KPTS", in a sort-of futuristic cursive yellow display font you might find on old 1950s cars and tires, fades in on the bottom-right. "WICHITA", in yellow Handel Gothic font (like "HOME VIDEO" in the 1983 Walt Disney Home Video logo) fades in below "KPTS".

FX/SFX: Not much on animation.

Music/Sounds: Again, unknown.

Availability: This was seen on locally-produced shows from KPTS from that era. It also showed up on the anniversary special.

Editor's Note: None, it's just boring.
