: "KEC"

Logo: On a shady turquoise background, we see three multicolored letters "K", "E" and "C"in 3D tossing and moving to form the words "KEC", which turns gradient cyan shortly after. "Kelly Entertainment Company" stacked, 3D and in white fades in word-by-word, then quickly changes color from white to blue.

FX/SFX: The 3D letters, the company name appearing.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show.

Availability: Seen on Public People Private Lives.

Editor's Note: The letters appearing out of nowhere may put people off, and the font for the letters weren't the most friendly looking.

Nicknames: "The Kelly Green Bar", "KELLY", "The Eagle"

Logo: At sunset, we see live-action footage of an eagle flying. Then, it fades to a white background, where we see a Kelly green bar that flips
horizontally down from the center that has the word "KELLY" in 3-D white lettering with the letters "K" and "Y" in bold on the green bar. The text "NEWS & ENTERTAINMENT" slides down from under the bar in black lettering and a copyright year stamp fades in below. There is a shining wipe effect on the bar and shines again two seconds later.

  • A short version starts with the logo flipping.
  • Another version has the logo in a blue bar.

FX/SFX: The eagle flying, the bar flipping horizontally, the name sliding, and the shining wipe effects.

Music/Sounds: The eagle calling, then a synth theme with a 7 note eerie whistling sound, followed by another whistling note with the sound of a ping blended in. The closing theme of the show was also used.

Availability: Extinct. Seen on the short-lived game shows Click! and Peer Pressure. Was also seen on the short-lived series Save Our Streets. The 1990 pilot Show Me (you'll find info on it at Mike Burger's GS Pilots Page) might have this logo too. The blue bar version was seen on GamePro.

Editor's Note: The eerie whistling theme can startle some.
