: "Cincinnati Life", "Disney Rip-Off", "Life Around Cincinnati"

Logo: Against a black background, "Cincinnati", in
red letters, comes in from the right one-by-one with light trails behind them. Then, from the dot of the first I, four video screens zoom in, which have video clips playing that show various goings-on throughout Cincinnati. Then, the screens slide away to each corner of the screen with little red, blue, and yellow lights flashing in their wake to show the words

Cincinnati, ohio
in a golden yellow color on the same background from before. "WCET-TV" glows brightly.

Some of the video clips include:
  1. A Cincinnati Reds game
  2. A roller-coaster
  3. A shot of a lake near Cincinnati skyline
  4. A man and his son in a park
  5. A couple talking in front of a fountain
  6. The Cincinnati Ballet Troupe
FX/SFX: The video and light effects; very impressive animation for 1976, but it became dated after awhile.

Music/Sounds: An uplifting orchestra tune led by violins, which sounds like something off an old Disney Channel ID (hence the 2nd nickname).

Availability: Extremely rare/near extinction. Was seen on Lillias! Yoga and You episodes from this era.

Editor's Note: Some may be bothered by the light effects, but this logo has great animation and music.

2nd Logo

Nickname: "The Paddle Steamer"

Logo: We see "WCET", outlined in purplish-pink (and I believe in a font similar to KCET's), over "Cincinnati", zooming in over an image of a paddle steamer at night.

FX/SFX: The zoom-in. Not even close to as impressive as the previous logo.

Music/Sounds: None. Using the previous logo's music (or even a synth tune!) would've been cool.

Availability: See above.

Editor's Note: None. It's just boring, even more boring than the latest one.
