1st Logo (1979)

Logo: On a blue background, we see the Arkansas Educational Television Commission logo, consisting of four orange and yellow ovals (the first and fourth ones being orange and the second and third ones being yellow) with the network's initials ("a", "e", "t", and "c" respectively) inside them in a black ABC-like font, and the words "arkansas educational television commission" in all lowercase letters next to them.

FX/SFX: The logo fading in and out.

Music/Sounds: A short rhode organ tune.

Availability: Seen on "Money Magic".

2nd Logo (1983-1987)

Logo: On a black background, a golden flash appears and forms a ring. The ring rotates to the front, then it flashes again to form the words "AETN". Orange sparkles are seen below the words, which form the words "An" (above "AETN") and "Presentation" (below "AETN"), a copyright year stamp, "Arkansas Educational Television Network", and "All Rights Reserved".The ring then glows blue, and the logo stays on-screen for 5 seconds, while continuing to shine.

FX/SFX: The golden flash, the ring rotating, the forming flash, the sparkles, the blue glow, and the shining of the ring and words.

Music/Sounds: The last few seconds of “Byte by Byte”, the original theme for The Computer Chronicles.

Availability: Seen on Nowhere to Go But Up, which can be viewed on the American Archive of Public Broadcasting.
