1st Logo (1981)
Logo: On a black background, we see a white circle in the middle of the screen. Then, several multicolored lasers start moving inside the circle, which zooms in to fill the rest of the screen. After a bit, the words "1981" and "es" ("is" in Spanish) zoom in from the top of the screen and curve down like a rollercoaster. When they stop at the middle of the screen, copies of each of the numbers "1" separate from them and fly below "es" where they form the number "11", after which the letters "o ce" wipe in around them, forming the word "once" ("eleven") in a stylized font, with "11" representing the letter "n". The text then zooms out into the background, leaving the lasers.
Technique: The lasers and the circle, the text zooming in and the logo forming.
2nd Logo (1982-1983)
Logo: On a black background, we see a grid scrolling along the bottom of the screen with a blue horizon. White lines then appear in the distance and draw the outline of an obelisk, which is then filled in with white as two rows of skyscrapers with shining windows wipe in. This creates an effect similar to the print logo at the time, before a circle with the top of the obelisk inside zooms in until it covers the screen, where most of the obelisk fades out and the blue trapezium that remains morphs into a rectangle as a line of light moves from the top of the screen to the bottom, cutting it in half to form the number "11" and forming the words "L.S. 84 TV CANAL 11 BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA", while two gold lights move towards "11", scanning the outlines of the letters "ca al". When they meet, the letters "ca al in a blocky bronze font fade in and complete the word "canal", and a metallic shine appears on the logo.
Variant: A completely different, shorter version exists. On a black background, four light sparks in different colors and with two thick lines on the ends of each one fly across the screen. A blue light spark then appears and splits, drawing a pair of thick blue lines in the middle of the screen, with a white outline slowly expanding around them. The rest of the logo then forms in a similar fashion to the end of the main version. This version uses an abridged version of the synth cello thme.
Technique: The obelisk being drawn, the skyscrapers appearing, the logo forming.
Music/Sounds: A theme composed of synth beeping, followed by a synth flute/cello tune and an announcer saying "Desde Buenos Aires transmite LS 84 TV, Canal Once." ("From Buenos Aires transmits LS 84 TV, Channel Eleven.").
3rd Logo (1983)
Logo: On a black background, we see an orange neon-lined lion with a blue crown (Leoncio, the channel's mascot at the time) next to a neon blue camera. He begins to operate the camera and a neon blue "O" is emitted from the camera. The lion and camera fade out and the letters "N", "C", and "E" fade in, forming "ONCE". The word spins in a panoramic view and a neon cowboy on horseback leaps out of the "C" and takes out a lasso as "ONCE" fades out. The lasso splits into 5 circles and the cowboy and horse disappear. 2 of the circles disappear and the remaining 3 turn into women dancing the can-can. The logo then cuts to a couple about to kiss in a dim room with smoke around it. We then cut to a ballerina dancing inside the "O" as the camera zooms in. The ballerina then morphs into a curtain which opens to reveal a clown's face. We then cut to a person playing an electric guitar in the "O", as the camera zooms in, before cutting to a person with a camera looking around and a satellite spinning around a purple planet. We then cut to a diver in the "O" preparing to jump, and they jump as the camera follows them and they morph into a plane that flies through the "O". The logo zooms out, revealing the words "CANAL ONCE" as "LS 84 TV CANAL 11 - BUENOS AIRES - ARGENTINA" in blue fades in below.
Technique: The neon objects and various people, the transitions.
Music/Sounds: A synthesized theme that plays for the entirety of the logo, changing to fit each scene. For example, while the three women dance the can-can, a synthesized arrangement of Infernal Galop from Offenbach's Orpheus in the Underworld (the tune most associated with this dance) is heard. On some occassions, an announcer says "Desde Buenos Aires transmite LS 84 TV, Canal Once.".
Availability: Extinct. Might have been used in tandem with the 2nd and 4th logos.
4th Logo (1984-1985)
The video of this logo may be too loud or severely distorted.
Logo: On a black background, the word "canal" in yellow zooms in while two large, italicized "1"s with a red outline fly in, one slowly from the center and the other quickly from the top right. The "1"s also have thin "ramps" attached to the bottom of them. When they collide with each other, the outlines quickly fill in with white, the background becomes blue and the "11" becomes red, before darkening as a white gradient fills the bottom half. The words "LS 84 TV", in white and in a stacked position, then wipe in next to the "11", followed by "BUENOS AIRES" and "ARGENTINA".
Technique: The pieces of the "11" flying in, the text appearing.
Music/Sounds: A heavy synth theme with 3 very loud notes at the beginning, an announcer saying "Transmite LS 84 TV, Canal Once, Buenos Aires, Argentina.", and a series of computer beeps.
5th Logo (1985-1986)
Logo: On a black background, several stripes in orange and yellow shades wipe in and form a downward tube shape, after which a mound with a yellow arrow on its tip forms inside. Everything but the arrow then fades to blue, while the arrow fades to red, before becoming a red "11" as the text "CANAL ONCE" fades in below, along with the text "LS 84 TV CANAL 11 BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA" below it.
Technique:The Scanimated lines, the logo forming.
Music/Sounds: A dreamy synth tune with an announcer saying "Transmite LS 84 Televisión, Canal Once, Buenos Aires, Argentina.".
6th Logo (1986-1988)
Logo: On a space background with the stars zooming out, the word "canal" in an indigo futuristic font flips into place, while a white "II" flips onto the "n" and plasters itself on its place. The text "LS 84 TV BUENOS AIRES ARGENTINA" in white and in a stack fades in
Music/Sounds: A different dreamy synth tune with an announcer saying "Transmite LS 84 Televisión, Canal Once, Buenos Aires, Argentina.".
7th Logo (1988-1989)
Logo: On a black background with an orange glow in the lower right, seventeen lines with a couple of bumps across them are drawn in and two more lines that are perpendicular to the others are drawn in under them. Another row of lines draws itself in, comes in contact with the bottom lines, and flashes. The lines disappear and the glow spot turns into a row of long rectangles, which fly towards the screen and rotate forward. Once the rectangles move to the other side, a white square, two black rectangles with what seems to be white outlines of landscapes on them, and the words "LS 84" in a Art Deco font fly in and stop at different places on the screen. The letters of the word "canal", now in a pink and aqua font, zoom out and rotate as the "II" zooms out with a particle effect. Another white square rotates to the top of the screen, "BUENOS AIRES" fades in below the logo, and "LS 84" shines.
Technique: A mix of CGI and 2D animation.
Music/Sounds: An upbeat theme with an announcer saying "Transmite LS 84 Televisión, Canal Once, Buenos Aires, Argentina.".
8th Logo (1989)
Logo: In what appears to be a warehouse, we see a large gray block with several copies of the Canal Once logo of the time (a "C" with an "O" inside) on it. Several gray blocks fly in to form a line, and when the 4th block flies in, a gold version of the logo with the "O" spinning rotates in. The letters "nce", also in gold, fly in to complete the word "Once as three lines (one red, one green and one yellow) slide in. The words "Ls 84 Canal 11 Bs. As." in yellow slide in as a green line slides to the top of the line, while the "O" continues to spin.
Technique: The box forming and lines.
Music/Sounds: An dark rock tune with an announcer saying "LS 84 Televisión, Canal Once, Buenos Aires, Argentina."..
