(Redirected from TVE Bahia (Brazil))
1st Logo (1985-1989)
Nicknames: "Blue Pac-Man", "The Clam", "The Brazilian Pac-Man Logo"
Logo: On a seafoam green background, 2 blue semicircles squirm about on screen. It then goes to a floppy-looking dark blue "2", and then eats it up, stretching as it does so. It then goes to some blocky-looking letters reading "TEV", and proceeds to eat them up as well. Then, finally, it goes to the white word "canal" with the "l" having a tail-like extension coming off it, and eats it up. It then opens up to reveal the completed logo, while forming 2 oblong border among the top and bottom of it. The logo consists of the blocky letters "TVE", with "TV" in red and "E" in blue, and "canal" can be seen on the bottom bar of the latter. Next to it is a blue "2" with some red lines off it. The top border continues to pummel the logo for a few more seconds.
FX/SFX: The animation in the logo, which looks hand-drawn.
Music/Sounds: A strange synthesized jingle, which tunes out to be more relaxed at the end. In the source where the logo was found, a female narrator can be heard over it.
Availability: Extinct. While retired during the 1980s, it made an appearance on a 2004 documentary about 80s Baiano television.
Legacy: The animation is displayed at an alarmingly low framerate, not to mention that the subject matter is almost incomprehensible. The end logo also looks rather ugly in general.
2nd Logo (1989-1996)
Logo: On a blue background, several red and blue blocks can be seen around the space as the camera pans to a forward POV, and then pans upwards. The blocks are then reveal to form the TVE logo from before, but without all the other junk, the colors inverted, and the "E" now being just horizontal blocks. The background also turns to black.
FX/SFX: The blocks.
Music/Sounds: A somber-sounding piano theme with a held-out note at the end.
3rd Logo (1996-1997)
Logo: On a dark blue background, white and red bars slowly fly across the screen, shining as they do, from the lower left corner. As it emerges fully out of the corner, a blue square is revealed and a white triangular prism flies in and inserts itself inside it, forming the Bahia state flag. The flag then breaks apart, the triangle and blue square flying away and the red and white bars rotate in opposite directions of each other, and they fly apart from each other. The 2 bars then break into 3 smaller bars and rotate around, as the camera zooms out to reveal "TV" in blue. The bars then form the "E", forming the TVE Bahia logo from before.
FX/SFX: The flag forming and breaking, the bars rotating and "TV" zooming out.
Music/Sounds: A soft-sounding synth whistle plays in the beginning, which becomes more bombastic when the flag breaks apart, ending with a 2-note ditty.
4th Logo (1997-2000?)
Logo: On a photo of a town the words "TVE" along a diamond above the "V" appear rising from it, forming a structure, then it moves away placing again to background, this time colores white, as the words are colored blue and the diamond is colored red, and the words "B A H I A" appear below.
FX/SFX: The logo.
5th Logo (2004-2005)
Logo: Just the logo from before (which looks more metallic-3D shaped) in a black background with the letters "APRESENTA" below fading in and out.
FX/SFX: The fading in and out. Way too simple, but most likely a placeholder.
Availability: Extinct. It was found on the 2004 documentary where the 1st logo was portrayed in.
6th Logo (25th Anniversary) (2010)
Music/Sounds: A synth theme.
7th Logo (2013-)
Logo: We see the logo from before (which consisted in three squares colored blue, gray and red, with the letters "TVE" on these and "BAHIA" below) fragmenting to form three cubes colored mustard, yellow and orange with the letters "TVE" and a red sphere with the letters "HD", all on a white floor/background.
FX/SFX: The logo fragmenting an forming.
Music/Sounds: A synth theme.
