1st Logo (1986-1988)

Logo: We see pink filmstrips with a blue background and chromed numbers, in a rounded font, inside each cell. The background is a dim grayish-green. The numbers flash as they are being shown (starting from "6" even though numbers up to "9" are shown). The camera zooms in specifically on the "2", which is in a circle like all the other numbers. Then. "TELE DOS" with a "2" next to it in a bold blue font zoom out on an orange-yellow gradient background. "El canal de las noticias" is on the bottom in black. Station info is seen at the bottom.

Variant: An abridged version existed, where the logo starts at the 2, but the zoom out is much earlier.

Technique: The filmstrips appearing, the numbers shining, and the zoom-out.

Music/Sounds: It begins with a typical 80s sounder, with an ethereal synth throughout the logo. Ends in a similar fashion in which it begins. An announcer says "Transmite LS 86 TV Canal 2, Teledos, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Republica Argentina, el mejor pais del mundo." ("Broadcasting LS 86 TV Channel 2, Teledos, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentine Republic, the best country in the world.").

Availability: Extinct.

2nd Logo (1988-1989)

Logo: On a space background, we see a blue flying saucer flying around (which is actually a scene from John Carpenter's The Thing). Once it's near the corner of the screen, the animation freezes. A "2" is shot from the lower part of the flying saucer, then the number dissapears and the word "TELEDOS" slides from below. A white cloud appear in the other corner, where the channel indicator/name and those of the other stations appear. Once all the stations are presented, the flying saucer flies again, this time in reverse and out of the screen.

Variant: Theres a shortened version in which only the main channel is presented.

Technique: 3D animation, plagiarized from John Carpenter's The Thing.

Music/Sounds: A futuristic tune. The sound of the flying and the announcer saying the channel name and other stations. When the animation is shortened, the main channel is the only mentioned.

Availability: Extinct.



Logo: On a black background, a shiny golden "2" with an rainbow-colored arc (resembling an Indian headdress) flies in from the bottom of the screen, rotating into place as it does. The "2" then zooms out as "TEVEDOS" in a Western-like font drops in from the top of the screen and flips into place, as station info appears below. As the music ends, the "2" warps around as the text zooms away from the screen as the logo becomes normal.

Technique: Simple animation.

Music/Sounds: The Back To The Future theme, along with either an male or female announcer saying "Transmite LS 86 TV Canal 2, Teledos, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Republica Argentina." ("Broadcasting LS 86 TV Channel 2, Teledos, La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentine Republic.").

Availability: Extinct.
