    This isnt a PBS logo, but its still kind of scary,,,go here: http://www.tfarchive.com/cartoons/videoclips/bones.php, and select the transformers season 2 closing credits. Watch the whole way through, and get to the end right after starscream transforms and flies away. The sunbow/marvel logo then comes up with some weird unexplainable noise. This only happened on season 2 of transformers, and it was the only sunbow show to use this weird sound effect too, making it even weirder.

    The old-school CTW is kind of freaky.

    Too much--if you look in the links section there, you can find the very first 3-2-1 Contact episode! Wow!

    By the way, you know the scene in the 3-2-1 opening where a hand is holding a raw eyeball? THAT scared me more than any logo ever could--I always looked away right before it appeared.

    I still love the old school WGBH Boston logo for PBS. I grew up with it and I still think it's cool. Yet that clip is missing the voice over.

    Update in the PBS Saga: there was actually a "placeholder" logo that aired for one year, in between the time that PBS took over NET and the time they finally got their moog synthesizer wound up.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRQaZWJ6Gwk&mode=related&search=PBS

    It sounds like whoever made the video shot it primitively in a crowded area.

    You know what I want? A PBS moog ringtone....don't you?

    I hate bringing up this old thread again, but I just checked out a site, http://www.tv-ark.org.uk which features some clips of some old US TV network opening and closing logos, and played almost all of them.

    I can still feel the chills going down my spine, as well as all my gray hairs standing on end!(Particularly the NBC and ABC color logos!)

    ^ Where on that site are the US TV logos? All I could find were UK ones, which I've never seen before so can't get nolstalgic about.

    Color NBC logo... ooooo, I remember that!

    You have to click on "International" on Ark-TV's Home Page, then click on "US TV Networks."

    Although alot of those british idents have snuck overseas as well.

    IE: ITC's dreaded Spinning Top, the Central Television Cake (spotted on Inspector Morse in the 90's), LWT (on repeats of Upstairs Downstairs), and of course... the Thames Skyline.

    I'm at the library again. I'm only here to say this: I found what has to be the creepiest primitive sound ever attached to a closing logo...it's very obscure; I've never heard of the small syndication company that used it. The logo is black-and-white and was attached to a showing of Make Room For Daddy that was taped in 1983.

    Actually, WGBH is creepier, but this noise is really high up there (and it has the "snake" type sliding logo appearance that the rest of them used). Look forward to the upload in the future. I should donate it to that logo site, since they don't even have the company that it stood for listed.

    ....Nothing gets by you, does it?

    Seriously, where do you keep all that info?

    Hey, my Annenberg is different! A soft-voiced woman says the line instead of a man (and it sounds better).

    Sounds like that NET came from a news story on Mr. Rogers or something (based on what he says at the beginning, "I was one of the first to...")

    Sorry for the bump. The "Surprise" variant of the 1993 PBS Kids logo is a bit creepy.
