No.TV Productions

Background: No.TV Productions is a TV channel in the United States serving around 500 viewers. The service started in 1975.

1st Logo
(1975-1979)
Logo: We see nine squares. The square in the middle zooms in and starts flashing black and white. The text "No.TV Productions" fades in red. At this point, the square has stopped flashing. A byline pops up on the bottom, depicting @YEAR No.TV Productions (the @ symbol was the company's famous way of depicting a copyright). The end result shows the text placed over a blue and white diagonal striped background.
FX/SFX: The flashing squares, the text appearing. Rather strange for 1975.
Music/Sounds: A constant synth sound being repeated (think of the beginning of the 1978 CTW logo, but the same tone and a bit louder).
Availability: Seen on Ten Things You Didn't Know About No., and What the Hell is Ice Cream? I'm Sure I've Tasted It, But It Sounds Kinda Cold.

Scare Factor: Low to medium. The animation and music might get to some, but it's a rather tame logo.
2nd Logo
(1979-1985)
Logo: We see No.'s profile picture. The picture flashes negative three times and returns to normal. The text "/\/O.7¯V" then appears, with a byline.
FX/SFX: The negative flashing, which shows poor effort. Still, this logo managed to last 6 years.
Music/Sounds: None.
Availability: Seen on seasons 4-8 of What the Hell is Ice Cream...., along with Nothing: The TV Show You Never Knew About: Redux. Also seen on I Think There'll be a TV Show In Thirty Years called The Nutshack.

Scare Factor: Minimal. The flashing seems a bit odd, but it's harmless.
