Creepiest TV logos from our childhood

Back in the day, when there were only 3 Network TV channels and a PBS Channel, it was not uncommon for little children to be frightened of TV closing logos. Believe it or not, there are a whole slew of youtube videos dedicated to the “scare factor”. Really, blaring horns, creepy LFO sweeping synths, were scary to a 4-6 year old.

Here is a collection of some of the scarier ones. Today, they are mild, but then…? Very scary! This particular collection has the non-spooky version of the screen gems logo. But some still have that jump-out-of your seat effect I am sure the clips were made to inspire.
