1st Logo (1978-1988)
Nickname: "The Cute Eye"
Logo: We see a yellow eye slowing rolling towards us. It then stops rolling and it stays still. After staying there for 30 seconds, the text "EyeLink Video" appears below.
FX/SFX: The animation in this logo.
Cheesy Factor: None, whatsoever. This is a cute logo with really neat and simple animation.
Music/Sounds: A dreamy music ditty.
Availability: Seen on old EyeLink Video releases from 1978 to 1988.
Scare Factor: None, this is a cute logo. Compared to the next logo, it's NOTHING!
2nd Logo (1988-2002)
Nickname: "The Various Effects Logo of Doom"
Logo: It starts out dark, then it shows many red, yellow and blue bars flipping towards us. They then flip and turn purple, green and orange. Then a flash is seen and the bars disappear. Then we see "Eye" being zapped. The word "Eye" then zaps "EyeLink". "EyeLink" then zaps "Video" so that the logo would look like this:
FX/SFX: All of this animation in the logo.
Cheesy Factor: Off the charts! The effects look very primitive, even for the 80's!
Music/Sounds: 6 synth tunes, then a crash. Then zapping sounds when the words are zapped.
Availability: Seen on tapes from the time.
Scare Factor: Medium to NIGHTMARE, thanks in part to the dark music/sounds.
