1st Logo (1963-1970)

Bandicam 2023-09-06 20-03-17-227

Logo: On a black background, we see an emblem with a big M with TV under the M inside the emblem zoom's in. Then some "rays" burst from the emblem, causing the text "Malwi TV" to from in.

Technique: 2D animation.

Cheesy Factor: There are many things wrong with this logo. First of, the emblem looks more like a outlined penny or a coin. Second, the rays doesn't look like ray's, they look more like lines zooming in at us. Third, they misspelled "Malawi" as "Malwi". And fourth and finally, the music doesn't fit for this logo.

Music/Sounds: A traditional Malawian sounding theme, then followed by an announcer (sounding more like server in OSO 5) saying in chewa "This is Malawi Television". the music that is playing doesn't fit for this logo due to it's cheesy animation.

Availability: Long gone extinct.

Scare Factor: Low to high. The creepy looking emblem, the announcer and music can surely give people the jumping jepies, and the animation can also do the same thing. Other's may not be affected by this.

2nd Logo (1970-1976)

Bandicam 2023-09-06 20-40-54-440

Logo: TBA.

Technique: 2D Animation.

Cheesy Factor: The outline drawing of Malawi now looks tacky nowadays, and the formations of the texts are also outdated. But it's a good thing that they didn't misspelled the "Malawi" text like before.

Music/Sounds: A Congo-like theme, followed by the same announcer from before.

Availability: Extinct.

Scare Factor: Medium, due to the animation and the announcer. But it's tamer then the last one.

Bandicam 2023-09-06 21-01-21-776
