Closing Logo Group

Background: LRI 486 TV Channel 8 of Mar del Plata began its television transmission on December 18, 1960, from the same place that today occupy its offices and studios, in Hipólito Yrigoyen. There, then, was a cinema, and Difusora Marplatense, the company that took over the undertaking to build a television station in this city, rented the facilities to Club Pueyrredón, with the right to carry out important reforms and adapt the place to the needs of the city's business.

You can see all of it's logo's here.

1st Logo

(1960-Early 60's)


2nd Logo

(Early 60's-70's?)

Logo: TBA (the number 8 is a la LV 80 Canal 10 Cordoba logo)

FX/SFX: None.

Cheesy Factor: The number 8 is too subjective to abstractness and -also,- bizarre. This

Music/Sounds: Possibly none.

Availability: We are unsure if there's a video of it elsewhere on the Internet.

Scare Factor: Low to medium. The abstractness of the number may surprise you the first time you see it, but it's a normal way to continue this signal in the 60's.

3rd Logo


Logo: TBA

FX/SFX: Major upgrade from the first logo. Otherwise, none.

Music/Sounds: Same as the previous logo.

Availability: Again, same as the previous logo.

Scare Factor: None to minimal. But this is calming compared to the next one..

4th Logo



Nicknames: "The City of Mar Del Plata" "Creepy Recording of a Clean Logo" "Rede Globo's Even More Creepier and Modern Brother" "The Eight City" "Nightmare from Mar del Plata" "20th Century Fox, But Not Hollywood" "The Corrupted Quality Logo" "Move 'em Out, Tevedos, You've Got Competition"

Logo: TBA


FX/SFX: The city and the searchlights zooming in and moving, The change from the background to the number (which then shines), the texts and the rest of the repeaters, which all was made with advanced Scanimation (early CGI look).

Cheesy Factor: And the worst of recordings + the TV-DX, which it's signal on the time was black and white, which makes the logo more scary. The logo itself seems sterile and incomodating, through.

Music/Sounds: An soothing piece of synth and a piano when we are in the city and the searchlights, which then transmit into reverse cymbal and then a news-like theme note with an deep Spanish announcer speaking about the signal and it's repeaters. The note then continues into a news fanfare. The quality is like some REALLY corrupted VHS tapes.

Availability: Seen before their programs or commercials from the time, but it was too difficult to find. A color recording from 1986 has been found a year ago.

Scare Factor:

The B&W corrupted one : Medium to high. The corrupted quality, The creepy-like recording and the black and white scheme of the logo may surprise anyone who isn't expecting it. The CGI appeared super fast and surprised you even more.

The color one : Low to medium. The variant is still the same as before, but no corrupted stuff.

Editor's Note : Who did the nicknames?
