1st Logo

Punch

(1979-1981)

Logo: On a black background, the word "Punch" is seen in a 50's-style font surrounded by various interlocked rectangular lines, connected to the first and last letters of the word. Below it has the words "La carabina de Ambrosio" in cursive which translates to "The carabine of Ambrosio" from Spanish.

FX/SFX: None.

Music/Sounds: A dark humming sound, followed by a deep explosion sound and a triangle-wave tone. All of it played at a quite loud volume.

Availability: Extinct.

Legacy: The dark sounds, text being on a black background, and the lack of animation will scare some. The sounds on this logo can also be found as apocalyptic-sounding, or some people may even be reminded of lo-fi war recordings. It can get worse if the logo is played in a dark room, and the very loud sounds could also remind people about the 2nd 3-G Home Video logo.

2nd Logo

(198?-1986)

TBA.

3rd Logo

Punch-0

(1986-1990)

Logo: On a blue/gray gradient background, we see a sphere. Some colored stripes go to the sphere and fill it up. Stars then appear in order of the music. After that, the stripes move to give space to the zooming word "PUNCH". A outlined/rounded rectangle then starts drawing. The word then shines.

Variant: There exists a short version.

FX/SFX: Everything.

Music/Sounds: A ascending synth tune, followed by a 6-note bell tune when the stars appear, then an announcer saying: "Punch presento el anterior programa". Some funky music plays after.

Music/Sounds Variant: The short version of the logo has a timpani roll when the announcer speaks.

Availability: TBA. See YouTube.

Legacy: TBA.

4th Logo

(1990-1999)

Punch-1

4th Logo

(1990-2000)

Logo: There's a gray surface with the words "PUNCH" engraved on it. 3D colored mid-circles appear zooming out and stop, and then the word "PUNCH" appears on the center by a moving rectangle, and a outlined/rounded rectangle (not like the previous logo) zooms out. The background then darkens.

FX/SFX/Cheesy Factor: CGI animation.

Music/Sounds: An 80s synthpop like arpeggio, followed by a short majestic brass fanfare with an announcer saying "Punch presenta el siguiente programa".

Availability: TBA.

Legacy: Punch's first and only CGI-animated logo, pretty dated-looking for today however.
