1st Logo (1991-2003)[]

Te mangai paho-0

Nicknames: "The Little Girl", "Toi tu Te Reo"

Logo: On a turquoise/blue sky background with orange grass is a closeup of a little girl with blonde hair and a black Maori suit as no footwear. It then fades in to where the camera zooms out a little to reveal a golden C with a dot inside it and three swirly lines that rise from the top next to her. The words Te Māngai Pāho in a turquoise patterned font with lines on top of the First a in Māngai and the a in Pāho fade in along with the Māori Broadcasting Funding Agency information on the bottom. Her black suit somehow shakes during the C's animation.

FX/SFX: The girl, the zooming, the logo forming as well as the words appearing.

Music/Sounds: New Zealand-themed Flute music, complete the girl announcing "Nā Te Māngai Pāho te puiti au" followed by a female chorus shouting "Toi tu Te Reo" in some Maori-ish language.

Availability: Uncommon. Seen on Mataku, My Kainga My Castle and Dead Certs, as well as many early bulletins of Waka Huia and Te Karere and many other things made by TMP during that era.

Te mangai paho

Logo: We see the logo from before zooming from the state of New Zealand through the earth and some planets (which form the solar system), an explosion, which is followed by a man who speaks foreign language (Maori). The god then turns smaller and smaller which whom an universe, which the god blows from it's hands, the company name, and the Maori Broadcast Funding Agency information appear.
