Nickname: "Come On Along"

Logo: On a black background, an orange star comes down from the top of the screen which makes the word "COME" appear. Then another one comes down which makes the word "ON" appear. One more comes down which makes the word "ALONG" appear. During all this, the slogan rotates to the right. Then a red streak comes down which reads out "ABC" and hits the three O's. When the letters hit the O's, a burst of stars form a blue neon background where the circle of the ABC logo in black with red emitting from the bottom of the circle fades in while the ABC text comes down and lands on the circle.

Variants:

  • There's a variant where the emitting red at the bottom of the circle is blue. It's unknown if this variant is real.
  • There's a version where the logo is blank. This was used for closed circuit broadcasts so local stations could their logos in.
  • There is a version where the entire logo is still. This was used for closed circuit broadcasts and station sign-offs.
  • A version was made for Nine Network in Australia. In this version, after the word "ALONG" appears, the entire logo freezes halfway through. The words slide away after a few seconds and the gold Nine Network logo comes in on a space background.
