Canal 2/Tevedos/Teledos

1st Logo (1980-1983)


Nicknames: "The Conjoined 2s", "The Argentinian Holy Grail"

Logo: Several squares pop up on a black background to reveal a white background with a strange looking shape. This shape is actually 2 conjoined 2s made of 3 stripes, and it starts to slowly zoom in. It then stops, taking up almost the entire screen, and a Scanimated star outline flashes and expands over the logo, coloring it to blue/red/green. The text "LS 86 Canal 2/La Plata/Argentina" then wipes in below in Century Gothic.

FX/SFX: The logo appearing, the shape zooming in and colorizing, the text wiping in. Scanimation is used here.

Music/Sounds: Several beeps can be heard throughout the logo, with an female announcer also playing throughout the logo.

Availability: Extinct.

Editor's Note: None.


2nd Logo (1983-1986)


Nicknames: "The Digital 2", "The Enigma 2"

Logo: On a black background, a blue line is drawn on the left side of the screen and an abstract city-scape emerges from it, with the windows represented by three orange lines then fly in under the city then flash at a point, in which a orange circle representing the sun rises from it. After it rises up, a piece of an digital 2 flies out of the flash and cut into place in sync with the music. As the last piece flies into place, it glows bright orange and the text "canal" flashes in the top part of the 2, which for some reason disappears. After it disappears, the text "LS 86 TV canal 2 - La Plata - Argentina" appears below the city, sandwiched between 2 two lines.

FX/SFX: The city and sun forming, the flying pieces, the flash.

Music/Sounds: It begins with an rising synth, similar to an UFO sound. It then suddenly changes into a bass rock tune, with snippets played during the 2 forming, before leading to a short sting. An announcer (either an deep-pitched male or an female that sounds robotic) then says the broadcasting info for the channel, then ends with one final sting.

Availability: There is a very slim chance that this can be found on VHS tapes showing commercials from the time period.

Editor's Note: None.


3rd Logo (1986-1988)


Nicknames: "The Filmstrips"

Logo: We see pink filmstrips with chromed numbers, in a rounded font, atop a blue background (in the filmstrip). The background is a dim grayish-green. The numbers flash as they are being shown (starting from 6 even though numbers up to 9 are shown). The camera zooms in specifically on the "2", of which is in a circle like all the other numbers. Then. "TELE DOS" with a 2 next to it in a bold blue font on an orange-yellow gradient background zoom out. "El canal de las noticias" is on the bottom in black. Station info is seen at the bottom.

Variant: An abridged version existed, where the logo starts at the 2, but the zoom out is much earlier.

FX/SFX: The filmstrips appearing, the numbers shining, and the zoom-out.

Music/Sounds: It begins with a typical 80s sounder, with an ethereal synth throughout the logo. Ends in a similar fashion in which it begins. An announcer can also be heard.

Availability: Same as before.

Editor's Note: None.


4th Logo (1988-1989)

Note: This ID can be seen here.

Nicknames: "The Flying Saucer", "The UFO"

Logo: On a space, a blue flying saucer is flying through it. Once it is near the corner of the screen, the animation freezes. A "2" is shot from the lower part of the flying saucer, then the number dissapears and the word "TELEDOS" slides from below. A white cloud appear in the other corner, where appear the channel indicator/name and later other stations. Once all the stations are presented, the flying saucer flies again, this time in reverse and out of the screen.

Variant: Theres a shortened version in which is only presented the main channel .

FX/SFX: 3D animation.

5th Logo (1989-1991)


Nicknames: "Back to the Tevedos", "The Rainbow 2", "The Native American 2"

Logo: On a black background, a shiny golden 2 with an rainbow-colored arc (resembling that of an Indian headdress) flies in from the bottom of the screen, rotating into place as it does. The 2 then zooms out as "TEVEDOS" in a Western-like font drops in from the top of the screen and flips into place, as station info appears below. As the music ends, the 2 warps around as the text zooms away from the screen as the logo becomes normal.

FX/SFX: Simple animation.

Music/Sounds: The Back To The Future theme, along with either an male or female announcer.

Availability: Same as before.

6th Logo (1991-1993)


Nicknames: "Cylinders of the Americas", "The Birth of America TV"

Logo: On a chrome blue floor with an cloudy sky, several medal cylinders rise out of the ground as the camera steers to the right. It then steers to the left twice as the cylinders rise up, before flying away from them, revealing they formed a map of the Americas. An parallelogram made of an red and green triangles flies up and splits up as 2 rectangles from a "T", creating an abstract "ATV". The map then stops at an angle as a blue rectangle spins into place below the logo. "AMERICA" flies in to the left side while "TE VE" flies in to the right. The logo shines as station info appears in the bottom right corner. All of the logo can be seen at an angle.

Variant: A short version with the logo on a black background exists.

As it reaches the top of the skyscraper, offices can be seen through the windows before resting among the top, where a large silver ring rests on top as well as the glowing blue text "AMERICA". The ring then revolves with other rings before fusing back into one ring, as 2 streaks swoop around and form the 2 from before.
