October 11, 1993 - September 5, 1999
PBS Kids' first logo was based on PBS' 3rd logo from 1984, This logo gave a nickname "PBS P-Pals" It consists of three stylized P profiles, depicted as literally living things, complete with appendages, drawn as a cartoon, set on a white background. The profiles are in different colors and patterns that change throughout the ident and eventually stop on blue, orange, and green, respectively. The profiles dance and sing "This is P-B-S! Woo-hoo-hoo!,", then stop when the 1993 Ready To Learn dog walks by the lower portion of the screen and barks. (he holds a balloon saying E/I in the re-designed one) At the same time, the third profile ad libs and his red hat flies off of his head for a moment, then drops back on his head. The "PBS" text appears in black to the lower left to the profiles.
In September 1999, PBS modified their logo completely. PBS Kids' mascots, Dash and Dot, are introduced. This logo was designed by Primal Screen with Network ID's being produced by Primal Screen

TV Shows and Kid LogosMany times, Dash or Dot do not appear in the logo. Instead the characters from a random PBS Kids show replace the two.
