In September 1999, Dot and Dash were introduced. Because of the rebrand of PTV Park into PBS Kids, they decided to make idents where instead of Dot and Dash, there was a character from the show it was from. A big amount of these are lost. Most of the lost ones were on YouTube until 2013 - 2014. Unfortunately, nobody download them. The only remains of a few idents left are screenshots.
