PBS Kids Idents
A generic ident from the network.
A generic ident from the network.
Status Partially Found

September 6 1999, was the day 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 downloaded them. The only remains of a few idents left are screenshots.

I dont think a lot of these exist. There couldn't be any PTV-era shows (except for Wishbone) that were branded for PBS kids in the 2000s. And some of these shows (Wordworld, Mama Mirabelle, etc) are past the old Dash and Dot era.

And Peep was on TLC at the time. It wasn't on PBS until 2007, when this era ended.

I know The Puzzle Place got one of the schedule bumpers from the 2000s that was animated by Lee Hunt and shows clips of the show in front of a background. Same with Kratts Creatures and other shows from the 90s and early 00s.
