Background: KOCE-TV is the PBS affiliate located Huntington Beach, California. It became the primary PBS affiliate for Los Angeles after KCET disaffiliated with PBS and became an independent public television station on January 1, 2011.
1st Logo (1983-1997)
KOCE-TV (1983-1997)KOCE National ID (1980s) - Channel 50
Logo: On a black/blue gradient background, we see "KOCE", in Aero Extended Solid font. "PRESENTS", in the same font, but outlined (kinda like the "3" "2" "1" "GO" text you see in Metropolis Street Racer before the race starts) quickly fades in below.
Variant: Another version of this logo has the "KOCE" text(in the same font as above mentioned) zoom away from the viewer, and then a huge flash appears as it turns out to be a giant "50"(in the same font as "KOCE"). Then, the text "Orange County" sketches itself under the "KOCE" and the "50".
FX/SFX: Just the appearance of the logo and "PRESENTS" fading in.
Cheesy Factor: They could've used better animation than that. Also, without the city of license appearing on screen, how are people outside of Huntington Beach, California going to know where the station's from?
Music/Sounds: An ascending wind sound, with an electronic synth note, followed by an additional synth note that is cut off at the end. On the variant, it has a whoosh sound, followed by a short synth tune, with bells heard in the background.
Availability: Used on KOCE-produced programming at the time.
Scare Factor: Medium; due to the music and environment.
2nd Logo (1997-2004)
Logo: On a black background, we see "KOCE", this time in Arial font, and all lower-case letters, colored gold. It appears to be in a tilted position, but it straightens itself out quickly, as a boomerang-shaped crest flies from left to right. "Presentation", colored white, and all upper-case letters, drops down a bit, then zooms in quickly.
FX/SFX: The animation's simple, but it's better than the previous logo.
Music/Sounds: A synthesized lute jingle.
Availability: Rare. Can be found at the end of Wai Lana Yoga on select PBS stations.
Scare Factor: Low. The animation and music are much better this time.
