CTW (known as Children's Television Workshop, now called Sesame Workshop) is a TV logo that began in late 60s.
There are many logos for this one.
CTW Plaque(1968-1970) Edit
We start off with a man that holds a plaque that says "CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP".*
*-There are other variations with other characters from Sesame Street
CTW Cloud (Electric Company custom logo, 1970-1978) Edit
This one has many versions. I'll just cover them up in this chart.
|Version Number||Description||Scare Factor (%)|
|1||A cloud surrounded by a plaque that shows in the center "THE CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP". Accompanied by a voiceover that says "The Electric Company gains its power from the Children's Television Workshop". Don't forget the funky music.||1.5%
|2||The text is coloured gold and the text transition is zapped by four lightnings.||1.5%
|3||This version has the border disappearing and the text zooming out.||1.5%
Snake (1978) Edit
This logo has 2 different editions:
|Edition Number||Description||Scare Factor(%)|
|1||A pink crosshair appears. This makes the center sections of letters C and T. After that happens, the top section of the letter W appears. After the letters are created, a green text that pops up near the T. It says: "CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP". The music is weird: the same tone gets repeated a lot of times, but with effects that affect the music only.||17.5%
|2||Same thing happens, but this was only shown at Christmas. It also has a different music. The CTW is orange, and the text "CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP" are blue.||17.5%
4th Logo Edit
Again, this logo has 2 versions.
|Edition Name/Number||Description||Scare Factor(%)|
|1 (Robot Edition)||A spark comes out of nowhere. After the spark goes all the way to the left, the word "CHILDREN'S" appear. The spark does it two more times for the words "TELEVISION" and "WORKSHOP". After then, A star comes out of nowhere and disappears shortly aster.||24.5%
|2 (Original)||Same thing goes for here, exceptions are: the music, which is not robot themed anymore.||24.5%
5th Logo Edit
A semicircle appears. But before that, the letters C,T and W jump before they "merge" into it. After then the words "CHILDREN'S TELEVISION WORKSHOP" appear.
Sesame Workshop (2000-present) Edit
CTW officially changed its name to Sesame Workshop in 2000.
1st Logo (2000-2003) Edit
This logo is just a house with blue roof and green walls on a white background.
A star is inside, pops out of the roof. This causes the words "sesame workshop" to gain their colour.
2nd Logo (2003-2006) Edit
Same goes for here, except that the house is blue with red roof.
3rd logo (2006-2008) Edit
The old house design again, but without "star needed to color text".
4th Logo (2008-present) Edit
No house at all. Instead, there is a orange background that has the word "sesame". When all the characters turn into letters to make the word "workshop", Elmo appears standing on the letters O and P.
