On a blue background, the words "A Viacom Presentation" zoom in from the center of the screen. Suddenly, a V zooms in and then it cuts (for the filmed variant) or fades (for the videotaped variant) and ends.
- This logo's scare factor is medium to nightmare for the filmed variant and medium to high for the videotaped variant.
- The logo ran from 1976-1986.
- The 3rd-7th Viacom logos also have the V, but this is the 2nd logo.
- There is also a fake variant of the videotaped logo with the filmed music.
