1981–2009

MTV (1981)

From its launch on August 1, 1981 until March 18, 2009, the "Music Television" caption was included underneath the logo. Many fans recognize this logo because of its unique design that allows it to become anything.

2009–present

MTV (2010)

Since 2008 on the premiere of FNMTV, MTV had showed a revised and chopped down version of its original 1981 logo during most of its on-air programming. This became MTV's official logo on March 18, 2009, when it first debuted on MTV's website. The "Music Television" tagline was eliminated to reflect the network's dramatic decrease in music-related programming, although it started to shift its focus back to music on April 2016. This has also cut off the excess right of the letter "V", like the bottom of the "M".
