Logo of the original PBS Kids channel (stylised as kidschannel), which first aired in 1999. The channel closed in 2006 to prepare for the launch of PBS Kids Sprout.
An alternate Dash variant, mostly used for promotional material. Notice that Dash has a dotted nose, has been shrunk, and is smaller than the text bubble, not to mention being slightly redrawn. The text inside the bubble and the "KIDS" text at the bottom both also increased in size.
Alternate Dot logo, same as the Dash variant but with Dot instead.

Print alternate Dot logo
On-screen bug until 2006. Notice the slightly redone logo to accommodate the small size.
Many times, Dot or Dash don't appear in the logo. Instead, the characters from a selected PBS Kids show replace the two. These character variations appeared on the website, and different versions appeared on TV idents.
