The "News Flash" logo in the Sesame Street News title card changed quite a few times over the years. But for the most part all that changed was the colors on the logo. Size may have changed a few times, though I'm unsure. But why did the colors change? I can see why the original pink logo changed (why would they use pink as a color for a news logo?), and the mid-1980s logo (with a bit of blue and a flashing title card) does look a bit dated somehow... But the logos don't seem that dated. I don't see what was wrong with the black and white logo. It's also strange that there's two versions of the most commonly-seen logo: One with all the stars colored in, and one where some of the stars aren't colored in. According to Muppet Wiki the version without all the stars began in the early 1980s, then the one with the blue colors was added, and then the most common version (similar to the early 1980s one, but with all the stars colored in) was introduced... But I find it odd that they'd replace one logo and then replace it with one that looks very similar to the one it replaced. Also, the late-1980s logo replaced the earlier logos when the earlier ones were rebroadcast since the late-1980s. Does anybody know if this version of the logo was the only one to replace previous ones? Because I've seen many news clips online, whether uploaded by fans or Sesame Workshop, and some feature the original logos, and others include the late-1980s logo on earlier segments, but I haven't seen any segments that are obviously from the early 1970s with the black and white logo or the mid-1980s logo, nor have I seen any 1970s segments with the mid-1980s logos attached. I think it's obvious that the original logo was only on the segments where Kermit's hat is a darker brown color, and every copy of those segments I've seen begin with either the original logo or the late-1980s logo.
