Connecticut Public Television is the PBS station for the state of Connecticut, which produced the show Barney and Friends, along with other HIT Entertainment programs, from 1992 until 2007. In 2008, HIT Entertainment solely produced the show until its original conclusion in 2010. 

Although CPTV no longer produced any more episodes, the company had partial financial control over the franchise until 2015. 

Logos and sequences


The multi-colored C's merge together including the colors like Dandelion, Caribbean Green, Sunset orange, Lime Yellow, Cornflower Blue, Magenta, Hot Pink, Purple Pizzazz, Light Purple, Peach, and Lavender. Once that happens, then the sparks particles will explode from the dot above the C and they will turn red. Alternatively, a longer variant is sometimes in place after the credits where the logo animates in a slower speed with an extreme closeup view of a colored C that zooms out while the C's orbit and spin and the disco balls fly around along with one C that gradually rotates on it's way to it's position, then the "C" flies in from the left and makes a "U" turn rotating to the other C's. Prior to the explosion after they come together, the logo shines in multiple colors and then pans diagonally to the left during the explosion and remains on-screen longer which then it cuts to black instead of fading out onto it's transition to the funding. On certain prints of the full logo including this one that was used as a station ID, the byline displaying these channels:

24 WEDH Hartford, 49 WEDW Bridgeport, 53 WEDN Norwich, and 65 WEDY New Haven.

Sometimes, this variant is in warp speed and with different disco ball animation.


For the 2004 logo, the logo is stylized with specular highlights (that is different from the one used for the 1993 version including the full length version) with certain show clips keyed onto the C. The text just has the acronym next to the C and "Connecticut" is below it with the gradient line almost at the bottom of the screen.


This logo starts at the closeup look of the glass ball with bubbles as the camera orbits around with C's and dots revealed on zooming from the ball. The objects merged together with a flare ping and the circles expand with the red gradient and words fading in one by one. After that, the byline of channels (without the numbers from the long version of the 1993 logo this time) appears below the company text. The music played on this logo is a orchestrated version of the 1993 jingle.


On the recent logo, the logo wipes in from the bottom left to the top right while zooming in towards the viewer and stops afterwards.
