Remember when MTV played music videos? Seems like forever ago. Well, here is a little something to jog your memories. MTV's first creative director Fred Seibert along with co-founder/producer Alan Goodman were the team that developed the MTV brand. They are responsible for the original logo and all those crazy animated network IDs that appeared at the top of the hour and between songs.
This edition of 'GIFs That Keep On Giving' includes some MTV ID images I personally created from a 1981-83 montage video along with a few I found on Tumblr.
