80's (?) fat font?

Does anyone know the name of this font?

Hi there, I'm trying to identify these Bold fonts, which were used quite a bit during the late 80s and 90s for TV...

Please see File attachments, they appear to have a stroke added to the type also....

Hi there,
I'm hoping you can identify this font used on the Ninja Turtle VHS tape covers from the late 80's.
It's pretty, dare I say, "radical"

Thank you!

I am looking for the font used on the 1980's TV show Morning Stretch, which was an exercise workout TV show that basically aired in the morning.

This is most likely some form of Helvetica, but i can't seem to find any information on it. It looks more or less like a cross between Helvetica Neue + Railway Alphabet + Akzidenz Grotesk.. I know it was used quite extensively across the Norwegian railway network in the 80's, and i can recall seeing it in print in magazines from the same decade.

Most people would probably pass it for a regular Helvetica cut, but i know it isn't (just have a look at the lower case 'a' and 's').. I've seen numbering as well, though i can't find any examples; all i know is that the numbers look even more like Akzidenz, though not quite..

I reckon it looks perfect for signage, so I would really like to know if it exists in digital form. Any help would be appreciated :)
