1st Logo (1983-June 1, 1996)

Scott Sternberg Prods (1992, Let's Go Back).jpeg

Logo: On a black background, we see an orange blocky pattern that morphs into a planet (ala the 1988 BBC Video logo) that later rotates to the left. The sun shines on the planet as it is seen rotating to the left. Superimposed, we see the text "scott sternberg productions".

Technique: The rotating of the planet, done in early CGI that's way ahead of its time.

Music/Sounds: Wind is heard first. As the planet rotates, spaceship sound effects are heard.

Availability: First seen on the 1983 Active Home Video VHS of The Best of Everything Goes. Was also seen on the game show Let's Go Back (which Scott himself hosted).

Legacy: This logo is quite ahead of its time, with the atmosphere, design, colors, and even the CGI used.

2nd Logo (September 13, 1997-July 1, 2011)

Scott Sternberg Prods (2010, The Fran Drescher Show).jpeg

Logo: Positioned against a blue sheet of corrugated metal, we see "scott sternberg" in a grungy font. The camera appears to be tilted at a big Scott Sternberg Productions (1997)angle, but then straightens itself as "productions" spirals away from the camera and takes its place under "scott sternberg". All of the text in this logo is warped in the shape of the metal.

Variant: Starting on season three of Catch 21, the logo appears in-credit. There is no animation for the logo.

Technique: Typical late 90s computer animation effects.

Music/Sounds: An electric guitar jingle with a "whoosh".

Availability: Can be seen on reruns of Catch 21 on Bounce TV and GSN (where it is affected by credit-crunching). It was also seen on That's the Question on GSN, Shootout on AMC, and Square Off on ANC. Originally spotted on Jep! on GSN and Wheel 2000 on CBS (the first known sighting of this logo) in 1997.

Legacy: Similarly to the last logo, the design of this logo makes this ahead of its time.

3rd Logo (September 8, 2014-March 3, 2016)

Scott Sternberg Prods (2014, Fix It & Finish It).jpeg

Logo: On a white background, multiple red squares zoom out and form a large red square with the letters "SSP" inside. "STERNBERG" in a big font is below, and under it is "SCOTT STERNBERG PRODUCTIONS". On the bottom of the screen is the URL "SSPRODS.COM".

Technique: The logo forming in 2D animation.

Music/Sounds: Glitching sounds.

Availability: Seen on Fix It & Finish It.

4th Logo (September 16, 2019- )

Scott Sternberg Prods (2019, Protection Court).jpeg

Logo: On a white background, we see the white letters "SSP" inside of a magenta square fading in with the text "SCOTT STERNBERG PRODUCTIONS" in black underneath the square.

Technique: Apart from the fading effects, none.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme.

Availability: It's currently seen on Protection Court in syndication.
