Logo: Above a valley with hills and green grass, we see the bronze words "VALLEYCREST PRODUCTIONS LTD." arranged somewhat like this:

------P R O D U C T I O N S---L T D .

zoom up to the top of the screen. "PRODUCTIONS LTD." is written on a bronze rectangle in black. The words shine.

Variant: Copyright stamps appear on Mike & Maty and Win Ben Stein's Money. The former has "© (YEAR) American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. All rights reserved" below while the latter has "© (YEAR) All rights reserved".

FX/SFX: The zoom-up and shine. Also, the moving clouds.

Music/Sounds: The closing theme of the show, original Millionaire airings used ABC's generic theme.

Availability: Rare. Appears on the U.S. (and possibly UK) version of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. This first appeared on a ABC Daytime show, Mike & Maty. This was also seen on the Comedy Central game show Win Ben Stein's Money, which was last seen in reruns on GSN from 2004-2006.

Editor's Note: None.

2nd Logo
(September 5, 2011-)

Logo: Same as before, but the valley is enhanced and looks more realistic, and the words are in gold/bronze, this time flipping upward
while zooming.<img align="right" alt="Valleycrest Productions (2011)" height="159" src="" title="Valleycrest Productions (2011)" width="284"/>

FX/SFX: Same as the 1st logo, but the words now flip upward.
