(February 5, 1990-May 23, 2003)

Nickname: "The Shopping Cart"

Logo: On the closing credits, we see "AL" on top, with a box and a shopping cart (like the shopping cart on the 1993-2003 Supermarket Sweep logo), "HOWARD" appears under "AL", and "PRODUCTIONS" (in a thinner font) appears below "HOWARD". The copyright notice appeared below a second after the logo appeared. It appeared like this:

(C) (year in roman numerals) AL HOWARD PRODUCTIONS

The "AL" and "HOWARD" are in a custom font and "PRODUCTIONS" is in an art deco font. In the early years, the logo was slightly higher, and there was no copyright info.

FX/SFX: The copyright notice appearing, if that counts.

Music/Sounds: The ending theme of Supermarket Sweep plays as well as "This is Johnny Gilbert/Randy West speaking for Supermarket Sweep. Supermarket Sweep has been an Al Howard Production".

Music/Sounds Variant: Sometimes, the "speaking" part of Johnny's/Randy's signoff wasn't said, thereby rendering it as "This is Johnny Gilbert/Randy West for Supermarket Sweep," with Al Howard credited as normal.

Availability: Only seen on Supermarket Sweep, which currently reruns on Buzzr. Also seen on episodes of said show on Amazon Prime Video.
