Nickname: "Flashing

Logo: On a black background, a red flash of light appears revealing the first "R". Then a second red flash appears, revealing the second "R". Then a third flash appears revealing the "P". In the first "R" we see a fountain pen. In the second "R" there's a paintbrush in the middle of it. And in the "P" we see what appears to be a film reel. When the flashing is done, the text "A RICK REINERT PRODUCTION" fades in below it. Then, the film reel in the "P" spins around until the logo fades to black.

Some specials superimposed this logo, which is slightly transparent. Recently a filmed variation (with the outro theme quite distorted from deterioration) was found, appearing on a 16mm print of The Bollo Caper.

FX/SFX: The flashing of the letters, the filmreel spinning.

Music/Sounds: Only the outro of whatever show Rick produced; otherwise silence.

Extremely rare. It only appeared on ABC Weekend Specials produced by Reinert, such as The Bollo Caper and the Cap'n O.G. Readmore specials. However some have been released on video (with this logo intact), like the Sony Wonder release of Precious Moments: Who's Who At The Zoo.

Scare Factor:
Low. It might scare some people because of the red flashing letters, sometimes with the silence, but it isn't enough to make you have nightmares.
