This is Whoopi Goldberg's vanity card.

1st Logo (September 14, 1992-February 19, 2022)

Visuals: There is a black-and-white caricature of Whoopi Goldberg inside a CGI black marble frame. Not much is drawn of her except her head/face, a curved line going downwards from the back of her neck (which is apparently supposed to signify her shoulder) and her hand, which is holding a pair of sunglasses; one of the arms is in Whoopi's mouth. In the bottom left-hand corner of the caricature is the artist's signature. In the bottom right-hand corner is the company name set in Revue, aligned like this:


Very often, there is also copyright information crediting the artist and the art gallery the caricature belongs to chyroned right under it.

Trivia: The Whoopi Goldberg caricature is made by Broadway caricature artist Al Hirschfeld (his signature is on the bottom-left of the picture, and he is mentioned in the copyright information), and it belongs to Margo Feiden Galleries Ltd. in New York (the name of the art gallery is also seen in the copyright information).


  • From 1992-93 and starting again in 2015, the words and copyright notice, which is now different and in Revue, slides up.
  • The 2015 variant has "ONE HOE" instead of "ONE HO", and the logo is now in widescreen and HD.

Technique: A still, digital graphic. 2D computer animation for the 1992-93 and 2015 variant.

Audio: A 4-note house tune with horns, starting in 1999. Otherwise, the end theme plays over or none.

Audio Variants:

  • There is an extended version of the 1999 theme that has a brief bass/drum build-up before the horn theme starts.
  • Shows on networks like NBC use their generic music.


  • First seen on The Whoopi Goldberg Show, a syndicated talk show hosted by Whoopi that ran during the 1992-93 television season.
  • This can be seen on the first four seasons of the 1998 Hollywood Squares revival when last seen on GSN and on Strong Medicine. It also appeared on NBC's short-lived sitcom Whoopi and the TV movie Call Me Claus.
  • The logo has been revived on According to Alex and Strut.
