The Laramie Peacock

This is the Laramie Peacock. Those of you of a certain age have probably seen it 1000 times. It was used to introduce color programs on NBC.

It’s called the “Laramie Peacock” because the first time it was shown was right before the tv western Laramie. It was the first time the peacock fanned out with the soft woodwind music played in the background. I just thought it was funny that of all the names it could have been called, it’s named after the first show that it lead into.

The Laramie Peacock ran from 1962 to 1975.

nbcIt sure beats this “N” that was used from 1976 to 1979.
