NBC logo 1954

On January 1, 1954, a xylophone and mallet was shown with a three tone "G E C" tone, making it a note xylophone. As seen in the Video section. The keys refer to the General Electric Company (G, E, C).

1956–1975

NBC Peacock 1956

On May 22, 1956, NBC started using a logo for their color programming. The original peacock is a lucky find today. In 1962, they changed the logo. On a kaleidoscopic background, a majestic tune plays, as the NBC peacock fans its feathers and then turns into the logo from before.

1959-1975

NBC snake logo 1959.svg

The chimes were rendered obsolete by 1960 as a new logo, dubbed the "NBC snake", arrived. There are some variants of it but the most famous is the one where it draws itself.

1975-1986

NBC logo 1975

This short-lived abstract N logo was first unveiled on October 1975 and premiered on-air January 1, 1976. Nicknamed the "Trapezoid N".  In 1976, a lawsuit was issued by a public television broadcaster in Nebraska named Nebraska Educational Telecommunications for potential copyright issues. The new NBC logo was virtually identical to the Nebraska ETV Network logo, except for the blue coloring in the right trapezoid of the NBC logo. An out-of-court settlement was reached in which NBC forced Nebraska ETV to hand over $800,000 worth of new equipment, including a color mobile unit. It also paid Nebraska ETV $55,000 to cover the cost of designing and implementing a new logo. In return, NBC was allowed to keep the "N" logo.

1979–1986

NBC 1979 logo

This is shown with or without the stylized "N"; although the version without the "N" was rarely seen after 1980. The network had, by this time, decided to take a new approach in its programming to introduce the slogan, "NBC - Proud As A Peacock!". Nicknamed the "Proud N".

1986–present

NBC logo

A new logo, created by Chermayeff & Geismar, was finally launched on May 12, 1986. Chermayeff & Geismar are also responsible for the logos of PBS, Chase Manhattan Bank, Screen Gems Television, and others. This remains use as the on-screen bug.
