Nice! The NBC promo for its "living color" was very memorable. The ABC and CBS less so, but still quite interesting. In my family we didn't have color tv until 1969, but of course many shows were in color well before that. For those who had color in the earlier part of the decade it must have been strange to go back and forth, depending on the program.

Thank you for posting these. Interesting to see what television was like back when broadcasting in color was something special. I remember during my youth in the 80s, broadcasting in stereo was a big deal, as all the networks had various graphics indicating such during that time. NBC's with the blue peacock logo with the headphones dropping over it and the words "In Stereo Where Available" I recall vividly during the openings to shows like Valerie, The Golden Girls, Alf, Family Ties, and Our House.

The NBC "Proud as a Peacock" promo must've aired just before they started using the "Be There" tagline. I remember that one very well from the early-mid 80s.

I liked this as a child. Leave it to Disney to showcase the then-burgeoning color TV industry:
