It flipped from black and white to color on the opening of Bonanza. It was not the first color broadcast, but the one that really caught on and sold millions of RCA color TV sets.

It's too bad this montage does include the very first NBC Color Peacock. It looked different and there was a different theme song.

One of my earliest recollections was watching the Kraft Music Hall (featuring Perry Como) at some family friends' house, circa 1956.
They had a early color set ( the host was a Techtronix engineer) and I distinctly remember the crowded living room gasping in amazement at the NBC peacock!

Wasn't the original copy something like, "Brought in living color, pioneered and developed by RCA, on NBC"? RCA, of course, owned NBC at the time.

Sunday night at my Uncle's house... Bonanza & Disney...and while the TV set CONSOLE took up most of the wall, the screen was probably 19 " or so.
I think a new color TV set back then cost about 1/10 the price of a new 3 Br house and about the same as a new car.
