On the eve of the Comcast-NBC Universal marriage, some people were perturbed by the party favors. Specifically, they were worried about what was missing — a peacock.

The 27,000 employees of NBC Universal were given a coffee table book, a notebook and 25 shares of Comcast stock on Thursday ahead of Friday’s expected close of the deal. Some of those employees noticed a new logo for NBC Universal, which lacks the company’s iconic rainbow peacock.

The new logo, it turns out, is chiefly for internal use. NBC viewers will still see the peacock. Comcast wanted to clean up the corporate NBC Universal logo, so it cut the NBC peacock and the Universal globe.
