The cassette versions of US Gold's games had a very characteristic loading screen (loading games from cassette usually took several minutes): the computer would play synthesized renderings of The Star-Spangled Banner, Yankee Doodle, and Dixie's Land repeatedly, in that order, until the loading of the game finished and gameplay could commence. While playing the music the screen would display a countdown of the remaining number of "blocks" to be loaded, along with a scrolling line of text advertising other US Gold games, existing as well as upcoming ones.
