Netflix's Signature "Ta-Dum" Sound Was Almost . . . a Goat's Bleat

A Netflix exec says that instead of the "TA-DUM" sound over their logo, they almost went with a GOAT'S BLEAT.  He says, "It was funny, I thought it was quirky, and it was our version of [MGM's> Leo The Lion." 

The goat sound was one of the FINALISTS, so it wasn't just something goofy that they thought of early on.

Sadly, there's no AUDIO of the bleat in question, but the interviewer says HE heard it, and he described it as "very goat-y."  He says that it was something like the current "ta-dum," and then it ended with the goat noise.
