USA never used SCART. Went straight from UHF antenna to component. NES and SNES shipped with RF cables - the earliest with component was the N64.

SNES has RGB output, all you even needed was a cheap cable.

I wonder why there was no rgb inputs in US TVs, this is the most natural 240p/480i signal you can think about, goes almost straight from video chip to CRT electron gun.
