Storyline

"Snipets" were a unique series of one-minute instructional shorts designed for use within general entertainment programs for children. Each sixty-second segment emphasized a positive human value such as love, trust, respect and team play, or demonstrated imaginative creativity with unimaginable materials such as weeds, toothpicks, and dried beans. Enhanced by many different production techniques, these short vignettes packed maximum teaching into one-minute while at the same time, providing attention-holding entertainment.

Lesson Learned
12 April 2009 | by (Sunshine State) – See all my reviews

The resulting commercials of PSA regulations did not excite me as a kid, and Snipets (SIC) was, at best an annoying interruption to my much loved cartoon time, but I do believe that, like the era's busing laws, Snipets DID make a difference.

Specifically, I remember a story that ended with a dastardly fellow trying to discourage kids from trying their best, telling them that his name is A. D. Word, and the "D" is for "discouraging".

I love the message and wish that we had this sort of PSA, today. I personally think that the imagination that television once "engendered" has been lost in the attempts to secure viewership, through shock and vulgarity.
