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.

"Snipets!!!"
9 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you grew up in Chicagoland during the '70s, watching afternoon TV, you probably remember the sound of a bunch of kids shouting "Snipets!!!" which preceded every one of these shorts. These would show in between TV programs on WFLD-TV 32, then owned by Field Communications, the producers of "Snipets." "Snipets," in my memory anyway, ran in tandem with the similar kids shorts called "The Most Important Person." "Snipets," though, were a little more nuts-and-bolts in terms of their approach to material. The one I remember most was a guy teaching how to make a toy called a "Come Back Here!" A "Come Back Here" was a coffee can one rigged with rubber bands and washers in such a way that when you rolled it away from you, it would come rolling back. I can still hear the guy saying "Come back here!"

The other memorable thing about "Snipets" is they often utilized claymation of the same type as "Davey & Goliath," in fact, it had to be the same animator behind both because the kids in "Snipets" looked very similar to Davey and Co. in facial construction. A typical Snipets story would be a kid wanting to play basketball with some other kids, and feeling ignored, then just asking if he can play and being welcomed aboard.

Anybody else remember any of these?
