Hallmark Cards: "Report Card" ( Leo Burnett USA; Pytka Productions; :120). There's a danger of sugar-shock in this heart-tugger, but what else would you expect from Hallmark? Mother discovers a thank-you card from teacher in her little boy's school bag. She has to coax the reason out of him (he's more concerned with finding his toys); seems he's befriended an ailing classmate who can't go out and play at recess. "I like him; no big deal," he says. Excellent acting job by young Michael Angarano.
Milwaukee County Transit System: "This Is Nick" (Hughes, Ruch & Murphy; Purple Onion; :30). Nick is a guy who has to attend a group-therapy session because he wants to ride the bus but fears the unknown. A motherly session leader in an MCTS uniform calms his fears.
