It's Not That Easy Being PBS

Published on .

Goodby Silverstein & Partners, along with Supply & Demand's Jeffery Plansker, offers a look at the benefits of children's television in spots for PBS. In the touching "Tall," a small girl sympathizes with a large and lanky fellow plane passenger with a well-known lesson learned from Kermit the Frog. In "Foreign Relations," a song about cooperation leads to a kind of world peace. And in "Barney," the big purple dinosaur literally lends a helping hand to an overwhelmed mother.
