Answer #4

A PBS exectuive has been quoted as saying "The kids shut up for thirty minutes, and it works out good."

Fact. A Connecticut Public Television Executive (and grandfather!) said this of the show. Incidentally, this quote came to be known through the Lyons Corporation's Texas Spokesperson. Could it be that those in the Lyons Corp. are PROUD that their show shuts kids up and is used as a babysitter? It sure seems that way.
