Snipets was a series of 30-second to 1 minute long short films for children which were produced by Kaiser Broadcasting, and later Field Communications. They ran on Kaiser/Field TV stations and were also syndicated to additional stations in the U.S.
One of the most memorable Snipets was the "Come Back Here Can", which showed kids how they could take a coffee can and a rubber band and create a toy that would roll back to them when pushed.
Approximately 100 Snipets were produced between 1972 and 1978. They aired until approximately sometime in 1982 on Field Communications Stations, and held on for a few more years in sporadic showings on other non-Field Stations.
A common misspelling of these shorts is "Snippets".
