After breaking his neighbor's window with a home run baseball, Jot learns a lesson about doing the right thing. Created by Ruth Byers and Ted Perry for the Southern Baptists Radio and Television Commission, JOT was the Baptists' answer to the Lutheran-produced, "Davey and Goliath." The animated series first aired on Dallas network WFAA-TV's Sunday children's program "Peppermint Place," and was later picked up by "The Children's Hour" on WBAP-TV (now KXAS-TV) in Fort Worth. The show was eventually translated into 19 languages and syndicated world-wide. Using a mod styling that at times gets downright psychedelic, each four and one-half minute episode teaches young children bible verses and moral lessons. A total of 30 episodes were released between 1965 - 1981. For a brief time in 2009, Jot reappeared as the official mascot of FamilyNet Television, but in late 2009 his image was removed from the network's website.
