Jot, Ruth Byers, 1965

Strange, stylish Christian cartoon, in which a dot lies and is tormented by his conscience in a gnarly psychedelic fashion.

"JOT was produced by the Southern Baptist Radio and Television Commission (RATC) as a Baptist version of Davey and Goliath.
JOT's name may be a reference to Matthew 5:18, "For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled."

  1. Jot was one of those I saw at an impressionable age, as it was used by a local CBS affiliate's Christian children's program up to the late 80's, though Jot himself didn't really have the same staying power that existed for Davey & Goliath, so his memories are really locked into Baby Boomer/Gen-Xers like ourselves who may want to see him again someday or share him with our Z-Gen snots.
