Senior Consultant

Trying to find an old childhood show. I think it aired in the 90s but could be earlier. Animated show about a group of woodland creatures searching for something while I think they were pursued by a frog and his henchman. I thought it was PBS but after checking their wiki it didn't seem to be a former show. It is also not the red wall series.

    Pros

    The Ball State Public Media team works hard to put out great content for our viewers. The team is small and the office houses both PBS and IPR but everyone brings their own personality and passion together to make work collaborative and fun.

    Cons

    Because it's such a small team, every person has an unlimited amount of job requirements to finish a given project.
