Psychologist puts social messages into TV By JERRY BUCK AP Television Writer LOS ANGELES (APt - Dr. Gordon Berry says there should be more to children's television than cuddly bears. "We should force children to reach for ideas as we entertain them." said Berry, an educational psychologist who spends a lot of time looking at children's shows and considering their effect on youngsters. He is a professor in the Graduate School of Education at .UCLA, where he teaches courses in educational psychology He also teaches a course on "Children and Television" in the communications studies area In addition, he is a longtime consultant to the production company Filmation and to CBS. He works with filmmakers on the impact certain scenes might have on children and on insuring that shows have a pro-social content Berry first became a consultant on "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids." He has also worked with such programs as "Secret of Isis." "The US of Archie." "Captain Kangaroo." "Shazam," "Zoobilee Zoo." 1 ' T h i r t y Minutes.' 1 "Ghostbusters" and two upcoming shows, the animated series "BraveStarr" and the live- action comedy "Bustin' Loose." "'Fat Albert' was a show that did not deal with the cognitive side, such as 'Sesame Street." but with the affective side," Berry said. "It was a program that dealt with feelings, the importance of obeying parents, the importance of going to school. "Bill Cosby appeared live on the show, while the rest was animation. It came out of Cosby's life. 'Fat Albert' was a leader in presenting pro-social messages on children's television, When the program started, the general wisdom was that children would not look at anything that was 'preachy.' It became a major hit." Berry does not write any of the shows, but reviews the scripts and frequently makes suggestions. Sometimes, he said, it takes up to a dozen calls with the writers to work out the proper phrasing for a line. Berry said a special challenge was Filmation's new action- adventure show. "BraveStarr." which he described as "Indians in outer space." "This show is unique because it has a Western flavor and is set in outer space." he explained. "We want this kind of major character to be a role model for children. So we have to have a soft and gentle quality within a character who is involved in action-adventure. "He's a tough guy, who uses his special skills in a soft and gentle way. It isn't easy. The show also has a female character who is bright and action-oriented. 1 like for young people to see those kinds of characters in children's television. I think we frequently overlook the fact that there's also an audience of young girls. We need good, bright, strong role models who are female. We need them for boys as well as for girls."
