Poverty Pictures was a New York-based animation studio, specializing in commercial work, which produced a series of cartoon inserts for Sesame Street, which debuted in the show's first season. Many of these were designed by animator/cartoonist Cliff Roberts, who would go on to do more substantial work for Sesame Street. Common voice actors in these segments included Jim Thurman, Bob Arbogast, and Gene Moss.
Poverty Pictures' commercial work included a 1968 spot, in conjunction with major ad agency Young and Rubicam, for Metropolitan Life Insurance.
