Jim Henson's Time Piece

I'm indebted to jeffwik for pointing to this. Any fan of Jim Henson needs to watch it (raqs, I'm lookin' at YOU).

Very very very YOUNG Jim Henson. Written by, directed by, starring. Only the merest hint here and there of muppets to come. More SEX than you might expect. But when you think about SS and the muppets, really, the weirdness in it can't be that surprising.

(I also have to congratulate myself that I was able to date it to 1963-1965 on the basis of the cars on the street alone, before I looked at the info posted and discovered that it was first screened at the MMA in May 1965. Go me.)

Oh my gods! I saw this in college and it is quite something. He died too young. *sigh*

Ps. He would have loved Farscape I think.

The Muppets used to have more sex, too. The very first Muppet show was called "Sex and Violence".
