Henson is know in most part for his work on Sesame Street and the Muppets - and the wonderful array of characters there-in.

What we do forget with Seasame Street are the fantastic short films and crazy animations and live action sequences that once you see again they all come flooding back.

This side of Henson rarely seen as we go deep within the vaults to explore his early work.

It’s within them that we the birth of many of the characters we know and love from The Muppets and Sesame Street but we also experience the abstract and unusual works produced as corporate training films, TV commercials, short films and all manner of other unexpected purposes.

This program includes excerpts from experimental TV programs The Cube and Youth ‘68, and Time Piece, the 8-minute Oscar- nominated experimental masterpiece directed by (and starring) Jim Henson himself.
