Short Film Of The Day: Jim Henson’s ‘Robot’

Why Watch? If it’s part creepy and part endearing, it must be from Jim Henson, right?

io9 keenly celebrated this find from the ATT Tech Youtube channel – a short created by Henson in 1963 for a business owner seminar from The Bell System. Even without seeing his name on the work, you could have guessed it. His unique artistic sense is on display here in a fantastic, desperate monologue from a robot that loves ingesting vast oceans of information smoke. Adorable and unnerving. Yeah, it’s Henson alright.

What will it cost? Only 3 minutes.
