The Best Short Films

Why Watch? In 1965, Jim Henson started working on a paper-cut animation with a pun title. This was in the midst of his commercial work – 2 years after he founded Muppets, Inc. but still a full year before his appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show which put him firmly on the map. It’s also the same year he made Timepiece, the experimental short that the Academy was smart enough to recognize with an Oscar nomination. Praise be to io9 for spotting this gem from the Henson Company YouTube channel. It’s a fantastic unfinished piece with the gaps filled in by conceptual material. Haven’t we all dreamed of being a watermelon? What will it cost you? Only 4 minutes. Skip work. Watch more short films.
