Muppet Monday

Well, there are no Muppets in this one, but it really struck me. Wheels That Go is another one of Jim Henson's experimental shorts, just a minute long, and it looks like it could have been an insert on Sesame Street (although the film is from 1967, two years before Sesame Street). It's mainly an experiment in montage; the kid is Brian Henson. The electronic music is by jazz composer Raymond Scott, who collaborated with Jim on four other shorts in 1967.
