The Muppets And Big Blue
By John Bee [ Wed Jun 2 2010 7:20 PM ]
Before Sesame Street or The Muppet Show ever came into being, Jim Henson worked in advertising. In the late 60's, IBM contracted with him to create a series of short films starring Muppets, designed to both break the ice at meetings and educate IBM staff about the systems and technology their company sold. Some very early versions of the Cookie Monster and Kermit the Frog are present, and though they're prototypes, many of the gags are the pure gold you'd expect from Henson.
