Ripples is another cool experimental Jim Henson short
This experimental short by Muppet creator Jim Henson lasted only about a minute. In this one, an architect (Jon Stone) is throwing little things in his cup in his office which he imagines doing to a pond in a forest outside then dreams during this "ripple" effect of various events that happened throughout history interspersed with still images of many events that are also cultural in nature before we're back in his office with his cup. The end. With suitably eerie sound and music by Raymond Scott, Ripples is another innovative Henson film short that revealed his talent for the unusual that served him later on "Seseme Street" during that show's live-action film segments. I saw this on YouTube where I also watched his Oscar-nominated previous short, Time Piece, that is also highly recommended.
