Odd little piece for AT&T
5 April 2012 | by (San Francisco) – See all my reviews

This is an odd short that Jim Henson did for AT&T for their Inpro seminar in 1963. This was a seminar discussing the relatively new world of data communications and the interactions of man and technology. It has recently been discovered in the AT&T archives and digitized. It can be found online and is worth a view. The robot, who is the only character portrayed, bears a striking resemblance to Kermit the Frog. I believe it is voiced by Henson. It goes on at length about how great robots are and how they don't really need humans. This has amusing results at the end but I won't spoil it here. Apparently the robot was originally used in a short film for a German food fair in 1961 and was used in other Henson productions after this. A pretty amusing and odd short from early in Henson's career.
