Back in the late 60’s Henson made films that large corporations could show during coffee breaks of lengthy business meetings. The above skit was originally used in a 1967 black & white film that Henson had made for IBM. Later that same year, Henson did a color version for the Ed Sullivan show.
When he used the bit again later on the George Burns episode of the Muppet Show, he switched to a different Muppet Monster, because at that time, Cookie Monster was already an established character on Sesame Street.
I haven’t seen that in YEARS!
Wasn’t it on Saturday Night Live or something?
Heh. He said “mome raths”.
It’s from the second season of the Muppet Show.
It looks like something from SCTV.
“Maximum data existentialization.” I hear that’s going to be in Leopard.
Huh. New here, then?
