add void

Gavin

As a nipper I was often plonked in front of the telly when my mum or dad couldn’t be bothered entertaining me or needed to sort something out for themselves. There were a few programmes that would repeatedly enrapture me during these periods of neglect (oh, I had such a tough ubringing – soot-streaked windows, gravel for breakfast, etc.), chiefly Thomas The Tank Engine, Winnie The Pooh, Henry’s Cat, Thundercats, Transformers and The Muppet Show. Looking back on any of these invokes a fond sense of nostalgia, but none have quite the same comedic value as The Muppet Show, the early episodes of which are still genuinely hilarious. This is almost certainly down to the brilliance of Jim Henson, whose roving imagination and whip-crack humour never fails to raise a grin. But before his better-known creations he made a few short, experimental films, one of which I thought I’d post for you here. Hope you enjoy.
