The Smithsonian Institution and The Jim Henson Legacy

Traveling Exhibition (More info at the Smithsonian site and at NPR, where you can hear curator Karen Falk talk about Henson's start in TV commercials. Henson made 179 short, violent, and funny commercials for Wilkins Coffee and Tea.)

Hello!

Nice site - you show some great interest in Jim Henson and his work. I thought you'd be interested to know "The Cube," one of his early directorial forays into scifi, is now available for download on iTunes.

This experimental film depicts a man who finds himself in a white cubical room and has no idea how he got there. Although anyone can enter the cube, the man cannot leave. Panels in the cube open temporarily to admit various visitors, some of whom seem to know the man or want to offer advice.

Add the link to “The Cube” to your site to let others know:
