This clip from 1984 showcases both the talent and wit of Jim Henson. It also makes me miss that same immense talent and wit.
I started watching this clip thinking “Excellent! A Muppets clip I’ve never seen before!’ (what with Merv Griffin having less than zero presence in Australia, after all), but ended up somewhat melancholy. It’s great stuff… but also a reminder of what was, and isn’t any more.
And yeah, it doesn’t have a whole lot to do with technology in Australia, what with “New York, New York” and everything, but hey, it is Friday. Everyone have a great weekend.
