Watch: Jim Henson’s trippy short film “Time Piece”

Pin it

This short film written by, directed by, and starring Jim Henson has been making the rounds on the Internet today a full forty-five years after it was released (and nominated for an Oscar) for some reason, but whatever! Now you can put off doing work for another nine or so minutes, because it is pretty great.

(It is also so hilariously sixties in its messages. "The Man is forcing you to conform! You're a slave to the dollar! That secretary has a great rack!" Basically.)

Sex damn, indeed. That Jim Henson was kind of a looker back in the day in a young Peter O'Toole kind of way, right? Not when there are scraps of meat caught in his beard, though.
