Jim Henson's "The Cube" now on iTunes!

Continuing the cube motif is news about the release of Jim Henson's The Cube.

Certainly everyone knows about Jim Henson's puppetry work. But before Sesame Street and The Muppet Show, Jim was pursuing experimental film-making. The Jim Henson Company is starting to make its vast library available on iTunes for purchase, which is truly wonderful. In college, my friend Steve and I were big fans of his work The Cube, which could only be seen at the Museum of TV & Radio (now the Paley Center). Apparently, it originally aired on NBC (!) as part of its experimental programming on Sundays. (Wow, wouldn't it be nice to have that now?) Jerry Juhl wrote the surreal, existentialist script and it features Jerry Nelson (aka Floyd Pepper, The Count, Herry Monster), playing a monk.

"You'll never get out of the cuuubbbe!"
