Think Visual!

Kermit the Frog gets a lesson in metaphysics from Harry the Hipster (a sock wearing glasses).

Dunno where this comes from, but according to MOJO magazine, it's from 1959(!). Very funny, obviously, and sneakily subversive, but also a jaw-dropping technical accomplishment given the TV technology of the day.

Probably from the show Henson did on local Washington television, "Sam and Friends"... there's a ton of that early Muppet stuff on YouTube.

Wow. 1959, wow.

Thank you! I remember snippets of this sketch from Henson retrospectives and could never find its entirety.
