Early Henson

Sam and Friends was Jim Henson's first TV show. A series of five-minute clips, it featured early rough drafts of some of Henson's later characters.

This last one is also interesting because of the noticable orthicon artifacts, the black areas around bright objects, a common problem with early video cameras that used an image orthicon tube.
