Drums West

Here's a real treat: the Jim Henson Company has unearthed a 1961 papercut animation by Jim, set to music by jazz great Chico Hamilton. (Tantalizingly, it's described as "one of several" experimental shorts set to Hamilton's music.) Great stuff on Friday afternoon, and there's some silent footage at the end of young Jim working on the film.
