A wonderful short by Jim Henson. It chronicles the life of Henson running from the beat of time. He is in the hospital, gets a job, gets a wife, lusts after his secretary, has sex, has a kid, goes to jail, breaks out of jail and finally dies. Or does he? All within 9 minutes of very quick cuts, with at least one beat per second. The only dialogue in the film is Henson’s pitiful cry of “Help!” which of course sounds like Kermit. It’s a hilarious short film, almost worth sitting through the Dark Crystal to see.
