Sesame Street 4: Fat Cat Sat Hat

When people talk Muppets, everyone mentions "Mah Na Ma Na". It was a showcase when Henson would appear on talk shows. It appeared early on "Sesame Street" and kicked off the pilot for "The Muppet Show". And yes, it was great. But it was just a first draft for this one. Weird, great character work with simple shapes and jazz punk song that will stick in your head for days.

Sounds like Jim Henson is both the hippie muppet and one of the bald guys. I wonder which he physically performed.
