Submission + - The Muppets' 1967 IBM sales films (technologizer.com) 2

harrymcc writes: Forty-three years ago, before most people had ever heard of the Muppets, IBM contracted with Jim Henson for a series of short films that it used to educate and entertain its sales staff. These little-known movies--some of which feature cutting-edge office automation equipment such as very early word-processing systems--remain fresh, funny, and surprisingly irreverent. And one of them features the first appearance of the Cookie Monster, who got his big break on Sesame Street a couple of years later.
