Once upon a time in the town of Point
- all the buildings, trees
, and even the people
were pointed. Except
for one little round-headed
kid named Oblio
"I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points, and the little branches came to points, and the houses came to point. I thought, 'Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it.'" – Harry Nilsson""The Point!" is an a
a play and an album
created by Harry Nilsson. Harry's album version
has him narrating
which many prefer
to the film version.
It still inspires today with a cover album
by indie artists and even a live half-puppet, half-human show version.
There's even a band out of named in honor of the round-headed boy
