Here then is a charming little song and movie [QT] about Things That Don't Exist, presented by a cast of sock puppets. Found on the fan art page of the previously linked Daily Dinosaur Comics.

I didn't know such fun existed!

(could have used some subtitles though)

That was great!
It made me miss Sifl and Ollie, too...

I caught flying submarines, meatless liverwurst, and "free shampoos from kangaroos". Therefore, this movie earns my utmost respect.

This was surprisingly good!
But, I'd love to see a transcript.

Some of the worst puppetry work I've ever seen! It's the thumb that goes up and down, not the other fingers. You only open the mouth when a word is said; sometimes once per syllable, otherwise the illusion is nonexistent and you're just strange people with socks on your hands. When a song of that nature comes to a musical interlude, you don't just stand there lightly bobbing the puppet heads up and down. That's an opportunity to do some kinda visual humor thing. Sheesh! Henson's spinning in his grave! It's not like this is rocket science.

Sorry you didn't like it Zach. I think the lack of polish is part of the fun, myself.
