It's mostly the Moog soundtrack, but they've managed to capture some of the awesomeness present in those Sesame Street shorts circa 1972.

Wow, "mefi projects" is about the same length as "more inside;" I was completely surprised when the background color changed.

My coffee is cooling right now, why do you ask?

Using color samples was a nice DIY touch.

I'd like to like this more than I do. It's cool and clever, but it ends up so frenetic that I'm distracted from its distinctive qualities. Maybe that Moog is just a bit too punchy for me.

The project is very clever, the results are beautiful, but the standout component for me was the music. I was disappointed to find out that it wasn't created for the animation. But hey, now I have a Gil Trythall album to buy. Country Moog, hard to beat that.

That is really quite sweet, somehow. Like robot children playing. It reminded me of this animation a bit.

Oh, very cool. Definitely has a Sesame Street vibe, in the best way.

This is the most amazing thing I've seen today.

That was cool. For Christmas, I would like a longer "making of" video, please. (Which is not to say that the existing one isn't really well executed, because it is - but I'd be quite happy to have more detail about this project.)
