Jim Henson's Incomplete Animated Film, Alexander The Grape

In 1964, Jim Henson‘s Oscar-nominated short film Time Piece used a wide range of unusual and borderline experimental techniques including, for a moment, some cut-out animation. A year later, he decided to try and make a film entirely out of cut outs.

The resulting film was Alexander the Grape. It was never completed, but the Jim Henson Company Archives have taken what finished footage there is and cut it together with storyboards of the incomplete shots.

Here’s the resulting video, all 4-and-a-quarter minutes of it. It’s pretty goofy.

I should remind you that another project sourced in the Henson archives will be reaching stores tomorrow – a comic book adaptation of Jim’s unfilmed screenplay, A Tale of Sand.

Thanks to Cartoon Brew for the heads up on Alexander.
