Ian loves machines and factories. If he’s making a mess, it’s usually not his fault: it’s ‘the machine’. His arms lift, his hands grab and pinch, and everything moves with a rumble or roar or whine. A while ago, I was searching YouTube for clips from one of our family’s favorite shows, How It’s Made. I found a few, but this was my bestest prize.
I don’t know if it’s the Mannheim Steamroller-esque music or the factory worker who looks like my grandma, but this has to be my favorite Sesame Street short. Ever. And it’s still being broadcast!
