Cookie Monster eats a machine

Nathan showed me this clip on YouTube the other day. Originally broadcast on October 8th, 1967 the clip shows Cookie Monster eating a talking bit of machinery. It shows the wonderfully weird early years of Sesame Street, a weirdness that was channeled into The Muppet Show, as well as just how much of an attention span we've lost since then. I can't imagine a kids show putting a four minute clip on like this today.
