THE CUBE by Jim Henson

The Cube was an hour-long teleplay that aired on NBC’s weekly anthology television show NBC Experiment in Television on February 23, 1969. The production was produced and directed by puppeteer Jim Henson, and was one of several experiments with the live-action film medium which he conducted in the 1960s, before focusing entirely on the Muppets and other puppet works.” (from Wikipedia)
