Amusingly Violent Coffee 1950s Commercials Created by Jim Henson

You've got to check out this wonderful collection of coffee commercials that were made by Jim Henson back in the 1950s. These are for the Wilkins coffee brand, and they are kind of disturbing in how amusingly violent they are. The commercials starred two puppets, and when one refused to drink the coffee, the other puppet would hit him in the head, shoot him, drown him, slit his throat, and torture him in all kinds of different ways. These make me appreciate Henson's talents even more. They just don't make coffee commercials like this anymore.
