The Secret Life of the Sewing Machine

Once upon a time there was a show on TV called "The Secret Life of Machines". The second episode of the show was "The Secret Life of the Sewing Machine".

Here is a short 5-minute version of the show, just showing the part about how the sewing machine makes a stitch. Everyone who wants to understand what is really happening when the sewing machine makes a stitch should watch this video.

The whole show is 25 minutes long. YouTube has a 15-minute limit. Below is the whole show, split in to two parts.

Uncle Traveling Matt

Do you remember Fraggle Rock? It was Jim Henson's show about the Woozle World. It was a children's show that he hoped would bring about world peace.

Gobo's Uncle Matt left the security of Fraggle Rock to explore Outer Space. This video is about Uncle Traveling Matt's first postcard to his nephew Gobo, reporting his observations of the Silly Creatures in Outer Space.

When Gobo remembers Matt's postcard, Gobo, Boober, Mokey and Red have been captured by the Gorgs. Gobo tries to lighten things up by reading Uncle Matt's postcard.
