Kermit the Frog's Dalek Predecessor?

AT&T released a very cool video on YouTube: one of Jim Henson's earliest films...

The film, titled "Robot," was written and shot for use in communications seminars by the The Bell System, and features a machine-supremecist robot that looks like a muppet-y version of early BBC Dr. Who baddies, spewing anti-human propaganda such as: "While mere mortals wallow in a sea of emotionalism, the machine is busy digesting vast oceans of information in a single, all-encompassing gulp."

Give Kermit a scarf and a TARDIS, and prepare for battle, baby!
