Following a somewhat uncomfortable and fairly disturbing sleep, I woke up, flipped on the TV, and saw a man with a 70's porn star moustache tucking a giant crow puppet into bed. He was singing the Beatles "Goodnight" in Hebrew (the orchestral backing music was quite faithful to the original) while the video faded in and out from a very lo-tech marionettes-in-front-of-a-blue-screen display of stiff little angels coasting through the stars. The whole thing was simultaneously worse and better than any scene from "The Wall" -- better because it held my attention more acutely than anything from that movie, and worse because this was supposed to be a children's show.

My brain instantly melted but I've been having a pretty good day ever since.
