How communication works, a 1971 animated short from Sesame Street

Watch more with these video collections:

“Once, there were two men. Each had his own idea. One man told his thought to the other man. Then the other man told his idea to the first man.

“Now both men knew twice as much.”

This animation, often referred to as Two Men with Ideas, provides such a simple but meaningful illustration of how communication and knowledge sharing works. Made in 1971, the educational short is from episode 268 in the second season of Sesame Street.Β
