A Brief History of Motion Pictures was a short shown before features in Sony/Loews Movie Theaters (later merged with AMC Theatres) featuring the Sesame Street Muppets, providing a synopsis of the developments in filmmaking from silent movies to present day.

This short accompanied all prints on the theatrical release of The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland and accompanied Muppets from Space on a smaller number of prints.

Description

Cookie Monster gives a lecture on the history of motion pictures, with examples on film featuring Marshall Grover and Fred the Wonder Horse. They demonstrate how, after a "not too exciting" period with no picture and no sound, moving pictures were invented; followed by moving pictures with sound ("This town ain't big enough for the two of us!"), which resulted in the invention of the musical. An all-star Sesame Street cast, with Prairie Dawn as the director, joins Grover and Fred in a big musical number called "This Town Ain't Big Enough For The Two Of Us," as the movie turns to color and widescreen. Finally, the Special Effects are introduced: a rolling boulder, a shark, and an enormous Muppet twister chase all of the singers out of the studio.

The clip ends with Cookie Monster eating the sled (Rosebud) from Citizen Kane, and Big Bird (appearing out of an MGM-eqsue logo advertising the show's 30th anniversary) telling the viewers to "Enjoy the movie!" as Elmo, Herry and Telly (as The Marx Brothers) run by.
