Although later the Seven Monsters would evolve into a popular animated television show for Nickelodeon, these cels are from their seminal project: a segment to teach counting to be used for PBS' "Sesame Street" -- but the project was never completed, when initial testing revealed children were frightened when the seventh monster unscrewed his head!
