Known for the Sesame Street sketches starring his beloved Weimaraners, William Wegman is also a pioneering and prolific video artist. These shorts from 1976–98 reveal a different side of Wegman. Among others, titles include Man Ray, Man Ray, a dual biography of Wegman’s first canine collaborator and his surrealist namesake; Late Night, a recreation of Wegman’s visit to David Letterman; and The Hardly Boys in Hardly Gold, an outrageous sendup of the Hardy Boys starring sisters Batty and Crooky (in the narrator’s words, “Hardly boys, they were girls and dogs”).
