Pak-Nit, and its sister product, Pak-Nit RX, were a variety of pre-shrunken fabric produced by Compax Corporation, guaranteed to prevent shrinking and stretching during the laundry process.

The company hired Jim Henson in 1965 to create three industrial films for their products. The films parody fairy tales and classic literature—featuring spoofs of "Hansel and Gretel," "Frankenstein" and "Rumpelstiltskin." The films were scripted by Ruth Branchor, a copy writer for Mogul Williams Saylor (the advertising agency for the account).[1]
