While recording Nilsson Sings Newman, Harry Nilsson began working on an album-length children's fable--The Point!--including his own songs and narration, which would later become an animated film and a musical. "I was on acid and I looked at the trees and I realized that they all came to points," he said. "I thought, 'Oh! Everything has a point, and if it doesn't, then there's a point to it.'" In his fable, a boy named Obio is the only round-headed human in a pointy-headed world. Harassed by other kids, Nilsson narrates, "The only real friend he had was his dog, Arrow."
