This show was Jim Henson's return foray into television and consisted of two separate parts. The first part is the adventures of Muppet TV as Kermit the Frog struggles to operate a Muppet TV super station with the usual level of help from his friends. The second part was the Storyteller as an old bard and his sarcastic dog tell more obscure fairy tales from the tradition of the great classics. Written by

In Feburary 2004, the rights to the Muppets were bought by The Walt Disney Company. This was the only series where the distribution rights were split between The Walt Disney Company and The Jim Henson Company. See more »
It does my heart good to see that other people remember this series. I remember watching it on NBC and thinking it was the dawn of a new era of Muppet creativity on broadcast television. Then it was canceled. Then Jim Henson died, and a substantial part of my childhood went with him. Actually, I think the show was probably a summer replacement. But still, I was disappointed to see it go. "The Storyteller" segments came back, and are now available on DVD. I'd like to see the segments with Kermit again, and the new characters that didn't last.
