Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

A Great Show
19 July 2001 | by (Oregon, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I was only six or seven years old when this show was on, but I remember making sure I watched it. I still have some of the old episodes on videotape, and after rewatching them, I have realized that this would have been a classic TV show had it survived. The first half consisted of Muppet comedy sketches, and it usually had a guest star, like Ted Danson. Some sketches were one-shot deals (like a monster telethon), and some were series (like Bootsie, a spoof of the lives of Barbie and Ken-very funny sketch, I might add). The second half was usually devoted to the Storyteller, whose tales included Lighthouse Island and The Soldier and Death (You can still buy some of these stories on video). This was a very enjoyable show, and it's a shame that it didn't last very long.
