A Mix of Muppets, Magic & imagination
12 April 2000 | by (The Big One) – See all my reviews

The Jim Henson hour is what you get when you cross traditional Muppet fare with all the other creativity bottled up in Mr. Henson's imagination; This show had it all! "Muppet Show" style entertainment with the likes of Kermit the Frog & Miss Piggy, Science Fiction stories featuring some amazing puppetry, and installments of Jim Henson's "Storyteller". You could even learn "The Secrets of the Muppets" in one behind-the-scenes type special episode.

It's sad that this show began so close before Jim's untimely death.
