Jim Henson hosts an anthology series. The typical format has the first part being the misadventures 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 is the Storyteller as an old man and his sarcastic dog tell obscure fairy tales in 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 »
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.
