* {{Homage}}: The show was designed to be a Jim Henson version of ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' (hour-long, rotating subjects, Jim introducing and closing each episode, etc.). [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GR8UbcmHcYI More so in the original pitch]], but still.

''The Jim Henson Hour'' was Creator/JimHenson's last television series, and aired on NBC from April 14, 1989 to July 30, 1989. The first half of most of the hours was [[Franchise/TheMuppets 'Muppetelevision']], with the second half a half-hour special showcasing what else Henson could do with puppetry (and one Muppet special, ''Miss Piggy's Hollywood''). Several episodes of ''Series/TheStoryteller'' that hadn't yet aired in North America were originally aired here, as was the one-off special ''Dog City'', which inspired [[DogCity a TV series of the same name]]. One character named Clifford would go on to appear in other Muppet productions, such as hosting ''Series/MuppetsTonight'' and appearing in ''Film/MuppetsFromSpace''.

* LaughTrack: In ''Miss Piggy's Hollywood'', Fozzie Bear's set at The Comedy Store (a RealLife stand-up comedy club) is heckled by JustForFun/StatlerAndWaldorf. He then reveals he brought a laugh track with him just in case, and when he uses it for the same routine, it works so well that they wind up ''surrendering'', complete with little white flags.
