Added DiffLines:

* {{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.


Added DiffLines:

* IconicOutfit: Jim in those Cosby sweaters.

''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.

Unfortunately, it failed to catch on. ExecutiveMeddling resulted in a far less structured show than Henson had in mind, leaving audiences confused, and the new Muppets were largely a disappointment. A common refrain from critics was that people should skip the first half of each episode, and only tune in for the ''Storyteller'' segments. As a result, the show ended up being a complete ratings disaster. Twelve episodes were produced, but the ratings were so bad that NBC cancelled it after only ''five'' of them aired. Four of the remaining episodes were burned off that July. Two more episodes premiered as stand-alone specials on Nickelodeon in 1992 and 1993. The last episode never aired in the United States, while it did air in the United Kingdom on December 30, 1990.
