Trivia: The Storyteller
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: It casts tons of famous British actors, ranging from Dawn French to Derek Jacobi.
  • Throw It In: The dog talking back to the Storyteller was a happy accident. Anthony Minghella just assumed that a dog in a Jim Henson production would talk, and wrote him that way, though Henson had said nothing about whether or not the dog would talk.
  • What Could Have Been: Press release material mentions an episode that seems to be based on an Italian folktale, "Petrosinella" (a "Rapunzel" variant), but it has never been released, or likely ever made.
    • A finished but unproduced script was a retelling of the Russian folktale "The Witch Baby", and would have included the Storyteller and his tarot-reading abilities as part of its events, as in "Hans My Hedgehog". The story of a prince who must confront his demonic cannibal sister (who can grow to the size of Godzilla) was adapted into the 2011 graphic novel anthology.
    • Henson planned to expand the show to have hour-long episodes, allowing for more complex stories and more time to show off the Creature Shop's work, but the show was cancelled before any could be made.
    • A video game adaptation has been in Development Hell
