Jim Henson's The Animal Show with Stinky & Jake: Lions, Tigers & Bears DVD Review

Jim Henson's  The Animal Show with Stinky & Jake: Lions, Tigers & Bears DVD Review 



Synopsis: Jim Henson's "Animal Show with Stinky and Jake" brings out the wild side of wildlife – as only The Jim Henson Company can! Your hosts, Stinky the Skunk and Jake the Polar Bear, welcome guests of the animal kingdom to the furriest talk show to ever hit the airwaves. There's music and merriment in this show that has the animal world roaring – ANIMAL SHOW! LIONS, TIGERS AND BEARS” includes 5 episodes: "Zebra and Lion,” "Tiger and Tiger Beetle,” "Raccoon and Polar Bear,” "Chimpanzee and Hyena,” and "Grizzly Bear and Hedgehog.”

Review: The Jim Henson's  The Animal Show with Stinky & Jake aired on Fox Kids back in 1994 through 1996.   Animal Planet later picked-up the show in 1997 and produced 26 new episodes for the series.

This is basically a talk-show format television show where an animal comes on and discusses their real-life counterparts.  I remember watching this one when it aired on Animal Planet.  It was a lot of fun.  It has the typical Henson zeal and zest for life.  Jim would have been proud.  There were also a lot of cut film segments with songs from previous Henson properties like Fraggle Rock and the Muppet Babies.  These are really fun to see.

This is another great Jim Henson company release from Lionsgate.  We hope to see many more of these soon, including full seasons of the Animal Show!  Pick this one up for yourself or your kids.
