Plot Outline

Jim Henson's Intro

Jim Henson talks about the second half hour, Lighthouse Island.

Bean Bunny has taken the satellite dish from the roof.  Kermit  tries to put it back, but falls off, busting a hole in the roof. Lindbergh tries to fix the roof, but only makes things worse. Muppettelevision is being flooded.

NOTE: In 'The Jim Henson Show' edit, the Thought Lion gives Jim a note reading "get on with it" instead of the original Jim talking about Lighthouse Island.


An underwater-themed show, taking place while a number of water-related issues occur at Muppet Central. A cast of Muppet fish take center stage - which Kermit calls "Friends in relation."


Lighthouse Island

A young man must assist an eccentric older woman in retrieving a powerful jewel, in order to get a pair of shoes for his fiancee. But all is not as it seems.


Jim Henson shows off a small puppet of a Whale - or a whale of a puppet.
