Storyteller book hell

In many mythological, folklore and religious traditions, hell is a place of eternal torment in an afterlife often populated with demons and devils. The term is also commonly used as an expletive, not always necessarily directly referring to the place of fire and brimstone.


  • When Lew Zealand tries to do his act on The Muppet Show in episode 310, Kermit tells him that "some very warm places will freeze over" before he books a boomerang fish act on the show.
  • The gates of hell are shown in The StoryTeller episode "The Soldier and Death". The soldier, unable to die, eventually walks all the way to the gates of hell to surrender his life. However a devil refuses to let him in, and gives him directions to heaven and 200 souls to take with him and go away. This version also appears illustrated by Darcy May in the book adaptation.
  • Hades (and the Greek underworld) are featured in The Storyteller: Greek Myths episode "Orpheus and Eurydice". The term "hades" in Western/Christian theology refers to the abode of the dead, although the Christian concept of hell is more akin to the Greek concept of Tartarus, a deep, gloomy part of the underworld used by Hades as a dungeon of torment and suffering.
