for the world we live in, see Earth

The World was a game show pilot announced in 2001 by Jim Henson Television. The concept required contestants to endure "physical, emotional and mental tests" within a fantasy world.

The world itself was to be rendered by Jim Henson's Creature Shop as a virtual set, as had previously been used on The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss and in other projects. Scott Sternberg was attached as producer. It's unclear whether the pilot was ever completed.
