In the heyday that is Muppets Most Wanted, we here at The Muppet Mindset had a major oversight involving another important production, this one from The Jim Henson Company. Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge is a brand new reality show premiering on Syfy tomorrow, March 25th, at 10:00pm EST/9:00pm CT and will air every Tuesday at the same time.
The new reality competition series pits talented creature builders, designers, and engineers against each other in a battle to build the best creature. The winner wins a coveted job in the Jim Henson Creature Shop! The show will feature judges/mentors Brian Henson and Kirk Thatcher, who Muppet fans know from many Muppet productions, and a score of other professionals in the field. From everything I’ve seen, this show will heavily focus on puppetry, creatures, mechanics, and everything in between. And it takes place at The Jim Henson Company. What more can you ask for?
Check out the official trailer for the show, as well as some other features on the cast, the creatures, etc., below!
For all updates, you can like Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge on Facebook, follow @CreatureShopTV, and visit the official webpage for the show. Make sure you tune in tomorrow night for lots of Creature Shop fun! I know I will be.

I was so looking forward to checking out the show to see new ideas for making creatures, especially animatronics. Unfortunately it looks like it will be just another reality show geared toward the drama instead of the mechanics of making anything. This show is even worse than Face-Off, not showing techniques or what it actually takes to make their creations. Who cares if the contestants don’t get along, I can watch Survivor or Big Brother for that. I wish they would re-think the point of the shows.
Well, what did you expect from these types of shows? Singing?
