Approx, 70 mins.

Originally shown on The Jim Henson Hour, Dog City features a fully realized Muppet universe—a 1940s film noir city populated entirely by dogs, with Muppet favorite Rowlf the Dog narrating from a piano. “The Soldier and Death” is one of the finest episodes produced for Henson’s acclaimed television series The Storyteller, which used a blend of puppets and live action to rework classic and obscure folk tales.
