Dir. Jim Henson. 1989. 52 mins. Digital projection. Inspired by the classic paintings of dogs playing poker, the canine gangster comedy Dog City made its debut in 1989 as an episode of “The Jim Henson Hour.” Jim Henson won an Emmy for directing the show, which inspired the 1992-1995 animated/puppetry series “Jim Henson’s Dog City.” Henson effects experts Fred Buchholz and Tom Newby will be on hand to discuss the behind the scenes wizardry used in Dog City and other Henson productions.
