The first episodes of many Henson series are treated like regular episodes, that could easily air later in the show's run without confusion, as opposed to episodes that properly introduce the format of the series. This list is for shows that began with introduction episodes setting the premise or backstory of the series, as well as episodes that mark a proper introduction for a character's debut.
