CityKids is a television series that aired late Saturday Mornings on ABC from 1993 to 1994. The show consists primarily of live action performances, interspersed with Muppet segments, courtesy of Jim Henson Productions. These Muppets are composed of original characters designed specifically for the show, not ones taken from Sesame Street or The Muppet Show. These original characters often serve as the Greek chorus for the show, commenting on the situations of the human characters, but not actually interacting with them. Unlike most shows airing on ABC Saturday Mornings and produced by the Jim Henson Company at the time, CityKids was primarily targeted to a teenage audience, not to mention an urban one. Unfortunately, the show failed to generate desirable ratings from any demographic, especially the teenage one, and the show was cancelled by ABC after one season. The show's main theme song was composed by Malik Yoba & Raliegh J Neal II, both also composed other songs for the series and served as Musical Creative Supervisor for the show.
