An old man tells folktales to his dog.

At its best it's fun, and at its worst it's at least interesting. It's one of the only faithful screen adaptations of fairy tales. They just don't make shows like this - and understandably. Henson and Minghella apparently just said "fuck it" to every conventional idea of what audiences like and made the weird-ass show they felt like making.
