Shiresland Fairy Fable Theater is a 2002 DreamWorks television film, directed by Kenny Thompson and written by Tom Martin and Jim Lewis and stars Whoopi Goldberg, David Arquette, Joan Cusack, the cast of Friends and The Shiresland. The plot centers on Matthew Mouse who, after losing all hope for saving the Shiresland Theatre, is assisted by an angel who shows him a world in which he had never been born. This was the first Shiresland production without the involvement of veteran Muppet performer Paul Winchell. Instead, Bill Fagerbakke performed Winchell's characters Michelle Mouse, Boofy and Sid the Cricket marking his feature film debut as those characters.

Felix Fox, performed in the film by Brian W. Armstrong, makes his first major appearance since the death of his initial performer, David Arthur. Arthur's character Jealous the Lizard was also performed by Armstrong and has a speaking role for the first time since Arthur's death.

Alan Oppenehimer was ill during filming, so most of his characters were puppeteered by others and later dubbed by Oppenheimer in post-production. The exception was Oppenheimer's character Lewis the Sea-Rex, who was performed by Jim Cummings.
