A chronological list of productions for which Jim Henson's Creature Shop provided special effects, creatures, puppets, or additional services.

Film and television

Productions highlighted in yellow were also produced by the Jim Henson Company in addition to the Creature Shop supplying effects.


At this time the Jim Henson Company also operated the Muppet Workshop to create traditional soft-puppets, known as Muppets. After 2004, and the sale of the Muppets to Disney, the Creature Shop and Muppet Workshop merged; the Creature Shop has retroactively added the pre-2004 credits of the Muppet Workshop to their resume - they are not included here.


After selling the Muppets to the Walt Disney Company, the Jim Henson Company ceased creating new Muppets characters and merged the operations of building soft puppets (previously done by their Muppet Workshop) into the duties of their Creature Shop; several already established Muppet brands (such as the Muppets of Sesame Street and various Henson Company properties) continue to be maintained by the Creature Shop, while the Muppets owned by Disney are now maintained by Puppet Heap.
