Egmont is an international publisher, originating in Denmark, which is best known for its magazines, children's books, and comics. In particular, since the 1940s (and the original name, Gutenberghus), the company has been the principal European publisher of Disney comics, starting with Donald Duck. The company later branched out into film and television divisions, including Nordisk Film.
Since the 1990s, in many languages and imprints, Egmont has published many international Sesame Street and Muppet related books (including Bear in the Big Blue House characters and The Hoobs). Many of these have been through the German imprints Egmont Horizont and Egmont Ehapa Verlag GmbH (the publisher of Micky Maus Magazin).
