Jim Henson Video was a video label distributed by Buena Vista Home Video, which released a variety of Jim Henson productions on video from 1993 to 1996. The distribution deal was first announced on December 19, 1991.[1]

Though a special "Jim Henson Video" logo card was used in the various advertisements for its releases, it was rarely used in the video releases. Instead, nearly every Jim Henson Video release began with the "Jim Henson Productions" logo sequence that was introduced in The Muppet Christmas Carol, shown before each program. However, the Muppet Babies video releases did have a Jim Henson Video logo at the end of the episodes, replacing the Jim Henson Productions logo after the end credits.

Video releases included re-releases of past productions, new-to-video productions, releases of episodes of television series and a few compilation videos; It's the Muppets!: Meet the Muppets! and It's the Muppets!: More Muppets, Please!.


Jim Henson's Preschool Collection


Jim Henson's Preschool Collection was a similar sub-label releasing videos for a preschool target.

Holiday Disney Video Shop advertisements from the mid-1990s, promoting releases of the time, including a few under the Jim Henson Video label; The Tale of the Bunny Picnic, The Dark Crystal and The Muppet Christmas Carol.
