Sesame Street "Home Video and Audio" retail promotional poster.

Sony Wonder was the children's division of Sony Music Entertainment. It was the distributor of Sesame Street albums and videos from 1995 to 2007.

Many new titles were introduced into the Sesame Street line of home video and audio, and most would be rereleased thereafter by other distributors. A few audio releases are rebranded versions of albums previously released by Columbia Records, Sesame Street Records, and Golden Music. Much of the show's catalog of video titles from Random House Home Video were also reissued. Sony Wonder continued Sesame Street’s book and audio output as well, including rereleases of some older titles from Golden Books. The label also released two volumes of Dog City, and the soundtrack from Muppets from Space.

In 2007, after Genius Entertainment gained the video distribution rights to Sesame Street, Sony Wonder was nearly shut down by Sony Music in order to focus on its core music business.[1] Instead, ownership was transferred to Sony's main home video division, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.[2] Under this new ownership, Sony's final video releases of The Wubbulous World of Dr. Seuss, which were repackaged box sets of earlier DVDs, carried the Sony Wonder label.
