1991 The second video release of the film by CBS/Fox. One major difference in packaging is that while the first release had two small pictures from the film on the back, this release has a large image of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy from their wedding, with text in the picture.
1999 The third video release of the film. Distributed by Columbia Tri-Star, under Jim Henson Home Entertainment. A number of audio edits occur on this release. The music that plays during the TriStar Pictures logo and many scenes where Animal shouts "Bad man!" are cut, but are present on the 2001 DVD and Blu-ray releases.
