1st Logo

Logo: On a blue background, we see the green "Jim Henson" signature writing itself. Below it, the word "VIDEO" in spaced out letters, with a red line above it, fades in underneath.

Variant: There is a still variant of this logo that features the words "DISTRIBUTED BY BUENA VISTA HOME VIDEO" appearing at the bottom of the screen.

Trailer Variant: On the coming soon version of the Muppet Sing-Alongs: Billy Bunny's Animal Songs trailer, the Coming This Summer byline appears below the still logo.

FX/SFX: The forming.

Cheesy Factor: The writing of "Jim Henson" is choppy and "VIDEO" fading in is very rough.

Music/Sounds Variant: On VHS releases of Muppet Babies, the same custom music used for the Henson Associates logo is used.

Scare Factor: Low. The music may surprise some, but it's harmless.

3rd Logo
(2001-2006, 2006-present)

Logo: We start at the night scene for the Leland Mississippi Kermit's_Swamp swamp, then the camera pans up to the starry sky. On a certain point before it makes it all the way up, the mint spark draw the "Jim Henson" signature with the comet creates the dot above "i". Then, "HOME ENTERTAINMENT" appears flashing in on below the line. The stars zooms slightly forward while it forms itself.

FX/SFX: Realistic CGI. It's somewhat reminiscent of the 1998 Lyrick Studios logo.


  • On the demo VHS of Kermit's Swamp Years, it starts with the complete version of the music by itself after the FBI Warning screen that popped up the 2nd time after the 9th Columbia Tristar Home Entertainment logo.
  • On Frances: Bedtime for Frances, the spark draws the signature in red instead of green. The dot color created above the "i" by the comet was also red.
    • At the end of the said release, it is the same as above but the white balance is readjusted.
  • On the video game Muppets Cruise Party, the background is darker than normal and the visual quality is lower. The logo fades in at the point the spark draws the words.
  • An in-credit version with everything white appears on Bear in the Big Blue House Live!

Music/Sounds: A shortened, sped-up version of the Jim Henson Interactive logo music. If you hear closely, the tail end of the Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment logo's music variation is heard.
