New Henson videos coming in September

Columbia TriStar Home Video (CTHV) has announced a wide-ranging agreement with The Jim Henson Company to distribute home video product under the Jim Henson Home Entertainment (JHHE) banner. Further expanding the scope of its extensive library of home entertainment product, CTHV will act as the sole distributor of the JHHE line of video, Laserdiscs and DVD in North America and select international territories.

Margaret Loesch, president, Jim Henson Television Group Worldwide, will have overall responsibility for all operations of the JHHE banner. The JHHE product mix will feature the company's catalogue of critically acclaimed feature films, television specials and series as well as new made-for-video product. The line will include materials previously released on home video, such as the various Muppet movies, as well as new-to-video feature length and short-form releases.

Under the new deal, the first JHHE package will be made available on September 15th and will include two never-before-released multi-episode volumes of Jim Henson Television's "Bear in the Big Blue House'' ($14.95), the critically acclaimed preschool series currently airing on  Disney Channel. This will be followed by a September 29th offering of three previously released titles, "Muppet Family Christmas,'' "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas'' and "The Christmas Toy.'' We will have to wait and see if "Muppet Family Christmas" is the uncut version or if it will be the same one released by Jim Henson Video.

Since Columbia Tri-Star helped to produce The Muppets Take Manhattan in 1984, it is likely that we will eventually see this movie re-released on video. The Muppets Take Manhattan was released on video in 1985 and 1991, but has long since been out of print. It is also exciting to know that Muppet titles will be on DVD, the upcoming video standard!
