Jim Henson Home Entertainment/Clip-On Library

From Audiovisual Identity Database

United States


Bumper: On the same background as the Jim Henson Video logo, we see the following clip-ons in the Optima Italic font.


  • Coming Soon on Videocassette
  • Now Available on Videocassette
  • Feature Presentation

Technique: None.


  • Both “...on Videocassette” clip-ons: None.
  • Feature Presentation: The last few notes of Howard Pfeifer's "All for Just One Thin Dime" as heard on the "Comic Sans Prototype" Feature Program clip-on, with Beau Weaver saying, "And now, our feature presentation."

Music/Sounds Variant: On the 1992 demo VHS release of The Muppet Movie, the Jim Henson Video music is heard over the "Feature Presentation" clip-on. No announcer is heard.

Availability: Slightly common. Can be found on VHS releases of The Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Classic Theater, and the 1996 VHS issue of Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas. VHS copies of The Muppet Movie and The Great Muppet Caper that don't have the aforementioned Feature Program ID have this, too, as well as the variants.

Legacy: A tame bumper despite some off-putting factors such as the 1989 Jim Henson Productions logo that follows it. The lilac background slightly resembles that of the Handwriting clip-ons.

United Kingdom


Bumper: As the Jim Henson Video logo of the era animates, "NOW AVAILABLE FROMALSO AVAILABLE FROM" fades in above it in green.


  • A variant has "ALSO AVAILABLE FROM" fading in above the logo instead.
  • Sometimes the logo is a little more towards the top of the screen, and as "VIDEO" fades in, "NOW AVAILABLE" or "ALSO AVAILABLE" fade in below the logo.
  • On certain VHS tapes, the 1992 Jim Henson Video logo animates as normal, but fades out earlier.

Technique: The logo animating, the words fading in above it.

Music/Sounds: A male announcer says the onscreen text.

Music/Sounds Variant:

  • The orange text variants just have the regular logo music playing instead.
  • On certain VHS tapes, an unknown male announcer says "Coming soon from Jim Henson Video."
  • On the 1994 Australian and New Zealand VHS releases of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Brian Cummings says "Coming soon, from Jim Henson Video."

Availability: Supposedly can be found on UK and Irish VHS releases from the era, though the "ALSO AVAILABLE FROM" green text variant has been spotted on the 1993 UK and Irish retail VHS releases of The Muppet Christmas Carol.
