Jim Henson Pictures was an American film studio owned by The Jim Henson Company and operated by Brian and Lisa Henson. It was founded on July 21, 1995 as a joint venture between Jim Henson Productions and Sony Pictures Entertainment.[1][2] However, the company's films suffered from poor box office performances which led to Sony breaking from the joint venture after the release of The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland in 1999; subsequent films were released under the name of The Jim Henson Company although they were credited under their former name on Good Boy! in 2003.
