Jim Henson Pictures was an American film studio owned by The Jim Henson Company and led by Brian and Lisa Henson. It was originally 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,[3][4][5] which led to Sony breaking from the joint venture after the release of The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland; further films were released under the name of The Jim Henson Company, although they were credited under their former name on Good Boy! in 2003.[6] Shortly after the release of Good Boy!, Jim Henson Pictures went bankrupt and all of the operations were shut down in 2015.
