On July 21, 1995, Sony Wonder and Sony Pictures Entertainment joined forces with The Jim Henson Company by releasing new movies with Columbia Pictures and TriStar Pictures through the joint venture Jim Henson Pictures and new sing-along-song programs on home video. The next day, Nickelodeon and Sony Wonder launched Nick Jr. Video; the sub-label was the first to distribute tapes of shows from the block since Hi-Tops Video went out of business in 1992. In 1996, two years after Viacom's merger with Paramount Pictures , Sony Wonder's deal with Nickelodeon expired, leaving Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. videos and DVDs to be distributed by Paramount Home Entertainment (and CIC Video internationally until 1999). Some Nickelodeon DVDs are released by Shout! Factory, a company founded in 2003.
