Henson Heads for Homes: Brian Henson, president of Jim Henson Productions, said Wednesday that Jim Henson Home Video has been formed to market several hundred hours of TV shows from the Henson library, most of them new to video, featuring such characters as Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. Henson Video also will release original made-for-video programs as well as Henson’s feature films. The announcement was made jointly with Buena Vista Home Video--a division of the Walt Disney Co.--which will distribute the tapes worldwide for at least five years. The first cassettes will come out next fall and most likely will be priced from $10 to $20.
