Sony Wonder (founded as Sony Kids' Music) is a US kids and family's music and home video division of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment, originally founded in 1991 as a branch of Sony Music Entertainment. It became Sony Pictures Home Entertainment's kids and family label in 2007.
Sony Wonder acquired the home video and music distribution rights to
Nickelodeon shows on July 6, 1993. They released videotapes and soundtrack albums of the shows from then until 1996, two years after Viacom's purchase of Paramount Pictures in 1994. After Sony Wonder's distribution rights for Nickelodeon videotapes expired, Nickelodeon videotapes from then on were mainly distributed and re-released by Paramount Home Media Distribution in late 1996 (and CIC Video internationally until 1999).
Sony Wonder does not distribute Nickelodeon videotapes and albums anymore, but current album releases under the
Nick Records label are now distributed by Sony Music Entertainment.
Several of Sony Wonder's Nickelodeon videotapes would be re-released by Paramount Home Video after the license moved to that company. These particular releases are marked with an asterisk.
