Sony Wonder (founded as Sony Kids' Music) is a children and family's music and home video arm 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-entertainment label in 2007.
Sony Wonder acquired the video and music distribution rights to
Nickelodeon shows on July 6, 1993. They released videos and soundtrack albums of the shows from then until 1996, two years after Viacom's purchase of Paramount Pictures. After Sony Wonder's distribution rights for Nickelodeon videos expired, Nickelodeon videos from then on were mainly distributed by Paramount Home Media Distribution (and CIC Video internationally until 1999).
Although Sony Wonder no longer distributes Nickelodeon videos and albums, current album releases under the
Nick Records label are now distributed by Sony Music Entertainment.
Several of Sony Wonder's Nickelodeon VHS tapes would be re-released by Paramount Home Video after the license moved to that company. These particular releases are marked with an asterisk.
