Family Home Entertainment (FHE) is an American home video company founded in 1981. It releases children's and family-oriented programming, most notably the popular 1980s Marvel/Sunbow television series "The Transformers", "G.I. Joe", "Jem", as well as "ThunderCats", the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" animated series, Gumby, The Care Bears, and Bucky O'Hare. It also has a theatrical release division, FHE Pictures, established in 2002; its first release was "". FHE was the distributor for most of the seasonal Rankin-Bass TV specials, the others being Vestron Video, Children's Video Library and Lightning Video, three now-defunct home video distributors. The company has also released several VHSs of British kids' cartoons in the US since the 1980s (i.e., Will Quack Quack), as well as some Japanese anime, plus the Australian "Dot" films.

In 1982, the company introduced USA Home Video as a non-family division of the company. In 1986, the company changed it's name to International Video Entertainment, and then to Live Entertainment, with "Family Home Entertainment" as an imprint of the company. They would later go on to become Artisan Entertainment, which has since been acquired by Lions Gate. For further information on the company, see the articles in question.
