Well, Bean was in a TON of stuff post-JHH (MCC, MFS, MT) but as a background character -- which makes doing a figure of him and labeling it, say, "From Muppets Tonight" fine under license. The Palisades Muppet FAQ states that they currently don't own the JHH license -- http://palisadestoys.com/new/MUPPETS_SITE/MUPPET_FAQ.html. Also not in the license are Muppet Babies, Fraggle Rock, Little Muppet Monsters, Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, ETC. Using Clifford is allowed under license because he was the main star of MT -- it doesn't matter where they originated from (he doesn't even have his JHH costume nor his bass/guitar when he played with Solid Foam). After all, Kermit didn't originate from TMS yet they have him him. Essentially, if a character appeared in a show/movie in the license they can use it -- with the exception of the Muppet Babies in MTM (I believe).
