Product Details

Product Description


Originally a special for HBO, this Jim Henson production (he also directed) was one of the first real forays into the more realistic, less vaudevillian direction for the Muppets. It also included Frank Oz (Muppeteer), Paul Williams (songs), and Jerry Juhl (script), some of the Muppet Show's usual suspects. Emmet Otter and his jug band are trying out in the local talent show, but they face fierce competition from a gang of toughs, the Riverbottom Gang and their rock band. Perhaps the most notable thing is the creation of a sense of poverty and want that suffuses the little production. Even Emmet's mother, who sacrifices her washtub to further Emmet's cause, gets in the act. Fine Christmas viewing for all ages. --Keith Simanton

We saw this short movie when our children were small. Loved it then. Some really beautiful and meaningful songs in it that most adults would like as well. When I saw it on Amazon, at a really good price, I bought three copies for our grandchildren.

This DVD has been a bit tricky to locate. I look for it each year in the list of Christmas specials and I have been disappointed most years. It is my Chistmas favourite.

A classic, hilarious, incredibly cute Christmas show. I am especially fond of the adorable and catchy tune: "Bar-b-que." Favorite line: "We're not birds, We're a jug band!" Love the snowmobile action too. LOL!

I actually remember watching Emmet Otter when it premiered on the telly years (and years) ago - still such a wonderful and timeless, feel good, fun movie!

I am a fan of Muppets, and this one portrays values that are often missed in this materialist time of history. The music is charming and my son and son in law were amused to see a 70's rock band. Three generations watched it after Christmas dinner.
