Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas DVD
"Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas" is a charming music filled program with a slower more relaxed pace then most holiday faire, like the new "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie". The special tells the story of Emmet Otter and his mother Alice, who are poor but content with their life. Having just enough money to survive day-to-day, they can not afford to give presents at Christmas.
When they hear of a talent contest being held on Christmas Eve they both secretly enter, hoping to win the prize money and the chance to buy the other a Christmas present. Emmet and his friends start a jug-band, and Alice enters as a singer. But with money being tight, Alice and Emmet end up selling, or taking each others most prized possessions to enter the show.
features the heartwarming music of Paul Williams, who wrote the "Rainbow
Connection" for "The Muppet Movie". The music is what makes
"Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas' so much fun. From the funny "One
Bathing Suit" to the beautiful and moving "Our World",
these are memorable classics deserving of a CD release. The songs will
bring great holiday joy to you and your family every time you watch or
Unlike the highly chopped up "Muppet Family Christmas" DVD, we highly recommend this disc in spite of the few minor edits. The DVD comes in full-screen, or formatted to fit your screen, viewing format, but this was a TV production so it was not recorded in widescreen. Also the DVD has Spanish and English audio languages, scene selection, close captioning, and pretty basic menus. There are no real special features on the disk, like behind-the-scenes or deleted scenes.
The story is great, the music is wonderful, the characters are amazing and it has an inspiring message of love to people of all ages. I watch "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas" every holiday season (and even in the middle of summer). It has become a wonderful, heart-warming tradition in my family and I know you, and your family will love it, too.
