Really! I do! I tried it once when I was like 18 or 19, and just couldn't get into it. I turned it off and haven't gone back since. I think it was just different than what I expected it to be. But, one of my dear friends recently sent me a DVD of "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas" and I watched it Saturday night, and I am proud to say I am just SO in love with this special! I can't wait to watch it again! All those li'l river critters are so darn cute, especially wee li'l Emmet. How can you not love this guy?? He's my favorite character, and usually it's a supporting character who's my favorite, not a lead. His ma was awful sweet too (and I thought it was funny that he sleeps in overalls and a shirt, lol). That Riverbottom Gang was rotten-yet-entertaining, and the fish did crack me up ("water seat" in the car? The spits? LOL!). Speakin' of dads, this dang special almost made me cry. Emmet: "I've never given Ma a nice Christmas present before...Pa either. Of course...now it's too late". Ack! Be strong, blink away the moisture! I really liked the songs. "Ain't no hole in the washtuuuuuuub!", "brotherrrrrrrs!" LOL! The barbecue song and Alice's contest song were good too, and now "When the River Meets the Sea" has a new and more special meaning now that I've seen the source. I loved all the puppetry too. From the amusing use of marionette strings from some distant shots as the characters walk, to the ingenius use of their cute li'l furry paws (I especially loved the scenes cutting between Emmet cutting the branch, fixing the fence, and Alice washing on the washboard and sewing...and Emmet dropping firewood logs by the stove, lol). I don't care how far somebody travels, you shouldn't allow a last minute entry. But in the end it didn't matter...our heroes got better things. I am so glad I gave this another chance. I tried it approximately 8 or 9 years ago when someone sent me a copy, but I found it slow, boring, and uninteresting, and turned it off not very far into it at all. You know what? ("What?") I think I was expecting it to be more Muppety in the vein of "A Muppet Family Christmas" instead of, say, "The Muppet Musicians of Bremen". But it's a very different sort of Muppet production from MFC, much more like MMoB. But they're all wonderful. I am glad to say that this special will now be an annual viewing for me---at least once each Christmas season. I'm sorry I've missed out on it for nearly a decade due to a false impression, but better late than never! Long live "Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas"! Really! Long live!
