The original special was hosted by Kermit the Frog; however later releases edited out the frog's naration due to legal issues. While The Jim Henson Company retained ownership of Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, the company sold the rights to the Muppets (including Kermit) to the Walt Disney Company in 2004.
I agree. Kermit should be in here, and money shouldnt be an issue...the loyal fans should be the top consideration.
Having said that, i want All Emmet Otter fans to know that they MUST watch this DVD. If you dont want to buy it, then please atleast rent it. The behind the scenes documentary is fabulous, and it's almost as good as the actual show itself!
You get to see interviews with the actual people that "puppeted" or in this case "Muppeted" Emmet and some of the other characters.
You get to see behind the scenes footage of the people on the set doing their work.
Jim Henson's daughter is one of the primary interviewees, detailing her father's special devotion to the Emmet Otter story and to making it come alive in this special.
You get to see and hear from the people who made the actual Puppets/Muppets, and you also get to see how they got Emmet to row the boat on the River that flows through Frogtown Hollow.
You get to hear an exclusive excerpt of a song that was going to be used in the special, but which was later deleted and never used.
Also there are funny "Bloopers", a "sing-along", clips of the musical segments of the show, and of course the behind the scenes documentary.
Emmet Fans, trust me, a fellow Emmet fan, you owe it to yourself to see that documentary. It gives you a new appreciation for all of the work that it took to make Emmet come alive.Read more ›

This 49-minute version of EMMETT OTTER'S JUGBAND CHRISTMAS is shorter than the network version introduced by Kermit the Frog, but it holds together well nonetheless. Read morePublished 2 months ago by Allen Smalling
