  1. Oh my gosh I love, love, love Emmet Otter’s Jugband Christmas. I could not wait for it to come on every year and I would annoy my siblings by singing aloud with it. I was even so obsessed I took an old cassette tape player we had and recorded the audio from the TV so I could sing with it anytime I wanted.

  2. I love all of Jim Henson’s work, but my favorite film would have to be Labyrinth. Thank you for the fun giveaway. happy holidays!

  3. Emmett Otter is my absolute favorite Jim Henson project. I watched it every Christmas when I was younger, and my brother bought me the VHS tape of it and I still watch it to this day. Thank you so much for this opportunity!

  4. Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas actually influenced me musically. The River Bottom Nightmare Band is one of the greatest band names of all time. I have taught myself most of the songs on guitar, my favorite is Barbeque. “Barbeque, bless my spirit I swear it never fails. And the taste of mama’s sauce just stays there forever if you ever get it under your nails….”

    And of course “Look at the birds up in the trees.” “Hey, we’re not birds, we’re a jug band!” Love it. Check Chuck!

  5. Emmet Otter is still my fav and I’m 56 years young lol! Every Christmas when it came on TV back in the early 90’s my daughters would watch it and they loved it!
