Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas (1977)
Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas (1977)
1977 | Comedy, Family

"There are lots of amazing Muppet Christmas movies, but none come to close to touching the heart of this scrappy little story of a young otter who just wants his mom to have what she wants for the holidays. Henson presents poverty without pandering, no small feat for a made-for-TV puppet show. In its own way, it’s a beautiful retelling of O. Henry’s Gift of the Magi. The talent show at the end has some of Henson’s funniest gags ever. And what exactly are those squirrels doing?"

"My mom, who has this very rich voice, would read this book to me when I was really little. I would lie there in bed, and she'd say, 'Goodnight moon,' and do the whole thing. So I associate this book with safety and love. My parents got me the French translation for Christmas a few years ago (I've always been a bit of a Francophile), and I keep it by my bed. I just love the idea of blessing everything that's near and dear to you before you go to sleep with a simple 'Goodnight.'"

I would like to request that people not read the blurb summary of this book that I found on Amazon. It is far too long and detailed for such a concise work of prose. Even if Backman approved of how much of the story they’ve included there, I certainly do not. However, if you want to know my opinion of this beautifully constructed and thought-provoking novella, please read my review here – which will not give away hardly anything of the story, I promise!
