As Christmas approaches Frogtown Hollow, Emmet Otter and his Ma can only dream of buying each other gifts with the little money they make, Ma doing laundry and Emmet doing odd jobs! So, when a Christmas Eve talent contest is announced, Emmet joins a jug band and Ma decides to sing a song. But Emmet will have to put a hole in Ma's washtub to make a bass! And Ma will have to hock Emmet's tool chest to buy herself a costume! Should Emmet and Ma risk all they have to make each other's dreams come true? Narrated by Kermit and based on the book by Russell and Lillian Hoban, Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas will put a song in your heart!

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that except for Kermit the Frog in an introductory sequence, none of the familiar Muppet characters appear here -- no Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Elmo, Gonzo, etc. There is repeated mention of a dead loved one, an eccentric but fondly remembered father.
