Jim Henson’s “Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas” is a really short, delightful and heartwarming movie. The film is based on the children’s book by the author / illustrator team of Russell and Lillian Hoban. We can empathize with the two main characters, Ma and her son, Emmet – a family of otters that have to take on odd jobs just to get by. Christmas is approaching, and each wants to give the other a special gift. So, when a talent show comes to town, both Ma and Emmet put it all on the line to win a $50 prize. What they learn at the end will surprise you. This movie, with its puppetry effects, musical depth and picturesque setting, is my recommendation for a family movie this holiday season.
