For everyone who thought I was crazy this morning when Gary and I were talking about our favorite Christmas movies of all times, here's the proof! Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas actually exists.

Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas was a Jim Henson creation that came out in 1977. It's a story about a poor otter family who risks it all during the Christmas season to win a talent competition. The movie is out of print, but I was able to find a copy on DVD a few years ago in town at a CVS for like $5. I promptly bought it for my best friend Rebekah growing up because it was hands down our favorite Christmas movie. It was one of the last movies out there with a real message!
