Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas

A Jim Henson classic. Gotta love the Riverbottom Gang. They were so stoned. Watched it every year on TV with religious fervor when I was a wee lad.

I love this special. I saw it when it was first broadcast (on HBO, I think).

I own it on DVD as well -- just watched it last week with the kids.

I agree that the Riverbottom Gang is awesome, but my favorite quote is:

"We're not birds! We're a jug band!"

I agree.."look at the birds, up in the trees" hahahaha

I always found this one a little precious, but by damn the songs were catchy.

"River Bottom NIGHTMARE Band..."

Damian-
Yes! Emmet Otter is correct! And it really is a great special...I don't think Jim Henson ever did anything I've disliked.

Splotchy-
Did you know this was originally from 1977? I certainly didn't. Caught it on HBO like you and figured it was from the 80's. And that is a great quote.

I haven't watched this yet this year I'll have to dig it out.

Matty-
Too fun!

Johnny B-
I always forget about the Nightmare band. I recently noticed however someone was selling a Nightmare Band t-shirt on ebay:
