Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas Is Coming to Theaters on December 10 and 16, Plus Enter to Win the Soundtrack on CD!

After 39 years… Emmet Otter returns with a splash!

November 2nd marked the world premiere release of the soundtrack from the beloved Jim Henson produced TV special, Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas. The show first aired on December 17, 1977 on HBO and has re-aired numerous times since. Fans have been asking for a release of the soundtrack for many years, which features songs by the legendary Paul Williams, whose other magical partnerships with Jim Henson resulted in the song “Rainbow Connection.” First-week sales have exceeded all expectations, and this little muppet is now enjoying a ride up the sales charts!

And that’s not all!

Fathom Events is bringing Emmet Otter to theaters this month! Jim Henson’s Holiday Special will run in over 500 theaters on Dec 10th and Dec 16th. Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas will be paired with a Fraggle Rock Christmas special to reach the equivalent of a feature-length film.
