Coming Soon: Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas 40th Anniversary DVD!

It seems that every few years the classic special Emmett Otter's Jug-Band Christmas gets released on home video.

This is year, Sony will handle the "40th Anniversary" edition release. Not only has the special been completely remastered, but all of Kermit's scenes are intact as well!

The listing states the aspect ratio at 1.78:1, which is in between it's original ratio of 4:3 and the typical 1:85 widescreen. 

Bonus features include:
  • “Behind the Scenes in Frogtown Hollow” Featurette
  • Deleted/Alternate Scenes
  • Outtakes
  • Lost Song: “Born in a Trunk”

Most of the bonus features have been carried over from the 2005 "Collector's Edition" release, but with Kermit confirmed, if you've been holding out for a official release with his scene, this is the version to get!

Emmett Otter's Jug-Band Christmas 40th Anniversary DVD (with Kermit) will be released September 9th, and you can pre-order it now through Amazon.

Thanks to John Papovitch for the heads up!

  1. I'd love to see this on Blu-Ray. I'm pretty sure the original was shot on video, but if the upscale to 1080p was done properly it might be worth it.
