Two Classics, sadly mangled

"I was thrilled to receive these two old favorites for Christmas. Then, I watched them. For A Muppet Family Christmas, the video has been remastered and the picture is quite clear, but there are HUGE edits, entire scenes cut out, that not only remove the best part of the show, but make the whole experience choppy (see other reviews under "A Muppet Family Christmas" sold separately). Emmet Otter is, as near as I remember, fully intact, but the audio remastering has left the lyrics during the musical numbers nearly impossible to discern, even if you know them by heart. If you've got either of these taped off of TV from some time in the past, I would encourage you to borrow a second VCR and record them over onto a fresh tape to last you another 15 or so years. Maybe they'll have brought out a good version of these shows by then."

"We've been waiting for this one on DVD, it's a tradition in our house. A family must have, an everybody must see! A holiday classic now in clear crisp Henson artistic expression."

"The new COLLECTOR'S EDITION of Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas has all the original muppet magic. The new A Muppet Family Christmas has put back in the missing scenes taken out a few years ago. It is well worth the Christmas holiday to enjoy these two classics with your family.
