I've mentioned Jim Henson’s EMMET OTTER’S JUG-BAND CHRISTMAS many times in the past, if only because it's one of my all-time favorite holiday specials - one that I watched on HBO more times than I could count as a child. Now comes news that it's coming back to DVD on October 10 (pre-order via Amazon) from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment as a 40th Anniversary Edition, fully-remastered for a new generation.

Indulge me for a moment and envision Emmet Otter's Jug Band - but as humans, rocking out with a washtub bass, a kazoo, a cigarbox guitar, and a host of other homemade instruments. Ok, that is pretty much any jug band, but if you were able to picture Emmet Otter, I think you might enjoy GREEN AND BUMPY, the latest album from Michigan's DEEP FRIED PICKLE PROJECT.
