Oh, Thank Heavens. Somebody Gets It Right.
The fistfights that I know would ensue were I to propose that there is only one Christmas film worth your time and effort gives me pause before I say what I'm gonna say. Faint, brief pause. Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas is the best of the best of the best. Apart from my good old buddy old pal Dan, however, few have seen the film or even heard of it. Based on a Russell Hoban book, I do love me my Jim Henson classics.
Imagine my delight then when I saw that darling Cinematical present a piece entitled Christmas With Jim Henson. Number one on the list? You got it. I was simultaneously pleased and disturbed by the fact that I had seen five out of the six Jim Henson Christmassy affairs mentioned. Had you asked me that number before, I'm sure I would have shot very low indeed. A great list in any case.
