Honor the Memory
Review by Sarah on 08/24/22 review stating Honor the Memory
Jim Henson was a dynamic power of goodness in the world. I enjoy all his work. Emmet Otters Jug Band Christmas, is my favorite. A touching 60 min special in a rural town with animal citizens, great miniature landscape, humor and love with classic folk tunes arranged by Paul Williams. Puppets never looked better.
