I kick things off by sharing a personal anecdote about a school project I once did based on Emmet Otter. The movie has left such a lasting impression on me that I couldn't resist bringing its charm to my schoolwork.
As we delve into the podcast, we cover various aspects of the film, starting with the book that inspired it. We explore the talented individuals in front of and behind the camera, from the endearing puppeteers to the creative minds that brought this heartwarming tale to life. The movie's music, which captures the spirit of the holiday season so beautifully, is also a focal point of our discussion.

Additionally, we delve into the various home video releases of the movie, discussing how its popularity has endured and how fans continue to cherish it year after year.
As always, I am joined by the ever-talented Vic Sage, who treats us to another compelling segment of "Why Should I Know this Person." This time, Vic introduces us to the incredibly gifted Jerry Juhl, one of the masterminds behind the Muppet magic.
