Emmet Otter Strikes Back

I contacted HIT Entertainment , and asked if there were any news on "Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas" (DVD, VHS, TV airings). And it looks like they now have a plan for Emmet. The responded with this great news:

Thank you for contacting us. We are looking into releasing Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas on VHS/DVD Fall 2005. We are also looking into deals for TV airings for the 2005 holiday season.
Thank you for your interest in HIT Entertainment.

It looks like next Christmas HIT will give us Emmet again. But I think the letters, phone calls, and e-mails about getting the unedited version should start before it is too late. I also wonder if any special features will be encluded on the dvd? Wow, this is great news for those who missed the release the first time (and even those who didn't miss it). Next Christmas we'll have Emmet Otter again!

Having recently purchased and viewed the new HIT release, I can report they DO have a 'making-of' video included. This was made sometime in 2005, and includes interviews with Paul Williams and others involved in the making of Emmett.

Also included is a 'blooper' video, and a section that shows the parts edited out of Emmett over the years.

Kermit has been removed, though, since Disney owns those rights.
