Emmet otter dvd info

Heres some info about the emmet otter dvd releases & edits

http://www.muppetcentral.com/article...ter_2005.shtml

10. What scenes are missing from the Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas video?

While the severe edits to Muppet Family Christmas are due to music and lyric rights obtained only for broadcast television (in the United States and Canada), the cuts to Emmet Otter aren't as easy to explain. It's possible a different master than the original broascast version was used by Columbia in order to record their video release. They likely removed Ma's "dock falling" lines in order to make it more "politically correct". If Columbia did use a different master than the one shown on broadcast television, it's possible Kermit's appearance at the end of the special was added later as a last minute addition for the TV debut.

The total running time of Columbia's 1998 video and 2001 DVD release is 50 minutes and 28 seconds.

The following changes from the broadcast original are below:

The sequence in which Ma and Emmet deliver Gretchen Fox's laundry was completely re-edited to remove any reference to Ma's negative response back to Gretchen. The original scene is:

MA: Oh! Well, maybe I can knock a little off the price...
GRETCHEN: You shall. Remind me of that when I pay you, next week. Ta.
MA: We-well, I've got the bill right here, and I'd really appreciate it if...you'd...fall off the dock.
EMMET: (laughs) Way to go, Ma.
MA: Yeah, well, sometimes you gotta talk tough to these uppity types.
WILL POSSUM: Heh heh! That's telling her, Alice.
MA: Oh, Will Possum! I didn't even see you there.

The edited scene is:

MA: Oh! Well, maybe I can knock a little off the price...
GRETCHEN: You shall. Remind me of that when I pay you. Next week.
MA: We-well, I've got the bill right here, and I'd really appreciate it if... you'd...
GRETCHEN: Ta.
WILL POSSUM: Hey there, Alice!
MA: Oh, Will Possum! I didn't even see you there.


In the original, right after Emmet says, "At least there ain't no hole in the washtub," Ma's line is, "Oooh, 'Ain't Got No Hole in the Washtub'! That's what you call your basic keepin' warm while you're rowin' kind of song." The video release cuts right to Ma singing.


Two new lines of "Ain't No Hole in the Washtub" are inserted.


During the talent show, a new act is shown right after Clarence the Dancing Horse. Two huge rabbits (nearly the size of the stage) jump up and down.


Will Possum's comment to Mayor Fox is removed. Instead, Will says to himself, "Gonna be a long night," after the rabbit dance.


Kermit's appearance in the Riverside Rest, watching Emmet's band perform, is removed completely.

Kermit's original opening.

If you are trying to find an unedited version of this special, post that you are looking for it in the "trades" section of our discussion forum in order to arrange a trade with another fan. You can also read a review of the Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas DVD.
