Heat Miser! Ralphie!

Here's my MSNBC.com Weblog post about TV holiday specials.

How did I get this old and never see Emmett Otter's Jug Band Christmas? I love Muppets!

You've never seen Emmett Otter?! Seriously, it's easily among the top three best holiday specials ever produced, if not THE best. It's got everything -- a jug band, Frank Oz and Jim Henson at the height of their powers, an actual fresh take on the Gift of the Magi, a spitting frog, a bear riding a snowmobile, about 15 awesome catchphrases you'll still be using decades later ("I'm not hungry. I'm HUNGRY."), and, best of all, non-syrupy heart.
