A Merry Musical Treat For The Whole Family!  (taglines)


Ma Otter:  A person's got to take some chances or life will never come to nothing.

Wendell:  Hey! Who are those guys?
Emmet:  I think they're from Riverbottom!
Chuck:  Look at the birds up in the tree.
Harvey:  Yeah? Well, we're not birds, we're a jug band!
Charlie:  Yeah! Practicing for the talent contest!
Stanley:  Oh, sure! They're gonna win the talent contest, right, boss? Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha-Ha!
Chuck:  Shut up.
Wendell:  What was that all about?

Ma Otter:  Emmet, what do you say? Sounds better than selling snake oil.
Emmet:  Why, sure. Nobody wants to oil a snake these days! (laughs)

Kermit the Frog:  And so, Ma, Emmet, and the boys started to make a little regular pay, and playing a lot of really fine music. And from then on, Christmas is a little merrier on the river.
