Christmas is always better with puppets, as Jim Henson and team were/are well aware.

Now two of the outfit's more under-the-radar (but quite beloved) holiday TV entries, Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas and The Bells of Fraggle Rock, are coming to the big screen in Cleveland tonight and Sunday, Dec. 16 in the form of Jim Henson's Holiday Special.



Remastered and restored, both silly stories offer enough humor and ridiculousness for adults and children alike. The special also includes a fun intro with Amy Poehler, along with Jim Henson's daughter, Cheryl Henson.

The special is playing at Cedar Lee Theatre, Chagrin Cinemas and Southside Works Cinemas. The whole thing lasts about an hour and a half, leaving you with plenty of time to enjoy your evening. Find tickets here.

In case you're going to miss the special, just know that Emmet Otter's "Barbecue" song about, well, barbecue, is exactly the Christmas song you need right now. Enjoy below:
