In this musical Christmas special starring Jim Henson's Muppets, Kermit the Frog narrates the story of Alice Otter and her son Emmet, who live in the riverbank village of Frogtown Hollow. Ma and Emett Otter struggle to make ends meet through odd jobs for neighbors, but this Christmas they dream of having enough money to buy each other a special gift. Known for their musical abilities, the Otters are encouraged by their friends to enter a local talent contest that offers a top prize of fifty dollars. However, the Otters face tough competition from a hard rock group formed by a gang of woodland creatures who call themselves the Nightmare.
