Episode 17 - Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas and Ernest Saves Christmas


"Ho! Ho! Ho!" everybody! It's the Dragonfly Ripple Holiday Special! Carlin and Michael start the show talking about Christmas movies and TV specials that they grew up with. Which have stood the test of time? Which are still annual must-watches?

Then, when Annaliese and David join in, they discuss a couple of specific Christmas productions from Jim Henson and Ernest P Worrell. And on a special Jetpack Tiger, Dashiell flies solo to talk about the experience of learning The Truth about Santa. There are SPOILERS about the Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy as well, so be careful about listening around young ears.

Finally, the gang talks about which nerdy Christmas ornaments they wish existed to hang on their trees.
