Jim Henson animation? Yes, please!

Category Contests

Did you know that the Jim Henson Company has been busy making CGI movies? It’s true! And some of them may enable you to take a shower, or eat a bagel in peace. Or both! But not at the same time, I hope.

Here’s the deal—I have three animated Jim Henson Company DVDs to give away: 3 Pigs and a Baby, Tortoise vs. Hare, and The Blue Elephant. The latter two are sealed and suitable for gifting; the first one (3 Pigs and a Baby) has been viewed exactly once. Which means it’d be fine for your kid, but it’s no longer wrapped so I feel compelled to point that out.

Want to win one of ’em? Simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. Eastern (8:59 p.m. Pacific) on Sunday, September 14th, 2008 for a chance to win. One comment per person, valid email address required. I will be using our good friend the random number generator to select the winners, and for this contest we’ll just leave it completely random—no selection of DVD is necessary. I’ll generate three numbers and put the DVDs into mailers and you get what you get.

And you’ll like it, too. Now be quiet and eat your vegetables.

  2. We love Jim Henson!

  3. oh yes!

  5. Oh please please please let it be me! I would loooove to have a shower in peace!

  6. I am lucky enough to have one of those kids that doesn’t care much for TV but LOVES to climb. Bad combo for shower taking. Sad as it sounds (and such bad parenting), I will work on getting him to sit mindlessly if just for his own safety for the 10 minutes he must be alone. I think he would dig any of those videos so sign me up to win!
