Emmet Otter is the protagonist of Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas. Emmet has been raised by his mother, Alice Otter, ever since his Pa passed away. He does odd jobs for money using Pa Otter's old tool box - including mending Old Lady Possum's fence and Sam Turtle's stairs.

Emmet would love to own that guitar with the mother of pearl inlays he saw at The Music Store in Waterville. However nothing would make him happier than to buy his Ma a decent Christmas present, something he was never able to give his Pa.

Emmet enjoys singing, and he plays the washtub bass as a member of the Frogtown Hollow Jubilee Jug Band. After participating in the annual Waterville talent contest, the Band (along with Alice Otter) were hired by Doc Bullfrog for a permanent gig singing and playing at the Riverside Rest.

For the musical adaptation of the special, the role of Emmet was originated by Daniel Reichard.
