On OpenEmu, I have the Sesame Street and Muppet games for the Atari because I turn on SS almost every morning, and I remember reading about a game entitled "Emmet Otter's Jugband Motocross" based on a Jim Henson movie called "Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas" (yeah never heard of it either haha). I have to ask...was this game a prototype or did it get released but is extremely rare? I think they made this game in 1982.

In doing a quick google search, I'm thinking this is a practical joke.

Here's the website I got it from.  Look at the other games.

Definitely a practical joke.

The movie most definitely exists; it was one of my Grandmother's favourites.  :roll:  It aired on TV a few times in about 1980 or 1981.

Wait.... Pepe was a prawn? I used to think he was a crawfish with the worst cajun accent ever. Blew my mind.

But what about the screenshot?

 

I think it could work as a real game but modified
