Disney's The Muppets: Blu-ray Combo Pack, with its flawless picture and pitch perfect sound, comes with a fantastic slate of bonus content including the laugh out loud "The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History--We Think)." The exciting release also includes the hilarious featurette "A Little Screen Test on the Way to the Read Through," which follows Jason Segel, Kermit the Frog, The Great Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and others as they get ready for the first day of production, and much more fun.

"Blu-ray is a great way to bring The Muppets into your home without having to worry about cleaning up after us," said Kermit the Frog, commenting on the announcement. "And the behind-the-scenes extras are a revealing tell-all look at what it took to bring our movie to the big screen. It's a must-see for fans of bloopers, flubs and slip-ups - which pretty much describes our act."

Miss Piggy is equally thrilled at the movie's Blu-ray release, "Now you can watch moi whenever you want! Ooh! Lucky vous!"

Additional fun-filled features on Disney's The Muppets Blu-ray include a groundbreaking industry first -- 'Disney Intermission,' a hilarious all-new feature that allows viewers to press Pause on their remote control and watch as the Muppets take over the screen and entertain until the movie resumes playing. The release also includes "Explaining Evil: The Full Tex Richman Song," an extended version of the rollicking rap song by villain Tex Richman (Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper) who provides the hilarious backstory of why he hates the Muppets. Audio commentaries with screenwriter and star Jason Segel, director James Bobin and screenwriter Nick Stoller are also included.

With the Muppet's signature irreverent comedy, songs and dancing, Muppet fans of all ages will cheer as the gang reunites to put on a benefit show to save the crumbling Muppet Studios from being razed by nefarious oil baron Tex Richman. New fans and long-time devotees will find the rainbow connection when they bring Disney's "The Muppets" into their very own homes.

    So... I'm a little confused. The 3-Disc set contains the "spoof trailer" yet the 2-Disc set has "hidden easter eggs?" Are they one in the same?

    @bawnian-dexeus It's a pretty good movie. I had a lot of fun with it. In fact, it's not only a great continuation to the Muppet movies but a great homage as well. It references the Muppet Show and a few of the films, but I don't remember any mention of the Muppet Babies or anything creative to remember it like The Muppets Take Manhattan did. It's a great flick and managed to make its way into my top 5 for 2011.

    I saw the original show a few times as a kid, and the only show I followed was the Muppet Babies show. What else am I supposed to watch at a day care? Anyway, I might watch this eventually, but I'm not that interested.

    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx The Muppets was one of the best and most fun movies of 2011. It's full of nostalgia and has some great toe-tapping songs. Not to mention brilliant jokes. You'll love it!

    Digital Download card? I kind of wanted a disc all on it's own. Like how Warner Bros. would package. Oh well, I'll still get the Wocka Wocka set.

    Will buy the DVD!! Loved this film!

    Just think the Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack is a waste of money...I don't two copies of the same film!

    I wish it was just either DVD or Blu-ray ...NOT both!
