It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights…

It’s time for my most anticipated film of 2011 to finally come home to Blu-Ray and DVD. The Muppets! Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie, Rowlf, Chris Cooper, Animal, Dr. Teeth, Walter, Statler, Waldorf (I can keep this up all day…)

One of the best Muppet films ever is finally yours to own and watch over and over again with your loved ones or just the young at heart. The Wocka Wocka Value Pack features the Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital Copy, and a download for The Muppets soundtrack, of which “Man or Muppet” just won an Oscar for Best Original Song!

This Wocka Wocka pack is truly stacked with all kinds of behind the scenes fun, like bloopers, deleted scenes (it’s a start Disney, but we know there are more! WHERE ARE THEY?!) a documentary on the making of the film, audio commentary from the writers and director, an extended look at what made Tex Richman so mad at the Muppets in the first place, and much much more – including previously unreleased spoof trailers!

This is one you will no doubt watch over and over again for years to come as The Muppets are finally back in the spotlight with a host of cameos, great music, and humor for all ages. Jason Segel has finally brought our beloved friends back to where they belong, on the big screen and now into your homes with this amazing special feature packed set.

The Muppets hits shelves tomorrow, pick up your copy from Disney today!

If you listen to the podcast affiliated with this blog (You know Geek Out Loud the official blah, blah, blah) then you know that I love Christmas, and I love the Muppets. Well, this Wednesday night on NBC, the gang is back in an all new Christmas special. Lately, there have been a few viral videos showing up on the internet, Jason Segel is working on bringing a new Muppet Movie to the big screen, and now this. I couldn’t be happier.

An episode that I had more fun with than I probably should have. Derek from Starkville’s House of El and The Tenth Wonder Podcast AND Skynext joins the show for some talk and laughter about the Muppets. That’s right. An episode promised over seven months ago finally comes to fruition as hilarity and fun like only Kermit and the gang can offer is discussed.

It should be mentioned that immediately after recording the podcast, Derek and I learned of the passing of Kermit Love. Love was a long time friend of Jim Henson. So close were they as kids that Henson named his most famous creation, a felt frog with ping pong ball eyes, after Love. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Love’s family and friends.
