    My favorite moment in FTB, even if it's a little sad, is when Big Bird is leaving and Maria yells, "Don't forget, Big Bird, we love you!" The music is so melancholy at that moment. ::sniff::

    Any old footage would have to still exist, and not be tossed aside. Remember, these movies were made before the idea of keeping footage for special features existed.... why does a film like, let's say Van Wilder 2: Rise of Taj has hours of footage? Because the film is made into a DVD before they even release it... so they hang on to all the idiotic bloopers where everyone flubs their lines and falls over stuff and every single scene that didn't need to be seen no matter what.

    All I'm saying, new special features, old special features... as long as they take this directly from the film print, and not just some video tape they had lying around, I'll be happy.

    I wonder what Elmo would say in an interview considering his small part in the film:

    "::sigh:: All Elmo did was stand in a window at the end! Elmo coulda be a contender!" Hehe

    today is the first i've heard of this release. i will gladly replace my old full frame copy with this new remastered widescreen copy. i'm not really expecting much on the bonus features as it's a single disc and amazon is selling it for 13.99 .

    oh yeah...and i wouldn't really even mind if elmo in grouchland was never mentioned again and possibly erased from existence. no offense to the elmo lovers, but when i saw that movie i wanted to cry. far from the quality of follow that bird.

    The movie trailer is for Viewing on Hulu.
  7. Let us not forget, though, how incredible the Special Edition Emett Otter DVD is (sans the sans of Kermit :) ) for a whopping price of only $9.99.

    And we already know Follow that Bird will deliver on the Frog!

    Sitting there quitely on the corner, waiting for his paycheck for the photo shoot... Let's just say "Product Branding."

    I mean, look at the cover of "Sing Yourself Sillier at the Movies"...

    Cookie Monster is only in one song for 2 seconds... and yet, he's on the cover behind Telly (look very closely at Telly's hair... you can clearly see that Cookie was almost photo retouched into the scene).


    I love this movie I hope to get this for christmas!

    I passed on the original DVD since it was foolscreen, but I love the movie dearly (The grouch diner might just be one of the funniest scenes in a kids' film) so I will definitely pick this up.

    Warner Bros. generally is very good about doing double dips on their movies that improve on the original release. Sony generally isn't known for that, so I doubt a better release of Elmo in Grouchland is in the cards.

    I guess the reason so many cool things are being released after Christmas is because companies figure the public is eager to spend whatever Christmas money they might have been given by generous relatives. Hehe ;)

    Cough Cough... except for the original TMNT films.... all we're getting for the 25th anniversary is a cardboard slip cover... no Digital Copy, no behind the scenes... nothing.

    Then why re relesaes it? I would have thought that Waner would have got all the rights to the turtles after doing there lattest movie. Anyways that was way off topic. I can't wait to see this movie once agin.

    Because it's another opportunity for the DVD to get noticed and people to buy it.
