    Well, as planned, I headed out to the magical world of Walmart bright and early this morning to get my copy. I ended up with the Wocka Wocka value pack. I was originally going to get the version with the finger puppets until I saw it was the same price. I decided that for my $5 I'd rather have the digital copy than some finger puppets, even if they looked surprisingly good for how cheap I'm sure they are. Not bad likenesses, actually!

    Anyway, just got done watching the film and BOY am I glad to be able to watch it anytime I want now. It was so great to see it again now and I can't wait to peruse the bonus features later. (Plus, I finally got to confirm via subtitles that Walter does indeed yell "heavy cake!" instead of "someone to take" during Life's a Happy Song. I thought so! :p )

    Lol, I did the same thing. Went intending to purchase the finger-puppet version as well as the Wocka Wocka pack, but it was my opinion that the puppets looked way off, ha ha. :D That made it easier for me to save some cash! Plus I used DMR' coupon to save myself 5 bucks. ;) I'm extremely glad I went in first thing though, there were only 3 copies left!! Plus, as I was looking for it, the employees were building a Muppets display, and they said they'd hold it for me when it comes time to take it down, yay!

    I'll probably download my digital copy later on today, can't wait to watch my Muppets on the iPod during my sleepless nights!! :) Plus, since I bought The Lion King 2 on bluray over the weekend, I unlocked the FREE (pay shipping only) bluray offer on Disney Movie Rewards, got Dinosaur on its way to our collection, finally!

    Okay, just hadta share my Muppets Bluray Release Story 2012, now I'm off to watch it for the first of many home viewings!!! I've skipped over all the deleted scenes spoilers, those and all the extras are gonna be so awesome to behold!! :D

    I got the blu-ray/DVD combo pack. I didn't see a need to have another copy of the soundtrack.

    I watched the movie, the deleted scenes, and the documentary. They're all good (I already knew the movie was). I haven't listened to the commentary yet.

    I wonder why they needed to include the "extended telethon". They could have just put the deleted scene that came after the telethon. Didn't notice anything else different about the telethon opening. But that end scene from the extended telethon opening sure is cool. I guess they did green screen/editing, but it looks so much like they didn't. I kept expecting additional characters to show up and learn that they missed their cue in the opening. And they mentioned Thog by name!

    The missing verse from Life's a Happy Song wasn't what I was expecting. I had read that there was a scene cut where somebody couldn't keep up with the dancing. Was expecting that, but it didn't appear.

    As we know, a number of deleted scenes were not included. I noticed some of the celebrities at the telethon (including Judd Hirsh) were basically glorified extras. I was expecting them to have deleted scenes where they did something, but we didn't. But I wonder if any celebrities were desperate enough to just be extras in this movie.

    I'm pretty sure that JG character in the documentary appears in the movie, during the telethon opening and other scenes. I saw something that referred to him as a new character.

    I would, but he won't. I'm sure he'll get it for me later this week. But I'm having Muppets withdrawals so it better be soon!
