    Can you please tell us if there's anything different from the DVDs? Like new bonus features? Cause, if there isn't, I'm not getting this.

    The mail came just before I had to head out to work, so I didn't get a chance to check it out other than looking at the box and disc lol.

    It does come with a UV digital download code so that's pretty cool.

    Also, I find it hard to believe that this special is just about twelve years old! I still remember watching this when it aired when I was in high school!

    It is #38 in Kids and Family Blu-Rays on Amazon, but obviously a muppet movie that is pretty unknown and not new is not going to get anywhere, but still good considering it is not a new release, also there are no new special features according to Amazon, this is just a medium transfer, but when DVDs are no longer made then I will probably buy the movie.

    If the Blu-ray has Inside Pepe's Studio then I'm buying it.

    I hope so, but I think it's unlikely.

    Nobody bought it yet? I'm just really curious about the HD. Is it worth buying if you've already got the DVD?

    Most are probably going to stick with their DVD, and some do not even like VMX, so there would be little reason to buy it besides juist upgrading to a better medium.

    I'm watching the Blu-Ray right now and I must say it looks amazing, there's so many pictures/posters hanging on the walls of the Muppet theatre which I hadn't noticed until now.

    The only special features it brings are deleted scenes and a blooper reel, no Pepe profiles.

    This is a first, I've never seen this before but there are no menus, as soon as you pop the disc inside the movie starts playing. if you press title/menu on your remote control you'll get a list of options (pause/chapters/subtitles/extras) on the side of the screen as the movie continues playing but still I'm glad with my purchase, the picture quality is really good.

    That is terrible, one of the reasons DVDs and Blu-Rays were made are to have everything in an organized fashion, they seriously demoted this Blu-Ray to no new special features or a start menu? This does not sound like a good buy if you alreadly have the movie.

    I guess it depends on what you want the Blu-ray for. I buy Blu-rays for better picture quality, and if it has extra bonuses, then that's a bonus!

    A lot of Blu-rays go right into the film, but most of the time you can get to a menu.

    Still it seems rather cheap to me, I did not expect any new special features, but at least a normal menu, it seems lazy and that NBC/Universal did not really care about the release.
