Watch A Deleted Scene And Bloopers From 'The Muppets' Blu-Ray

Aside from a brief appearance by Miss Piggy and Kermit and a win for composer Bret McKenzie, this weekend's Oscar ceremony was tragically light on the Muppets. But in just a few weeks, fans will be able to get their fill of the gang when the film hits DVD and Blu-ray.

Today, we have a preview of some of the bonus features from The Muppets, including a making-of featurette, a blooper reel, and a deleted scene — plus a clip of Kermit and Glee star Darren Criss performing "Rainbow Connection" for E!'s pre-Oscars show, just because. Watch them after the jump.

Here's a bit of the blooper reel:

And a deleted scene featuring Honeydew, Beaker, and Gonzo:

  • And finally, here's that video of Criss and Kermit's "Rainbow Connection" duet. It won't be on the DVD/Blu-ray, but I'm posting here for the simple reason that it's cute and this seems like as good a time as any to share it with you.
