GRADE: A-

Video • Those endearing cloth puppets of yesteryear return to the big screen in "The Muppets," a loving tribute to the charm and zaniness of Jim Henson’s creation that’s going to lure new young converts and re-ignite affectionate memories from old fans.

Co-writer and executive producer Jason Segel ("How I Met Your Mother") stars as an amiable guy who helps his Muppet brother and the rest of the Muppet gang in saving their old TV studio. Just like the Muppet movies before, this new entry is stuffed with star cameos and wonderfully eccentric songs (by Oscar winner and "Flight of the Conchords" co-star Bret McKenzie).

But the laughs don’t stop with the movie. The Blu-ray and DVD discs have more hilarious Muppet-mania in the faux making-of feature as well as the blooper reel, and the Muppets even work to entertain the audience when you just pause the movie.

It truly is the most sensational inspirational celebrational Muppetational movie for the whole family.
