Yogi Bear out on Blu-Ray and DVD today

Special Features:

The movie is only eighty minutes long, so even on a BD25 there is plenty of room left over for extras. The first is a “Yogi Bear Mash-up,” about three minutes with the TV and movie incarnations of the character, comparing the old with the new. Next is a series of features exclusive to the Blu-ray disc, starting with an interactive map tour of Jellystone Park in high definition, where you click on an area of the park and then click on an item or location within the area, which takes you to a brief featurette about the item.

Here, you’ll find out about Dan Aykroyd and Justin Timberlake voicing Yogi and Boo Boo, more about Ranger Jones’s Jellystone Park and Ranger Smith’s love song to Rachel, more about the Roaring Rapids and Basket-nabbers and so forth. After that is an interactive game called “Are You Smarter Than the Average Bear?” that you can play at three different difficulty levels; followed by a new Looney Tunes cartoon, “Rabid Rider,” with Road Runner and Coyote, beautifully animated and very fun.

In addition, you’ll find eight scene selections; trailers and promos at start-up only; English, French, Spanish, and Portuguese spoken languages; French, Spanish, and Portuguese subtitles; and English captions for the hearing impaired.

Finally, because this is a Combo Pack, you get the high-definition Blu-ray disc, a standard-definition DVD, and a digital copy for iTunes and Windows Media (the offering expiring March 20, 2012). The two discs come in a flimsy Eco-case, further enclosed in a handsomely embossed slipcover.
