They were slighted by the Oscars after their bid to host this year was ignored, but the Muppets have soldiered on, and now they're seeing their hard work pay off: today, the gang will get a star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame.

City News Service reports that the ceremony, which is scheduled for 11:30 this morning, will include speeches from Jason Segel, Lisa Henson (Jim Henson's oldest daughter), and Walt Disney Studios President Rich Ross.

Coincidentally, "The Muppets" is also becoming available on DVD, Blu-ray, Digital Download and On-Demand today.

Other non-human celebrities on the Walk of Fame include Bugs Bunny, Woody Woodpecker and Donald Duck. The Muppets will be the walk's 2,466th star.
