Ex­tra good­ies in­clude an An­i­ma­tion Show­case of “Fu­ture-Drama” Act 1, au­dio com­men­taries for all episodes, bonus episode “Hol­i­days of Fu­ture Passed,” deleted scenes and gallery with com­men­tary, Easter Eggs, “Greet­ings, Ju­nior Scien­teers!,” live ta­ble read of “Thank God, It’s Dooms­day,” “Liv­ing in the Mo­ment,” two sketch gal­leries and a spe­cial “Pranksta Rap” lan­guage fea­ture. The three-disc Blu-ray set ($59.99) tacks on two more bonus episodes: “Bart to the Fu­ture” and “Lisa’s Wed­ding.” To para­phrase Prof. Frink, this set has the hoyven, the mayven and the whole gah­hoyvee thing!
