Product Description

Yo-Ho-Ho! join the Muppets on the high seas in their follow up to the successful adaptation of 'A Christmas Carol' in this version of the famous pirate adventure 'Treasure Island'. Tim Curry stars as Long John Silver alongside Gonzo, Rizzo, Kermit as Captain Smollet and Miss Piggy as Benjamina Gunn.

From Amazon.co.uk

Kids love Muppet Treasure Island, a take on Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate classic, about the pirate Long John Silver (Tim Curry) and his takeover of a ship in order to track down buried treasure. His friend and then nemesis is earnest cabin boy Jim Hawkins (Kevin Bishop), who teams with the captain of the ship (Kermit the Frog) and several shipmates (including Gonzo, Ratso, and Fozzie) to foil Long John's nefarious plot. An odd subplot finds Captain Kermit stopping at a desert island to find his long-lost love (Miss Piggy--who else?). The Muppets have not lost their wild sense of humour, which works on enough levels to amply entertain children and their parents in imaginative fashion. --Marshall Fine --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Muppet Treasure Island is a must if you like the Muppets!
The light hearted fun factor of the movie goes from begining to end, with stars Billy Connolly (who has a small but pivotal part), and Tim Curry doing a wonderful job.
This movie is good enough to buy on dvd even without the bonus materials, but with them it's even better. There is a good mini documentary about the making of the movie that shows you some of the sets, as well as small interviews with a few of the cast and crew. The sing along bonus feature is a bit of good fun for the children too. The movie has a feature comentary by director Brian Henson that is informative and pleasant to the ear. This movie also has plenty of good one liners, and the "Cabin Fever" scene is great!
I have been wanting to buy this movie for years and now that I have I am not dissapointed. I am happy with the sound and picture quality and the only drawback for me is that Disney didn't put it out on dvd sooner.
This is definately a movie that has appeal even after you have seen it a number of times.

It was great to see all your old Muppet friends in a classic. The singing adds a new dimension to the story. Not that "Sixteen Men on a Deadman's Chest" is not good in its self. And the beautiful Benjamina Gunn added a more romantic touch. By the way if you enjoy the singing skulls you may also want to view the movie "8 Heads in a Dufflbag" with George Hamilton. The song "Cabin Fever" will have you singing along.

Talk about sophisticated dialog.

Benjamina Gunn says, "You left me standing at the altar!"

Captain Smollet replies, "I was on a ship headed for Zanzibar. I got cold feet."

Benjamina Gunn, "You're a frog! You're supposed to have cold feet!"

Tim Curry (being himself) was an excellent Long John silver. The only other film where he exceeded this is in the film "Oscar" with Sylvester Stallone.

This movie was nominated for both Golden Satellite Award and Young Artist Award.

No matter how you CUT it this is a worth while movie to own.

All I can say is WOW! this is one of the best films I have ever seen, none stop comedy from start to finish, especially in the character of clueless Morgan.
The whole muppet cat is magnificent. From this film I feel i have learn't a valuable lesson: the best thing about being a pirate is you don't have to wear a suit.

I never laugh so much as when I watch this film. I have seen it endless times now and can never get bored with it. Forget children, this one is for me.

Treasure Island getting the Muppets overhaul. It just has to be worth it. Funnily enough though, like the other great avetnure they have had with Dickensian London, they stick to the story, but just add their own brand of mirth.

For me, there isn't a best part as it is all just brilliant. But perhaps the songs are the best. Good old Hans Zimmer, he of Pirates fame and others. The entrance of Miss Piggy as Benjamina Gunn for example, is sheer class.

Get your laughing muscles ready for a sensation they aint had in a while when you buy this one, for it is GREAT!

The Muppets always manage to bring a refreshing new perspective to literary classics, which in this case is 'Treasure Island', a book by R. L Stevenson, which children may previously have found boring if they had tried to read it or with older adaptations of the novel. The Muppets always manage to make it fun and enjoyable with a good selection of songs, and general good humour.
When Jim Hawkins is given an ancient pirate treasure map by his dying friend he decides that as he has nothing else to do he will get a boat and a crew, and go in search of the treasure that is marked with an X. While on the ship Jim meets Long John Silver, the one legged cook, and the two become friends. However him and many more of the crew may not be all that they first appear to be, and unfortunately for Jim he might find out the hard way.
The legendary Kermit the frog has the lead as far as the muppets go as the captain of the ship, with his other half, Miss Piggy who left and came to live on the island when Kermit left her standing at the altar. The rest of the gang also appear including, Rizzo the rat, Gonzo, Fozzy the bear, to name but a few. Tim Curry has the role of Long John Silver and is very good in this role. Kevin Bishop co stars as Jim Hawkins the young boy who was given the treasure map by his old friend Billy Bones, who was played by comedian Billy Connelly.
There are a number of nice extras on the DVD itself including: a documentary about the making of the movie with interviews from certain members of the cast and crew. There is a feature length commentary from the director Brian Henson which are always very interesting, and finally a sing along bonus that is wonderful for the kids.
