Product Description

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

Muppet Treasure Island was the fifth big-screen Muppet adventure and the second directed by the late Jim Henson's son Brian. Robert Louis Stevenson's tale has been filmed in a variety of ways, but this is the first to feature a Caribbean cruise for rats, pirates who bemoan their reputations by song and Billy Connolly. The Scottish comic is just about upstaged for high camp larks by Tim Curry, who as Long John Silver is clearly having the best fun since Rocky Horror. Newcomer Kevin Bishop rounds out the human cast, but of course what everyone wants to see is which of the Muppet gang plays which part. Kermit is Captain Smollett, with Fozzie as Squire Trelawney and Miss Piggy as long-lost love Benjamina Gunn, who's held captive by the Zanzibarbarians.

All the pirate movie trademarks are to be found: treasure maps, swordfights and the drinking of rum. But it's in the truly wonderful songs that this version comes alive. "Cabin Fever", "Sailing for Adventure" and "A Professional Pirate" are among the most dazzling pieces of puppet choreography ever attempted by Henson Productions. The subsequent Muppets from Space didn't manage to scale the same heights of hilarity, probably because it dared to reveal where Gonzo came from. So this is definitely the highlight of his and Rizzo's screen career.

On the DVD: Muppet Treasure Island includes the excellent 23-minute documentary "The Tale of the Story Beyond the Tale", heavily featuring Gonzo and Rizzo. The comic duo are all over this DVD: in the animated menus, introducing all the extras and featuring in the commentary from director Brian Henson. Between all these additional features there's plenty of new (and old) jokes as well as amazing insights into the technical wizardry at work. We also learn this movie featured the very first CGI Muppet (surely a contradiction in terms?) The movie hasn't arrived in the most pristine of transfers, but even in the sing-along feature for a couple of the best songs, the sound is still excellent. --Paul Tonks

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!

Without question this is my favourite Muppet film - a purely delicious treat, perfectly adapted for a nice and happy familial evening, when adults, children and pets sit around the screen to watch a good movie, have a healthy laugh and enjoy the life!

This being a Muppet production and also a surprisingly faithful adaptation of "Treasure Island" there is hardly any need to tell anything about the plot, except that this film was masterfully done and it is clear from the begininng that all those who worked on it had GREAT fun doing it! I believe that all Muppet's gang is present here and the characters were very skillfully distributed amongst the "Treasure Island" plot - and that really asked for some careful reflection, because honestly, it was not easy to fit in the Swedish Chef, not even talking about a place for Miss Piggy in a book notoriously devoided of female characters...))) But it was done, and it was done VERY WELL INDEED.

As you can expect from Muppets, this film is filled with jokes, puns and slapstick moments, but also with excellent songs. And Tim Curry portrays here an AMAZING Long John Silver as a redoubtable albeit NOT ENTIRELY evil pirate, a killer cook (pun very much intentional) and a Holy-Molly-Guacamole-Is-He-Good-Or-What singer of sea shanties - gosh, the VOICE this guy has!!

I LOVED this film, all our family spend a wonderful evening (even our chipmunks rolled on the floor laughing) and we are going to certainly see it again. Enjoy!

This is a truly brilliant film starring the Muppets and an all star cast with great performances from Billy Connoly and Tim Curry among others. The songs will have you laughing and wanting to join in (I especially enjoyed the singing heads at the beginning). The jokes are also on perfect Muppet standard. An all round good film for children and adults alike.
