Ahoy, matey! Get ready for hilarity on the high seas with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and all the Muppets in this exciting first-ever action-adventure, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic pirate tale. When young Jim Hawkins inherits a long-lost treasure map, he hires the great ship Hispaniola to seek his fortune. With the good Captain Smollett (Kermit the Frog) at the helm--and greedy Long John Silver (Tim Curry) at the heart of a dastardly plot--they set sail for adventure only to discover danger at every turn! Featuring a rollicking score by Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer (1995, Best Original Score, The Lion King), this fully restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of Muppet Treasure Island is a fun-packed, music-filled swashbuckler the entire family will enjoy over and over.

Plot Summary
Those irrepressible Muppets return, this time in a rollicking, musical adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic "Treasure Island."| When Billy, a young orphan, comes to possess a secret treasure map, he sets sail with mild-mannered Capt. Smollet (Kermit-the-Frog) and a host of assorted Muppets and humans in search of the wealth. And, as always when the Muppets are involved, the adventure is filled with songs, wacky humor, and irreverent silliness. That is, until one of the crew members, Long John Silver, reveals his dark, dastardly side, immediately putting the shipmates -- and possession of the coveted map -- in danger. Will our heroes tarnish Silver's wicked plans? And if so, will they ever find the treasure? And how will the amphibious Capt. Smollet react when he's reunited with ex-flame Benjamina Gunn (Miss Piggy)?

Professional Reviews

Sight and Sound
"...A fairly sophisticated affair, allowing the vivid charm of the original to work on its own level as well as providing fodder for parody, slapstick and the vaudeville revue formula of the Muppets' television shows..." 06/01/1996 p.47-8

USA Today
"...Kermit looks quite dashing in his captain's uniform, and Miss Piggy gives Dorothy Lamour a run for her sarong as a jungle goddess worshipped by wild boars..." -- 3 out of 4 stars 02/16/1996 p.4D

Entertainment Weekly
"...Curry makes a fine, flashy Long John Silver....A hoot..." -- Rating: B 03/22/1996 p.55

Variety
"...Pure delight, and constantly inventive and engaging..." 02/19/1996

Los Angeles Times
"...A wonderful picture for children, a work of considerable artistry and craftsmanship that ought to please many adults as well..." 02/16/1996 p.F12

Los Angeles Times 9 of 10
...a wonderful picture for children, a work of considerable artistry and craftsmanship that ought to please many adults as well... Its shrewdest inspiration is in casting Tim Curry as a smoothly villainous Long John Silver, a role he plays with a wicked twinkle in his eye.... The look that director Brian Henson and his enormous crew have given the picture is really something, like illustrations in a vintage children's book brought to life, the perfect setting for a raft of adorable Muppets. - Kevin Thomas
