Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Robert Louis Stevenson's classic adventure gets Muppetized in this 1996 delight, complete with savvy cameos, rollicking musical numbers ("Cabin Fever" is a showstopper), self-referential humor, and Miss Piggy as the Island's treasure-bedecked "queen of the warthogs." Purists offended by any of this are free to walk the plank. But if you're anything like the tour group that passes through one of the climactic scenes ("This is where they filmed Muppet Treasure Island," explains the guide) you'll be very impressed indeed. Kevin Bishop heads the human cast as plucky young Jim Hawkins, who comes into possession of a treasure map. Tim Curry is in his element as the scheming "professional pirate" Long John Silver. The Muppet cast includes Kermit as Captain Smollett, with Rizzo the Rat and the Great Gonzo shouldering most of the comedy. It wouldn't be a Muppet movie without a Kermit-and-Piggy love scene, and here the duo wind up tied together upside down, dangling over a cliff, where they share the tender ballad "Love Led Us Here." Funny and faithful (in its way) to Stevenson's story, this is a film families will long treasure.

    GREAT AND FUNNY

    Ok, so I gave it 4 stars on "intellectual stimulation". That might be an exaggeration, but I did see this movie TWICE in the theater! One of the funniest kid-friendly movies ever.

    A Muppet Classic

    This is one of the best Muppet movies. The Muppet spin on the classic story from Treasure Island is very entertaining. Tim Curry is fantastic as Long John Silver. We took our children to see this in the theater and bought the vhs version when it came out. Our oldest child wanted the dvd to watch with friends in the university dorm as a stress reliever during exams. For an evening of great family time you can't beat the Muppets!

    So funny

    This is one of the best muppet films I've seen in a long time. My husband and I have gotten so much laughter out of the jokes that have been on this film, since we both first saw it. He quotes them all the time! I really love the story and how it all links together in the great tradition of awesome muppet story telling. I will be forever grateful to Jim Henson for giving us such a wonderful gift of entertainment that many generations will be able to enjoy for years to come.

    What a wonderful film for kids!

    This movie was great! My 4 year old and 2 year old LOVE this movie. They watch it almost every day and have memorized all of the songs. This film is also for adults, and I find myself sitting down to portions of it every time it is on. Definitely a keeper.
