USSR's violent farcical yet faithful adaptation of Stevenson's novel that combines animated sequences with live action parts. Two previous Ostrov sokrovishch films are edited together here. Return to Treasure Island is the cut US version.
During the opening credits, the Dutch character played by German actor Reiner Schöne is listed as 'Van der Brecken', which is the correct Dutch capitalization. But in the end credits he is always listed as 'Van Der Brecken', which is incorrect. See more »
I watched this show as a kid and was completely fascinated with it. I had never seen a Pirate movie with such memorable actors and had such an awesome story. So much so that I could even say it affected my life and interest in Pirate lore and history. Some time after that I found out many movie rental facilities had VHS copies of this show so I pursued them diligently. Years later I finally own a complete set. Unfortunately being rentals and 20 years old they are not in the best of shape. Disney Please, Please come out with this on DVD. They just don't make shows like this any more. Brian Blessed plays a true pirate, his acting makes you wonder if he wasn't a real pirate in a former life. The settings are dead on and a lot of time and effort went into this masterpiece. Pirates Forever!
