Brian Henson was nervous that the whole cast and crew would get motion sick as the ship rolled on the gimbals. He gave everyone seasickness pills for the first day of the shoot, and not only did the cast and crew not get seasick but they almost fell asleep on the job. See more »
When Billy Bones puts a flagon over Rizzo in the opening scene, you see a crew member's hand holding the flagon in place. See more »
I was Flint's first mate that voyage. Three days east of Tortola in the Caribbean, Flint knew an island. That's where we buried the treasure. Gold and blood, they were Flint's trademarks. He'd leave both behind him that day.

Probably the most underrated movie of the last CENTURY, "Muppet Treasure Island" is a must see for everyone. Kermit the Frog has a sword fight, for Pete's sake! What fun. The Muppets are hilarious and touching, as usual, the music is catchy, and Kevin Bishop and Tim Curry act and sing beautifully. I especially enjoy the mix of human and Muppet pirates, and the scene with the "visually challenged fiend."
