Trivia

After Jim Henson's death, Rowlf the Dog was not recast for several years, as he was considered the character closest to Henson's actual personality (even more so than Kermit the Frog). In this film, Rowlf appears, but does not speak, in the first scene set in the Tavern. See more »

Goofs

When the "Cabin Boys" first meet Long John, he tells them the story of how he lost his leg. We then see it tied behind his back. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Billy Bones: 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.

Not Their Best, But Still A Decent Muppet Movie
25 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I keep thinking these "Muppet Movies" are going to be just for little kids but I am usually pleasantly surprised that I enjoy most of them, too. In this one, there were a lot of modern-day expressions and referrals to things that only adults would appreciate.

Meanwhile, the special-effects with the puppets is the normal high-quality. Actually, this was my first look at a Muppet film, although I've reviewed several others, so I was downright amazed at what I saw. After I had seen others, and then viewed this one again, it wasn't as appealing. It was okay, but I liked a few others better. As I found with subsequent episodes, Rizzo The Rat and The Great Gonzo had the best lines even though Kermit and Miss Piggy have always been the best-known of these puppet characters. I've never been a fan of Miss Piggy so I was glad to see her with a minor role here.

Tim Curry played "Long John Silver" and he was entertaining, as was young Kevin Bishop as "Jim Hawkins." The songs were okay: not outstanding, but not bad. There weren't that many and they were brief enough not to interrupt the flow of the story. The movie is a little loud the first 20 minutes but settles down after that.
