Did You Know?

In the original script, Polly Lobster's role was played by a sultry female parrot who flirted with Silver (a similar character had been used in a sketch of "The Muppet Show" (1976) starring John Cleese as a pirate). When this got "too weird", according to Brian Henson, she was replaced with a male parrot named Stevenson (after Robert Louis Stevenson) who pointed out the changes made from book to movie. Stevenson was replaced by Polly Lobster for the film, but later showed up in the PC game based on the film.See more »

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.

The Muppets, we just got to love them !

Unfortunely, the same can´t be said about many of their movie adventures. Most of them were nothing more than a parade of has been actors and ex-television stars, mixed with a couple of Muppet jokes, singing moments and uninteresting plots. Somehow the idea of mixing the Muppets with real locations and images never worked that great, and so. to me at least, most of the movies got always to a point when i was just bored of watching them. I always found them a bit too long. Even when i was a kid i thought like that.

I still love the Muppets on tv, that backstage setting was a brilliant creation and the perfect home to those characters and situations. Even the new television series are good. So i always wished for some good movies with the Muppets, but that never seemed to happen.

Untill a couple of years ago, a new one came out. That Christmas one, about the classical story of the Ghosts of Christmas Past and the old Scrooge. This movie restored my faith on the Muppets. I loved it, and this time i thought it was too small. I wanted more ! And i loved that cute sad little bunny hero !

Anyway, then i bought this new one, MUPPETS TREASURE ISLAND, and i think it´s an absolute masterpiece, on what Muppets are concerned.

All the "problems" the other movies had are gone, and this finaly looks like a great Muppets movie. No more dull scenes, no more boring guests, now it´s got a great storytelling rithm and the perfect pace of a real movie.

Funny story, great gags particulary the ones with the rats, fantastic landscapes and scenery, cool songs, and good special effects. It even has Tim Curry in it and a great actor always come in handy. No one plays a fun villain like him.

Oh, and it has Miss Piggy, of course. (Sorry Miss, it won´t happen again i almost forgot about you... SPLAP ! Ouch !....) :-)

So im glad this movie was made, and i can´t wait to see the next one.

So to all of you who think the Muppet movieas are boring to follow, go and see this and forever change your mind. And you so called cool guys, let go of that macho crap atitude, and don´t be afraid to watch a movie filled with puppets. Don´t worry, this is nothing like Sesame Street. (thank god !) :-)

A great family movie if ever there was one. A great movie.

I want more !
