Trivia

After the success of The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992), Jim Henson Productions decided to cast Kermit and friends in another period piece. According to Kirk R. Thatcher, it was a toss up between a Treasure Island adaptation, or a take on King Arthur. See more »

Goofs

When Captain Smollett arrives at the dock to board the ship, he is piped "The Side" by Sam the Eagle. The Side would not be used for a Captain's rank. It is only used for the King or Queen, members of the Royal Family (when in uniform), foreign naval officers and Royal Naval Officers of Flag Rank (Rear-Admiral, Vice Admiral, Admiral, or Admiral of the Fleet).

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.

I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!!
11 February 1999 | by ruthie-6See all my reviews

I love this movie! It is SO funny! My sister and I can watch this movie over and over again because it's just more fun each time. The songs, Muppets, sets, and live acting make this movie a very fun experience for kids, as well as adults. Tim Curry is a riot as Long John Silver, and Kevin Bishop is an adorable actor with a beautiful singing voice. Give this movie a chance and you will love it (it comes on Disney at least twice a month!).
