Trivia

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 producer and director 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 this movie, but showed up in the PC game based on this movie. 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.

User Reviews

One of the two best Muppet movies
14 February 2001 | by agwyvernSee all my reviews

Wow. Seems like people fall totally on one side or the other when considering this movie.

All I can say is that this is my favourite Muppet film (I'm in my 30's). It even edges out the Muppet Movie (just barely). I've found every other film to be annoying and forgettable, but not this one.

I've watched it about 30 or 40 times (the joy of having a young child who is hooked on one show :-)

I don't get tired of it. Fun songs, Tim Curry is enough to watch the film anyway, good plot.

Where else will you hear a name like 'big fat baby-eating O'Brian' ???
