Robert Louis Stevenson's classic pirate tale takes on a life of its own in the hands of the hilarious Muppets! Muppet Treasure Island - the muppets' very first action adventure - is the fun-packed, music-filled, high-seas swashbuckler the entire family will enjoy over and over. It all begins when young Jim Hawkins inherits a long-lost map to a pirate's treasure. Jim hires the great ship Hispaniola where he meets the good Captain Smollett (Kermit the Frog) and the evil yet charming Long John Silver (Tim Curry). With adventure in their hearts and treasure chests of gold in their eyes, they set sail on the bounding main only to discover danger at every turn - including Benjamina Gunn (Miss Piggy), Treasure Island's worshipped love goddess, who's dressed to kill! Featuring a rollicking musical score by Academy Award-winning Hans Zimmer (1994, Best Musical Score, The Lion King), Muppet Treasure Island is a real gem that "explodes with wit, weirdness and wildly inventive fun" (New York Post)!
