Kids love this Muppet take on Robert Louis Stevenson's pirate classic, about the pirate Long John Silver (Tim Curry) and his takeover of a ship in order to track down buried treasure. His friend and then nemesis is earnest cabin boy Jim Hawkins (Kevin Bishop), who teams with the captain of the ship (Kermit the Frog) and several shipmates (including Gonzo, Ratso, and Fozzie) to foil Long John's nefarious plot. An odd subplot finds Captain Kermit stopping at a desert island to find his long-lost love (Miss Piggy--who else?). The Muppets have not lost their wild sense of humor, which works on enough levels to amply entertain children and their parents in imaginative fashion. --Marshall Fine
Kill Captain Smollett, and you'll have to kill me.
Kill Jim, and you'll have to kill me.
Kill Gonzo, and you'll have to kill me.
Kill Squire Trelawney and Mr. Bimbo, and you'll have to... negotiate strenuously.
Going somewhere, John-John?
Long John Silver:
Well, Master Hawkins, it seems that your little family has come together against me.
Gentlemen, this is a genuine bona-fide treasure map.
Oh, yes. Mr. Bimbo told me so.
Oh, Mr. Bimbo is the man who lives inside my finger. He is very smart. He's been to the moon.
I smell a bozo.
