Muppet Treasure Island


muppettreasureislandOrphan Jim Hawkins (Kevin Bishop) and his friends Gonzo and Rizzo get their hands on a map that will lead them to a treasure thatā€™s been buried on a remote islandā€¦ The success of The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) resulted in another adaptation of a classic story for the felt creaturesā€™ fifth movie. As expected, the adventure is interspersed with funny and engaging musical numbers, especially one hilariously silly act that makes fun of cabin fever. Gonzo and Rizzo are as amusing as in the last movie and Tim Curry an ideal Long John Silverā€¦ but Kermit is almost overshadowed.
