Muppet Treasure Island

Musical reworking of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic tale, in which the Muppets take to the high seas in search of buried treasure.

Young Jim Hawkins is given a treasure map by a mysterious sailor, and sets sail with his friends the Great Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat. But among the crew is the mutinous seadog Long John Silver, who has his own plans for the loot, and they end up being kidnapped by cannibals.

Will Captain Smollett come to their rescue?
