Editorial Reviews

Get creative and add to your Disney DVD collection with this great Muppet Tin Two Pack Exclusive Bundle. Each tin includes a sticker sheet, notepad, two pencils and a pencil sharpener all featuring your favorite Muppets.

Muppet Treasure Island:
Ahoy, matey! Get ready for hilarity on the high seas with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and all the Muppets in this exciting first-ever action-adventure, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic pirate tale. When young Jim Hawkins inherits a long-lost treasure map, he hires the great ship Hispaniola to seek his fortune. With the good Captain Smollett (Kermit the Frog) at the helm -- and greedy Long John Silver (Tim Curry) at the heart of a dastardly plot -- they set sail for adventure only to discover danger at every turn! Featuring a rollicking score by Academy Award(R) winner Hans Zimmer (1995, Best Original Score, The Lion King), this fully restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of Muppet Treasure Island is a fun-packed, music-filled swashbuckler the entire family will enjoy over and over.

The Great Muppet Caper:
Stop the presses! The crime of the century has occurred, and investigative reporters Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are out to crack the case in this song-filled, star-studded extravaganza directed by the legendary Jim Henson. Our heroes arrive in London to interview Lady Holiday (Diana Rigg), a high-fashion designer whose priceless diamond necklace has just been stolen. But when Kermit mistakes lovely receptionist/would-be model Miss Piggy for her aristocratic employer, it's love at first sight. Unfortunately, Lady Holiday's scheming brother (Charles Grodin) is also wooing the sultry swine -- so he can frame her for another brazen jewel heist! Now it's up to Kermit and his Muppet pals to clear Piggy's name and catch the real culprits. Packed with music, remarkable production numbers, and hilarious cameo performances (including John Cleese, Peter Falk, Jack Warden, Robert Morley, and Peter Ustinov), this restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of The Great Muppet Caper is the wackiest story ever told!

The musical numbers are also pretty great.

Bought for my grandkids to enjoy... they love the muppets so I'm sure they'll have a blast with both of these movies.

Finally have my favorite Muppet movie (Treasure Island) in widescreen format and in Blu Ray!

Just to clarify, this is a 3 disc set. The first disc is a bluray containing both movies. The second and third discs are DVD, each containing one of the two movies. Thought this might help somebody if the DVD versions come in handy for playing somewhere else, like in the car.

This review originally appeared on MiceChat

I’ve always loved the Muppets. Ever since I was a kid, I’ve watched them, be it on TV for Muppet Show re-runs or in the theaters for their latest round of movies.

There is a certain divide, though, between the films. They were original stories at first, taking the Muppets on great adventures with them as the focal point. But then, the focus shifted, and they started adapting great literary works, and were pushed to secondary roles, with humans in the lead.

This blu-ray combines two films, one from each of those eras, and is quite a strange pairing. However, in my mind, The Great Muppet Caper And Muppet Treasure Island: Of Pirates & Pigs 2-Movie Collection [Blu-ray] works.

Starting with the earlier of the two films, The Great Muppet Caper was always one of, if not my absolute, favorite of the original Muppet films. I had a VHS of it as a kid that I wore out. For those of you who have never seen it before, Kermit and Fozzie play twin brothers, which is one of the movie’s running jokes, who also happen to be reporters. Gonzo is their photographer who comes along for the ride. While on assignment in London investigating the jewel heist of Lady Holiday, Kermit runs into Miss Piggy, who tricks him into thinking that SHE is Lady Holiday. Naturally, Muppet hilarity ensues. The film may not be one of the greatest stories ever told, but it is fantastic. It’s also the ONLY Muppet film that Jim Henson himself directed. The musical numbers are also pretty great.

The film’s transfer to blu-ray is absolutely stunning…so much so that I was kind of surprised by how good it looked. It even sounds fantastic! Not bad for a film that old, I have to say.

I purchased this set because I remembered Muppet Caper as a child and really wanted to get my hands on my long time favourite movie. It was just as i remembered and what made it even better I had Treasure Island to see for the first time. It comes with 2 tins filled with muppet stickers, note pad, pencils and sharpener (i gave these to my 2 kids...they love it.) Great purchase!!

Jim Henson was a creative genius, full of humor and inventive story-telling, delighting children and adults alike. I was as addicted to Sesame Street as my three-year-old son was. Caper was always one of my favorites but I didn't care for Treasure Island, perhaps because Piggy doesn't show up until halfway through the movie and the story is too well-known to be surprising even with Muppets. Therefore, I jumped at the chance to have Caper in blu-ray. The opening credits of Caper told me this was no 'remastered' job - this was the transfer of an old movie by people who had no respect for the love and care that Henson put into everything he did and then had the gall to call it a blu-ray. It may be an improvement but no one sat down and did the kind of job that this film deserved, even if they had to clean it up frame by frame. Being shoved into a two-fer like 'Atlantis' should have clued me in. Treasure Island is a better transfer, probably only because it is a newer movie. And I gained a new respect for it watching Tim Curry have a ball as Long John Silver (see him in CLUE for the totally manic performance he is capable of). It used to be that Disney was known as the best studio for demo-quality blu-ray (Tangled is an example), but the last year they have rushed out second tier movies (Robin Hood, The Sword in the Stone), made their millions, laughed all the way to the bank and suckered collectors like me to pay for second (or third or fourth) rate blu-ray. They should rename themselves the Evil Cartoon Company, formerly known as Disney.

This set is proof positive of two things:

1) Just because it's a Blu-ray disc doesn't mean the content is of great quality, and
2) While Disney typically does a wonderful job of remastering classic movies when releasing them on Blu-ray, they also occassionally don't seem to care about quality whatsoever.

I've always loved the Great Muppet Caper. To me, the original Muppet Movie and it's follow-up, the Great Muppet Caper were the two best Muppet features. So I was looking forward to finally having it on Blu-ray. I admit that I had not previously sen Muppet Treasure Island, but I was looking forward to finally seeing that as well.

First, we watched MTI, having not seen it before. While the video was of OK quality (although certainly nothing spectacular), the audio quality was terrible. It's as if when they remastered it, they didn't realize the vocal tracks were not at the same level/volume. The music and sound effects were fine, but it was difficult to hear the actors' lines whenever there was also music playing and/or sounds effects. The only time we could here the conversations was when there was no music or sound effects. And even then, we had to turn up the volume on our system quite high.

Next, we watched TGMC. While the sound seemed somewhat OK on this one, the video quality was just terrible. It wasn't even DVD quality. It literally looked like we were watching an old VHS tape of the movie.

So if you're looking to "upgrade" your existing copy of both/either of these movies from your existing DVD copies (or even VHS tapes, for that matter), don't bother. It's just not worth it. You're not going to get anything close to Blu-ray HD quality. The only way I can recommend purchasing this set is if you don't have the movies at all, and you're willing to settle for a low-quality copy of them.
