I received a complimentary Muppet Treasure Island and The Great Muppet Caper combo movie pack in exchange for this post. All opinions listed are my own.
Growing up, I have wonderful memories of watching The Muppets with my family. I can remember piling up on the floor in the evenings to catch all the hilarity that is the Muppet Show. In fact, all I ever wanted was to be Miss Piggy.
It was a great kid-friendly show with jokes that we all appreciated, too. When they started making movies, I was thrilled. The Muppet Movie is – to this day – one of my favorite movies ever. And now there is a combo pack with two of the great ones – Muppet Treasure Island and The Great Muppet Caper available on a Blu-Ray combo pack.
Muppets Treasure Island is a parody of the classic book Treasure Island. I loved seeing this classic come to life in a silly movie that followed the storyline of a book that I have read and enjoyed with my kids.
There was plenty of action to keep everyone entertained, and it was silly fun that the whole family enjoyed — one that we will keep around for a very long time.
The Great Muppet Caper, on the other hand, is another of my all-time favorites. When ace reporters head over the pond for an interview, Miss Piggy accidentally impersonates their interviewee, Lady Diana, when she spots Kermit and falls instantly in love.
As Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo try to get their story about the baseball diamond (an actual diamond in this movie), the farce continues with Miss Piggy being discovered as a fraud, the diamonds being stolen by Lady Diana’s no good brother and three models who work for her, and Miss Piggy being accused of the crime. With Kermit and gang to the rescue – including all sorts of other classic characters who happen to be staying at the Happiness Hotel with Kermit – hilarity ensues before, not surprisingly, all works out again in the end.
This is definitely a combo movie pack that you will want to add to your collection this year! If you think you like this combo pack, then you definitely need to get ready for Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted.
