Muppet Treasure Island (1996)

The Muppet Christmas Carol had many followers, but the trick didn't work a second time: this further attempt to give the well-loved puppets a literary adaptation as a framework to play out their antics proved too ill-fitting. There's just too much plot to get through for sufficient opportunities to present themselves, and the spirit (and point) of The Muppet Show are nowhere evoked or recalled, though most of the familiar puppets (some, alas, with decidedly less familiar voices) pass through. Very poor songs and a surprisingly lacklustre human cast finish the job.
