Accompanying them is slightly dim Squire Trelawney (Fozzie Bear) and the forthright Captain Smollett (Kermit), who hasn't been to sea since his most trusted friend, Jim's father, was killed by pirates on a ship under his command. Also aboard is the mutinous Long John Silver, whose outwardly friendly manner enthralls the impressionable young Jim. Unbeknownst to all, Silver knows of the map and will stop at nothing to get it. When the motley crew arrives at "Treasure Island", Silver and his men steal the map and take Jim hostage.
