** And even those audience members who've never read or heard about ''Treasure Island'' reach that conclusion upon seeing Tim Curry. Then there's Long John's one leg and Billy's previous warning about the one-legged man and not to mention the occational ominous music...

** Jim, Gonzo and Rizzo when they overheard that Long John caused Arrow's death.
** Also when they saw the pirates captured Jim just when they plan to leave Long John and his crew on the island. Though it wouldn't do much good since other pirates are still on his ship and outnumber Smollet's crew.



** Big Fat Ugly Bug-Faced Baby-Eating O'Brien. But we only see her once. She [[VocalDissonance has one of the deepest, manliest voices in the cast]].

Added DiffLines:

* LeaveNoWitnesses: The intro shows Captain Flint and a band of pirates lugging several treasure chests up on Treasure Island to bury them. When they chests are in the pit and the pirates start to cover them, Flint draws his guns on his crew and fires. The intro song ends simultaneously on the fitting line "Dead men tell no tales!"

* WorriedForTheWrongReason: When Captain Smollett vents his frustration on his officers for having hired "the seediest bunch of cutthroats, villains, and scoundrels I have ever seen," and he learns that Mr. Bimble (who lives in Young Squire Trelawney's finger) had hired them with help from Long John Silver, Smollett's response is "A cook? And a guy who lives in a bear's finger? I'm beginning to worry about this voyage."

* BadBoss: Captain Flint. In the opening of the film, he has his crew bury his treasure on a deserted island and, while they're fight in the middle of it, he kills them all in order to keep the location a secret. Pretty dark for a Muppets movie.

* GirlsNeedRoleModels: Subverted; the movie increases the story's complement of female characters by gender-flipping Ben Gunn, but then it's Miss Piggy, who isn't a good role model for anybody.
