Heartwarming / Muppet Treasure Island

Go To

  • The scene where Kermit and Ms. Piggy sing "Love Led Us Here".
    • The scenes intercutting Kermit and Miss Piggy's duet with Silver and the pirates finding the treasure are quite heartwarming, considering how many years they spent looking for it.
    • The End Credits version is also very nice.
  • While it's never really explored in-depth, Jim's friendship with Rizzo and Gonzo does have some cute moments, such as when they affirm their True Companions status at the Benbow, followed by a collective "I Want" Song.

  • Mrs. Bluberidge gets a nice moment when she tells the boys not to worry about her and to run to safety while holding off the pirates, in contrast to her usual bossy and overbearing personality.
  • When Silver's crew turns on him:
    Silver: Run, lad! Save yourself!
    Jim: ..Why are you doing this?
    Silver: Because I like you, boy. I hope you didn't think I was lying about that.
    • And when Silver throws Jim's compass back to him before rowing away — after refusing to kill him, no less.
      Silver: Aw, hell, Jim. I could never harm you. You're honest and brave and true! You didn't learn that from me.
  • Sweetums turns out to be on the side of Jim and Cap. Smollett. Though it's got some elements of CMOF and CMOA to it as well.
    Smollett: Wh— Well, thank you, but aren't you supposed to be fighting against us?
    Sweetums: Are you kidding? I love you guys! Ahaha!
  • Mr. Arrow lives! If for no other reason that this is the only Treasure Island adaptation where he lives. The fact that he's played by Sam the Eagle doesn't hurt either.

How well does it match the trope?
