I am super excited to see The Great Muppet Caper and Muppet Treasure Island 2-Movie Collection is now available on Blu-ray™ for the first time. With these two movies, you absolutely get twice the laughter, twice the fun, and best of all; twice the Muppets! When my sister and I were little the Muppets aired on TV for the first time and we were hooked! My favorite was Kermit of course and the two old guys while my sister loved Animal and Beaker. When the movies started coming out, we collected every one of them on VHS and watched them often. When my first kid was born, we watched a lot of those movies over the years and I created another generation of Muppet lovers!
A treasure trove of hearty laughs is yours when two of the funniest, most action-packed Muppet movies of all time make their Disney Blu-ray debut in a 2-Movie Collection. From the special star-studded lunacy in Muppet Treasure Island to the jewel-heist hilarity of The Great Muppet Caper, these two classic comedy-adventures are packed with mirth, mayhem and, of course, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Animal, Fozzie, Gonzo and all your Muppet favorites.
Jim Henson’s whodunit heist-movie The Great Muppet Caper and the silly and swashbuckling high-seas adventure, Muppet Treasure Island,both restored and remastered, are loaded with unforgettable music and sparkling special effects. Two great movies plus a treasure trove of bonus features make the Collection the perfect holiday gift for Muppet fans and the entire family on December 10, 2013.
