They travel aboard the Hispainiola, which is captained by Kermit the Frog. On board is the peg-legged cook, Long John Silver (Tim Curry), who is really a pirate and has his own plans for the treasure. Long John and his pirates take Jim hostage and set off in pursuit of the treasure, which just happens to be in the possession of Miss Piggy, and, of course, all ends well.
