And today I'm treating them to a freakin' CLASSIC ...
Yoinked from the wiki ...
"Muppet Treasure Island is the fifth feature film to star The Muppets. It was released in 1996 and directed by Jim Henson's son Brian Henson. It was one of many film adaptations of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.
Similarly to the earlier Muppet Christmas Carol, the key roles were played by human stars, with the Muppets in supporting roles. Tim Curry played Long John Silver and Kevin Bishop played Jim Hawkins. Muppet Kermit the Frog played Captain Abraham Smollett, Fozzie Bear was Squire Trelawney, Sam the Eagle was Mr. Samuel Arrow, and Miss Piggy portrayed the gender-flipped castaway "Benjamina" Gunn. Following their success as the narrators of The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Great Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat appeared in specially-created roles as Jim Hawkins' best friends.
Muppet Treasure Island received positive reviews. Rotten Tomatoes reported that 68% of critics gave positive reviews, The film was also a commercial success grossing $34,327,391 during its theaterical run surpassing the grosses of The Muppet Christmas Carol, The Muppets Take Manhattan and The Great Muppet Caper. The film has been considered a major cult hit and leaves its fans wondering if there is possibly a better film.
Hormel Foods Corporation, makers of Spam, sued the film production company for using the name Spa'am for one of the film's wart hog characters. Their suit was defeated on September 22, 1995. The judge dismissed it after a trial for failure to prove damages, noting, 'one might think Hormel would welcome the association with a genuine source of pork.'"

The following picture I found on the internet - they are NOT my kids. Just want to make that clear.
Might make it a double feature, as usual. While I was looking for Muppet Treasure Island for free to show you guys (I didn't find it, sorry) I found a great free copy of La Bamba. That's some old school shit right there. I LOVE that damn movie!
