This is largely a loose adaptation of Stevenson's well-known adventure novel involving animal pirates and human boy Jim trying to outwit them to get to Treasure Island. The film's clearly aimed for kids with the light-hearted comedy and bumbling antics of the animal pirates that Jim has to deal with throughout his adventure. Also for fans of Hayao Miyazaki, this was one of the films that he was involved in as a key animator and story consultant during his time at Toei Animation. But for the most part, this film is mostly worthwhile for younger audiences with the heavy emphasis on light-hearted comedy involved with the animal pirates.
