Blind Pew is a threatening pirate who hunts for Billy Bones in Muppet Treasure Island. As in the original Treasure Island, Pew is after the treasure map, accompanied by other former members of Captain Flint's crew. In contrast to the novel, where Pew's blindness enhanced his sinister qualities, his disability renders him a comic figure, grasping at a moose head and mistaking Jim Hawkins for a girl. He also speaks with a french accent.
Blind Pew visits the Admiral Benbow Inn to give Billy Bones the black spot, indicating that Bones will soon die. He later returns with a gang of pirates such as Brool, Black Dog, Mr. Cook, Wander McMooch and others, searching for Bones' treasure map. A lamp gets knocked over in the ruckus, setting the inn ablaze.
Pew is last seen wandering blindly through the flames, saying, "I think I smell something burning, no?" His fate is unknown.
He is also seen along with his friend, Black Dog in Muppets Most Wanted as a Gulag prisoner.
Blind Pew was performed by the late Jerry Nelson while his hands were operated by Bill Barretta.
