Purely whimsical and funny design. Love the name of the studio...Cod Steaks.

Two ships spliced together. Brilliant.

Well I went to see Pirates - Band of Misfits on Saturday night. Quite a far fetch tale indeed. Set in the 1840's with Chas. Darwin and Queen Victoria as characters and the world's last Dodo bird ( ship's parrot).

A cameo role by Cutlass Liz as Caribbean Pearl or was it the other way around??? :huh:

A few good quips and one lines and action enough not to fall asleep but is is after all a claymation cartoon.

Don't forget your popcorn!

Loved it! Laughed the whole time. I was really surprised to see the depth of understanding of the current pirate types community. Everyone looked like a sailor type until the Pirate of the year nominees were shown - then they all were way over the top Hollywood type pirates. Way too funny!

"It's Ham Nite!"

Caught the matinee show with the family. Very entertaining!

Later, over lunch, I got to put the Four Yorkshiremen spin on how, when I was a lad, all we had in the way of claymation comedy was The Gumby Show which was seen irregularly on a medium-sized, black and white tv screen.

I was surprised at the mix of intellectual whimsy (as expected from the Wallace and Gromit folks), the nod to "pirate" films and lore, and the actual historical references. This is one I WILL buy when it comes out on DVD and look forward to seeing all the subtle stuff I missed in the theater.

If you haven't seen it, DO!
