Pirate Captain sets out on a mission to defeat his rivals Black Bellamy and Cutlass Liz for the Pirate of the year Award. The quest takes Captain and his crew from the shores of Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London.
On entering Blood Island port a sign can be seen saying "twinned with Weston Super Mare" which is a seaside town close to Bristol where Aardman Animation is based.
Pirate with Scarf:
Can we get there?
Pirate Captain: Yes, but unfortunately there's this dirty great sea monster in the way.
Charles Darwin: I think they just add those on the maps for decoration.
Pirate Captain: Is that a fact?
Pirate with Scarf: See? I told you!
The setting of this film is 1837 and Queen Victoria's look includes a small crown, however in real-life she didn't use it until 1870, after the death of his husband, Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. The small crown was created so she could dress as a widow.
Throughout the credits many of the props and posters that appear in the background are displayed, giving the audience a chance to spot some of the subtle jokes and puns they may have missed in the film.
