Four children (the Swallows) on holiday in the Lake District sail on their own to an island and start a war with rival children (the Amazons). In the meantime, a mysterious man on a houseboat accuses them of a crime they did not commit.
The book's character, Titty, was based on a real girl who used it as a nickname. She got the nickname from the poem about "Titty and Tatty Mouse". The filmmakers decided to change the name to the other mouse.
No wonder he's single. Even his own sister finds him impossible. Who knows what's going on in that boat? Something fishy, and I don't mean with nets.
Mr Jackson (Harry Enfield) is frequently shown with a pipe in his mouth yet the pipe never appears to never be lit as we do not see him puffing on the pipe or smoke arising from it. Whilst this could be said to show a 21st century sensibility towards smoking in a childrens film we do however see a character smoking a cigarette at Portsmouth railway station earlier on.
