Scared the dillies out of me!
17 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I remember watching an episode of this when I was about 4 back in 1957 in black and white. There was a scene with a skeleton lying in a clearing with a cutlass through it's chest and a chorus of pirates chanting "Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum" To this day I remember being absolutely terrified and running out of the lounge into the kitchen where I hid behind my mum's legs! I think it has to be my earliest memory!

Watched the whole series in 1985 when it was re-shown on Saturday afternoons and loved Robert Newton as Long John, but my favourite character was Purity Pinker (Connie Gilchrist).
