Crazy Credits

During the opening credits, the Dutch character played by German actor Reiner Schöne is listed as 'Van der Brecken', which is the correct Dutch capitalization. But in the end credits he is always listed as 'Van Der Brecken', which is incorrect. See more »

Greatest Series!
8 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is unfortunate that such a great series has gone unnoticed. These films are extremely entertaining and I have fond memories of them growing up in the 80s. They are getting hard to find, and I look forward to the day when they are released on DVD. In the meantime I hold dear my VHS copies! A great cast, and a great story that I can watch over and over!

No one embodies the part of Long John Silver quite like Brian Blessed did in this series. The filming locations were great, and all around the makers of this series dotted the i's and crossed the t's.

A reminder of what Disney used to be capable of: shows with deep themes and adventure, without Lizzie Mguire Clones in the cast!
