Trivia

On 13 September 1991 national British newspaper 'The Guardian' claimed that certain characters names could be viewed in a vulgar context (e.g. Master Bates and Seaman Staines). Such character names did not form any part of the series and creator John Ryan successfully won retractions and settlements from both 'The Guardian' and another British newspaper, 'The Sunday Correspondent', which also printed a similar story.

Not a dirty show
14 June 2000 | by (New York City, NY) – See all my reviews

This was a decent show, but its the rumors that are circulating many years later that will be it's all-time fame. Urban legend has it that the characters in this series had dirty names that were beyond their time and went virtually unnoticed until people grew up and looked back on it. Too bad the real character names were Capt. Pugwash, Master Mate, Pirate Barnabas, Pirate Willy, & Tom the cabin boy.
