When Ren, a young son of a lighthouse keeper, rescues a stranger foundering in the rocks near his home, he learns the man was an aide to his true father, a great king. Ren is given a magic compass crystal that guides him to a dragon who shows him that the only way to claim his heritage is to find the Thirteen Treasures of Rule. Unfortunately, a pirate ship captained by the evil Bloth is also aware of this treasure and is relentlessly pursuing Ren for it. On his side, Ren soon acquires companions like Ioz the Pirate, Tula the Eco-Mage and Nibbler the Monkey Bird who help him in his quest. That quest becomes all the more urgent when Ren learns that the Dark Water, a carnivorous form of water that consumes anything it snares, threatens to envelope and destroy his world and only the treasures he seeks can stop it.Written by

This show was originally released as "Dark Water". But after five episodes, executives at Hanna-Barbera (owned by Ted Turner at that time) decided to make the show less serious. So from episode six, "Andorus", onwards, the show became known as Pirates of Dark Water, and less serious, compared to the first five episodes. See more »
Great show, a bit corny, but a good plot that never gets resolved.
This was a great show!!
On first glance, it may seem a bit dorky and juvenile.
However, if one actually watches all the episodes in order, they have a good story to tell.
If you can ignore the blatant morality imposed on all American cartoons [can never kill the bad guy, even if he just tried to kill you for the 10th time], then this is a REALLY good cartoon. Serialized and everything.
The story continues from one episode to the next, yet abruptly stops without any conclusion. That is a real letdown and disappointment. Even Cartoon Network has commented on this in a humour commercial.
