These are the swashbuckling adventures of Captain Pugwash, narrated by the inimitable Jim Broadbent.
There's nothing more likely to prompt our hero into action than the prospect of treasure. So when the valiant cabin boy Tom sees a mound of yellow stuff aboard a nearby ship, the Captain sets off in hot pursuit.
Unfortunately, his villainous arch-enemy, the horrible Cut-throat Jake, is not far away. Will the Captain be trapped by Jake's dastardly plan?
