Pirate Up the Captain

I suspect that some of the people who make my Breakfast Cereal know about today. Limited Edition Piratey shapes were in my menu this morning.

The Captain can be pirated up with darker eyes and jaggedy teeth. ... or with special piratey shapes in the box.

Poop Deck Pappy

"Who hid the halibut on the poop deck?" is an actual song title. For those who wonder about the netting on the bow of a pirate ship... I think that I can hold it until we reach shore.

Demmed Bones Pyrate Tutor

An early sketch for the Latin Tutor for Fuentez. My Editor Han has since successfully lobbied for a more skeletal looking man. He goes by the name Damned Bones. His family name is Bones, and this character is named after an actual historical person who's full name was "Without Christ You Shall Be Damned Bones" which imho is an excellent pirate name.

Uncle Donald in danger

I was not entirely happy with my warm up sketches today of Huey and Louie. Dewey was to be laughing maniacally, but I think that I need to do several more duck studies before I make myself happy with the nephews in pirate garb.

The pirate on top is the son of a famous pirate. His name is Fuentes de France. On his birthday on the year in which this sketch was taken he was given a Latin tutor named "Damned Bones". He likes his present from the previous year far better.
