Those Scurvy Rascals coming to Nicktoons

piratesPirates, it seems, are still cool. At least, nautical-themed cartoons still seem to be all the rage. There's SpongeBob SquarePants, of course, and the upcoming The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack on Cartoon Network, which actually looks like it could be pretty good.

For the longest time ninjas were the cool thing, then it was pirates, and now I wonder who will be the next group to tickle our collective brain. I'm guessing either leprechauns or vikings, but I digress. Let's get back to pirates:

Those Scurvy Rascals is a British series consisting of 26 three and a half minute episodes that focus on a trio of pirates who steal pants rather than silver and gold. The show's Web site has some clips, which are just variations of the opening theme, but the goofy premise and the pirate theme should attract a young audience. Look for the shorts on Nicktoons this spring. Arrr.

I can't wait to check that out. Animation, pirates and British humor should make a winning combination.

When my kids were tiny they liked Veggie Tales, which can be overly preachy, but a song segment called "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything" was quite funny and the song still sticks in my head to this day. Just imagine singing vegetables sitting in easy chairs on the deck of a pirate ship singing about all the things they've never done. Should've been a series of its own.
