Pirattitude meets silly in these riotous tales of a jam-stealin’ Captain T Rex, Stig the stegosaurus, Dippy the diplodocus, Tricky the triceratops and Terry the pterodactyl and four adventure lovin’ kids Captain Flinn, Pearl, Tom and Violet who teach them a thing or two!
Two childhood passions – dinosaurs and pirates – come together with wit and cheek in this dino-pirate cartoon series. Based on the Award Winning picture books of the same name by mighty talented Author/Illustrator duo Giles Andreae and Russell Ayto.Irreverence, general silliness and flagrant disrespect for pirate dinosaurs wrapped around a message of simple empowerment: sometimes when you face your fear…you’ll notice it’s wearin’ a milk moustache (underneath that eye-patch…arrr).
