Cartoon Synopsis:

A musical parody of Gilbert and Sullivan's operetta "Pirates of Penzance." The pirate ship (the Old Eyesore) is run by Captain Blah (pronounced Blaaaaaaaah) with first mate Smedley. In fact, Smedley is the only crew member, and he has too much work to do, so he goes off to shanghai a crew. He catches Chilly Willy and tries to force him to go to work- but Willy won't have any of it ("Don't like work. I go home now."), and all hell breaks loose. The captain tries to sleep, but Willy keeps shooting off cannons, crashing into things, rocking the boat, throwing Smedley overboard, etc. Finally, he fires the cannon right in the captain's face. This doesn't make him any too happy.
