CAPTAIN PUGWASH - PART ONE...



As most of you will know, JOHN RYAN's CAPTAIN
PUGWASH first appeared in The EAGLE, lasting for 19
issues before having a rest until his days as a TV star.

So here are the first 10 strips - the remaining 9 will
appear in an upcoming post.  Incidentally, do you know
why pirates are mean?  Because they just Aaaarrr!

Are these scanned from the original comics?
Or are they pirate copies?

Oh, you're a proper 'Jolly Roger' today, JP.

"As most of you will know..." - not me, Kid. I thought Captain Pugwash was created for TV. I've watched a couple of old episodes on YouTube - but it's not true that the show featured characters called Roger the cabin boy and seaman Staines.

Kid said...

And you'd have known both these facts if you'd read my previous post on ol' Puggy, CJ. You must've been galivantin' about on other, lesser blogs, you impetuous lad.

Kid, I just typed Captain Pugwash into the search box and I've read that other post - you indeed mention him first appearing in the Eagle but there's no mention of the supposed Roger and Staines.

I remember discussing it in the comments section of some post or other, not sure if it was that one. It's always possible that the person pulled his comments and I then deleted my response to them (a once regular commenter went off in the huff), but I suspect that the comments are still on the blog somewhere. When/if I find them, I'll let you know where they are.

It took me a LONG while to realise that Captain Pugwash and Harris Tweed were both from the same hand... Daft, I know.

Got an enduring memory of a certain Captain Pugwash book, but I can't figure out which one it was. Just remember them baking a loaf at some point. "The things you remember" and so on.

John Pitt said...

You did indeed mention them somewhere, Kid. I remember reading it. And let's not forget young Master Bates!

Kid said...

Ssshh, don't tell anyone, THB, but I've got the complete series on DVD.

Or Roger the cabin boy, JP. Wouldn't like to be in his shoes.
