Captain Pugwash

Retriever may have some memory of this. It looks like a fun way to do retro animation these days. The theme song is a hornpipe I thought I recognised, but alas, was wrong. It is called the Trumpet Hornpipe in Britain, the Thunder Hornpipe in the US, and either way it's not the one I was thinking of.

All this led to Eluveite

and the whole genre of Folk Metal, an unusual European genre that seems rather intentionally pagan. Which adds up, once you think about it.

Back to the original topic: Pugwash was originally black and white, later colorised, and revived in the 1990's It looks like it would have been a fun part to have in one's childhood, much better than Beanie and Cecil
