"Hook-handed men have no evil!" -- so say the vilest pirates ever to plunder Pirateland, and that's the saying for Pirates of Pirateland. Aboard your houseboat you'll see the scenes of pirates who have met a bitter end, and watch as others loot a semi-fictional town. Scenes include:

Theme Song

The Pirates of Pirateland theme song is often misquoted. It begins:

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.

We pillage, we plunder, we topple and hurl,
Open up me hearties, ho show.
We kidnap and ravage and cry like a girl,
Open up me hearties, ho show.

Ho show, ho show, a pirate's life for me.
