A Pirate's Life

See the voyage of a band of half-witted pirates in search of danger, ale, and of course...treasure. It's long, so be patient.

Update: Yeah, so the TV thing didn't happen.

Update 8/24/05: Recently, I checked Discovery's site, and it seems the show is on at 9PM, not 10. I altered this post accordingly...not that anyone is reading it.

UPDATE 8/04/05: This animation is being used in a show called Sunken Treasure Bling on the Discovery Channel (minus the copyrighted music of course). It will air Aug. 28 at 9PM, and repeats later that night at 12AM.


Can you spell great?

Fantastic! The fight scene very good, plot funny, and good graphics!

and its original!!!


That was a great movie! The animation was smooth, the sounds were great, and the storyline was original. It was just fantastic, it was cool, and funny at the same time. Please, make more!

Well now

Nice choice of music but maybe you should have made your own, the Monkey Island music is too familiar. Plus, in the scenes where there wasn't any sound it dragged on a bit and the fact you had to keep pressing the green arrow was irritating, it was a good idea so no text was mixed but with a movie this length it gets a bit tiresome having to click the mouse button when I just wanted to sit back and watch the movie. A good idea would have been to have put some game elements in this.
But, as for what it is, a lot of effort was obviouslly put into this and a great story too. The animation was great for stickmen and it was a good length, perhaps a little too long, but better too long than too short. :-) Well done.


This was great. The pirates moved extremely smoothly and the Monkey Island music (which I've always loved) really helped. At first I thought it was just gonna be an outright rip-off of Monkey Island but it just got better from there. Keep it up!

Very i mean very nice

This was a good clean nicely animated story. While watching it i forgot i was wathichng a flash it felt more like a good cartoon.
You captured the monkey island ambiance perfectly and not only by the music . Again this is very nice. And considering all the other junk on newgrounds u deserve a 5 . Yes sir!
