Another one word League assignment - Pirates
I'm looking forward to this one!
Go ahead and press play for the full affect!
I actually thought about this topic for a bit as I don't collect anything pirate related. That's not to say I don't like pirates or have fond memories of the genre!
Part One - Garfield's Halloween Special
To commence this 3 part assignment I'll start with some of my all time favorite pirates.....
These pirates didn't have names and were only present for a few minutes.....but that didn't stop them from becoming some of my favorites. As a kid I absolutely loved Garfield's Halloween Adventure. Anyone who has seen this special knows that Garfield and Odie dress up as pirates and pillage the town in search of "candy, candy, candy!" Anyway after scouring the neighborhood they see a lonely house across the water on an island. Garfield, being the greedy cat he is, decides they can't leave this house unpillaged! They row over to the house and meet a creepy old man (who really gave me the creeps as a kid!)
"I said the one thing I'm not is a scaredy cat!"
Part Two - Swiss Family Robinson
I haven't seen this movie in I guess 20 years, but it still remains one of my favorites from childhood! Those Robinsons put Chuck Noland (Cast Away) to shame. They do stranded in style! No Wilsons for this family!
Part Three - Hook
I couldn't in good conscience write about Pirates without including Hook. Great movie with some great star power! Robin Williams as Peter Pan, Julia Roberts as Tinkerbell, and of course Dustin Hoffman as Hook himself. And don't forget the fact that the music was done by the great John Williams! A classic in my opinion....
"I hate, I hate, I hate Peter Pan!"
Threw in my one solitary pirate related toy in the Nerd Nook.
So that'll do it for this week's topic. I guess you can probably tell that I really enjoyed this League assignment. A nice walk down memory lane. Gave me a reason to unearth some great memories!
