The Pirates! Band of Misfits

Trivia: When The Pirate King learns of Pirate Captain's royal pardon, he exclaims, "Is this true?" in exactly the same way that Richard IV does in 'The Foretelling'; the first episode of Blackadder Series 1. Both The Pirate King and Richard IV were portrayed by Brian Blessed.

Factual error: When the Pirates and Darwin land in London, the Pirates disguise themselves as Girl Guides, but Robert Baden Powell didn't found the Girl Guides until 1910, almost 70 years after the film is set.
