Will you help me win my treasure back?
-Shall we make the pirates walk the plank?
Well, let's hear you, then, me hearties!
# Hey-ho, Swashbucklers, go Take on the pirates, yo-ho-ho!
-# Hey-ho, Swashbucklers, go Take on the pirates, go, go, go!
Ahoy there, my hearties,
and welcome aboard the Scarlet Squid for Swashbuckle.
I'm Gem, and it's great to have you all aboard.
Are you ready for a rip-roaring pirate adventure?
-And will you help me win back all of my five jewels from those
-very naughty pirates?
Now, where are those naughty pirates?
Have you seen Captain Captain anywhere?
Oh, shush, I'm trying to read this storybook.
But you're usually reading the Pirate Handbook, Captain Captain.
Not today, Gem.
I'm in the mood for a good story,
so I've borrowed some from the floating library.
SHE BLOWS WHISTLE
There you are, Captain. These are all the storybooks you've borrowed
from the floating library.
I had no idea reading was so heavy.
Yes, well, I couldn't decide which
one I wanted, so I borrowed them all.
Right, I want you to read all the storybooks
and find me the best story ever.
I want it to be full of adventure.
-With an exciting surprise on every page.
Exciting surprise on every page, right.
-Oh, and would you like any cute princesses?
-No, no princesses.
-OK, maybe one or two.
-Maybe one, oh-oh-oh.
Right, find me the best story ever now!
-I'm going, I'm going.
Whilst Cook and Line look through all of those storybooks,
it's time for us to start a story of our own,
including some very brave Swashbucklers winning
back all of my jewels. So, Squawk, let's meet today's crew.
Playing today, we've got Eve.
Eve is six, and she can do a backwards roll.
Her Swashbuckle name is Earring Eve.
Here comes Victor.
Victor is six.
When he grows up, he wants to be a full-time pirate.
His Swashbuckle name is Admiral Victor.
Next, it's Miley.
Miley's six, and she'll put the pirates off by pulling silly faces.
Her Swashbuckle name is Mermaid Miley.
Completing the line-up, here's Tia.
Tia is six, and she likes playing on her scooter.
Let's hope she sends those pirates scooting into the ship's mess.
Her Swashbuckle name is Hidden Treasure Tia.
Welcome aboard to Eve, Miley, Tia and Victor,
my newest team of Swashbucklers,
here to help me win back all of my jewels from Captain Captain and
those pesky pirates.
But I need to make sure you are ready for the challenge,
so let's do the Swashbuckle salute. Let me see you all marching.
Put your hands on your hearts.
Here we go.
-Eye patch. AUDIENCE:
Arr-harr! I think we're ready. Squawk, what do we have to do today?
You daring Swashbucklers need to work as a team as you take part in
different pirate games.
Every time you win a game,
Captain Captain will give you a jewel for your treasure chest.
Win all five jewels and one of the naughty pirates will walk the plank
into the ship's mess.
So, this is our treasure chest.
So, when you win back all of my jewels from the naughty pirates,
we'll pop them in here to keep them safe, all right?
Ever heard the story about
the pirates who gave away their precious jewels, Gem?
No, because it never happens. Ha-ha-ha!
It might be a story that you have to write, Captain, especially
when my brave Swashbucklers win back all of my jewels.
Squawk, we are ready for the first game.
The first game is Stepping Stones.
The aim of the game is to build the statue of a giant rat.
All you have to do is cross the rock pool to collect the pieces from
the other side. But be careful,
Cook and Line will be trying to block your path.
And here is the picture of the rat that you need to build.
There are six pieces altogether,
the other side of the stepping stones over there in the crates.
But, uh-oh, there are two very naughty pirates around trying to put
you off. Cook is flinging fish around rather than cooking them.
And Line is getting in the zone, ready to put you off.
Now, remember, if you do fall off,
you have to go back to the side that you were coming from.
And you have until the octopus reaches out across the screen
and closes the treasure chest to play the game.
-Eve and Victor, will you go first for me?
-OK, are we ready to play?
-Then Swashbucklers away!
Off they go.
The fish are flinging, the balls are flying.
-Wobble some stones, Line.
-Well done, Victor.
Watch out for Line wobbling them.
Brilliant. Eve is across.
Come on, Victor, you can do it!
Oh, cheeky Line.
Oh, no, Eve is in. Back to the other side. That's it.
Take your time, watch out for Cook.
Quick, get past Line as quick as you can.
Off you go, Tia. And Miley, off you go.
Now, are there any blue bits on these two?
Empty a crate, Line.
Wait for a bit, for the blues to come back.
Well done. Oh, no, come back this side, Tia. That's it.
Quick as you can, he's not looking.
Quick! Watch out for...
That's it. Brilliant, OK.
-There's a sea horse. Would you like a sea horse?
Oh, you've got a blue piece.
There you go, Eve. Help Miley to put it on.
Sorry, yes, that's right. You can go now.
Well done. Let's have a look. Let's match up the colours.
If we turn this piece upside down...
Mind the fish!
Oh, no! Eve is in.
Back to the other side.
Two more to go.
Brilliant, OK. We need to put this piece at the back on the bottom.
You need to help build this piece, come on!
Slide it in. We've got them all across.
-Five, four, three...
-Quick, right beside you!
Quick! Behind you, Victor.
Now, we had all the pieces over here,
but we didn't get it built in time.
Squawk, you've got the bird's eye view - over to you.
Eve dodged the wobbles as she ran across the cobbles.
Tia fell in with Line's flying fish.
So did Eve!
Miley kept her balance.
And Victor ran home with a huge bit of the jigsaw.
They had all the pieces, but just ran out of time.
Sorry, Gem, this was a lose.
Oh, never mind, my hearties.
You got all of the pieces, but we couldn't get it together in time.
Don't worry, because we could still get that jewel back from
Captain Captain a little bit later, OK?
Once upon a time, there was a brave pirate captain,
and she got to keep all of the jewels.
The end! Ha-ha-ha!
Well, I've got a better ending to that story, Captain Captain,
where one of your naughty pirates
-walks the plank into the stinky ship's mess.
Cook, Line, have you found me the best story ever
-from those books I borrowed?
-We've read ten so far, Captain.
-No, we've read ten words.
-And even that was a struggle.
What? How am I supposed to find the best book ever if you've only read
ten words? Read faster. Now!
Right, I need you to...
-Fish out the books from the ship's mess?
-And then I need you to...
-Hurry up and find you the best story ever.
Hopefully, those books won't be
the only thing taking a dip into the slop.
Maybe one of the naughty pirates will join them later if we win back
all of my jewels. Right, Squawk, we're ready for our next game.
-The second game is Wacky Whirlpool.
The aim of the game is to fill all six holes in the whirlpool.
All you have to do is collect the cannonballs and roll them down
the ramp and past the fish.
But be careful, the whirlpool will be spinning,
and Cook and Line will be trying to stop you.
Here is one of the soft cannonballs that you have to collect
from the crates over there.
Bring them back to the ramp, roll them down into the holes,
but please do watch out - there are two pesky pirates lurking about.
Line is... Hang on, normally flinging fish,
but now he's using the cannon!
And watch out for Cook, who'll be dancing his way around
the whirlpool. Beautiful!
Eve, I'm going to give you this one here to start you off, OK?
-First, I need to know, are we ready to play?
Then Swashbucklers away! Come on!
First one in straightaway!
I've got a good feeling about this. Arr-harr!
-Give it a big push.
Oh, it went back into the fish. Never mind.
There you go, Miley, your turn. That's it, Victor, take your time.
-Yes! Another one in - well done.
-They're doing really well.
OK, that's it. Well done, Eve.
All right. Only two more to get.
Oh, Cook! It's not football! Yes!
Another one in - brilliant!
We've got 20 seconds left.
That last one's going to be tricky.
Quick, go collect another ball. Last ten seconds.
Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five,
four, three, two, one!
Oh, we started off so well.
Swashbucklers did a great job.
Squawk, you've got the bird's eye view. Over to you.
Our teams started off on a roll.
Eve got a hole in one straightaway,
immediately followed by Victor's cannonball.
In spite of Cook and Line's efforts, the team soon had three.
It was looking so good, but that last ball just wouldn't roll in.
Sorry, Gem, it's a lose!
Oh! Never mind, my hearties.
Don't look so sad, because we could still get that jewel back later, OK?
Sorry, Gem, no jewel for you. Don't worry, though -
I've got a little something that might cheer you up.
Oh, hang on. Oh, Captain, thanks.
It's a storybook,
but it's called Captain Captain And The Silly Swashbucklers.
Yes, it's all about an amazing captain and some Swashbucklers who
are rubbish at winning jewels.
Don't worry, though, it's got a happy ending.
Don't be so sure, Captain Captain.
The story isn't finished yet.
We'll see. I'm going to take a break and do some reading myself.
I wonder if Cook and Line have
fished those storybooks out of the slop.
There we go - all the pages are clean and slop-free.
Brilliant. One small, teensy-weensy problem.
I can't remember which pages go in which book.
-The Captain's coming.
We need to get a storybook for her, quick.
-Let's just shove all the pages in one book.
I'm ready for my story, and it had better be good.
Let's get you in your nap-time chair.
Do you want some seaweed milk and cookies?
-Yes. I'm all snuggly and ready for my story.
Once upon a time, a beautiful
princess was gazing out from her tower.
Oh, I like this story already.
She started to brush her long golden hair when she...
-Turned into a pumpkin and everyone screamed!
Want some more milk?
Then a mirror said to her, "Yous are the fairest of them all!"
Oh, I like that voice.
And as the princess looked into the magic mirror, she saw...
-Three big scary bears!
Do you want some more milk?
Then the princess started to get very sleepy.
Her eyes grew tired and she fell into a lo-ong sleep.
Nothing could ever wake her, until...
-A big bad wolf gobbled her up!
And they all lived happily ever after.
That was absolutely...
I never knew what was going to happen next!
Neither did we, to be honest.
Oh, well done, boys. Best nap time ever.
Um, Captain? Are you not going to eat that?
All right, my hearties.
We still have to find all five of my jewels,
but I've got a feeling we're going to do it in the Shipwreck Rummage.
So to get us ready for the challenge,
let's do the Swashbuckle Salute one more time.
Let me see all you marching! Put your hand on your hearts!
-Here we go! Eye patch. AUDIENCE:
Yeah! Come on in, Swashbucklers.
We are ready for the challenge. Come on, let's do this.
It's the Shipwreck Rummage.
The aim of the game is to collect the rest of Gem's jewels that have
been hidden around the shipwreck.
Use the map because X marks the spot
where each of the jewels can be found.
But be careful -
Cook, Line and Captain Captain have hidden the jewels well,
and they must all be in the chest before the time runs out.
All right, Swashbucklers.
You still have to find all five of my jewels,
so let me show you where they're hiding on the map, OK?
Up on the top deck, we have the red jewel in one of the bird's nests.
Then on the middle deck,
the purple jewel is in one of the crates of rats and mice.
Also on the middle deck,
the white jewel is in one of the baskets of sea creatures.
And down on the lower deck,
the green jewel is in one of the three hammocks.
And the blue jewel is over here in the shark tank.
So, Tia and Miley, you're going first for me.
-Which colour will you go for?
-Going right to the top.
-OK, my hearties. Are we ready to play?
Then Swashbucklers away. Off they go! Come on!
Tia and Miley are off,
climbing all the way to the top deck for the red jewel.
Watch out for Cook and his fish!
I don't think you're quick enough!
You're never going to get all the jewels.
They're in the crow's nest. Will they find it?
-I don't know what you're looking for. There's nothing there.
-Oh, no, give that back!
-Yes! They've got the red jewel.
-Where are you going to go next?
We're going to the hammocks next. Ready? Off you go to the hammocks.
Brilliant. Let's get the red jewel in the middle. Well done.
Eve and Victor are looking for the green!
I'm going to get it first!
They've got the green one. Girls, where are you going next?
Well done, Swashbucklers!
Off you go, go, go!
Over here. That's it, well done.
Now, Tia and Miley scramble up the steps to hunt for the purple,
hidden in the crates of rats and mice.
Over here, Swashbucklers - it's in the rats and mice!
They are looking for it. They're digging around.
Well, that was a quick find!
They've got the purple one. Where will you go next?
-To the shark tank? OK! Off you go, go, go!
Right, get the purple one in.
Yes! Well done.
Three down, two left to find,
and Eve and Victor are in the shark tank!
-Ha-ha, there it is!
-We've got the blue.
Girls, you have to go for the white one next, OK?
-You're running out of time.
Come on! Go, go, go, go!
The blue one goes in there. That's it. Come on, girls!
Up you go, look around! We're running out of time!
-Find that last jewel!
-See if you can find it!
Yes, bring it back! Quick! Quick! Come on.
-Ten, nine, eight, seven...
Well done, Swashbucklers. That was brilliant!
Oh, yes, we are celebrating down here.
Squawk, you've got the bird's eye view, over to you.
With five jewels to win, that had me on the edge of my perch.
Captain Captain tried to put Miley and Tia off,
but they found the red in the bird's nest.
Eve and Victor were wide awake in the hammocks and spotted the green.
Miley and Tia promptly picked up the purple in the rats and mice.
Eve showed the sharks no fear while bagging the blue.
Then Miley got smiley when she and Tia brought home the white.
The team found all five jewels!
It's a win!
Yes! We did it! Well done, my hearties.
You won back all of my jewels. Thank you so much, Swashbucklers.
Now I'd like to hand them out for you to hold on to for me.
-You're welcome. Tia.
-That's all right.
-And the blue one for me!
Let's hear it for my Swashbucklers!
And now we have all five of the jewels, you know what that means!
One of the naughty pirates has to walk the plank!
But which of them will it be?
Well, come over here with me, Miley,
cos I have a special bit here on the wheel to show you.
If it lands over there, then all three of the pirates go in
on the triple slop drop!
-That's not fair.
-I don't understand.
But who's it going to be? Let's spin the wheel to see.
Will it be Cook with the white hat?
Captain Captain with the black hat?
Or Line with the red bandanna? Or all three?
It's going to be...
So, Captain, it's time for you to walk the plank!
Walk the plank! Walk the plank!
-So funny, aren't you?
-This is the best ending to a story ever!
-Stinky! Stinky! Yucky!
-I don't want to!
-Walk the plank! Walk the plank!
-Come on, Captain.
And Captain Captain lived sloppily ever after!
We'll see you next time for more Swashbuckle!
# Hey-ho, Swashbucklers, go
# Take on the pirates, yo-ho-ho!
# Hey-ho, Swashbucklers, go
# Take on the pirates, yo-ho-ho!
# Hey-ho, Swashbucklers, go
# Take on the pirates, go, go, go! #
Captain Captain is in a reading mood and has borrowed loads of books from the Floating Library. Cook and Line can hardly lift the pile of books, but Captain Captain orders them to read them all and find her the best story ever. But Cook and Line drop all the books in the ship's mess, getting them dirty. They take out all the pages to clean them, but then they can't remember which page goes in which book!
