Comment - Captain Pugwash

Hi Karen
I had a look at the YouTube videos of Captain Pugwash – they were brilliant. The stories about the suggestive names of the characters are sadly urban myths. The creator of the Pugwash stories, John Ryan, won a successful libel suit against the instigators of the rumours. I think the urban myths were great, and made the series a lot more entertaining. A case where being bad through lewd suggestion is a lot more fun than the sanitized reality.
