    Captain Pugwash: Nick Frost starring in live-action film - BBC News

    I bet it will have zero hidden innuendo though (like the original) or was that a myth ?

    Master Mate
    A somewhat dopey character, who has a tendency to use malapropisms and to mispronounce common words. He has a teddy bear in his bunk and is quite mild-mannered. It is not entirely clear why he is the mate, as he does not appear to have any authority over the rest of the crew. He was present in the first ever Pugwash story, in which he was depicted as being constantly sleepy. Pugwash's adenoidal pronunciation of this character's name appears to be the main source of the urban legend about characters' sexually suggestive names.

    That was a myth. The cabin boy was called Tom, it was Seaman Mates and there was a Pirate Willy but no Master Bates.

    The family went to court against the student magazine (who else...) that floated the original misappropriated names that had greatly upset John Ryan.
    Blog? What blog...?
