What’s the best part of being a pirate? Well it’s not plundering and it’s not cutlasses, it’s ham day of course! Such is at least the belief on the vessel of Pirate Captain and his loyal band of lovable rouges. Is that the reason why they are the laughing stock amongst other buccaneers? Perhaps, but their oddball assemblage of ugly marauders and “surprisingly curvaceous” pirates wouldn’t have it any other way. Aardman Animations' latest stop-motion adventure The Pirates! Band of Misfits takes a wholesome approach to looting and pillaging while disorienting history in the process.
