Yo ho ho maties! Forget Blackbeard, Long John Silver, and even the Pirate Captain – Salty Sea Dog is the real scourge of the seven seas! For years he plundered and pillaged his way from port to port, sailing under the Skull and Crossbones flag (well he is a dog!), before docking in Bristol for Gromit Unleashed. There he greeted scurvy landlubbers on Cascade Steps – always keeping his good eye out for potential new crew members!
Peter Lord, Founder and Creative Director of Aardman Animations, gave Gromit specially sculpted fibreglass boots, cutlass, and eyepatch, making him the most booty-ful pirate around. Salty’s heart isn’t entirely black, though – he also has a tattoo dedicated to his mother!
