    Pirates Question........

    Does anyone know if all or some of the pirates in the POC attraction have been given character names or not. I do not know if this question has been posed before. But, I think it is a good inquiry.

    Outside of the obvious names (Sparrow and Barbossa), the only pirate that I know of that has a name is "Old Bill', the pirate sitting with the 2 cats. Please chime in , if anyone has more info on this.

    I don't think many are named. Of course Carlos is being dunked in the well.

    In the book that Disney put out about the Pirates ride and movies I'm pretty sure they said that the new characters, Old Bill, and Carlos are the only ones named. Even the auctioneer is simply referred to as the Auctioneer. I seem to remember the pirates in the jail cells giving eachother some rather creative nicknames however.

    Billie Howe, and Mister Coote are the only original Pirates with names. Of course there's "Carlos", but he's the Town Official being dunked, not a Pirate...

    X Atencio named several of the pirates in Marc Davis' drawings. I don't have my reference handy, but there were names for some of them. I'll try and dig that up.

    Probably most of the AA's in POTC had some sort of name for identification purposes, but the only two pirates who's names were included in the soundtrack tapes were Billie Howe and Mister Coote. It is not made clear whether "Bill" the rum-drinking, cat-loving Pirate is the same "Billie Howe" from the final Shooting Gallery Scene.

    Re: Pirates Question........

    I have copies of some of the Marc Davis concept art. The pirate on the barrel (who is now on the barrel in the chase scene) is labeled Mr Coote. The pirate who is being held up on the windlass to shoot is labeled mr how. I think that I somewhere saw that the pirate on the cannon was mr. gibbs. one of the pirates in the jail refer to himself as old bill (also in the concept art). of course the pirate with the rum tells the cats to have a drink with old bill also. the last ref I can find from these drawings is the captain of the ship who is just named Captain.

    Just noticed from another thread, that there is new merchandise of the pirate on the cannon, and they are calling him mr. coote.

    Also, on the POTC postcards that were released based off of the original Marc Davis art, the old pirate being chased by the fat woman is named Albert

    I agree--with the characterful nature of POTC, you would expect the pirates to have been given fan nicknames...interesting
