I have a TV theme song stuck in my head. Please help me identify the TV show so I can listen to the song.

It was a catchy sea shanty, and I'm pretty sure it was played on a concertina.

Here's what I remember:

  • I'm pretty sure it was a cartoon.

  • It was sea based, I think, about a sailor, maybe a pirate.

  • Pretty sure it was British

  • I remember from the early to mid 90s.

It's not Spongebob or sailor moon.

Sounds like Captain Pugwash, from the mid '70s. It is British cartoon series and had the sea-shanty theme tune. An updated series aired in 1998.

Here is the theme tune on YouTube.

@Coomie - glad to be of service. As someone from the UK who was the target audience of this show in the mid-70's this was a very easy guess. – iandotkelly Dec 11 '12 at 1:19
