Ay, a pirates' life is dangerous n' dirty life! But when this motley crew gets an invitation to a little girl's birthday party, they're simply delighted. What could be better than cake? Just as they're about to walk the plank, their pirate-y parrot tells them—as only a parrot or a mother could—that they need to clean up their act. With a scrub-a-dub-dub, brand new clothes, and a doll for the birthday girl, the 'pirates' show up sparkling and clean. But they're in for a big surprise. What the birthday girl wants most of all are real pirates—black feet, messy hair, stinky clothes and all.
