The First Puppet Pirates!

Avast! Puppet Pirates is our new cartoon series based around Boochbeard and Gandry. It's a one-panel humorous comic inspired by the loading screens found in Pirate101 and will be captioned by the fans of the game!

On a regular basis we'll be uploading a Puppet Pirate picture and asking for caption ideas. We'll then take our favorite captions and ask for votes. After all the votes are tallied, the caption with the most votes will be permanently added to the comic and featured on

Want to enter a caption for the first Puppet Pirates comic? Head over to the Pirate101 Facebook Page for a chance to have your caption featured on the Tradewinds Tribune!
