One day, as Capt'n Bluebear sat astride the rock of his retirement, he heard the grim voice of fate: "Bluebear, you have travelled the seven seas. You have written a successful book about your life, and 87% of Germans know you. What is missing is a cartoon film." And so Capt'n Bluebear decided to become a film star, certain that his life story would provide plenty of suitable material.
Find out how Capt'n Bluebear overcomes sea phantoms, water droplets and crocodile pirates, how he survives the calorie rays fired by his long-distance chess opponent and archenemy Prof. Dr. Finefinger, and is able to fend off the attacks of the real estate sharks which infest the Capitalistic Sea; aided and abetted as always by his best friend, and his remarkable knowledge of the language of Fartinese.
