After attending a pirate-themed local carnival, '80s girl Mabel (Kristy McNichol, "Family," "Empty Nest," LITTLE DARLINGS) is knocked unconscious, beginning her fantasy about being trapped in the days when pirates roamed. The daughter of a Major General, Mabel falls for wayward pirate Frederick (Christopher Atkins, THE BLUE LAGOON). A family tradition and pirate interference prevent them from wedding in this goofy bubblegum musical, which spoofs Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Pirates of Penzance" (amongst other things). The film flopped in theatres but developed a major cult following on television and video.
