Ahoy me hearties and climb aboard Old Jack’s Boat with CBeebies.
Old Jack, played by everybody’s favourite granddad figure Bernard Cribbens is a retired fisherman who lives in a little village on the Yorkshire coast called Staithes - a real village bearing the same name.
He tells plenty of tall stories from his old fishing boat Rainbow.and these turn into animations that see Jack and his dog Salty having adventures in a wide variety of locations. Jack and Salty explore the sea bed, ride in hot air balloons, explore exotic islands and go wherever the story takes them. He is often assisted by his friends in the village.
Each story begins in the same way as Old Jack says”Once upon a twinkly time, the rainbow set off from Staithes, waved goodbye to Whitby and disappeared over the horizon.’ At the end of each episode Jack and Salty leave the boat and walk back home along the cobbled streets of Staithes.
