Those Scurvy Rascals is a children's animated series following the adventures of three underwear obsessed pirates. First aired by Nickelodeon UK in May 2005, it is now broadcast worldwide. The main characters Sissy Le Poop (called Jolly Roger in some versions), Smelly Pete and Shark Bait (plus Polly the Parrot) all live on the ship called "The Soiled Pair" and go on a different random adventure in every episode. The series was developed and produced by Blue-Zoo Productions and is owned by Entara.

The opening sequence features their ship and the names of the characters. The theme song is as follows:

They sail upon the ocean from Jamaica to Penzance,
but they don't want gold and they don't want treasure,
they only want your pants!
pants on the poop deck,
pants in the hold,
pants in the chest where there should be gold,
pants in the crows nest,
pants at sea,
and a big pair of pants where the sail should be-
those scurvy rascals!
