I had heard that there once was a children's t.v. show in the UK a while back ago (The sixties, maybe?) that had characters on a ship with risque names. ("Master Bates", for example.) I don't know if this was a live action show, or a cartoon or puppet show. Does anyone recall this? Or is this just the stuff of legends?
Without even clicking on the link, my superpowers tell me that it must refer to Cap'n Pugwash...
As an addition, my as-good-as-father-in-law often tells me about a friend he had in Australia who in the early days of children's TV ran a show with the catchline "See You Next Time", represented on set by "C U Next Time" (imagine that the big letters are REALLY big and the wee letters are REALLy wee). Legend? I have no idea - googling has failed me.
