The Chuckle Brothers in “Return of the Pirates of the River Rother 2” ‘in Stranger Tights’

Ahoy there landlubbers! A vast behind and prepare to splice the main brace as the boys go on a full blown swash-buckling adventure at sea.

Paul and Barry are visiting a Theme park for the day and decide to brave going on one of the daring Water rides. Once inside, they are leaning on a wall when they accidentally fall through and find themselves magically transported back in time in to a world of Pirates and Sunken Treasures. Don’t miss this spectacular pirate adventure! Magic, mystery and mayhem are guaranteed. Fun and laughter for all the family and grandmother as well.

The Chuckle Brothers, Barry and Paul, from Rotherham, are real-life brothers and are the youngest in a showbiz family of eight. They were literally ‘born in a suitcase’ and started entertaining from a very early age, putting on shows for friends and neighbours in the back garden of their home in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, where they grew up. They have worked in practically every field of entertainment from pantomime, summer season, clubs, cabaret, television, touring revues, circus and even an ice-show. They had made many ‘one-off’ appearances, and even won NEW FACES, on the original series back in 1974. But it was in 1985 that they finally got their big break with the BBC, recording thirteen episodes with those two loveable canine characters THE CHUCKLEHOUNDS for Children’s TV. This series is still shown throughout the world and is enjoyed by millions.
