The Short

Plot: The Rascals are interested in becoming pirates. While christening their ship with a bottle of ketchup, it sinks to the bottom of the harbor. After getting caught stealing watermelons, they run and hide on the scow belonging to Captain Whelan. They end up heading out to sea as the U.S. Navy comes to rescue the kids who, believing they are being attacked, engage in a fight against the Navy. The Navy captain decides to teach the little "pirates" a lesson by putting them to work as the police arrive in another boat with the upset parents, but by time they arrive, the kids are over being pirates. They're all way too sick from the ship bouncing up and down on the waves.
