-->'''Pirate With A Scarf:''' You can't just say "arrr" and expect everything to turn out alright.

** The movie states at the very start that the year is 1837, which instantly confuses a few things. Victoria ''was'' queen at this point, but only just; she was crowned that year. Darwin was already famous in scientific circles by now. The film also features cameos from Creator/JaneAusten and [[TheElephantMan Joseph Merrick]]. In 1837, the former was already dead and the latter was yet to be born.

* BastardGirlfriend: Cutlass Liz can barely even walk across a room without stabbing someone. Apparently, this just makes her even more attractive.

Added DiffLines:

** Charles Darwin. Terribly mild mannered, is charmingly smitten with the Queen, and writes in his journal as though he were a confused teenage boy.

Added DiffLines:

* AllTheOtherReindeer: The Pirate Captain is looked on with contempt by the other pirates, and is such a failure that the price on his head is "12 doubloons and a free pen".

* SelfPlagiarism: Or maybe MythologyGag or ShoutOut--but the climactic scene of this film bears a surprising resemblance to Aardman's previous effort, ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun''. In both, someone is trying to get away via an ungainly flying device (the bird machine in the first one vs. a blimp in this film). In both, someone else is trying to catch them via climbing up a long string or rope (Christmas tree lights in the first, a rope in the second). In both, the person trying to fly away attempts to cut the string/rope as the other person climbs. The main difference is that in this film, it's the hero (the Pirate Captain) trying to climb up and the villain (Queen Victoria) trying to get away, whereas in ''Chicken Run'' the situation was reversed.
