Trivia / The Pirates of Dark Water

  • Hoist by His Own Petard: The show's lavish visual style came from Turner giving the creators more money. Unfortunately, the price tag eventually became so hefty that it ended up leading to the series' cancellation.
  • The Other Marty: Roddy McDowall voiced Niddler in the original five-part pilot. When the episodes were reaired Frank Welker had taken over as Niddler, so to remain consistent Niddler's voice in the first five episodes was redubbed with Welker.
