"Space Pirates is a live action music series that kick starts the weekend as part of the 'Big Fun Time' zone.
Set aboard the good ship Guisto, Space Pirates is a musical feast for the ears as children are treated to thirty minutes of music from a variety of genres and influences. Guisto orbits planet Earth under the command of Captain DJ (Perrier Award nominee Luke Toulson) who surfs the sound waves looking for music to broadcast on his pirate radio station Guisto FM. Captain DJ's motley crew includes space-wise kids Honk and Tonk, Lippy the talking microphone, and alien barnacle Zorst (voiced by Dominic Byrne from the Chris Moyles show) who reads the travel news and weather report. Also part of the merry gang is Jolly Roger the grumpy flag and raucous house band "The Jingles", made of three puppet rats with rhythm - Windy, Brassy and Stringy.
Every week the Space Pirates are called into action by an Earth-based "Pirate Posse", who set a musical challenge that sends the crew on a search for the perfect song for their needs. One week the Pirate Posse might ask for a song to dance to, another week a song to sing-along or drum to. Captain DJ and his crew then select three songs for the Pirate Posse to choose one that will play out the show.
Space Pirates features musical guests and genres from all over the world - performances have been filmed in Papua New Guinea, Beijing, Australia and South Africa, as well as the UK. Viewers can look forward to guest appearances from artists who might be beamed aboard or performing on location including McFly, Jamelia, Riverdance, The Blue Man Group, Julie Felix and String Fever. Pop videos classics such as YMCA, James Brown, Christina Aguilera and Scissor Sisters are highlights of the show, and The Jingles bring their own unique twist to proceedings with their weekly performances of cover versions including tracks by The Beatles, Madonna, The Monkees, The Beach Boys and U2.
Primarily aimed at children from 4-6 years old, Space Pirates reaches all ages and brings the whole family together to explore a diverse range of musical performances."
These episodes were capped from the CBeebies channel on weekends in November and December 2007 (one episode airs per week).
