A painting of Charles Darwin (David Tennant) and furniture from the scientist's home, used for the scenes in which the Pirates battle with the monkey Bobo for their prized Dodo Polly. The painting features a foam and resin frame with the interior painting, showing Charles Darwin and an iguana, printed on card. The furniture - cabinets and a bureau - are made of resin. The picture frame has been finished in worn faux-bronze paint with the furniture painted to replicate the look of finished wood and brass hardware. The pieces remain in very good condition with minimal additional wear from use and time spent in storage.

In The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, Hugh Grant stars in his first animated role as the luxuriantly bearded Pirate Captain – a boundlessly enthusiastic, if somewhat less-than-successful, terror of the High Seas. With a rag-tag crew at his side and seemingly blind to the impossible odds stacked against him, the Captain has one dream: to beat his bitter to the much coveted Pirate Of The Year Award. It's a quest that takes our heroes from the shores of exotic Blood Island to the foggy streets of Victorian London. Along the way they do battle with the pirate-hating Queen Victoria and team up with a young Charles Darwin, but never lose sight of what a pirate loves best: adventure!
