Captain Sabertooth


Captain Sabertooth

Captain Sabertooth (in Norwegian Kaptein Sabeltann) is a fictional pirate that is the main character in some theatre plays by the Norwegian singer and actor Terje Formoe. The characters of these plays have also been adapted into books and cartoons for small children.

Captain Sabertooth is the skipper of a band of pirates, who are sailing together in their ship called The Black Lady. Among the other pirates are Pirate Wally ("Pelle Pirat"), the fat and somewhat clumsy man, and Tiny ("Pinky"), a young guy fighting for recognizion from the other pirates.

Other characters are Red Rudy ("Røde Ruben"), a former sailor who lives together with Aunt Bessie ("Tante Bassa") in Luna Bay ("Kjuttavika"). He wants to be an honest and peaceful man, but he has a manic interest for gold and jewels, an interest he shares with the pirates. He and Bessie works on a tavern together with her niece Veronica ("Sunniva"). Veronica becomes a friend with Tiny.

The play "Captain Sabertooth and the Treasure in Luna Bay" was written in 1989 and first performed in July 1990 in Kristiansand Zoo and Amusement Park in Kristiansand in Norway. Formoe himself originally played the main role as Captain Sabertooth. In 1992 and 1993 the music of the play became a success, hence making the play more popular. In 1994 the sequel, "Captain Sabertooth and the Secret of Luna Bay", was released. Since then, new plays and new music have been produced. The stories also include an animated feature film released in 2003.
