'Shiver me timbers!' Pirate Jed is not happy...Imagine a pirate who feels seasick all the time. That's Pirate Jed. He's fed up with bobbing around on the rollicking, rolling sea and packs up his pirate paraphernalia to go and look for a new home. His adventures take him on a long and winding journey where he ends up helping out lots of others who need help - his pirate hat is the perfect nest for a homeless bird, his cutlass frees a tangled sheep and his handkerchief is a bandage for a dog's poorly leg - and they all join Jed in his search for a new home. Finally they meet Farmer Ted who is fed up with life on dry land and so he and Jed decide to swap. So, with a cheeriyo-ho-ho, Pirate Jed has a perfect new home!
