"Captain Feathersword" (often called The Friendly Pirate ).  He owns a ship named The S.S Feathersword. He was portrayed by Anthony Field, and as well originally played by Anthony along with his 2 other brothers, Paul Field and John William Field. Then in 1996, Paul Paddick became Captain Feathersword, and he still has done the voice of him ever since. He also has a crew, the Friendly Pirate Crew, all of which idolize and have the same bright and cheerful personality as their captain. According to the Series 2 episode, Family, Captain's father and mother, showing poor parenting and inappropriate child-raising practices, left him (basically abandoning him, though the Captain remains optimistic about this matter) so they could sail the Seven Seas.

  • Captain Feathersword was created because Anthony understood that kids liked pirates.
  • He was given a feathersword so that he would be a non-violent pirate.

  • Captain is the only human Wiggly Friend.
  • In some of the Dorothy the Dinosaur DVDs, Paul Paddick isn't there. So his understudies had to fill in for him. It also happened at some concerts.
