The Pirates! The Band of Misfits, Charles Darwin (David Tennant) Stop-Motion Puppet & Props

original movie prop

A Charles Darwin (David Tennant) stop-motion puppet with props from The Pirates! Band of Misfits. Darwin was seen tarred and feathered on board the QV1 as he attempted to rescue the Pirate Captain’s (Hugh Grant) prize dodo Polly. Built to be posable with an internal metal armature by Aardman, the puppet features a realistic coat of feathers and hands made from silicone, while the top of his head and eyebrows are made in Plasticine. The mouth is a rapid-prototyped resin component designed for quick replacement. Accompanying Darwin are a pair of egg boxes and two chickens, one of which is posed to look as though it is startled. Showing some small marks from use, the puppet and props remain in overall very good condition, with the puppet presented on a custom-made display base.
