"The Strange Voyage of the Lady Dee" was a fantastic listen. It contained references to Black Beard, Calico Jack, and other nefarious sea characters. This would actually be a fun episode for children to listen to. Not often you could say that in episodes on Mystery Theater. 4 stars.

The appearance of Anne Bonny and pipe with ghostly voice makes this one of my favourites of all time. Whether she is benign or malevolent is for you to decide.

Inventive, imaginative twist on the "ghost ship" theme that might provide a dubious history lesson, but makes for a very clever episode that keeps turning cliches into surprises at a rapid pace. A couple and their young daughter wind up taking an unplanned journey across the old Spanish Main, and run afoul of pirates in two centuries at once. The CBSRMT practice of using adults to provide the voices of children is a bit jarring, as ever, but the episode still works well as a fun and suspenseful yarn with a refreshingly unusual premise.

A family purchases a boat in the Caribbean and sail it back to their home on the mainland. When a thick fog rolls in they become disoriented but after smelling tobacco, they hear a voice that gives them directions. Following them, moments later they are run aground. Meeting a local on the tiny island they find themselves upon, they seek his assistance. He agrees to take the father to another island where they can find a work boat but mother and daughter must stay along.

Another good episode to listen to and likely fine for young children to listen to as well. I don't think adults doing the voices of children works out very well in most of these plays, but luckily she didn't have a very large role. I didn't foresee the conclusion of the episode and was led down a different thought as most probably were, so that was fun to hear a different end than I thought was coming.
