Maddie Fenton (Mom)
Jack Fenton (Dad)
When Youngblood shows up at Casper High, Mr. Lancer runs in terror. But in "Fenton Menace," Youngblood says only kids can see him, so Mr. Lancer should not have been able to.
If the subliminal message was: "Leave your KIDS, Come to the cruise", how was Jazz effected? Even if she does believe she's an adult, she doesn't have any children of her own, so the message shouldn't have worked on her.
In Fanning of the Flames Jazz fell under Ember's spell because teenagers fall under the spell of the song. In this episode, adults fall under the spell. So Jazz should not have been under the spell in Fanning of the Flames because she's an adult, or vice versa.
In the scene where Ember says "That's right pop fans, Ember's back, and ready to rock" her guitar is in her left hand, which is the opposite hand to when she had it in "Fanning the Flames," though it's corrected later.
During the scene of which the pirates are taking Casper High's exercise equipment, the D on Danny's chest is more turquoise.
Why couldn't Danny just use the Emergency Ham to make the Fenton Jet like in the upcoming "Reality Trip"? It would have worked better than the blimp.
For a second when Danny is floating everyone off the ship back down to the ground, his eyes are green all over like Vlad's eyes, except Danny's are green, while Vlad's are red.
The number of adults in the hold of the pirate ship changes in each scene.
When Youngblood forced Danny off the plank, wouldn't he be able to go ghost if he was outside the shield?
If Danny got shocked in the shield, how did Youngblood, Ember, and every skeleton on the ship withstand it?
Youngblood's Peg Leg And His Hooked Arm Change Sides of His Body.
During the close up of Jack and Maddie's not on the magazine (when Danny is reading it), Danny's hand is a darker skin tone than usual. It's actually more the color of Tucker's.
When Sam says that Jack isn't the only blimp in the family, she has pupils.
Danny: All right pee-wee! Talk! Tell me what you want with these people or I'll...I'll...spank you or something!
Youngblood: I'd love to see you try! (Blasts Danny with rays from eyes)
Ember: (To Youngblood; after she burns the ship's mast) Okay, maybe not the best idea. Ah, well. Bon voyage, kid! Catch you on my comeback tour! (Laughs and disappears)
Danny: Now if I were my dad, where would I put the secret control panel for the Op-Center? Someplace where I would see every time I come here. (Figures out it would be the refrigerator; goes to it; finds and presses the button) Yep, next to the ham!
Computer Voice: Defense system activated. Also, the ham has spoiled.
Sam: (Cheering the acronym for her radio station) P-A-R-T-Y!
Tucker: We ain't got no alibi!
Sam: (Looks at cruise brochure, after seeing that Ember is back) M. Bersback? Ember's back! That's not a clue, it's a billboard.
Tucker: We really have to start paying attention to these things.
Danny: Paulina, you're good with make up. I need you to disguise Tucker as an adult so he can get aboard the pirate ship and disable it from within.
Paulina: Aye-aye, captain! But you still have no shot at me.
Danny: (To Ember, after she says she's working with Youngblood) What, is the music career going so poorly you have to pick up babysitting jobs on the sides?
Ember: I guess you could say me and him share the same opinion of adults.
Ember & Youngblood: Hate 'em!
(Tucker is aboard Youngblood's ship and below deck, where all the adults are fueling the ship by exercising)
Tucker: Mom! Dad! You're under mind control! And looking really trim! Maybe you guys should exercise more often.
Danny: (Over megaphone) Listen up, everybody. If you want your parents back, you're going to have to follow my lead.
Dash: Why should we follow you, Fen-toad?
Danny: You're right, Dash. Let's follow the other kid who comes from a family of ghost hunters and knows how to work all their gear.
Danny: (Giving Dash a weapon) Dash, you're with me on offense. We're gonna spring the adults from the pirate ship.
Dash: So, I get to hit some people?
Danny: Oh, yeah!
(Dash grabs Danny's shirt)
Danny: Not me!
Dash: (Lets go of Danny's shirt) Sorry, old habits.
Star: (Cheerleading, while fighting pirates) Okay! We hate pirates, yes we do! I hate pirates, how 'bout you?
Jack: Why do I suddenly feel like I have buns of steel?
Maddie: At last! I mean, I love you just the way you are. (Hugs Jack)
Youngblood: Argh! Me prisoners are escaping!
Parrot: So, what's powering the ship?
(Ship starts falling)
Danny: (Sees the ship gone after battling Youngblood) Well, one thing's for sure. It's gonna be awfully quiet at my house tonight.
(Scene changes to party at Danny's house)
Danny: Not getting invited to a party is one thing, but not getting invited to a party AT MY OWN HOUSE!
Parrot: (With ship underwater surrounded by ghost shield in reverse) Let me out of here! Let me out!
Youngblood: Actually, it would be more like, "Ahoy, matey! I'm marooned on this island!"
Parrot: Oh, shut your gob, you twit!
Danny: Mom, Dad! I really wanna use the emergency op-center to start a radio station!
(Silence; Danny looks around and finds no one)
Sam: That's a yes!
Danny: (Finds note on a catalogue; reads note) "Your mother, sister, and I are on a weekend get-away fun cruise. We're sure you will take charge and act responsibly. Love, Mom & Dad." (Removes note and sees catalogue) M. Bersback Cruiselines? Weird, they went on a fun cruise with Jazz, who isn't fun in the least?
Dash: (After Danny, in ghost mode, saves kids from the force field) Hey, where's Fenton?
Danny: He's safe. I, uh, rescued him. (To Paulina) He sure is cool. You should totally make out with him.
Mr. Lancer: Of course, you kids should feel free to, as you might say, "Bust out your own freaky beats!" As long as they're not too freaky or... uh, beaty?
Danny: (Runs to the radio station) Sweet! Where do I sign up to yank this crud off the air? (Danny scratches the Vapor Drone record with the record needle)
Dash: Fenton a D.J.? Yeah, right! Who would ever listen to you?
Danny: I'll show you who'll listen! What do we want?! (Silence) Um, this is the part where you say, "Good music." What do we want?!
Tucker & Sam: (Hesitantly) Uh... Good music?
Dash: (Pushes Danny out of the way and Danny screams) What do we want?!
Kids: Good music!
Dash: When do we want it?!
Youngblood: (From nowhere) NOW!
(After the ghost pirates steal the ghost shield generator)
Youngblood: Fall back, me hearties. We got da... got da... What's the word?
Youngblood: Ha, you said booty! (Laughs)
(Pirate ghosts begin laughing)
Danny: Hey! They're stealing my dad's ghost shield generator! (Flies toward ship, Youngblood gets in the way and turns his peg leg into a cannon and fires at Danny, which makes Danny fall; ship gets away)
Sam: Nice goin', matey. You just got your butt kicked by Short John Silver.
Danny: Hey, considering he just took my dad's ghost shield, you think maybe you could be a little sympathetic, like Tucker?
(Tucker starts laughing)
Tucker: He said booty!
Youngblood: Avast ye! Aw, man, what's the word?
Parrot: Scurvy dogs.
Youngblood: Right! Avast ye, scurvy dogs! Prepare to be booted by captain Youngblood and his skeleton crew!
Danny: Hey, isn't it past your bedtime, kid?
Youngblood: (Makes a slingshot with his hook and fires a beam at Danny) Don't call me kid! I'm mature beyond me years! (Blows a raspberry)
Dash: (To Danny, while they're fighting the pirates) You're one brave geek, Fenton. When I'm whaling on you tomorrow, I'll be whaling on a hero. But I will be whaling on ya.
The name of the radio station Sam started was called "The P.A.R.T.Y." (Providing Alternative Radio To You). It's slogan was "P-A-R-T-Y, We ain't got no alibi!"
The name of this episode comes for the fact that pirates are attacking and Sam makes her own radio station (P.A.R.T.Y.), and they have to use radio signals to defeat the pirates.
A guy abducted by the pirate ghosts is reading a book titled "Caribbean Adventure", which is similar to real titles such as "Treasure Island" and "Pirates of the Caribbean". This is subtle humour keeping to the pirate theme of the episode.
It was hinted in the end of the episode that Ember may return again in a later episode. That was confirmed in the very next episode "Reign Storm."
The Vapor Drone easy listening music is a slower version of Ember's song in "Fanning the Flames"
Apparently, Danny knows how to skateboard.
First aired November 23, 2005 on YTV.
Apparently, this episode takes place eight to ten weeks or later from "Doctor's Disorders," since Tucker's broken leg is healed in this episode.
Danny is grounded for a month at the end of this episode.
Apparently, Paulina knows Tucker's name.
Apparently, Star is a cheerleader, like Paulina.
Sam's radio station was called the "P.A.R.T.Y.," which stands for:
P - Providing.
A - Alternative.
R - Radio.
T - To.
Y - You.
The subliminal message in Ember's music was, "Leave your kids! Come to the cruise!"
Jazz's belief that she is psychologically an adult, which was brought up in "Mystery Meat" is mentioned again.
Casper High now has a new school radio station.
In this episode, Dash and Kwan finally have a party at Danny's house, which was originally supposed to happen in "Splitting Images," but presumably did not happen since Danny became unpopular again.
Apparently, Jack has made a new anti-ghost shield generator since he used the first one from "Public Enemies" to build Maddie's Specter Deflector in "Maternal Instinct." However, it was stolen by Youngblood and his crew.
This episode uses the same technique for foreshadowing the ghost villain from "Doctor's Disorders." In "Doctor's Disorders," Bertrand disguised himself as a Dr. Bert Rand, which foreshadows that Bertrand and Spectra are the villains. In this episode, the brochure for the boat trip had the name M. Bersback, which foreshadows that Ember's back.
Apparently, Ember does not need anybody chanting her name to become powerful anymore, since she is still able to fight Danny even though nobody is chanting her name.
The music that plays during the title screen is the same music that played during the title screens of "Mystery Meat," "Teacher of the Year," and "Life Lessons." However, the title screen music for these four episodes are different from the rest of the others in the series.
We learn that the secret control panel for the Emergency Op-Center is in the refrigerator next to the emergency ham (which has spoiled).
Look Hard: Nathan (who does not officially debut until the next episode, "Reign Storm") makes two cameos in this episode. The first one is at the party at Danny's house. The second cameo is when Danny is barking orders at the large crowd of kids in his house: Nathan is standing next to Sam.
Each kid either got a laser staff, a Jack-A-Nine-Tails, or a Fenton Fisher to fight the ghost pirates with.
Nickname(s) Dash Gives Danny: Fentoad, Fentoenail.
Danny does not catch a ghost in the Fenton Thermos in this episode.
The metal contraption on top of the FentonWorks building is revealed to be the emergency op-center.
This marks the first time Danny fights ghosts without turning into Danny Phantom.
If you don't count the skull in the shape of Danny's head, this is the first episode where Danny isn't actually in the title screen.
This is the first episode in which Dash, Paulina, and Star successfully fight a ghost on their own.
We learn that the Nasty Burger's slogan is, "Nasty is only one letter away from tasty."
Opener: Danny, Sam, and Tucker are gazing at the stars at night while listening to a mysterious new song on the radio. A huge ghost pirate ship appears and captain Youngblood introduces himself. His crew steals the ghost shield generator from FentonWorks. Danny attempts to stop them, but Youngblood stops him. The ship escapes with the ghost shield generator.
All the kids wear orange jumpsuits like Jack's for a portion of this episode.
1) Youngblood forgetting his pirate lingo and having his parrot remind him.
2) Danny (in ghost mode) suggesting that Paulina stop liking him, and start liking Danny Fenton.
Ember was the only ghost that escaped Youngblood's ship before it sank.
Featured Named Invention(s): Emergency Op-Center.
Ember's guitar is destroyed near the end of the episode.
Jazz is the only non-adult to be affected by Ember's song.
Apparently, the teenagers don't think of "Inviso-Bill" as a threat anymore.
Major Human Debut(s): Paulina's mom, Dash's mom, Dash's dad.
It is revealed that Ember can use her hair to shoot fire.
The song Ember uses to control the adults is just the beat of her song, "Remember," from "Fanning the Flames," except with a softer tune.
Title Screen Caption: "It Will Shiver Your Timbers!"
Major Ghost Debut(s): Youngblood - A bratty ten-year old ghost who can only be perceived by people who think they are kids. He likes to pretend to be childish things such as a pirate or a cowboy. However, he tends to have trouble remembering the lingo of his "professions." His hands and legs can turn into different things, such as a cannon or a rope. He is aided by his shape-shifting skeleton ghost, although he seems to be annoyed with Youngblood most of the time.
Main Villain(s): Ember & Youngblood.
Ember: (To Danny) Wasting your time, wannabe!
"Wannabe" is the title of a pop/rock song. It was once played in the 2005 movie Chicken Little, performed by the characters Abby Mallard and Runt of the Litter; or, to a more specific extent, Joan Cusack and Steve Zhan, the voices of the characters.
Episode Title: Pirate Radio
The title is probably a reference to the act of illegally downloading music.
Sam: Nice goin', matey. You just got your butt kicked by Short John Silver.
The name that Sam gives to Youngblood, Short John Silver, is obviously a parody of Long John Silver, a famous fictional character from the novel, Treasure Island. He was a pirate and the ship's quartermaster under the notorious Captain John Flint. More Info
Tucker: Survey says, no.
Danny: Survey says, going ghost!
Tucker and Danny both say "survey says" in the beginning of the episode. This was a commonly used phrase in Family Feud, a game show where the answers were taken by survey. This phrase was also used by Sam in "Public Enemies."
