Niddler - Pirates of Dark Water by NateHallinanArt Niddler - Pirates of Dark Water by NateHallinanArt
Prints Available Here!

This is Niddler the second character in my Pirates of Dark Water series. He's a multi-hued monkey bird from the planet Mer. It's anybodies guess but he resembles a cross between a spider monkey and a parrot. He is a character from one of my childhood favorite cartoons; The Pirates of Dark Water. As you can see, one of his favorite snacks is Minga Melon.

I am wondering if Niddler was inspired by the Bowie lyric from Moonage Daydream, "you're squawking like a pink monkey bird"

This has absolutely made my night. Not often I find such great art of one of my favorite old time cartoons. Used to watch it when I could.

omg, you are fast becoming my hero!   Are  you doing MORE of PoDW characters then?  After looking through your stuff, I would really, really, really like to see you do more of this.  I loved this show (and let's face it, it really wasn't that well done. But it had pirates, and magic, and pirates, and cool characters, and pirates, etc)

I could just imagine a CGI series like this.  friggin nerdgasm!

Do you know about the first 5 original episodes that were named "Dark Water"?

the original 5 were only released on the Fox TV channel back in '96 under the name "Dark Water". After that they were edited and re-released into a VHS movie under the name "Pirates of Dark Water" and from there into a 21-episode series with the same name.

Yup. I'm a nerd fangirl.
