Swiss Family Robinson

Synopsis: A family in route to New Guinea is shipwrecked on a deserted tropical island. They are forced to remain on the island because of the damage to the ship and the pirates that are roaming the islands. They create a home on the island (centering around a huge tree house) and explore the island and its wildlife. Plenty of adventure ensues as the family deals with issues of survival and pirates, and the brothers must learn how to live on the island with an uncertain future.

We're not too badly off, are we?

We've got each other, the family,

- food to eat.

- Even a tent to keep the rain off,

if we had sense enough to use it.

Now don't worry. Try to go back to


I'm soaked!

- Having trouble?

- I'll get it down,

but it may take a while.


Wait a minute. Hold him.


I keep trying to tell her

it's for her own good.

A ship! There's a ship!

Ahoy! Ahoy there!

I think they've seen us.

Take a look, Fritz.

- There's something on the sail...

- I knew it.

It's the pirate ship that chased us

into the storm. Get down!

And I deliberately tried

to get their attention.

This time we have a weapon.

- Do you know how to fire it?

- I think so. Let's pull it back.

I'll get a keg of powder. See if you

can find some rags, for wadding.

I know. I'll be right back.

We'll only have one shot. Let's wait

until we can't possibly miss.

- What's happening?

- They're going away.

Did they see us loading

the cannon and get scared?

Pirates scared off by one cannon

and three people?

Do you know what they're up to?

What's that?

A quarantine flag,

warning there's Black Death aboard.

How did you know that?

Well, I do a bit of reading too.

Come on, Fritz.

- Pull those new lines tight.

- Right.

Yes, that's it. There.

No! What's the matter with you?

Not that way, stupid. This way.

- Maybe it's too much for one trip.

- We had to try.


- You got one!

- Watch that one coming in.

- There's another one.

- I'll get it.

- I hit it!

- Here comes another one!

Get out of here!

Got one.

Look out, Ernst, there's another.

- No, it's a turtle.

- We disturbed him with our shots.

I think we scared them away.

It's pulling us!

Better to use your head

than break your back, I always say.
