Weekly Wiki: Old Blind Pew

October 25th, 2011 by | 1 lonely comment

Old Blind Pew (also known in-game as “old dog”) is an old, unwashed dog that Guybrush finds in the Blood Island cemetery. He really does seem to be blind since he wears smoked spectacles and has to sniff around to find treats; Guybrush says he’s “not very social.” He sleeps in a coffin doghouse and appears to be Mort the Gravedigger‘s pet.

In order to cure Griswold Goodsoup‘s hangover, Guybrush has to find “hair of the dog that bit ‘ya.” So he offers Old Blind Pew dog treats (in the regular version) or a half-eaten maggoty biscuit (in the Mega-Monkey challenge). Pew chomps down on it and, during the process, bites his arm. Guybrush is also able to easily get some of Old Blind Pew’s shedding dog hair.

    Despite what the article says, I think that Pew has this nickname in irony, since pew is a church bench, and while church is usually related to good behaviour, Pew is as cruel as he is blind.
    Well, that’s what the version of the book that I read told me, anyway.
