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.

Weekly Wiki: Mobey Dick

July 13th, 2011 by | No comments

If you ever visit Blood Island and are invited to tea at Mort’s house you can see his poster of the book Mobey Dick. Guybrush doesn’t think much of it and describes it as a “really trashy horror novel. Trust me. It’ll never sell.

It is, of course, a parody of Moby-Dick, a classic piece of American literature about a sailor obsessively trying to kill a white whale who took his leg. It was written by Herman Melville in 1851.
