This old man lived in a houseboat in the Blue Bayou. He sat outside in a rocking chair on the porch, smoking a pipe, while an occupant inside the houseboat tuned a banjo and played songs, including "Oh! Susanna" and "Camptown Races."
Behind the scenes
- This character does not appear in the Magic Kingdom version of the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. However, the same figure can be seen in another attraction - the Rivers of America - where he is named "Beacon Joe." He is dressed the same way, and sits in a rocking chair on the porch of his shack, holding a pipe. Whether or not that name also applies to the old man from the Blue Bayou is unknown.
- In Pirates of the Caribbean: The Visual Guide and The Complete Visual Guide, there was a picture included from Dead Man's Chest of an old man sitting in a rocking chair and smoking a pipe on the porch of a shack on the Pantano River. This shot is currently unseen in the film.
- Two more songs for the unseen banjo player were added during the 2006 refurbishment: "Yo Ho (A Pirate's Life for Me)" and the "Jack Sparrow" theme.
