Joining previously released Captain Jack Sparrow (Open Edition) and Captain Barbossa (2007 Winter Premiere Event Numbered Limited Edition of 2,500) are Elizabeth Swann (Numbered Limited Edition of 1,000) and Will Turner and an Opening Title (both Open Edition).
Captain Jack Sparrow and Captain Barbossa were sculpted by Tim Bruckner. Elizabeth Swann and Will Turner were sculpted by Joel Harlow.
As with the previous releases from this series, Goofy ("One-Man Band") a Numbered Limited Edition (NLE) of 1,000 was sculpted by Bruce Lau.
The opening theme, "The Mickey Mouse March", was written by the show's primary adult host, Jimmie Dodd. It was also reprised at the end of each episode, with the slower "Now it's time to say goodbye" verse. A shorter version of the opening title was used later in the series, in syndication and on Disney Channel reruns. Dodd also wrote many other songs used in individual segments over the course of the series.
Although the show was filmed and broadcast in black and white, all of the animated segments - the opening theme, Mickey's introductions and farewells, the Jiminy Cricket shorts, etc. - were filmed in color. Below is the opening sequence (in color) courtesy of YouTube.com:
