Ocean City, Maryland: Muffler Man - Pirate

A rare Muffler Man bad guy guards the entrance to Jolly Roger Amusement Park, although his goofy little hat makes him look surprisingly unthreatening for a 20-foot-tall pirate. He's been here since 1964.

He is still standing, disguised behind that silly pirate costume, but you can tell his empty hands (the sword is gone) long for a muffler. He still stands watch over the Jolly Roger "Amusement" Park.

The Jolly Roger Muffler Man has changed duds yet again, now sporting a lovely black vest and brown trousers. And his sword is gone - now he holds nothing. Still in front of the Jolly Roger Amusement Park.

The Jolly Roger Muffler man at the mini golf in Ocean City has changed clothes. Gee, that opens a lot of questions to me....where is his dressing room, for one. I don't know, I liked his old duds better.

I too was intrigued by the recent article in the Smithsonian. Your web site is great. I recently spent the weekend in Ocean City, MD and located the Pirate version. It is located at 30th Street & Coastal Highway. He stands in front of the Jolly Rogers Amusement Park.

Muffler Man - Pirate

I can verify that in Ocean City, Maryland there is a Pirate with a Bunyan face, hands standard configuration holding a cutlass. He stands above the entrance to a small, cheezy entertainment complex called Jolly Roger Amusement Park at 30th St & Coastal Hwy. I've been staring at him for at least 20 years. He was still up last summer.
