Admiral Boom


In the Disney film, we are first introduced to Admiral Boom by Bert. Admiral Boom lives on Cherry Tree Lane and is known for his punctuality. He also pays very close attention to changes in wind direction and makes sure to keep Mary Poppins and the rest of Cherry Tree Lane updated. He shoots off gun shot blasts at specific times during the day that shake the neighborhood.

Memorable Quotes from Mary PoppinsEdit

Bert: Now this imposin' edifice what first meets the eye is the 'ome of Admiral Boom, late of His Majesty's Navy. Likes his house ship-shape, he does. Shipe-shape and Bristol fashion at all times!

Admiral Boom: Time Gun ready?

Mr. Binnacle: Ready and charged, Sir.

Admiral Boom: Three minutes and six seconds.

Mr. Binnacle: Aye, aye, sir.

Bert: What he's famous for is punctuality. The whole world takes its time from Greenwich, but Greenwich, they say, takes its time from Admiral Boom. Wotcher, Admiral!

Admiral Boom: Good afternoon to you, young man. Where are you bound?

Bert: Number 17. Got some parties 'ere in tow what wants to see it.

Admiral Boom: Enter that in the log.

Mr. Binnacle: Aye, aye, sir.

Admiral Boom: A word of advice, young man. Storm signals are up at number 17. Bit of heavy weather brewing there.

Bert: Thanks, sir. Keep an eye skinned. [continues walking]

Bert:b Here we are, 17 Cherry Tree Lane, home of George Banks Esquire. [screaming and shouting is heard from the house]

Bert: 'Ello, 'ello, 'ello. Admiral's right. Heavy weather brewin' at number 17 and no mistake.
