One Piece Question

I've only watched a few One Piece episodes (and the two movies) and I think it's really pretty good -- nothing like some good, clean and simple action/adventure anime fun.

I have one question, though: who's the pink-haired pirate who apparently took care of Luffy when he was little? Is he his father, and why is he shown alongside a bunch of mean-looking pirate dudes in the opening? Oh, one more: when was it that Luffy ate the Gomu Gomu fruit that gave him his super powers? Did it happen in one of the first episodes?

Hmm, I really should go hunting for a bunch of early episodes, I guess. ^___^

Hum...are you talking about the man with 3 scares and who's missing an arm?
If so he's called shanks (or so in the french version).
Please note that I've only read the manga and didn't watched even 1 ep of the Tv anime. They might have changed the plot like they did in samourai deeper kyo ^^
***********SPOILER****************
Shank's a pirate captain and also Luffy's model. He gave his arm away in order to protect Luffy a long time ago.
Also luffy ate the gomu gomu fruit when he was little (just before shanks lost his arm).
Shanks was keeping the fruit in a little chest but luffy ate it thinking it was a dessert.
Since this event, his body changed forever and he can't float anymore.
************END SPOILER********************
This is the beginning of the 1st tome of One piece

Oh, wait a sec, and Luffy can't swim any more, either, right? That would explain why he sank immediately when he fell into the sea in the Clockwork Island Adventure movie.

One more: what's the deal with this huge duck in Luffy's crew? What's his name? Carue? :D
