Peter Pan & the Pirates is an American animated television series based on J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan that originally aired on Fox Broadcasting Company from September 8, 1990 to September 10, 1991. Repeats continued to air until September 11, 1992. A repeat of the series' Christmas episode was aired on December 25, 1993. The series was then on Fox in re-run form on weekday mornings from November 4, 1996 to March 28, 1997. Reruns were then shown on Fox Family in 1998.
The television show focuses as much on the pirates as it does on Peter Pan. Captain Hook and Mr. Smee traditionally are the only pirates who receive any attention in the story, but here, the other crew members of the Jolly Roger (Robert Mullins, Alf Mason, Gentleman Ignatious Starkey, Billy Jukes, and Cookson) are given distinct personalities and character development. A real force to be reckoned with, Hook is a powerful, temperamental, cultured, intelligent, and charming pirate with an insatiable thirst for vengeance.
Some attention was also given to the Native American characters (no longer called Redskins). They and their customs were often featured in the storyline.
One episode featured Wendy's daughter Jane (who appears at the end of the original play Peter Pan and at the end of the original book Peter and Wendy). Jane, from the future, visits the Neverland. At the end of the episode, Wendy is a little sad because she knows that this existence from her daughter means that one day Wendy will leave Neverland and grow up.
The on-screen title was given as Fox's Peter Pan & the Pirates (Given in promotional materials and advertisements in the UK as Twentieth Century Fox's Peter Pan & the Pirates) as to emphasize the fact that this was an independent production by 20th Century Fox, unrelated to the Disney feature or other previous media incarnations of the Peter Pan property.
- Peter Pan (voiced by Jason Marsden) - The titular protagonist of the series. He has dark brown hair worn in a ponytail. The Peter in this version wears a dark brown costume, which distinguishes him from other versions, in which he normally wears green. He's always up for a challenge and game for adventure no matter how perilous. He sees everything as a game, doesn't notice the bad consequences or his mistakes (he doesn't make any!) and doesn't get wiser after the event. He can't read (which is referenced in the episodes "The Ruby", "Treasure Hunt", "Friday, the thirteenth", "Frau Brumhandel" and "Curly's Laugh") and forgets nearly everything (as seen in "Now Day Party", "Jules Verne Night", "Invisible Tootles", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "Living Pictures" or "Footrace"). As in Barrie's novel "Peter and Wendy" and the other (Movie/TV) versions he can imitate other people's voices, he regularly imitates Hook's voice and saves difficult situations ("The Rake", "The Hook and the Hat", "Plucking of Short Tom" or "Slightly Duped"). He enjoys his confrontations with Captain Hook. Despite his cockiness, recklessness, headstrongness, and selfishness, he still always manages to come through in the end. Even though he may be naive, stubborn and always up for fun and games, he knows and recognizes the danger and cares for his friends ("The coldest cut of all", "The Rake", Slightly in Stone", "The Croc and the Clock", "Plucking of Short Tom", "After the Laughter", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "Wendy and the Croc", "The Great Race", "Slightly Duped", "Friday the Thirteenth" or "Invisible Tootles"). In "Slightly in Stone", he even abandons his trapped boot in order to return in time with the golden acorn needed to save Slightly from remaining stone forever.
- Tinker Bell (voiced by Debi Derryberry) - A red-headed fairy and Peter Pan's sidekick. She's often the more practical of the two and is there for him and the others to get them out of jams if and whenever she can.
- Wendy Darling (voiced by Christina Lange) - A girl who wears a pink dress, has short black hair and crown made of white flowers. She is the oldest of the Darling siblings, her two younger brothers are John and Michael Darling. As in the novel, she's very tidy, can't stand the mess ("Tootles and the Dragon", "Wendy and the Croc", "Stupid Smee" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"), is like a mother for the boys and tells them bedtime stories ("Now Day Party", "Living Pictures", "Curly's Laugh" or "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy"). Peter claims that girls are smarter and more intelligent than boys, and Wendy is often calmer and more mature than the rest of the group ("The Hook and the Hat" or "Count the Chauvin"). She also believes even Captain Hook isn't really a bad person and has feelings ("Hook's Mother's Picture", "Knights of Neverland", "The Dream", "After the Laughter", "Stupid Smee" or "Living Pictures").
- John Darling (voiced by Jack Lynch) - The middle Darling sibling; Wendy's and Michael's brother. He has dark blonde hair and wears a brown bowler hat or derby. He can be seen not only as one of the Darling siblings, but (with his gender and age) also as one of the Lost Boys ("The Great Race", "Curly's Laugh" or especially in "Pirate Boys, Lost Men" where the five Pirates changed their bodies with only four of the Lost Boys - Slightly, Nibs, Curly and Tootles - the Twins didn't get their role in this episode, so the fifth boy who changed his body with a pirate was John). He also shares the bed with them and often fights with the pirates using a magic sword of wood, which always grows again after breaking, as it does with the six Lost Boys.
- Michael Darling (voiced by Whitby Hertford) - Wendy and John's brother and the youngest of the Darling siblings. He has light brown, curly hair and wears blue, overall-like, footy pijamas. As in the novel he is the youngest and smallest of the group and has a big basket as his bed and sometimes he is slower and more frightened, so Peter and the others must look after him ("The coldest cut of all", "Treasure hunt", "Mardi grass", "Pirate Shadows", "The Croc and the Clock", "Tootles and the Dragon", "Stupid Smee", "When Games become deadly", "Dr. Livingstone and Captain Hook" or "The Wind and the Panther"). He loves playing around, having fun ("Now day Party", "A day at the Fair", "Mardi grass") and especially enjoys running after animals ("The Dream" or "Pirate Shadows").
- The Lost Boys - A group of six orphaned boys who are confederated with Peter Pan.
- Nibs (voiced by Adam Carl) - The oldest of the Lost Boys with the most mature voice. He is tall and slim, has blonde hair and wears a cap shaped like a bear's head with the face cut out. He is Peter's second-in-command and makes the orders when Peter is absent ("Slightly duped", "The Girl who lives in the Moon", "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy", "Invisible Tootles", "Immortal Pan", "Demise of Hook", "Peter on Trial" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"). He's the one who is qualified for this role for being the most responsible, sensible and mature when making decisions ("Living Pictures", "Slightly duped", "The Hook and the Hat", "Mardi grass", "Slightly in stone" or "Three Wishes"). However he also likes having fun ("Wendy and the Croc", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "Tootles and the Dragon", "Invisible Tootles" "Stupid Smee" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"), can also act naively and irresponsibly ("Knights of Neverland", "Nibs and the Mermaids" or "Count de Chauvin") and sometimes can be a little too slow and inattentive and doesn't note the danger or everything around him ("Knights of Neverland", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "The Girl who lives in the Moon", "Slightly duped" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"). He knows what to do when acting as the leader ("Slightly duped", "The Girl who lives in the Moon", "Three Wishes" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"), but also listens to Peter and the others when they have other ideas ("Tootles and the Dragon", "Knights of Neverland", "Frau Brumhandel", "Slightly in stone" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men").
- Slightly (voiced by Scott Menville) - The tallest and 2nd oldest Lost Boy. He has pale skin, honeyblonde hair and wears a cap in the shape of a parrot's head. As a reference to his name he constantly uses the word "slightly" in his sentences. His ambition is to be Peter's second-in-command ("Slightly duped" or "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy"), but when he is appointed such, he finds he is not cut out for the position ("Slightly duped"). He is often naive and immature when making decisions which can cause trouble for the others ("Slightly duped"). He sees Peter and the others as his family and also is very important to them ("Slightly in Stone", "The Rake", "The Neverscroll", "Frau Brumhandel" or "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy"). Even if not being the leader he can take the orders ("The Girl who lives in the Moon", "Demise of Hook" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"), knows what to do during a battle and has his role in the gang of Lost Boys, where he knows how to act and behave ("Invisible Tootles", "Seven League Boots", "The Pirate, who came to dinner", "Hook's Mother's Picture" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"). From the Pirate Crew, he is the closest to Billy Jukes ("Billy Jukes, Lost Boy" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men").
- Curly (voiced by Josh Keaton) - A Lost Boy with a cap shaped like a tiger's head with the face cut out. He has a tanned complexion, dark brown hair and a very slim figure. He likes having fun ("Curly's Laugh", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "The Great Race", "Invisible Tootles", "Hook's Mother's Picture", "Friday, the thirteenth" and "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"), is very believable ("Friday the Thirteenth") and doesn't want to be seen by the others as useless or clumsy ("Friday, the thirteenth"). He tries to act in a more determined and independent manner ("The Great Race", "Stupid Smee", "Knights of Neverland", "Slightly Duped", "Count the Chauvin" or "Friday, the thirteenth").
- The Twins (voiced by Aaron Lohr and Michael Bacall) - Two Lost Boys who aren't identical, aside from both wearing caps in the shape of a leopard's head with cut-outs in the front for their faces. Individually (and only in the written language) they're known as Tall Twin and Short Twin, their heights being the main distinction. Other distinctions are their complexions and hair color, Tall Twin having a darker complexion and black curly hair, and Short Twin having lighter skin and red straight hair. Short Twin looks a little plumper than his bigger brother. They're so synchronised that they accomplish more when they work together and often finish each other's sentences. They also do practical everything together and are never apart ("Tootles and the Dragon", "Knights of Neverland", "Slightly duped", "The Croc and the Clock", "Curly's Laugh" or "Pirate Shadows"). They are known as the mechanics and inventors in the group ("The Great Race", "Jules Verne Night", "Hook the Faithful Son", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "When games become deadly", "After the Laughter", "Vanity, thy name is Mermaid", "Invisible Tootles", "Stupid Smee", "The Letter", "The Croc and the Clock", "Evicted" and "Dr. Livingstone and Captain Hook"). In the episode "The Great Race", they fall out and find themselves unable to act normally, as they would when together, and their inventions fall apart.
- Tootles (voiced by Chris M. Allport) - The youngest of the Lost Boys who wears a cap in the shape of a panda's head with face cut-out and has a black blotch around his left eye. He is very small and has a round stomach, but because he loves eating and always finds time for this ("Tootles and the Dragon", "Now Day Party", "The Croc and the clock", "The Great Race" or "Dr. Livingstone and Captain Hook"). As created by Barrie he's often clumsy which can cause problems for the others when looking for adventures ("Tootles and the Dragon", "Tootles the Bold", "Slightly Duped", "First Encounter", "Invisible Tootles" or "The Croc and the clock"). He can also become too sensitive, especially when getting judged or not noticed by the others ("Tootles and the Dragon" or "Invisible Tootles"). Even though he has his role in the group, knows what to do when fighting ("Knights of Neverland", "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy", "The Demise of Hook" or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men"), can come out with the idea how to save the situation ("Slightly in stone", "Tootles, the bold" or "Invisible Tootles") and as referred to in the episode "Tootles and the Dragon" he's the most patient of the group. Of the Lost Boys, he is the one who is the closest to Michael ("Treasure Hunt", "Stupid Smee" or "Slightly in Stone").
- Captain James Algernon Cloudesley Hook (voiced by Tim Curry) - The main antagonist of the series and Peter Pan's nemesis. As his name implies, James Hook is the head of his pirate crew. Although he's well known for his ruthless and nefarious nature, the Hook in this version is more complex and in many ways closer to the portrayal in Barrie's book. References to Peter Pan feeding Captain Hook's hand to the crocodile is still intact. Rather than the traditional long black hair (or wig) and long moustache, this Hook is clean-shaven and has his white hair styled in the manner of a powdered wig. In contrast to his bumbling crew, Hook is very much the aristocrat, and is very well read and charming in a sinister way. He also is very good at playing a harpsichord, despite the loss of his hand. Two members of his Family are mentioned: his brother Patch, who owned his own Pirate Ship called "The Rake", and his mother, who is referred to as having had some unfulfilled wishes about her son James and being already dead, the only thing left of her memory being a portrait that Hook has in his cabin, but never is shown completely ("Hook's Mother's Picture", "Eternal Youth" or "The Letter").
- Smee (voiced by Ed Gilbert in an Irish accent) - Captain Hook's loyal Bosun and the closest he has to a friend, although he rarely seems to appreciate it. Smee's weapon is a sword he names Johnny Corkscrew. He is small, but not very fat, has grey hair and pale blue eyes. The main difference from the other pirates is that he is often clumsy and not really able to capture one of the Lost Boys (as seen in "Slightly Duped" and "Play Ball").
- "Gentleman" Ignatious P. Starkey (voiced by David Shaughnessy) - A foppish, gentlemanly English member of Hook's crew who is believed to be the first mate. He speaks with a "dash-it-all" accent, is very good with an epée, and in "A Day at the Fair" we learn he is also a good pugilist.
- Robert Mullins (voiced by Jack Angel) - A member of Captain Hook's crew who hails from Brooklyn, and tends to clash with his leader more than anyone else on the ship. Although he has referred to Captain Hook as "the finest pirate who ever lived", he sometimes schemes to take over command. He also is deeply superstitious and prone to landsickness ("The Girl, who lives in the Moon" or "Invisible Tootles"). Robert is good friends with Billy Jukes and has taught him about pirating. He is big, muscular, has brown hair, a long face, long mustachios, and a scar on his left eye. He is very good in swordfighting.
- Billy Jukes (voiced by Eugene Williams) - The ship's gunner and the youngest pirate who is of Old World/Indian descent. He was once a castaway on a desert island until he was rescued by Captain Hook's crew and was taught pirating by Robert Mullins, to whom he is very loyal. He is slim, has dark skin and black hair that often conceals one eye. As being responsible for the cannons he is never far away from the big cannon, Long Tom. He cares to keep it clean ("The Hook and the Hat" or "Plucking of Short Tom") and sometimes also sleeps on it ("Treasure Hunt" or "Pirate Shadows"). Not once does he cooperate with Peter and his band where it can come out for him as being a liar and traitor ("The Great Race"), but sometimes he shows he really has a good heart and cares for the boys ("Hook, the Faithful Son" or "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy").
- Eucrates Cookson (voiced by Jack Angel in a Greek accent) - The ship's disgusting chef. He is fat and small and a miserable singer ("Hook's Mother's Picture" and "The Phantom Shaman"). His weapon of choice is his meat cleaver.
- Alf Mason (voiced by Tony Jay) — A member of Hook's crew who serves as a carpenter and a strongman. Although he fears Hook as much as the rest of the crew, if the pirates are doubtful about an order from the captain, he is usually the first to voice it. He wields a mallet.
- Short Tom - Captain Hook's mischievous one-eyed pet parrot. Is capable of speaking, but is limited to phrases obviously taught to him. Frequently tries to alert the pirates when he sees Peter Pan sneak aboard in episodes including "Hook's Mother's Picture", but because of his limited speech usually fails to get them to understand.
- Captain Patch - aka Jasper Hook is the older brother of James Hook, who once served as his midshipman. Hook took out Jasper's eye years ago when Jasper wouldn't give James a bigger share of their loot, and he wore a patch ever since, which is why he is known as Captain Patch. Presumably Patch died not long afterwards, and his chest of treasures somehow ended up hidden in a cave in Neverland with a curse. When Peter, John, and Slightly found the lost chest and removed an emerald, it ended up summoning Captain Patch's ghost who then summoned his ghost ship called the Rake in order to take revenge on his brother. Nothing that Captain Hook's crew shot at the Rake could sink it due to the fact that the Rake is a ghost ship. When Peter Pan, John, and Slightly tricked Hook into firing the treasure towards the Rake, it was enough to banish Captain Patch and the Rake back to the spirit world. Jasper later appeared in "Hook's Christmas" where the Ghost of Christmas Past shows Captain Hook his past when he used to work with his brother until the incident that led up to Jasper's loss of an eye. His spirit later appeared as the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come. (It should be noted Patch and his ship appeared somewhat different in each of the two episodes.)
- Crocodile - This was the same crocodile that had devoured Captain Hook's hand. A ticking clock is heard every time the crocodile is near. In the series, the clock is a magical clock that controls all the seasons in Neverland.
- Indians - A tribe of Indians that reside in Neverland and often help out Peter Pan and the Lost Boys. Actually, only three of them figure prominently in the series, the rest were seen only briefly in the episode "Pirate Boys, Lost Men").
- Great Big Little Panther (voiced by Michael Wise) - The Indian chief and father of Tiger Lily and Hard-To-Hit. He's very wise and often assists Peter and his friends when they have (some big) problems (as seen in the episodes "The Dream", "The Phantom Shaman", "Treasure Hunt", and "Pirate Boys, Lost Men").
- Tiger Lily (voiced by Cree Summer) - The daughter of Great Big Little Panther and sister of Hard-To-Hit. She and her brother sometimes tag along with and aid their friends Peter Pan, Tinker Bell, The Darling Siblings and The Lost Boys on their many adventures.
- Hard-to-Hit (voiced by Aaron Lohr) - Great Big Little Panther's son and Tiger Lily's younger brother. He is very active and knows the weapons of his tribe and how to use them (as seen in the episodes "The Phantom Shaman" and "The Dream").
- Mermaids - A group of young women, who are half human and half fish. They live in the sea and are most seen at the Mermaids' Lagoon or nearby. They're vain and care for their looks and good appearance (as seen in "Vanity, the name is Mermaid"). They enjoy playing, joking and having fun (as seen in "Nibs and the Mermaids") and collecting items from the land (as seen in "Tootles and the Dragon"). From all the humans who live above the water they only like Peter and no-one else (as seen in "Vanity, the name is Mermaid", "The Great Race", "Nibs and the Mermaids", "After the Laughter", or "Pirate Boys, Lost Men").
- Crooked Tail (voiced by Linda Gary) - A mermaid. She was once beautiful, but conceited and haughty until a potion to enhance her beauty went horribly awry turning her into a green-skinned hag. In "Vanity, Thy Name is Mermaid," she helped Peter Pan rescue Wendy from two mermaids who tried to turn Wendy into a mermaid.
- Girl in the Moon (voiced by Kath Soucie) - A blond girl in a turquoise dress who is responsible for bringing the night by replacing the sun that appears during the day with the moon at the normal time.
- King Kyros (voiced by Jack Angel) - The Ice King of Neverland (who only appears in the episode "The Coldest Cut of All"). He owns a giant ice cave with lots of corridors and tunnels and has some elves as his subworkers. In fact he's not one of the bad guys. The conflict with him was started by Peter, who just entered the king's home without any permission and took away a crystal claiming it was his own.
- Jane - Wendy's daughter from the future. She appears in "The Lost Memories of Pirate Pan".
- Olook (voiced by Jack Angel) - A grumpy giant troll. He appears in "The Never Ark", "Slightly in Stone", "The Neverscroll", "A Day at the Fair" and "Count De Chauvin".
The following show the differences from the book or other Peter Pan versions:
- This series doesn't feature a beginning introducing the whole Darling family nor explain how Peter takes Wendy to Neverland. From the first episode they already live in the underground house, know Hook and the pirates and are friends with the Indians.
- In other versions, Peter always wears his dagger next to his waist at the belt, but in this version he has it attached to his right boot.
- In the book, Tinker Bell has her own "fairy language", which Peter understands. Likewise, she doesn't speak in most other versions (Disney's Peter Pan, Peter Pan (2003) or Peter Pan Burbank) but makes tinkling or other sounds. In this version and some others (The Adventures of Peter Pan or The new Adventures of Peter Pan), she can speak normally.
- In the novel, Barrie describes Tinker Bell's figure as somewhat plump - "She was slightly inclined to embonpoint", but in this version (and most of the others), she is portrayed as slim.
- In Barrie's novel and other versions Captain Hook's hair is black, but here it is white. In the episode "After the Laughter" Hook's hair is shown as fair in his youth, not black.
- In most other versions ("Disney's Peter Pan", "Peter Pan Burbank" or "The Adventures of Peter Pan") Captain Hook becomes frightened, panicked and almost petrified when hearing the ticking of a clock, indicating that the crocodile is close. In this version his behavior is inconsistent. Hook often is ready to brodle, when he notes the presence of the croc.
- In the original book and some other versions, John wears a (black) stovepipe hat ("Disney's Peter Pan", "Peter Pan (2003)" or "The Adventures of Peter Pan"). Here, he has a (brown) derby.
- The look of the figures is not much described by J.M. Barrie, but in most of the other versions Wendy is either blonde ("The Adventures of Peter Pan" or "Peter Pan Burbank") or has at least lighter hair ("Disney's Peter Pan" or "Peter Pan (2003)") and from the Darling siblings the lightest hair colour ("Peter Pan (2003)", "The Adventures of Peter Pan", "Peter Pan Burbank" or "The New Adventures of Peter Pan") while frequently her brother John has the darkest hair colour ("Disney's Peter Pan", "Peter Pan (2003)" or "Peter Pan Burbank"). In "Peter Pan and the Pirates" Wendy with black hair has the darkest and John being dark blonde has the lightest haircolour from the Darling siblings.
- As described in the novel and in some other versions ("Disney's Peter Pan", "Peter Pan (2003)" or "Peter Pan Burbank"), the Twins, two of the Lost Boys, are identical twins, however in this version they look very different. They are recognized as Twins by wearing similar caps and doing everything together.
- In other Peter Pan movies or series in Neverland only Peter is able to fly all the time, while the Darlings only do it for coming there ("Disney's Peter Pan", "The Adventures of Peter Pan", "Peter Pan (2003)" or "Peter Pan Burbank") and everyone else can fly only when Tink gives them her fairy dust, effective only for a finite period of time (Disney's Return to Neverland or "The New Adventures of Peter Pan"). In "Peter Pan and the Pirates" not only Peter, but also his closest friends, the Darlings and the Lost Boys, can fly all the time.
