Peter Pan and the Pirates

Peter Pan and the Pirates is an animated television series based on J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan that aired on Fox from September 1990 to December 1991. Since its original run, it has become a minor cult classic.

As the title indicates, this TV 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. Yet here, the other crew members of the Jolly Roger (Robert Mullins, Alf Mason, Gentleman Jim Starkey, Billy Jukes, and Cookson) are given distinct personalities and character development. It is also said in one episode that Billy Jukes is a former lost boy, which would explain why he looks so young. But none could ever hope to overshadow his menacing captain. A real force to be reckoned with, Hook is a powerful, temperamental, cultured, intelligent, and charming pirate with an insatiable thirst for vengeance.

The story more closely followed that of the original novel Peter and Wendy than the previous Disney version and was targeted to an older audience, which meant the occasional dark storyline.

The actual on-screen title is Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates, so named to emphasize the fact this was an independent production by Fox's animation division, unrelated to the Disney feature or other previous media incarnations of the Peter Pan property.

Tim Curry won an Emmy for his portrayal of Hook.

Release

Several DVD sets are available for pre-order and are scheduled to be released in the UK on January 1st, 2020 (approximately twelve years from now).

Video game

A video game titled Peter Pan and the Pirates was released for the NES by third party publisher THQ. The game was generally received poorly by critics.

In this single player side-scrolling action game, the player controlled Peter Pan, who could collect bags of fairy dust to fly and had a sword that boasted a short range (though to be fair, Peter in the TV show also used a short bladed sword as his main weapon). The player started out in the forest and was required to destroy all the pirates in each level to advance to the next, with the final goal of getting to the pirate ship and battling Captain Hook.
