Corey Burton was initially unsure about being able to play Captain Hook in a program for pre-schoolers. He then realized he simply had to emphasize the comedy aspects of Hook's characterization, while still managing to remain faithful to Hans Conried's interpretation. Burton credits a large part of his achievement to his chemistry with Jeff Bennett, who voices Mr. Smee and first came up with the idea of playing the two characters as if they were a vaudeville comedy duo.

My three year old son LOVES this show. He gets such a kick out of the counting, and the kids. Afterward he pretend-plays that he's a pirate and acts out scenes from the show. I find the music to be amusing and fresh, and not annoying like most kids' music.
My observation is that the world and activities the kids get into remind me of a video game. Jumping on turtles and moving platforms, for example, is classic adventure-video game fodder, as is collecting coins.
The show encourages kids to jump and play along with them, and not so bad as Dora and other shows which break the fourth wall to encourage audience participation.
Give it a chance. If you're the parent of a young boy, I think it's a winner.
