Corey Burton was initially unsure about being able to play Captain Hook in a program for pre-schoolers.

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 4 yr old and 6 yr old daughters LOVE this show. I've recorded all the episodes and they watch them daily. They sing along to the songs and know the words to all the episodes. We're not big Disney channel viewers because my girls prefer Nickeoleon, but this one Disney exception.
I think Disney was attempting to come up with a suitable option to Nickelodeon's Spongebob Squarepants and I think they succeeded. Spongebob doesn't have any educational qualities but at least Jake and the Neverland Pirates allows kids to count and use deductive reasoning. In addition, I think that Disney is trying to "ride the tide" of the Pirates of the Caribbean success and the interest that children have in pirates.
Good job Disney.
