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 four year old son absolutely loves this show. So does my one year old daughter. I think it is cute and different. I wish were able to find toys, but I'm sure they will come out eventually. It is somewhat educational, which is always a plus. My son loves to sing along and knows all the characters by name. It is a great alternative to pirate shows that are too "grown up" for kids. I think the voices of the characters are well done. The only thing I don't care for is the two real men who sing at the end dressed like pirates, it's a little strange. All in all I think Disney did a great job. I hope it does not get canceled, we would be sad!
