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.

Disney missed the boat on this one (literally). It has no redeeming educational value and our child is annoyed with it completely. He'll ask for Mickey Mouse, but as soon as this show starts he asks for something else. We usually use the time to go outside or read a story, so it's been good for that...but, with all the possibilities that exist in Neverland, Disney didn't use it to full effect.
If it has any redeeming quality whatsoever, the voices of Captain Hook and Ensign Smee are actually really good imitations of some very difficult voices from the original movie. Too bad that's not enough to make it watchable.
And all of this may sound harsh, but come on! It's Disney!! They should know better!!!
