Captain James Hook is a fictional character, the main antagonist of J. The character is a pirate captain of the brig Jolly Roger. His two principal fears are the sight of his own blood supposedly an unnatural colour and the crocodile who pursues him after eating the hand cut off by Pan.
An iron hook replaced his severed hand, which gave the pirate his name. Hook did not appear in early drafts of the play, wherein the capricious and coercive Peter Pan was closest to a "villain", but was created for a front-cloth scene a cloth flown well downstage in front of which short scenes are played while big scene changes are 'silently' carried out upstage  depicting the children's journey home.
Later, Barrie expanded the scene, on the premise that children were fascinated by pirates, and expanded the role of the captain as the play developed. The character was originally cast to be played by Dorothea Bairdthe actress playing Mary Darlingbut Gerald du Maurieralready playing George Darling and the brother of Sylvia Llewelyn Daviespersuaded Barrie to let him take the additional role instead,  a casting tradition since replicated in many stage and film productions of the Peter Pan story.
According to A. WilsonBarrie "openly acknowledged Hook and his obsession with the crocodile was an English version of Ahab ",  and there are other borrowings from Melville.
Barrie states in the novel that "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze". He is said to be " Blackbeard 's bo'sun " and "the only man of whom Barbecue was afraid". In the novel, Hook's last words are a similarly upper-class "bad form", in disapproval of the way Peter Pan beats him by throwing him overboard.
The book relates that Peter Pan began the ongoing rivalry between them by feeding the pirate's hand to a crocodile. After getting a taste of Hook, the crocodile pursues him relentlessly, but the ticking clock it has also swallowed warns Hook of its presence. Hook is described as "cadaverous" and "blackavised", with "eyes which were of the blue of the forget-me-not " "save when he was plunging his hook into you, at which time two red spots appeared in them and lit them up horribly" and long dark curls resembling "black candles".
In many pantomime performances of Peter PanHook's hair is a wig and is accompanied by thick bushy eyebrows and moustache. The hook is fixed to his right hand often changed to the left hand in film adaptations and is used as a weapon. He is also described as having a "handsome countenance" and an "elegance of Barrie describes "an attire associated with the name of Charles IIhaving heard it said in some earlier period of his career that he bore a strange resemblance to the ill-fated Stuarts".
Hook's cigar holder enables him to smoke two cigars at once. Barrie also stated in "Captain Hook at Eton" that he was, "in a word, the handsomest man I have ever seen, though, at the same time, perhaps slightly disgusting". Although Hook is callous and bloodthirsty, Barrie makes it clear that these qualities make him a magnificent pirate and "not wholly unheroic". In the animated film Peter PanHook is a far more comical villain than the original character: he is seen as a vain coward with a childish temper who is prone to crying out in terror.
During the film's early development, the story department analysed Hook's character as "a fop Yet very mean, to the point of being murderous. This combination of traits should cause plenty of amusement whenever he talks or acts". Frank Thomas was the directing animator of Hook.
One director insisted that Hook should be a darker villain with no comedic traits; but this was refused for fear of frightening a juvenile audience, and Hook became a comical villain, equally matched with Peter Pan.
Actor Hans Conried set the tone for Disney's interpretation of Hook, as he was the original voice for the Captain, as well as, in the tradition of the stage play, Mr.Captain Hook laments Peter Pan 's role in causing the Crocodile to follow him, due to Peter cutting off his hand and throwing it to Tick-Tock. Hook manages to escape from the croc's jaws, but as he tries to flee, the Jolly Roger 's flag causes the captain to become disoriented and is swallowed by Tick-Tock again.
Quickly, the young panther races to the lair to show his friends. Bagheera believes that Khan is merely jealous of his new charm, and that Louie would like to claim it for himself.
It wasn't until the charm caused a fire within the lair that Bagheera realized Khan spoke the truth. Tick-Tock then arises from the water, hiccupping with ticking noises as a way to indicate who he is to the audience.
The alarm clock only appeared in the episode " Mickey vs. One of the places Mickey searches is in Tick-Tock's mouth, revealing the clock. The alarm clock only makes two cameos in the sequel.
The first one is at the beginning of the film, where a silhouette of Tick-Tock is seen in the clouds with the clock in his stomach. The final cameo is when Captain Hook and his pirate crew are returning to Neverland through the " Second Star to the Right ", alarm clocks are shown briefly.
Additionally, after the Octopus acquires a taste for Hook, he develops a habit of popping the suction cups on his tentacles, reminiscent of the ticking of the clock in the Crocodile's belly.
While the clock itself hasn't made any physical appearance in the Disney Junior spin-off, it can still be heard ticking within Tick-Tock's stomach, alerting Hook and everyone else when he is near. In the Tinker Bell film The Pirate Fairythe clock's origins are revealed: it was the prized possession of the pirate cook Oppenheimera member of James' crew.
Later, after James reveals his true colors to Zarinathe ticking sound of the clock grows louder under James' cabin. Much to James' annoyance, he bellows down to Oppenheimer that the ticking is driving him mad alluding the future torment it would play on him.
Oppenheimer tries throwing a handkerchief over the clock to stop it from ticking so loudly. The alarm clock is last seen during the fairies' attack on James' ship. While Oppenheimer was trying to defend himself from Rosetta and the infant crocodile who would go on to become Tick-Tockthe clock is thrown by the cook, but it is instead swallowed by the croc, causing him to tick as he smiles, apparently enjoying his newfound trait.
While the clock is being tossed around by the performers, an instrumental version of the song " Never Smile at a Crocodile " is heard. Christmas: Mickey's Most Merriest Celebration.

He is a croc of monstrous proportions that dwells on the isle of Neverland. After swallowing the hand of Captain Hook who lost it while battling Peter PanTick-Tock has been in pursuit of the villainous captain in hopes of devouring the rest of him. However, the crocodile also swallowed an alarm clock at some point, and its constant ticking acts as something of a warning for the ever-fearful Hook. Tick-Tock was born several years before the events of Peter Panhatching on the shores of Neverland.
He was adopted by a fairy named Rosettaan early ally of Peter Pan's pixie companion Tinker Bellwhom he mistook for his mother. Not long after being born, the young crocodile found himself aboard the ship of a young pirate captain named James, who would one day become the feared Captain Hook. During his escapade aboard James' ship, the crocodile accidentally swallowed the alarm clock of one of the crew members, thus gaining his iconic nickname. The ship adventure would also lead to Tick-Tock's first encounter with Hook, believing the captain was a codfish, prompting him to snap and chase after him in the seas.
Years later, Tick-Tock would eventually grow to a monstrous size considering he is a crocodileand his never-ending pursuit to have another taste of James continued.
One day, however, James' hand was cut off in battle by Peter Pan, and fed to Tick-Tock as a snack, thus fueling the croc's hunger even further. Fortunately for James, now known as Captain Hook after the loss of his hand, the ticking alarm clock in Tick-Tock's stomach gives a warning whenever the croc is near, allowing Hook to prepare himself for the danger moments away.
The Crocodile is a green saltwater crocodile with sharp teeth, dark spikes on his back, long tail, amber eyes, short legs, and makes a tick-tock sound with his tail or his eyes popping up with sound as well. Most of the Crocodile's animation was done by lead Disney animator Wolfgang Reithermanwho was best known for directing action scenes in Disney animated features. Captain Hook laments Peter Pan's role in causing the crocodile to follow him, due to Peter cutting off his hand and throwing it to the crocodile.
Tick-Tock found it so delicious he's following him ever since, licking his chops for the rest of Hook. Tick-Tock suddenly shows up next to the ship. Hook hears the clock ticking and his eyebrows and pointing mustache begin twitching in rhythm with the music of " Never Smile at a Crocodile ".
The crocodile's eyes begin popping up to the tune, sending Hook into a panic. The crocodile then emerges from the water onto a rock rubbing his belly and licking his lips, accompanied by a wide smile towards the captain. Hook then screams for Mr. Smee to save him, and Smee shoos off the crocodile.
The crocodile then frowns and wiggles his tail to the ticking clock while sulking away.Create an account to contribute to this site! The crocodile is Captain Hook 's great nemesis. She swallowed his hand after Peter Pan chopped it off, and liked the taste of it so much that she now follows Hook around, hoping to eat the rest of him. The croc also swallowed a clock, thus giving off a tell-tale ticking sound as she approaches.
She is often erroneously thought to be a male, but Barrie states female. In comics published later on, her character was known as Tick-Tock the Croc. In the books Peter and the Starcatchers the crocodile was called Mr.Peter Pan: The Animated Series - The Crocodile's Clock
Grin by the redskins. In the film HookCaptain Hook has killed the crocodile and made it into the foundation for a clock tower. But he is still gripped with fear when he hears a clock ticking, and keeps a collection of clocks he has broken.
In his duel with Peter, Hook is held at bay by a circle of Lost Boys holding clocks, and is apparently "eaten" by the crocodile, which seems to temporarily come back to life and engulf him.
In the film, the croc is a giant reptile, maybe Deinosuchus. John and Michael meet the croc in a cave of the jungle and after waking the sleeping reptile, they are nearly eaten.
The croc comes in to the Black Castle and attacks Hook just as he wants to kill the injured Peter. At the end the croc appears under the flying, tortured Captain, who has too many bad thoughts about flying and thus falls into the mouth as the longed-for treat.
In the SyFy Channel's version Neverland There are many crocodiles, all much bigger than any normal crocodile, with four pairs of legs. The Kaw indian tribe hunts the crocodiles and serves their meat to the Lost Boys when they stay with them. One specific crocodile eats Hook's hand and his pocket watch, but there is never a clear distinction if this crocodile is special or different from the rest. Commonly referred to as Tic Toc, the Disney version of the crocodile is less frightening than most.
It is male unlike the original book, and often acts very personified. He appears to have a relationship with Peter, seeing as they hold a short conversation when Peter is fighting Hook in Skull Rock.
Tic Toc also appears to be at least somewhat "polite" in that he respects Mr. Smee when he tells him to shoo. Smee comments that "at least the crocodile had manners" when the octopus squirts him with water as Mr.
Smee tries to shoo it away. This Crocodile does appear to have only eyes and stomach for Captain Hook, as he never attacks anything or anyone else that enters the water. In the television series Peter Pan and the PiratesHook has great respect for his enemy, hating her more than fearing her. This version of the crocodile does is just as eager to eat the Lost Boys as to eat Hook. In Peter Pan in ScarletHook survived in the belly of the crocodile. When the muscle contractions meant to crush and digest him broke the vial of poison he kept with him at all times, that killed the crocodile, and Hook used his hook to claw out.
