* AdaptationalWimp: Captain Hook, MemeticBadass and much-loved villain of ''Disney/PeterPan'' comes back to menace the kid heroes of the [[FakeInteractivity Dora-esque]] show missing about half his brain cells and with a somewhat off-putting redesign. Granted, Hook has [[FridgeBrilliance always had trouble defeating children]], but in this case it is particularly glaring.

'''''Jake and the Never Land Pirates''''' is a 2011 animated series airing on [[DisneyChannel Disney Junior]], one of three new programs that helped to launch the network along with ''WesternAnimation/BabarAndTheAdventuresOfBadou'' and ''WesternAnimation/TingaTingaTales''. Set in the universe of the classic Disney film ''Disney/PeterPan'', the program focuses on the adventures of the young Jake and his two friends, Cubby and Izzy, along with their parrot, Skully. They're a group of "[[ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything pirates]]" who just want to have fun and do the things ordinary kids do, but their time is often spent chasing after Captain Hook, who is always trying to steal their stuff. Hook is "aided" by his usual bumbling sidekick, [[MinionWithAnFInEvil Smee]] and Bones & Sharky, two even-more-dimwitted pirates who seem to exist for little more than to swab the deck and sing comic songs. The program contains occasional references to Peter Pan and Tinker Bell and later episodes sometimes contain appearances by them as well. One of the specials even featured Wendy, John and Michael.

* {{Expy}}: Clearly Hook, Smee and Tick Tock from the Peter Pan film, but Jake also looks a lot like the Jake from ''[[AmericanDragonJakeLong American Dragon: Jake Long]]''. And kinda like a younger version of Captain Jack Sparrow. Jack, Jake... See the resemblance? There had even been rumors going around for a while that Disney was going to make an animated show based about a young Jack Sparrow.

* GenreShift: In its original form, the show could more-or-less be described as ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' [-[[RecycledInSpace WITH PIRATES]]-]. Things such as FakeInteractivity and comic adventures with vague morals to teach were all common fare. The later installments, particularly ''Captain Jake and the Neverland Pirates'', have seen a major shift towards action, with high-stakes specials, serious villains and Jake (Captain Jake) engaging in swordplay using a magic sword.

* KillItWithFire: In "Golden Hook," from ''Captain Jake and the Neverland Pirates'', Captain Hook uses a golden hook that turns everything and everyone he touches to gold. Captain Jake's solution is to claim it using his magic sword, which has its own magic and is therefore immune to the effect, then toss the sucker into a volcano. Upon its destruction, the magic is reversed and everything that was turned to gold changes back, including Smee and Hook's other bumbling lackeys, Sharkey and Bones.

* ThePiratesWhoDontDoAnything: Jake and his crew. They're the page image for the trope, and why not? As the trope description states "They don't pillage. They don't plunder. They don't invade Port Towns, kidnap beautiful maidens, battle the Royal Navy on the high seas, broadcast without a license, or swap files on the intertubes... and they've never been to Boston in the fall." Yep. The image is a promotional image for the show which reads "Today's pirate pledge: A good pirate never takes another person's property!"

As with several other elements of the show, however, this has become heavily changed with ''Captain Jake and the Neverland Pirates'', which generally greatly raises the action-adventure stakes. The specials are also generally much more intense.

* ExpositoryThemeTune: "Just off the shores of Neverland, a hideaway at sea... a pirate band outwits the plans of Captain Hook and Smee..." It's also a TitleThemeTune.

* ExpositoryThemeTune: "Just off the shores of Neverland, a hideaway at sea... a pirate band outwits the plans of Captain Hook and Smee..." It's also a TitleThemeTune. For the fourth season, it becomes ''Captain Jake and the Never Land Pirates''. The rest of the lyrics are mostly unchanged, though they're a bit misleading at this point, given that most episodes really aren't about Jake and the others having to deal with Hook and Smee anymore.

* LighterAndSofter: Than Disney's ''Disney/PeterPan.''

* LighterAndSofter: Than Disney's ''Disney/PeterPan.''''Disney/PeterPan'', at least in the earlier installments. The specials and the latter installments, especially ''Captain Jake and the Neverland Pirates'', strongly ramp up the action-adventure element, including stuff like having Jake engage in swordplay.
