''Peter Pan No Bouken'' (in English, ''Peter Pan: The Animated Series'') is an {{Anime}} adaptation of ''PeterPan'' produced by Nippon Animation, as a part of the WorldMasterpieceTheater.

While the story starts out similar to the original book, later episodes have new villains alongside Captain Hook--Sinistra, the Queen of Darkness, and her henchmen. The heroes also gain an ally in Princess Luna, [[spoiler:a Princess of Light, who struggles with her heritage as the granddaughter and heiress of Sinistra.]]

It was distributed in the U.S. by SabanEntertainment back in the 90's, but [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes good luck finding it on Youtube]].

!!This anime contains examples of:

* ActionGirl: Tiger Lily
* {{Adorkable}}: John
* AffablyEvil: Captain Hook, along with the rest of his crew.
* AnimatedAdaptation
* [[spoiler: AwesomeMomentOfCrowning: Luna.]]
* {{Badass}}: This version of Hook is quite an impressive fighter, which might explain why he only needs a crew of six pirates. Even his hook is more of a prehensile claw.
* BeardOfEvil: Hook and Robert.
* BerserkButton: One of Peter's biggest pranks gone wrong is when he steals [[EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas the portrait of Hook's mother]].
* BigBad: Captain Hook, later Sinistra.
* TheBrute: Alf and Bill.
* TheChessmaster: Hook.
* DamselOutOfDistress: The Wendy of this adaptation is more HotBlooded than the standard portrayal. She yells at Hook when he has her prisoner, almost manages to go TalkingTheMonsterToDeath on him (only [[DiabolusExMachina stepping on the wrong spot at the worst time possible]] interrupts her TheReasonYouSuckSpeech to him), befriends Princess Luna in spite of her origins, and ultimately [[spoiler: it's thanks to her HeroicSacrifice that Luna turns back to the side of good.]]
* DarkMagicalGirl: Princess Luna. Considering that [[spoiler:she was raised by her grandmother Sinistra, can you blame her?]]
* EyePatchOfPower: Alf.
* EvenBadMenLoveTheirMamas: Hook, as usual.
* GeniusBruiser: Hook.
* TheGunslinger: Robert.
* HeelFaceMole: Cecco, for a short time.
* [[spoiler: HeroicSacrifice: Like in the other continuities, Tinkerbell. With a twist, though: it's via using up all of her fairy LifeEnergy to destroy a DeathTrap that is about to kill Peter, collapsing almost dead in his hands. When Tiger Lily and the Lost Boys step in, Peter hands the almost dead Tinkerbell to Tiger Lily and asks her to save her, before going to rescue Wendy; Lily takes Tinkerbell to the Fairy Realm and gets her cured.]]
* HiddenDepths: Hook's crew of pirates is much smaller in numbers in this version, leaving room for each of them to have more personality and development than most adaptations. One good example is the letter Starkey got from his sister, which [[HeartwarmingMoments Wendy actually reads to him]].
* HooksAndCrooks: Starkey has a hook shaped sword.
* IKnowYouAreInThereSomewhereFight: [[spoiler: Wendy, towards the {{Face Heel Turn}}ed Luna. She almost dies when Luna [[KilledMidSentence stabs her in the middle of it]], but it ultimately works.]]
* KnifeNut: Cecco.
* MagicMirror: [[spoiler: Wendy gets thrown into one during the GrandFinale, and by Hook of all people. Then she finds Princess Luna inside that mirror world...]]
* ManipulativeBastard: Hook.
* MasculineGirlFeminineBoy: John (ShrinkingViolet) and Tiger Lily (ActionGirl).
* MegaTwintails: Instead of Disney!Wendy's brunette RegalRinglets and [[PeterPanAndThePirates another Wendy's]] bob, this Wendy is a blonde with HUGE GirlishPigtails and [[HairDecorations red hairbows]].
* MinionWithAnFInEvil: Smee, as always. The rest of Hook's crew also becomes this when they're drunk.
* NamesTheSame: [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Princess Luna]], huh?
* NamesToKnowInAnime: It actually has a ''very'' good and well-known seiyuu cast: Creator/NorikoHidaka (Peter), NaokoMatsui (Wendy), Creator/ChikaoOhtsuka (Hook), YurikoFuchizaki (Michael), HisakoKyoda (Sinistra), MariaKawamura (Luna ''and'' Tiger Lily), Creator/SumiShimamoto (Tinkerbell).
** It was dubbed in Latin-American Spanish, and with a rather famous cast as well: Carlos Hugo Hurtado ([[RanmaoneHalf Ranma Saotome]], [[TriGun Nicholas Wolfwood]]) as Peter, MariaFernandaMorales ([[Anime/SailorMoon Minako/Sailor Venus]], [[SaintSeiya Athena]], [[IkkiTousen Hakufu]]) as Wendy, JesusBarrero ([[SaintSeiya Seiya]], [[MazingerZ Koji Kabuto]]) as John, Mónica Estrada ([[DrSlump Arale Norimaki]], [[DigimonAdventure Koushiro "Izzy" Izumi]]) as Michael, the late Alvaro Tarcisio ([[{{Macross}} Captain Henry Gloval]] ''and'' [[PeterPanAndThePirates the other Captain Hook]]) as Hook, Cristina Hernández ([[Manga/CardcaptorSakura Sakura Kinomoto]], [[SlamDunk Haruko Akagi]]) as Tinkerbell, PatriciaAcevedo (Anime/SailorMoon, [[DragonBall Chichi]], [[IkkiTousen Ryoumou]]) as Tiger Lily, etc.
* NonIndicativeName: Luna's a princess of light, not darkness.
* {{Not So Harmless Villain}}s: The big advantage Peter has over Hook's crew is that he can fly. Anyone who can't has more than enough of a reason to fear them.
* {{Pajama Clad Hero}}es: Actually averted. The Darlings were GenreSavvy enough to be fully dressed when Peter came for them for the second (third?) time and took them to Neverland.
* PluckyGirl: Both Wendy and Tiger Lily
* QuirkyMiniBossSquad: Hook's crew.
* RomanticTwoGirlFriendship: Wendy and Princess Luna, to a degree.
* ShrinkingViolet: John takes Disney!John's quiet nature UpToEleven.
* TheSneakyGuy: Cecco.
* SuperpoweredEvilSide: [[spoiler: Princess Luna]] has one.
** [[spoiler: SplitPersonalityTakeover: Said evil side fully takes over the girl after Sinistra is killed. It takes Wendy's HeroicSacrifice to make her return to normal.]]
* TeamMom: Wendy.
* {{Tsundere}}: Tiger Lily is a Type A. Specially [[BetaCouple towards John]]. There was a whole episode dedicated to their first date, with John trying to be a gentleman to her -- only to either [[ButtMonkey misfortune to happen]] or to have Lily utterly tsuntsun at him.
** Wendy is very much a Type B. She's the most maternal and sweet girl, like any other of ther incarnations, but this one also gives her a HotBlooded side that makes her downright ''scary'' when she gets mad.
* ''Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater'': The part of the meta-series that was produced and released in 1989.
