YMMV / Peter Pan & the Pirates

Go To

  • Audience-Alienating Premise: A serious take on Peter Pan didn't exactly get older kids running to the set, and the younger kids got scared away (possibly a reason why season two episodes toned the darkness down considerably).
  • Awesome Music: The show had rather excellent and exciting music. Take the main theme for starters.
  • Cult Classic: Those who saw it back in the day loved it, and it is fondly remembered online.

  • Heartwarming Moments: In "Billy Jukes, Lost Boy", Billy Jukes going through hell to help his friend Robert Mullins. Even lost boy Slightly has sympathy for him after learning about their backstory. In the end, each asks the other to join him.
    Billy Jukes: Pirates are pirates.
    Slightly: And Lost Boys are Lost Boys.
    Billy Jukes: I have to join my shipmates.
    Slightly: And I have to stick with my friends.

  • Cry for the Devil:
  • Ensemble Dark Horse:

    • Billy Jukes, mainly for being the Token Good Teammate of Hook's crew.
    • Captain Hook too, for having a very unique design, an interesting backstory, some enjoyable hammy moments, a few sympathetic qualities, and of course the fact that he's voiced by Tim Curry.
  • Foe Yay:
    • Slightly the Lost Boy and the pirate Billy Jukes.
    • Inevitably, there is definitely some between Peter and Captain Hook.
    • There was also at least one episode that hinted at this between Captain Hook and Wendy.
  • Fridge Brilliance: The mismatched Twins seem like an interesting, humorous choice until you read/recall that canon states: "Peter never quite knew what twins were, and his band were not allowed to know anything he did not know." Ohhhhh.
  • Just Here for Godzilla: For some people, the only reason that they watch this show is because of the episodes that are animated by TMS, as well as that they (TMS) are one of the main reasons why people still remember this show, along with Tim Curry.
  • Moment of Awesome:
  • Tear Jerker:
    • The final episodes, "The Ages of Pan", especially Peter finally remembering everything and turning the island back to normal.
    • The lead-up to it fits as well, with somber music playing as Hook forces an elderly Peter to walk the plank.
  • Uncanny Valley: The crocodile's square, human-like teeth.
  • Viewer Gender Confusion: The crocodile is explicitly stated to be female. It's impossible to tell by looking at her, though.
