Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day! In its honor let’s celebrate two of my favorite Neverland pirates – Captain Hook and Mr. Smee. It appears that this dastardly duo found themselves in a bit of a bind when they ran into Peter Pan and the crocodile in Magic Kingdom Park back in 1981. Arrrrrrgh, mateys!

  • I WISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSHHHHHHHHHHHH they would have the Tic-Toc Croc out for a Long Lost Friends Week. Would probably mak my LIFE to see him 🙂

  • Wow, there was actually a Crocodile character costume?

    • Yes! Photographic evidence above.
