3.0 out of 5 stars Engrossing series December 31, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
Even though this series little resembled Disney's animated movie with regard to Peter's physical apperance (most kids are introduced to Peter Pan in 'modern' American culture through Walt Disney)it was probally closer to J.M. Barrie's original depiction than the earlier Disney title.

Debuting when the networks still did afternoon cartoon shows for kids, this series had just the right mix of adventure and drama to keep people of all ages interested. Consequently, they were able to perform story arcs without becoming too far-flung or 'soapy', a tragedy which obviously befalls many a live action series.

Then in junior high, I was technically aging out of many cartoons--but still found this series a nice piece of escapism from my then mundane routines.

Years later (again, when the afternoon network schedule dropped most cartoons) I thought I had imagined this series. Although it is not one of my overwhelming favirotes, I would encourage people wanting something above the standard kids fare (on both broadcast and cable) to pick up this series. The attention to animation and rich color palette will not disappoint the senses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Peter Pan as it's meant to be! December 5, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates is without a doubt the best version of J. M. Barrie's classic story. If you are a fan of Disney's version of Peter Pan, definately try this, and see Neverland as it's supposed to be.
Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates shows a depth that is severely lacking in modern cartoons. Contrary to Disney's version, the characters have personality, and this version shows an energy that is lacking in Disney's version.
James Hook is absoulutley amazing. I've often had to resort to a dictionary after watching an episode, because Hook's vocabulary in the show is very extensive. He quotes Shakespeare alot, and his education is very noticable. Hook is not a coward, prissy character as in Disney's version, and Tim Curry's preformance is absolutley perfect.
Now, this episode itself: Peter Pan is pitted against the supernatural as The Rake, Hook's Brother's ghost ship, returns to Neverland after his treasure is found in a cave. Peter and Hook must fight to save themselves and Neverland from the evil power of the Ghost of Hook's murdered brother.
The animation is great, the music is beautiful, and the show leaves you with a feeling of adventure!
If this video comes back into stock, I highly advise this for your children, and even for adults!

4.0 out of 5 stars The best version of Peter Pan out there! February 8, 2013
Format:VHS Tape
Fox's Peter Pan and the Pirates was definitely the best version of the Peter Pan story that I've ever seen. The characters were well-developed, the story-lines were complex, and the animation was absolutely amazing. The writers for the show were so brilliant that they went above and beyond J.M. Barrie's book, and created a very in-depth version of Neverland. The stories they wrote were poignant, funny, sometimes sad, and sometimes bittersweet. So, I can definitely recommend this version to anyone who was a fan of this 80s show, or even someone who has never seen it--this is a show that parents can definitely buy for their children. The only down side to all of this is...I wish that they had the entire series on DVD available on Amazon.com. That would be icing on the cake. I'm wondering why they never released the whole series on DVD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flyin' High! July 30, 2002
A Kid's Review
Format:VHS Tape
I haven't seen this show in a long time. But I still remember it. It was one of my favorite shows, until it retired and never went on anymore. Captain Hook is kinda annoying, but other than that, this show is worth the buy!
