Scariest Cartoon Characters #20: Captain Hook
Starting off the list at #20 of the all time scariest cartoon characters is Captain Hook, of Peter Pan fame. Disney is famous for featuring some of cartoon history’s greatest, scariest villains. Some of the greatest ones are mentioned here in this ToonBarn list, but you’ll get to those soon enough. For now, special mention must be made to the villain that all of Neverland trouble. Despite the best intentions from Peter Pan and the Lost Boys, they simply can’t stop this guy, the legendary pirate, Captain Hook. You could say he doesn’t get the “point”. …but don’t say it around him!!!
Captain Hook is a ruthless pirate, set on controlling all of Neverland, and taking down Peter Pan once and for all. Sure, he’s got his own things to worry about besides the Lost Boys — especially crocodiles. He also hates being referred to as a “codfish”, which just makes him crazy! He’ll throw tantrums, scream and run, hide under his hat, or bellow for Smee, his second-hand… uh, no pun intended! It is only because he is so pathetic at being a bad guy that fell to the bottom of the list. But make no mistake about it, this is one scary pirate willing to work his way back to the top, by … hook, or by crook.
