"Well, well, if it isn't Peter Pan!"

Captain Hook is a villainous pirate from J.M. Barrie's play, Peter Pan. He appears as a minor antagonist in Shrek 2 and a supporting antagonist in Shrek the Third.


Shrek 2

Hook appears in the Poison Apple, where he plays a piano and sings, Little Drop Of Poison, and People Ain't No Good. He is later seen at the end playing the piano with Kyle during the "Livin' La Vida Loca" number.

Far Far Away Idol

He appears as a contestant singing Hooked On A Feeling until Tinkerbell whispers in Simon Cowell's ear, he agrees with her and a hook pulls Hook the stage off for Puss to have his turn.

Shrek the Third

Hook appears as a villain working for Prince Charming. He appears to be one of Charming's main men, since he is the leader of the pirates and a dangerous man. He attacks Shrek and company at Merlin's home. During the end of the movie, he gives up being a villain and goes to live the life he always wanted (having been inspired by Artie's speech, like all the other villains).

Shrek Forever After

While he doesn't appear in the film itself, he has a voice cameo in the film's soundtrack, where he's a guest speaker on "The Rumpelstiltskin Show.”Hook talks about how he's been "Working out in the gaarrrden" and proceeds to talk about his life story as of late until he runs out of time.

Video Game Appearances

He also appeared in the video game of the third film, where he was in a level called "Forest Ambush," where he once again played the grand piano on a gigantic log, while his pirates and some evil trees attempt to destroy Shrek and Artie . Captain Hook was singing his own song called "I'm Evil". At the end of the level, Captain Hook got up and claimed that his plan (which was merely sending wave after wave of pirates, evil trees and a few cannons) "didn't work out as he planned". He then told Shrek that Fiona was in the royal prison, guarded by witches and knights, and even worse, the Cyclops. Artie then said (in a sarcastic manner) that "it was a good thing that he didn't say 'Pirates'", because he was "scared that he was going to say that, given how scary they were". Captain Hook told Artie that he's rubbing it in again, which he was. Shrek and Artie then left to go rescue Fiona.

Hook also appeared in the video game Shrek Super Slam as an unlockable character. His Super Slam is that he summons cannonballs to rain down around him hitting any opponent nearby.

Before the release of Shrek 2, he was a mini-boss in the Gameboy Advance title Shrek: Reekin' Havoc. Here he had an extremely different design, sporting long blonde hair and a fancier pirate outfit.

Hook has short, black Farquaad-like hair and a moustache. Hook wears a purple and yellow pirate suit with long black pants and dark brown boots; and of course, he has a hook for his right hand. However, in Shrek 2, his hook was silver and thin, but in Shrek the Third, its solid, rusty gold that's much thicker. He also had a blue feather on his hat in the second film, which was not seen in the next installment.

He appears to have aged quite a bit in Shrek the Third, and his hair has gotten darker. Often going unnoticed, he appears to have gotten taller. In Shrek 2 he is noticeably shorter than Prince Charming, but in Shrek the Third they are a similar height. Hook has sideburns in Shrek 2 which are either absent or obscured in Shrek the Third. He also has a gold tooth in Shrek the Third which is unseen in Shrek 2.


  • Despite the fact that Ian McShane is credited as Hook in the Shrek 4 soundtrack, it is not his voice and since Walt Dohrn is credited as the only voice, that could imply he was doing both voices.
