History

The Pirate Fairy

Tick Tock is first discovered by the fairies as an egg, hatching in front of Rosetta. With her being the first person he sees, he hugs her and believes her to be his mother. He follows her around and helps her when she is in danger, saving the fairies from a trap and joining in their battle against the Neverland Pirates. During the battle, he accidentally swallows the cook's alarm clock, leading to his constant ticking sound and new nickname. However, Tick Tock stays behind after the ship is stolen by Zarina, and chases James Hook, planning to try and eat him.

Peter Pan

Years later, Tick Tock still chased Hook with plans to eat him. Then one day, Peter Pan cut off Hook's hand and threw it to him. Tick Tock ate it and enjoyed it so much that he abandoned his search for normal prey in order to chase Hook until he got the rest of him.

Tick Tock frequently visits the ship, popping out of the water and waiting for Hook to make a mistake and fall off. Hook, however, usually cowers in fear, and Tick Tock has to be shooed off by Mr. Smee.

Later, after Hook and Smee kidnap Tiger Lily and take her to Skull Rock, Tick Tock is shown following them, briefly smiling to the audience, then continuing on. The Crocodile watches as Peter Pan and Hook fight, and when Hook is left dangling from a cliff, Tick Tock sees his opportunity and snaps at him, tearing his coat. He jumps up again and pulls Hook into his mouth, but Hook manages to escape with help from Smee. Tick Tock chases him back to the ship, and circles it for the rest of the night.

During the climax, Tick Tock waits in the waters around the ship waiting for someone to fall off, especially Hook. Hook almost stumbles off the plank, but recovers, leaving Tick Tock disappointed. He watches Peter and Hook sword fight, waiting for one of them to fall. When Hook finally falls, Tick Tock chases him around the water, briefly eating him before Hook escapes again, and is left chasing him far away.

Return to Neverland

In the sequel, Hook says that he rid himself of the crocodile. It is not fully known if this means he finally lost him or somehow killed him. The Crocodile's silhouette is seen in the clouds of Neverland, and Hook is left to deal with a new threat: the Octopus.

Jake and the Neverland Pirates

J54

Tick Tock as seen in Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

Tick Tock appears as a major recurring character in the Disney Junior show Jake and the Neverland Pirates, usually serving as an obstacle or foe for Captain Hook. In the show, it is revealed that he makes his home in a secluded area of Neverland called Crocodile Creek, where he spends his time scheming on how to get Hook or sleeping.

In most episodes he appears in, he is usually the main obstacle when it comes to traversing Crocodile Creek, often going after Captain Hook should his pirates ever come through. When he is sleeping, the characters make it a point not to wake him, as he will be angry if awakened. It is also shown that Tick Tock seems to have somewhat of a personal relationship with Hook, as he enjoys the trill of the chase and is confused and even uninterested if Hook does not struggle or try to escape.

Other Appearances

Goliath II

Tick Tock appears as a major antagonist of the animated short Goliath II. In it, the titular character (a runt baby elephant) is always getting into trouble, causing him to have to be saved by his mother. He is mostly perused by the evil Raja the Tiger, but also by Tick Tock. When Raja almost has Goliath II, his mother comes to the rescue and throws Raja to Tick Tock, who devours him.

Later, the elephant herd comes across a wicked mouse who scares them all. However, Goliath II is not afraid, and the two battle. Goliath II overpowers the mouse and dangles him over Tick Tock's waiting mouth, but the mouse surrenders and Goliath II lets him go, earning the respect of his herd.

In Birth By Sleep, Tick Tock will attack the protagonists Ventus, Terra, and Aqua if they get too close to the water. In Terra and Aqua's stories, Tick Tock is used to chase Hook away from Skull Rock. In Ventus' story, Tick Tock plays a more major role during the Captain Hook boss fight, where Ventus can use magic or powerful attacks to knock Hook into the water, causing him to be snapped at by Tick Tock. However, if Ventus gets too close, Tick Tock will leap out of the water and snap at him, causing large amounts of damage. After Hook is defeated, Tick Tock chases him back to his ship.

Kingdom Hearts

In Kingdom Hearts and its remixes, remasters, and manga adaptation, Tick Tock lurks around the ship. He will attack Sora if he gets too close, but can be used during the Captain Hook boss fight; if Hook is knocked into the water by magic or a powerful enough aerial attack, Tick Tock will snap at him and cause him to scurry back onto the ship, leaving him temporarily vulnerable.

Tick Tock in Fantasmic!.

Tick Tock appears in shows such as Fantasmic!, Festival of Fantasy Parade, Halloween Screams!, Dream Along With Mickey, One Man's Dream II: The Magic Lives On!, and was featured in "Mickey's Boo-to-You Halloween Parade" at Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party until 2012. His most prominent roles were in the show Back to Neverland, where he tried to eat the late Robin Williams, and in Disney Dreams!, where Captain Hook attempts to feed Peter Pan's Shadow to him, only for the shadow to escape and encounter Ursula the Sea Witch.

Personality

Tick Tock is a very mischievous and crafty crocodile who will stop at nothing to eat Captain Hook and anyone else in his way. His solution to every problem is to simply try and eat it, regardless of its effect or what/who the problem is. However, as shown by Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Tick Tock does not just chase Hook to try and eat him, but also as a a source of thrill and entertainment, considering what he and Hook have to be a tight rivalry. He will even go as far as to abandon the chase if Hook is unwilling to contribute.

Trivia

  • Tick Tock has made more cameo appearances than any other Disney character, save potentially mickey Mouse (in the form of Hidden Mickeys).
  • Tick Tock's theme is "Never Smile at a Crocodile", which plays during most of his screen time in the original Peter Pan film.
  • Realistically, a crocodile swallowing an alarm clock or something of that nature would cause immense pain and even prevent them from eating more.
