Peter Pan

Question: What was Mr Darling's career?

Answer: In the original stage play by J.M. Barrie, he was a bank clerk. I don't think what he did for work was brought up in the 1953 film.

Question: Why do the other pirates bully Smee? What do they have against him?

John Ohman

Chosen answer: He's too much of a bumbler and too cheery (for example when he tells the crew "good morning" and they wanted to know why it's so good.) They probably also see him as a fool and brown-noser since he's always trying to make Hook happy. To the crew he's just Hook's assistant and not a real pirate at heart.

Continuity mistake: In the duel at Skull Rock, after Peter leads Captain Hook onto thin air, Hook drops his sword and scrambles to grab hold of the cliff again. But when we see Hook's reaction to the approaching crocodile, you can see his sword back in its sheath. (00:51:50)
