Peter Pan is never supposed to grow up, but Illinois State University professor Karen Coats says the character has grown over time from an ambivalent symbol of Victorian immaturity to a celebration of the all-American inner-child. Either way, Captain Hook got a raw deal. He told me himself over the phone. Featuring voice actor Erik Bergmann as a drunk-dialing Captain Hook and actress Lily Dorment reading from the J.M. Barrie book.
