Corey Gregg Burton (born August 3, 1955) is an American voice actor who provided the voice for several Disney animated characters.He received an Annie nomination for his voice work as Captain Hook in Return to Never Land, and Jake and The Never Land Pirates. He provides the voice of Captain Hook, The Tiki Trees, Pranky, the Sea Witch's Magic Mirror and Knuckles the Monkey Pirate.

He also won "best male vocal performance in a television series - children's/educational" for voicing Captain Hook in Jake and the Never Land Pirates on BTVA's annual awards.


  • Corey Burton was initially unsure about being able to play Captain Hook in a program for pre-schoolers. He then realized he simply had to emphasize the comedy aspects of Hook's characterization, while still managing to remain faithful to Hans Conried's interpretation (Hans provided Hook's voice in Disney's Peter Pan ). Burton credits a large part of his achievement to his chemistry with Jeff Bennett, who voices Mr. Smee and first came up with the idea of playing the two characters as if they were a vaudeville comedy duo.
