- “Fast Claw? I know that tricky feathered fowl!”
Fast Claw is a recurring character from the Disney Junior animated series, Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is Beatrice Le Beak's pet falcon and partner in crime. His vocal effects are provided by Dee Bradley Baker.
Fast Claw is Beatrice Le Beak pet falcon and sidekick. He appears to be similar to his master: sneaky, cunning and vicious. He latches onto his prey or whatever he needs to carry with his steely talons (as he did with Captain Hook's hat in his debut). Fast Claw is completely and genuinely loyal to Beatrice and, unlike other villain henchmen in the series, he is competent and easily succeeds in his task that his master gives him.
