The Pirate Mummy is a recurring character from the Disney Junior series Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He's a thousand-year-old pirate mummy who inhabits the Pirate Mummy's Tomb in the Never Land Desert . He is voiced by Jack McBrayer.
Not much is known about the Pirate Mummy life before or how he died other than he is a captain, what is known he is a cowardly character due to residing within his tomb deep with the in the Never Land Desert he rarely has any visitor and is a bundle of nerves when he meets people or hears loud noises. But later through the course of the series, the Pirate Mummy has started to come out of his shell thanks to Jake and his crew.
Mostly due to lack of interactions with others and flimsiness, the Pirate Mummy is an incredibly timid, fragile, and insecure character. He apparently suffers from anxiety and is often seen cowering in fear during his debut. Though Jake and his crew don't seem to mind the Pirate Mummy's constant fears and happily brings him along and/or protects him through every adventure, the Pirate Mummy is noticeably embarrassed and ashamed of his dominate cowardliness, and though he's far from the bravest inhabitant of Never Land, he has successfully come through for his friends on numerous occasions. He's also rather creative and has a massively passionate side to him, valuing his friendships all else.
