Background

History

Tick-Tock was born a couple of years before the events of "Jake and the Never Land Pirates" and "Peter Pan", hatching on the shores of Never Land. He was adopted by one of Tinker Bell's pixie companions whom he imprinted on believing she was his mother. Not long after being born, the infant croc found himself aboard the ship of a young pirate captain named James, who would one day become the feared Captain Hook. During his escapade aboard James' ship, the crocodile accidentally swallowed the alarm clock of one of the crew members, thus gaining his iconic nickname. The ship adventure would also lead to Tick-Tock's first encounter with Hook, believing the captain was a codfish, prompting him to snap and chase after him in the Never Sea.

Years later, Tick-Tock would eventually grow to a monstrous size, and his never-ending pursuit to have another taste of James continued. One day, however, James' hand was cut off in battle by Peter Pan, and fed to Tick-Tock as a snack, thus fueling the croc's hunger even further. Fortunately for James, now known as Captain Hook after the loss of his hand, the ticking alarm clock in Tick-Tock's stomach gives a warning whenever the croc is near.Tick-Tock frequently visits the Jolly Roger, popping out of the Never Sea and waiting for Hook to make a mistake and fall into the sea.However, Hook usually cowers in fear, and Tick-Tock has to be shooed off by Mr. Smee.

Later, after Hook and Smee kidnap Tiger Lily and take her to Skull Rock, Tick-Tock is shown following them. The Crocodile watches as Peter Pan and Hook fight, and when Hook is left dangling from a cliff, Tick-Tock sees his opportunity and snaps at him, tearing his coat. He jumps up again and pulls Hook into his mouth, but Hook manages to escape with help from Smee. Tick-Tock chases him back to the Jolly Roger, and circles it for the rest of the night.

During the final phase of the first film Pan and Hook battle once more on the ship's mast, Tick-Tock waits below hoping that Hook would fall off into the sea. After losing his duel with Pan once more Hook tries one last attempt for revenge by striking Peter while his back was turned, Peter moved out of the way, causing the pirate to loses his footing as he falls toward the sea and the waiting jaws of the crocodile. Hook manages to escape the croc's jaws once more but was chased out of Never Land by the determined crocodile, with Mr. Smee and the crew following behind.

Sometime after the events of the original film, Hook and his crew manage to evade both the crocodile and reclaim control of the Jolly Roger by this time Peter Pan decides to leave Never Land for outside adventure. With Pan exploring the lands beyond the Never Sea and the treat of Tick-Tock presumed at the time gone Hook stayed behind to dominate Never Land during Peter's absence. However, Tick-Tock would eventually return to Never Land after Peter's departure and is once again after Hook.
