Ward Kimball’s Captain Hooks
Captain Hook was a character animated by Frank Thomas and also Woolie Reitherman, so it is very interesting to see why Ward was doodling around on his own twists on this Peter Pan character, while he was responsible for the Indian Chief and the lost boys.
What’s interesting in these concepts is that they were caricatures of some of his fellow animators posing as Captain Hook (including himself)!
First there is Frank Thomas, followed by Ward, then Milt Kahl as a cranky Hook, Marc Davis as a very stylish Hook, Clarke Mallery as an elegant Hook and Ollie Johnston as a very comical Hook.
These are pure gold.
