During the course of the first film with the assistance of Mr. Smee, Captain Hook captures the Indian princess Tiger Lily and takes her to Skull Rock. Captain Hook places the bounded Tiger Lily on a rock sticking out of the sea. He offers to set her free if she reveals the home of Peter Pan. He points out the rising tide. However, Tiger Lily knows better than to take the Captain word and refuses to talk. Losing his patience, Hook screams that Tiger Lily has one more chance.
Unknown to any of them, Peter Pan and Wendy Darling have spotted the trio. Peter Pan is able to spook Hook and Smee by mimicking acting as sea spirit. When Hook leaves to find the source of the voice, Peter Pan begins imitating Hook's voice, Pan orders Smee to return Tiger Lily to her people. Smee complies, but is then yelled at by the real Captain Hook, who orders Smee to put Tiger Lily back where he had her. Pan and Hook go back and forth, until Peter Pan is discovered by Hook. After a short battle, Hook is chased off by Tick-Tock the Crocodile. By this time, Tiger Lily has almost sunk beneath the rising tide. Peter Pan doesn't notice this until it is pointed out by Wendy. Peter Pan rescues Tiger Lily, and they, along with Wendy, return to the Indian Camp.
