Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is a parrot and the look-out for Jake, Izzy and Cubby. Voiced by David Arquette, this parrot watches out for Captain Hook who targets the kids as his various evil plots.
The character of Skully is a sort of homage to the traditional pirate parrots that sit aside the pirate captain on their shoulder. Arquette who enjoys playing his part, once noting in an interview: "It's great to sort of perform with just using your voice. I sweat, actually, when I start doing the thing, because I really get into it. You really have to convey all of the excitement into your voice. It takes a lot, but it's really rewarding, especially when you see the little fans that love it." Arquette has also said that he enjoys performing Skully with material outside of the actual show itself, such as at a debut of the Jake and the Never Land toy line at the annual International Toy Fair in New York City.
Skully is wise and very responsible with the kids. He is much appreciated and worries for their safety when doing dangerous task. Skully is friends with Jake and his crew and like them seems to be annoyed rather quickly by Captain Hook. Unlike Jake however, Skully feels no remorse for Hook when the villainous pirate is in peril. Skully sometimes acts like a small child being very playful and speaking in third person occasionally. Skully can also be very wise-cracking, often giving a joking remark on a certain situation, usually at Hook's suspense.
