Otaa is a character from the Disney Junior animated series, in Jake and the Never Land Pirates. He is an anthropomorphic, mummified sphinx cat that serves the legendary Pirate Pharaoh. He is voiced by Jeff Bennett.



Otaa is very loyal to the Pirate Pharaoh due to there long history together. He thinks about nothing but pleasing his master, believing he can do no wrong. He can be a bit of a wise guy, making smart remarks towards others. Even as the Pirate Pharaoh tries to restore his kingdom to its former glory, Otaa tries to give advice and guidance to the Pharaoh, not just because it is his job, but also because he is kind and fond of the master. Otaa, as seen in his debut, actually displays cat-like manners, as when he was brought back to life he quickly asks the Pharaoh for some fish. Another example of his feline mannerisms is in the episode "Mummy First Mate", when Otaa is shown that he has a fondness of chasing Skully, but Skully is shown to be too swift and clever for Otaa. During their teamwork besting Captain Hook, Skully comments about how cats are not so bad, only for Otaa to reply there is more to birds then just being for breakfast.


Not much is known about Otaa's life before or how he died, other then he is a devoted servant to the Pirate Pharaoh back when the Pharaoh Valley was still a lush paradise within the Never Land Desert. He, along with his Pharaoh, were later sealed away by the wicked Queen Patracleo when she turned Pharaoh's Valley into a baron wasteland, locking the waters of the Never Nileaway in a mountain.

Powers and Abilities[]

Unlike most animals, Otaa is perfectly capable of human speech. Although it remains unknown whether he was taught this or a magic spell was cast upon him.
