In a play “Peter and Wendy” written by Sir James M. Barrie, Tinker Bell was a light beamed onto the stage to represent a flying sprite. It was not until the animated movie in 1953 from Disney Studios entitled “Peter Pan” that Tinker Bell was drawn as a pixie, by Marc Davis. There was controversy over the winged pixie, that was well endowed, as being to sexually suggestive. However the animated figure was not modified.
Margaret Kerry was the actress that performed the live action moves for the animated drawing to be done for the movie. She wore a bathing suite on a closed sound stage where photographs were taken of the pantomimes she performed acting as the pixie. Then the animators went to work to draw the theatrics.
Tinker Bell is described as a common fairy who mends pots and kettles, and Her voice, in the beginning, was like a tiny bell. These are the characteristics that contributed to her name. In later movies, such as Hook, which stared Robin Williams, as Pan, and Julia Roberts, as Tinker bell. Tinker Bell was given a voice.
Tinker Bell can be spiteful and mischievous if she does not get what she wants, She also tends to pout. Overall Tinker Bell is good-hearted and loyal to her friends.
