THEME:   none, but four 15-letter entries abutting!
Peter Pan rival   JIF [peanut butter]

Stock problem   STAMPEDE   
Black and blue, say   TWO TONE   
The duck in Disney's "Peter and the Wolf"   SONIA [I'd go with "Raskolnikov's friend in Crime and Punishment," but that's me.  Sonia is a significant literary character.  The duck?]
