Trivia:
The production was never broadcast annually. It was first telecast live on March 7, 1955 as "Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan (#1.7)" (1955) and re-staged live (by popular demand) on January 3, 1956 as "Producers' Showcase: Peter Pan (#2.5)" (1956). It was not seen again until this version was videotaped in color and telecast in 1960. Rather than re-broadcast it annually, as CBS began doing with The Wizard of Oz (1939), NBC repeated the videotaped version in 1963, 1966, and 1973. A long hiatus followed, during which this 1960 production was presumed lost. There was a new production starring Mia Farrow with a new score, Peter Pan (1976) (TV). Finally, in 1988, the original 1960 videotape of the Mary Martin version was re-discovered intact, restored and remastered, and telecast in March of 1989 - the production's first TV showing in 16 years.See more »
Goofs:
Incorrectly regarded as goofs: Live theatre productions have different rules than cinema, regarding suspension of disbelief. Most examples of crew or equipment visible, and related imperfect illusions, are not goofs in this genre.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
Narrator:Some say that as we grow up, we become different people at different ages, but I don't believe this. I think we remain the same throughout, merely passing in these years from one room, to another, but always in the same house. If we unlock the rooms of the far past, we can look in and see ourselves beginning to become you and me.
Wendy, John:[dressed up like their parents and dancing] One-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three, one-two-three.

Cheeseboy obviously has no clue...., 1 October 2004
Author: suzyqfd from Florida, USA

what the medium for this production was. It was one of the first Broadway stage productions that had been duplicated exactly for television. The idea was ahead of it's time, and also has preserved Mary Martin's and the rest of the cast's memorable performances which otherwise would have been lost forever. People today are too much into "special effects" instead of good down home theater. All of the performers perform admirably. My son cannot get enough of this video and I'm happy to say that I was able to obtain it when it was reissued a few years back. I wish we had more of this type of entertainment of the "classics". If anyone knows of any, let me know if at all possible.
