I really loved this series. It's not even in reruns where I am anymore. I'm actually not a big fan of the animation quality like some of the others but I liked how smart this show was. I've always loved the Peter Pan story and this show was the one that best portrayed it I think, better than Disney's, Spielberg's, even better than the Broadway version. Maybe because it had the opportunity to expand where those could only stay or lift off (as is the case with Spielberg's "Hook") from the original story. Maybe I'm blinded by my nostalgia for this series but I remember this animated cartoon as something intelligent. That it dealt with the real purpose of Neverland, of loss, of imagination, etc. I haven't seen this in years and maybe I won't be so devoted when if I see it again. This was a very smart adaption of Peter Pan and it remains one of the best I've ever seen or known. It's true to the book, the characters, the storylines and it brings enough childhood fun to make it true to Barrie's original. Now, I wish it would be on for me.
