* DevelopmentHell: This was intended to be Disney's second theatrical film, but Walt didn't get the rights to it until 1939, when J.M. Barrie bequeathed the ones to his play to him. Then, he began developing the story and character designs, and intended it to be his fourth film. However, the onset of UsefulNotes/WorldWarII put the brakes on this -- along with several other films -- and it became Disney's fourteenth entry in 1953. This also resulted in the movie appearing as an EarlyBirdCameo along with ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' as a storybook on the shelf at the very beginning of ''Disney/{{Pinocchio}}'', as well as a brief appearance of a Captain Hook sculpture in ''Disney/TheReluctantDragon''.

Added DiffLines:

* FollowTheLeader: The success of the 1950s televisings motivated the networks to air several other fantasy musicals. Among others, ''Film/{{Cinderella}}'' became the highest-rated TV program of its time, and ''Film/TheWizardOfOz'' (which actually made its big-screen debut 16 years before ''Peter Pan'''s first airing) became a yearly tradition across the country.

* MilestoneCelebration: ''[[WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyDiamondEditions Diamond Edition]]'' BluRay Discs and high definition digital copies came out exactly 60 years after the theatrical premiere. Disney drew a surprisingly small amount of attention to this fact in the advertising, not even writing "60th Anniversary Edition" on the BluRay cover.

* OldShame: NBC's 2014 adaptation seems to have become this for the network. Its ratings seemed drastically lower than those of their telecast of ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic'' the previous year, and it also became SnarkBait for the Internet community. Not even NBC could resist taking potshots at ''Peter Pan'' - ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' released [[http://www.nbc.com/saturday-night-live/video/peter-pan-live/2832820 a parody]] a mere two nights after its premiere, which showed less mercy to the cast, production design, and choreography than the previous year's ''[=TSoM=]'' parody did for its subject. This reception prompted producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to call adapting ''Peter Pan'' "[[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/live-feed/wiz-producers-how-oscars-turned-845893 a mistake]]", figuring they realized too late that it seemed too outdated and/or AdaptationOverdosed. In December 2015, after NBC's more contemporary special of ''Theatre/TheWiz'' earned both higher ratings and more positive reviews than ''Peter Pan'', the network reran both ''The Wiz'' and ''The Sound of Music'' on two separate nights, but denied ''Peter Pan'' another airing. Chairman Bob Greenblatt admitted during his [[http://deadline.com/2016/01/hairspray-live-musical-nbc-1201682009/ announcement]] of a ''Theatre/{{Hairspray}}'' telecast that maybe ''Peter Pan'' ran too long compared to its predecessor and successor, but added, “I don’t mean that disparagingly”.

* Tinker Bell is a major mascot for Disney, being in the ''Series/WaltDisneyPresents'' intros and the ''WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyMasterpieceCollection'' logo and the Disney DVD logo; ironically, the ''Masterpiece Collection'' animation was rotoscoped from a ''Walt Disney Presents'' opening (from when it bore the title, ''Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color'').
