Tonight, I realized that the iconic "I Don't Wanna Grow Up" Toys R' Us jingle came from the Peter Pan musical.
Fun Facts from this commercial:
1. The first little girl you see is Jenny Lewis
(singer-songwriter and childhood star of THE WIZARD
) -- who I happen to share a precise birthday with (same date, same year).
2. The kid at 10 seconds is Scott Nemes
, who was a prolific child actor in the 80s with roles in TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE and D.C. CAB. Now, he's the production head of Cinemax, which produces the television show THE KNICK, which I'm currently working on.
