I love finding old pictures of characters that arent so common in the parks anymore… I love finding unusual character pics even more. So, when I found the negative for this picture of me and Mr. Smee with Peter Pan in the background, I knew it was perfect for todays Flashback Friday.

Maybe if I was able to spend more time in the Parks I would see obscure characters like Mr. Smee more often, but as it is, I dont ever remember seeing Mr. Smee again, outside of parades and shows. Perhaps, however, the more interesting facet of this picture is Peter Pan and his seeming non-compliance with the strict Disney dress code… Look closely and see if you can find what Im talking about… See it there on Peter Pans wrist? Yep, thats it, a bright green, wrist watch. Now, Ive seen Peter several time since this, but never with a watch. Not to mention the fact that I certainly dont remember Peter sporting the latest Rolex model in the classic cartoon. Haha, now I clearly wasnt very traumatized by the fact that Peter was using modern technologies while walking through the parks that day because I certainly didnt remember the incident. But when I discovered on the photo the other day, it certainly did make me chuckle! :D

Now, if anyone knows something different about Peter Pan costumes from the early 1990s I would love to know! Leave a comment below!
