“Though busloads of sick and underprivileged children would occasionally visit Neverland, Jackson sometimes hopped on rides alone, chugging through sleepless nights on his steam train, tooting a whistle heard on ranches for miles around.”—"Neverland rides deliver thrills in a new setting," The Los Angeles Times

“This show was dubbed in Chinese by the Shanghai Television in the late 1980s with the title of “Chéngzhǎng de Fánnǎo” (成长的烦恼; Chéngzhǎng means Growing, Fánnǎo means Pains). It was one of the first American sitcom introduced to mainland China and instantly became a smash hit. The show also had a great impact on the Chinese family values and broadened many people’s ideas of parenting. Some parents regard Dr. and Mrs. Seaver as models and try to befriend their kids after watching the show. The show has been rerun numerous times across mainland China up to date. It is becoming popular once again due to the new DVD release in 2006. Growing Pains remains one of the most favorite American TV shows in China, where the major cast members still enjoy huge popularity. Many Chinese use this show as materials for English learning.”—"Growing Pains" Wikipedia page
