Mini Tribute: Child Star Bobby Driscoll

Born March 3, 1937, Child Actor Bobby Driscoll!

In his 22-year career (1943-1965), Bobby Driscoll appeared in over 50 films and television shows, but is probably best known for his Disney roles as Johnny in Song of the South (1946), Jim Hawkins in Treasure Island (1950) — and as the voice (and animation model) for Disney’s Peter Pan (1953).

“Now, think of the happiest things. It’s the same as having wings.”

    I just so sad no one claimed him, and he was buried in the Potter’s field on Hart Island. I wonder what his career would have held for him if he chose a different path..
