- David: Michael wants to know what's going on. Marco, what's going on? Marko: I don't know. What's going on, Paul? Paul: Wait a minute. Who wants to know? Dwayne: Michael wants to know.
David: How are those maggots? Michael Emerson: Huh? David: Maggots, Michael. You're eating maggots. How do they taste?

Grandpa: Second shelf is mine. That's where I keep my rootbeers and my double-thick Oreo cookies. Nobody touches the second shelf but me.
David: It is too late, my blood is in your veins. Michael Emerson: So is mine!
- The title of the film is a reference to the companions of Peter Pan, who remained forever young.
The original screenplay written by Janice Fischer and James Jeremias was originally about a bunch of "Goonie-type 5th-6th grade kid vampires", with the Frog Brothers being "chubby 8 year old cub scouts", and Star being a boy instead of a love interest. Joel Schumacher hated that idea and told the producers he would only sign on if he could change them to teenagers, as he thought it would be more much sexier and interesting.
Both Corey Feldman, who plays Edgar Frog, and Barnard Hughes, who plays Grandpa, share the same birthday, July 16th.
This movie invented the phrase "vamp out", which has passed into common usage on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" (1997).
Keenan Wynn and John Carradine (a veteran of vampire films) were both original choices for Grandpa. Wynn died right before filming and Carradine was too ill.
