DADDY DAY CARE
About The Production
Daddy Day Care
was produced entirely in Los Angeles. The filmmakers replicated a large Pasadena
home, including the front and backyard gardens, on a soundstage in Century City.
The scenes at the Chapman Academy were filmed at a mansion in central L.A.
The most elaborate set
was constructed in Verdugo Park where the â€˜fund-raising' sequence was
filmed. The production rented a string of riding ponies, allowing the kids to
ride around in circles all day if they wanted -- which they did. A petting zoo
was set up with llamas, goats and lambs.
One of the sequence's
highlights is a performance by the hard rock group Cheap Trick, with Garlin as a
featured artist. "I had the time of my life," enthuses Garlin.
"And the best part was that they were playing so loud, it didn't matter
that my singing voice sounded like a man gargling tabasco sauce."
Garlin is obviously
exaggerating since, shortly thereafter, Cheap Trick later invited him to perform
with them in front of a real paying audience during a play date at the House of
Blues in Orange County.
