Everlasting Gobstoppers! This is our first fan-requested episode! Thanks to everyone for your support! Join us on Facebook to add your requests!
We talk about the inspiration for Willy Wonka and how author Roald Dahl developed this amazing character and his world! You can find the book and its sequel HERE.
In our fun-fact section, we learn more about how the movie was made, how the author felt about the movie, and why there was never a sequel.
Then, we talk about our memories of the film. Steve watched it on Easter, and Megan... made a bunch of little kids cry. Throughout our discussion, we mention comedian John Mulaney's bit on the movie, including his thoughts on "laundry soup," which you can find below. (Please note that there is some cursing in that particular clip.)
In addition to our recap and review, we try the nostalgic candy inspired by the film: Everlasting Gobstoppers, which you can buy HERE or find in your local grocery or convenience store.
Watch the original HERE and the remake HERE and enjoy the trailers below!
Does the movie hold up, or did we just ruin our childhoods? Listen to find out!
Each week, we'll post the links to the shows and films we watched, so you can "play along at home."
