Episode 98: Henry Cavill’s Mustache

Happy Wednesday, everyone!

In minute 98, Charlie, Willy Wonka and Grandpa Joe break through the glass ceiling. Not that glass ceiling, unfortunately. As it breaks through the ceiling, the Wonkavator takes flight, and we get to see a high angle of the town of Nördlingen in Bavaria, Germany, which is standing in for the town that Charlie and Grandpa Joe live in. We also get a composite shot of the Wonkavator flying over the town, which is showing its age. Jason makes an off hand remark which leads to an extensive digression about hamsters, Scrabble and message boards. It doesn’t have anything to do with the movie…just go with it.

Episode 87: Gotta Grind Those Rails

Happy Friday!

In minute 87, bubbles, bubbles, everywhere…but not the same kind we previously saw. The WonkaMobile goes through the Hsawaknow, and comes out clean and dry through the magic of dry cleaning. Grandpa Joe lets us know about his hygiene habits, and Mike Teevee thinks that the ride was pretty pointless. We are also introduced to a new room with a camera in it. David comes up with a new system of measurement. Jason gets ahead of himself. Jason tries to use Japanese terms, but gets them confused, so we learn a few new Japanese terms. We also talk about John Joseph Merlin, who is the first known maker of roller skates, and, an inventor of clockwork robots/automatons…in the 18th century.

We’ll see you back here next week!
