Episode 83: Touching Wonka’s Tie

Time for a mid-week sweet treat!

In minute 83, Veruca is finishing her song. She meets her end in this minute…you’ll have to listen if you don’t know how. Mr. Salt, of course has a very specific reaction to her end. We discuss the composition and orchestration of the song. We discuss the logistics of knocking a set of boxes over in the same order for continuity’s sake. We also talk about how this set of actors comports themselves when they’re not the focus of the action. We also talk about how one falls through a trap door without hurting or embarrassing themselves.

Episode 69: Obligatory Joke

I hope you’re having a nice Friday.

In minute 69, we’re still in the inventing room. We see lots of little glimpses of things that Willy Wonka is working on. Mr. Salt spends time sucking up to Wonka, and does so very well. By the end of the minute, we’re well on our way to seeing the famed candy that this show is named after. David gives us the lowdown on gelignite, which Wonka says is the secret behind the exploding candy, and questions using this material in candy. Also, we discuss the appropriateness of the Ogden Nash poem “Reflections on Ice Breaking” in a children’s film.

Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you back here on Monday!
