Based on Ian Fleming’s timeless story for children and later made into the famous 1968 film, in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang we meet absent-minded inventor Caractacus Potts who restores a broken-down old racing car with the help of his children Jemima and Jeremy. Soon the family discovers the car has magical powers, and along with the delectable Truly Scrumptious, the family end up on a hilarious fantastical adventure to far-off lands. Their heart-warming journey makes Chitty Chitty Bang Bang a fun-filled hit for all the family.
