The Key To Loompaland

Everybody loves to hate the little Mr/Miss Know-It-All, especially in movies.

Remember the scene in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971) where Gene Wilder's Wonka plays the musical lock in order for everyone to enter the chocolate room?

Well, if you're an opera fan, you may have gasped when know-it-all Mrs. Teevee incorrectly identifies The Marriage of Figaro Overture as written by Russian composer Sergei Rachmaninoff and not W.A. Mozart.

Did you shout at the TV like I did?

Fast forward to 3:45 to see the travesty

Mozart-lovers everywhere agree: maybe her son Mike shouldn't have been the only one shrunken by the Wonkavision TV.
