This week, the gang at How Did This Get Made? covered The Peanut Butter Solution, a mid-80s children’s fantasy film about a suddenly-bald 11-year-old boy who uses a peanut-butter-powered magic potion to try and grow his hair back
The key to understanding The Peanut Butter Solution is Rock Demers—the French-speaking, Canadian producer whose beloved Reading–Rainbow-like “Tales for All” series of films has been captivating children around the world since 1985. The same year, in fact, that The Peanut Butter Solution came out. So to get to the bottom of that film, as well as understand how it fit into his Tales for All vision, I spoke with Mr. Demers.
