“Truly Scrumptious” – Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
Music and Lyrics: Richard Sherman & Robert Sherman
The title of this song is also the name of the main female character in this whimsical musical about a magic car. She sings and is serenaded by the candy-coated tune after a sweet day out with the car’s owners, a loveably daffy inventor and his children. Indeed, it is a sweet day as the truly scrumptious Eskimo Pie was patented by Christian Nelson on this day in 1922.
