Willy Wonka Mad Scientist VII

Mike Teavee’s fate at the other end of his teletransporter adventure is to be re-assembled — but not quite at the right scale.  In the 1971 adaptation this means a not-too-convincing front projection effect to show Mike to scale with his profoundly dismayed mother.

Special effects technology had improved a lot by the time of the 2005 adaptation, but Mike still ends up tiny.

The concept of someone shrunk to really tiny through either magic or mad science is at least as old as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (and probably much older). but the 1971 adaptation is the first cinematic version of the idea I can recall seeing, and probably the first that many other people can recall seeing as well.

And unsurprisingly, it’s fetish fuel for some.   For one thing, if you shrink only the person but not the clothes, it’s a way to get someone naked in a hurry.  (It’s the flip side, of course, of making someone expand dramatically without the clothes adapting.)  I’ll admit, I’ve gone there before, and I’ll go there again with a slight re-write, if only because I want to try out a bit of new blogging technology.   I’ve been trying to figure out a means for comic book scripting in HTML that shows possible underlying panel and page geometry better than a simple linear script.  Of course that’s not something that a person of ordinary prudence and common sense would attempt, but since I’m clearly not one of those, here goes:

STACEY, a voluptuous coed, is wearing a short skirt and a v-neck shirt with the words GNOSIS COLLEGE written on it She is stepping onto the transporter pad, a circular raised dais with large cables running into it.

CAPTION: A demonstration for the skeptic!

STACEY: Professor Oddbol, are you sure this is safe?

A full-on view of PROFESSOR ODDBOL, who is wearing a full-length labcoat and a pair of heavy goggles, and standing behind some sort of elaborate control panel.

ODDBOL: Perfectly safe, my dear. I propose only to send you across the room..

Stacey is being picked up by Oddbol’s hand (the scaling shows that Stacey has shrunk down to the size of Oddbol’s index finger.

CAPTION: Looks like Oddbol will being doing some interesting experiments soon.

STACEY (balloon with tiny words): Put me down!

There is a Stacey-shaped FLASH where Stacey was standing on the platform. Stacey’s now-hollow clothes are caught in mid-action beginning to fall to the pad.

CAPTION: Transported!


STACEY (partially jagged balloon): Well, okay but…EEEK!

A tiny Stacey is standing, nude, covering her private pats with her hands. Behind her, the giant face of Oddbol can be seen looming. He is scratching his head.

STACEY (balloon with tiny words): Help me!

ODDBOL: Oh dear. There seems be a problem with the matter scaler.

It’s worth noting, I suppose, that Tim Burton, whom the Gods blessed with abundant weird and who did both the 2005 Willy Wonka adaptation as well as a recent version of Alice in Wonderland does toy with the idea that shrinking and growing will get the pretty girl out of her clothes.  But of course, since it’s a PG-rated movie made within the Empire of Mouse, he only toys with the idea.

Out on the wide Internet, we might be poor in resources but we are rich in creative freedom, and people go much deeper into the kink of shrinking.  One of the finest might be the Minimizer, who really has a thing for shrinking women, and unsurprisingly often for the mad science that might lead to their creation.  Ve comes up with the most becoming of sketches.

Should you wish to extract some extra kink from the image, the (probably) mad scientist who wields the pencil which helpfully provides a sense of scale here is a woman.

The Minimizer does commissions.  And the links page shows that there are some people who are clearly way into all this.  I wonder how much of it might have started with Mike Teavee… [Faustus May 11, 2018: This information is probably no longer current as the Minimizer’s site appears to be no longer maintained. The one link in the post above is to a preserved version in the Internet Archive.]

One thought on “Willie Wonka Mad Scientist VI

  1. There is a Hollywood film from 1940 called Dr. Cyclops where the mad scientist shrinks several people down to 6 inches through the use of radium (?). There is also The Attack of the Puppet People, a drive-in era film where the scientist disintigrates his victims with ultrasound and reconstitutes them in a smaller, denser size. Of course, I think he would end up with doll-size people who would weight ~160 lbs, each, but we never got that far.
