Plot Description

Spoiler warning! This song is sung by the Oompa-Loompas after Mike Teevee has been taken off to be stretched. They claim that television is an idiotic invention that kills imagination and makes children dumb. They urge parents to throw out their televisions and install a bookcase instead. The children used to love reading, and once they’re bored enough they’ll discover it again. As for Mike Teevee, it remains to be seen if they can get him back to his proper height. “But if we can’t – it serves him right.”
