Peanut Butter Solution (Cinema Plus/New World Pictures, 1985)
The Peanbut Butter Solution (French title: Operation beurre de pinottes) was a Canadian 1985 family horror fantasy film. The movie was directed by Michael Rubbo and is the second title in the Tales for All (Contes Pour Tous) series of children’s movies created by Les Productions la Fete. The film features the first English language songs performed by Celine Dion (Listen to the Magic Man and Michael’s Song). Skippy peanut butter paid for product placement promotion in the film.
The plot: Convinced that a recently burned-down structure harbors ghosts, young Michael (Matthew Mackay) and Connie (Siluck Saysanasy) decide to investigate the ruins. In true “urban legend” fashion, what Michael sees inside the structure causes him to go bald on the spot! His distress is mollified when a pair of friendly ghosts whip up a “peanut butter solution” that will ostensibly restore his hair. Michael then gets kidnapped by a paint-brush manufacturer.
