Yes, well, that would do the trick! I knew about including his father as a dentist, but hadn't thought about how he would use that. Thanks for posting this. I should think that device would have a significant effect.
There is also something else I hadn't thought about, which is how WW has been "damaged" by his experiences of the spies...
Enough to sack his workers and employ a new workforce. Betrayal always hurts, maybe more if you are a dreamer. It occurs to me that TB would relate to him because of the way WW keeps on going, pursuing his vision, despite the commercial obstacles he has to overcome. And Johnny too.

My theory is Tim likes the theme of the book and wanted a challenge to his art with the visuals. And he wanted Johnny (of course) and took the time to sell the idea to him, if I recall it took at little encouragement. The good thing is it's a family film so JD didn't have to worry about co-starring with an aardvark.

There are no wrong answers, sar. Jump in anytime!
