    For the start of the video, when he said "I said it to me girl and now me girls my wife"
    ... When I was a kid I thought "my girl" I thought he meant daughter... I was *very* confused... For a long while...

    Matpat, you forgot something. I heard that there were "Third Farthing" coins (Basically, 1/12 of a Penny/Pence) that existed until 1913. (3 years after the events of the movie) Wouldn't they have rounded it down to that?

    Once for a school play they had Mary Poppins and they cut about 50 to 75% of the movie to save time. So this was the first I even herd the rest of the plot

    Mr. Banks didn’t buy kite materials with the tuppence. He ended up giving it to the bank people and told them to guard it well. This comes up in the second movie and is present in the first as well.

    I have a theory that Mary Poppins is actually drugging the children and that's why she gives them "medicine" so much and that's why they can "jump into paintings" and stuff

    The point that's missing here is that he was teaching Michael to put money in and then KEEP putting money in. Depending on the frequency of investment, dollar cost averaging would have seen Michael come out VERY well in that amount of time.

    Yeah but saving and investing money isn't about ONE deposit, it's about consistently putting in a little bit at a time and letting that build up and grow. Putting the very small amount of money a child has into a savings account isn't going make that kid rich in and of itself, but it will go a long way to giving them the habits that will let them have a decent amount to retire on when they get older.

    When you try and watch the old Mary Poppins with you're parents and they say that they have the DVD, but you, the youngest child, with a really good memory, tries to convince them that we had the _Friggin_ VCR.
    Yeah both movies were fun.

    Yeah have fun with THAT STORY.
    Yeah I have a DVD player

    And yes we had a VCR
    And yes we still have the tapes

    In a box in the basement.

    Okay have fun.

    And watch the movies.

    Okay for real now, Bye. Thanks For Clicking Readmore.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this episode Mat, proud that you educated the viewers more on financial literacy.
    On the note of the UK Government, douche move but then again there was the Great Depression, so it was
    a lose-lose situation.

    When you print money, that IS inflation. Prices going up is the result of inflation. And for anyone wondering, that's what Quantitative Easing is. Which the Obama Administration did to an insane degree. When the stock market plummets in the next year or so, be prepared for prices to skyrocket.

    One minor issue. Probably pointed out here before. Michael gave the tuppence to his dad. His dad then gave it to the bank. In the sequel, it is revealed that the now adult Banks children are in financial difficulty, and are looking for a shares certificate in the bank worth £20,000 in 1935 money. At the end of the film though, it is also revealed that somehow, that tuppence has been invested well enough by the bank that the money it made was somehow more than enough to solve their financial issues that £20,000 would have covered to stop their home from being reposessed.
    Please do an unexpected part 2 that tries to figure out how this was done?

    @ 5:37 maybe explain (de)inflation ?
    I bet michael can buy a-lot more back than with his two tuppence that I can with $0.11.
    So re do your math using two tuppence buying powder vs. current money value ?
    Google shopping shows,. kite string is about $6.50 and newspaper is about $1.00
    So there,... two tuppence is about $ 7.50 DONE
