The name "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" was inspired by a series of actual race cars named "Chitty Bang Bang" - I, II, etc - in the early 1920s, notable for their use of enormous aircraft engines. See more »

Is "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" a classic? I don't know. It's almost a classic, I guess. I've been watching this movie all of my life. It is a beautiful movie to look at. It's filled with great songs. It has very solid performances (for the most part). Then what is keeping it from "classic" status? Its length. It's way too long. Come on, the opening credits go on over six minutes. Although "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" is still a good movie, it's also the kind of movie that you remember being better than it actually is.
