‘Back to The Future’ How Did Marty and Doc Meet?

MentalFloss.com talked to Back to the Future co-writer/co-creator Bob Gale. Here’s what the writer had to say about what he and Robert Zemeckis came up with to explain how Marty and Doc got together…

Okay, from the horse’s mouth (yes, I’m the horse — er, co-writer, co-creator): We never explained it in the movie. But the history of the characters that Bob Zemeckis and I created is this…

For years, Marty was told that Doc Brown was dangerous, a crackpot, a lunatic. So, being a red-blooded American teenage boy, age 13 or 14, he decided to find out just why this guy was so dangerous. Marty snuck into Doc’s lab, and was fascinated by all the cool stuff that was there. when Doc found him there, he was delighted to find that Marty thought he was cool and accepted him for what he was. Both of them were the black sheep in their respective environments. Doc gave Marty a part-time job to help with experiments, tend to the lab, tend to the dog, etc.

And that’s the origin of their relationship.

Return to Pooh Corner

So, I have been wanting to post a Return to Pooh Corner song for while now because I know how much Alina likes Winnie the Pooh. I was just going to post audio version of it, but i found a YouTube version of it that Kenny Loggins sings with video scenes from the movies.
