On today’s BBC Breakfast, Dan Walker and Louise Minchin brought a fattest bear competition in Katmai National Park to the attention of viewers. One of the bears involved in the competition, and missed out on the title of fattest bear, was named Chunk, which prompted Dan to remember 1985 film, The Goonies.
Louise admitted she felt sorry for Chunk but Dan was distracted as he asked: “Wasn’t Chunk in The Goonies? The old Truffle Shuffle.
“Fantastic! And Sloth! Remember him?”
Looking blankly at Dan, Louise confirmed she didn’t as her presenter concluded: “A fat bear is a successful bear!”
The pair moved on from the segment to talk to Carol Kirkwood who had the latest weather report.

But as the forecast came to an end, Dan was keen to find out if she had also been a fan of The Goonies.
“My question to you Carol, slightly less important but I’m still perturbed Louise didn’t know about Chunk in The Goonies,” Dan remarked.
Turning to his co-host, he asked again: “Chunk in The Goonies?”
He asked the weather presenter: “Carol, Chunk in The Goonies? Truffle Shuffle? No?
