Munchie is a 1992 comedy film directed by Jim Wynorski. It is an unrelated sequel to the 1987 horror/comedy Munchies.In this movie, Gage Dobson comes across a chest in a cave containing an otherworldly creature named Munchie (voiced by Dom De Luise). Gage sets him free, where he is able to make the wishes expressed by those who become friends of his come true. Gage takes advantage of this to level the playing field with his school bullies and get his mother to get together with the father of his love interest, Andrea. However, Munchie tends to use his magic to cause trouble (and hilarity) to ensue, putting all the blame on poor Gage.
This film provides examples of:
- Absent-Minded Professor: Professor Cruikshank.
- Hey, It's That Guy!: Loni Anderson plays Gage's mother, and his love interest Andrea played by Jennifer Love Hewitt in her film debut (credited as Love Hewitt).

- In Name Only: To 1987's Gremlins rip-off, Munchies.
