"There's a film about a kung fu fighting toddler who gets drunk on milk."

Does anyone know the name of this film?

Wouldn't the current image fit Fake High better? The kids seem to think they're drinking wine/champagne while the parents are amused by the fact that they just gave them non-alcoholic grape juice.

  • I think Obelix from Astérix drowned his sorrows in goat's milk, though the TV Tropes page disagrees. In this case, I assume that drinking goat's milk isn't an attempt at avoiding censorship, but being accurate to the genre and audience.
    • He did, once, in Asterix And Caesar's Gift. Not too frequent, though—there's your answer, in any case.
    • People do drink actual alcohol in Asterix - Obelix is just a bit more childish than most.
      • In Asterix in Britain Obelix is shown being disgusted by warm beer. He started off eagerly enough, implying some experience with the beverage as served in continental Europe...

I can't fix the natter in that without being familiar with Asterix.

This stuff is hard to fix, but one has to know that Obelix Can't Hold His Liquor. In Asterix in Britain, Asterix tells Anticlimax that Obelix usually only drinks Goat milk, so wine has a terrible effect on him (well, he also likes beer, but beer in France has about one third of the alcohol level wine has).

I should add that malt is a way to make beer, so the name does hit some Fridge Logic.

Oops... I thought malts were only of the ice cream variety. Sorry. Well, the trope is fresh minted, the name could be changed to something with less potential ambiguity.
