Alternate Ending – Goonies Song

Entertainment, Goonies

Just when you thought that there was no more to know about The Goonies, I have this for you.

Richard Donner wanted the Goonies to sing a song when the credits rolled at the end of the movie. A song was written by the onset teacher Rhoda and a tape recording of it was brought onto the set for the kids to learn.
The alternate ending didn’t happen but the author of the song was kind enough to share the lyrics with me, so here you go guys:

Goon Dock, Goon Dock, Goon Dock rock,
That’s the key to unlock
The mystery.
Play that chord in the key of G (for Goonies)
Then all aboard
Open Sesame!!!

Opportunity knocks
To save the Goon Docks
Thanks to one-eyed Willie Wilcox.

Now we’ve found that pirates hoard
In the Goonie Grotto,
Take all that can be stored
Is the Goonie Motto.

Goon Dock, Goon Dock, Goon Dock rock,
That’s the key to unlock
The TREASURE, Wheeeeeee.!!!!!!

Goonies Cartoon

Entertainment, Goonies

Cartoon Network and The Donners’ Company were working on a cartoon version of The Goonies that would have picked up right where the movie left off. It was going to incorporate all the deleted scenes from the original (like the Gorillas, Leeches, etc.) along with new adventures.

The latest word on what has stopped the production is that the cast wanted too much money for their likeness. We heard the first contract was rejected (this isn’t uncommon in the industry), but no follow up was made by Cartoon Network to work something out. Let’s remember that the original cast makes nothing from all the Goonies DVD’s and TV showings that continue to sell today, so I’m sure all they wanted was a fair share of the profits. Hopefully they will work something out in the near future. We will keep up on this if something develops.
