It’s been 48 years since Dick Van Dyke starred in one of his all-time favourite roles in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Now, the 90-year-old screen legend has shown the world he’s still got it.

Imagine going for a meal and seeing Dick Van Dyke walk into the room?

Lucky diners in a Denny’s restaurant in Los Angeles got a glimpse of Dick Van Dyke, and more, after a recent TV appearance by the legendary actor.

With his group of crooners The Vantastix by his side, the Hollywood icon sang an a cappella rendition of the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang theme song.

Watching the video is like a flashback to Dick Van Dyke’s character Caractacus Potts singing the catchy tune, which was nominated for an Academy Award.

What a treat!

If that wasn’t great enough, word is that Dick Van Dyke and fellow Mary Poppins star Julie Andrews could be returning for a widely anticipated sequel to the hit musical – more than 50 years after it first hit the big screen.

Wouldn’t that be exciting?
