So you know how when Willie and Alex first meet Willie tells him that Mozart died from eating bad hotdogs?
Well, headcanon that Willie is like that all the time. He knows the most absolutely random stuff and has a fun fact for literally every situation. He just spews the most strange knowledge at the weirdest times and nobody ever expects it even though he’s always doing it. Examples-
Alex: It was so embarrassing! I wanted to bang my head against a wall.
Willie: If you do that for an hour it’ll burn 150 calories 😀
Alex: Reggie genuinely thought that chocolate milk came from brown cows.
Willie: He’s not alone! So does 7% of the US adult population.
Luke: We want our band to blow up! We want to be big, y’know, like Elvis or someone!
Willie: Well, despite his fame and fourteen nominations, Elvis actually only won three Grammys, so... 😬
Alex: I have a headache. Any ideas on how to get rid of it?
Willie: You could try trepanning - it’s a method that’s been used since the Stone Age where you drill a hole in your skull to release the evil spirits trapped inside 😊
Willie: The lining of your stomach has to replace itself every three to four days otherwise you’d digest yourself.
Julie, pushing her food away: Thanks, Willie.

WHY YOU NEED TO WATCH JULIE AND THE PHANTOMS
the LGBTQ rep is IMMACULATE. the plot between willie and alex is so cute, and their chemistry is literally so good
the songs are FIRE. I haven’t heard original songs this good since hsm/camp rock era
julie (played by madison reyes) can sing so well it honeslty blows my mind. her acting is also so so good.
the three boys have geniune friendship without any toxic masculinity and it is honestly so refreshing. they’re not afraid to show their feelings and I LOVE THAT
it’s honestly just casted so well. some teen/ya tv shows are cringey but this one is not i promise you
it stays mostly light while touching on heavier subject lines
its genuinely really funny
the jar jar binks joke had be actually laughing out loud
an amazing villian. he gives me dr facillier vibes.
please watch it i want a season two
PLEASE WATCH IT SO I CAN HAVE PEOPLE TO FREAK OUT WITH

Can we just talk about how all characters that we are supposed to like are actually... likeable? Loveable, even? It may seem silly, but most shows/movies have one or a few characters that are supposed to catch our attention in a positive way, but just end up coming off as annoying or unnecessary. Meanwhile everyone in JATP is just so interesting and precious. I mean...
Julie: Literal sunshine. Too good for this world. KILLER FASHION CHOICES. Strong personality, nice to everyone. Angel voice. Has been through a lot, which simultaneously gives us many good emotional scenes and show us how strong she is. Talented and sweet. Really handled everything so well, especially considering she's like 16?
Luke: Himbo #1. He's always so passionate about singing, playing, song-writting and just music in general, and it's so beautiful to watch??? Boy has talent and passion, what more do you want? Besides, he's a real sweetheart. Babey. If you don't feel like wrapping him in a warm hug after unsaid emily, you're lying.
Reggie: Himbo #2. Funny and adorable. A baby. The scenes where he tries to interact with the Molinas are 🥺. Also sweet to everyone. They might not have told us, but we know that boy is bi disaster if I have ever seen one. Always killing it in the bass. An actual puppy.
Alex: Himbo #3. BABY GAY PANIC. Lil relatable anxious baby. I find his sarcasm so hilarious. Has proved us more than once he has at least one functional brain cell, but often misplaces it, poor thing. Every little dance move he did has cleared my skin and watered my garden. Witty remarks. Of course, TALENT. Baby is in love with skater baby. So soft.
Willie: Literally so chill, like?? I'd love to be his friend? Lil' skater gay. I mean, his idea of an almost date or something is screaming in a museum. ADORABLE. Gives us angsty feels with the whole Caleb still owns his soul thing and the regretting bringing the boys to Caleb thing. A softie.
Flynn: The most supportive friend ever. 'Oh, so you joined a ghost band? Cool, I'll be your manager'. Also killer fashion sense, I take no criticism on that. Talented, smart baby. A little dramatic but only in the best possible way. Cares a lot. The only one there who somewhat knows how to deal with Carrie lmao. Voice of reason.
Ray: The best dad to ever dad. I can't explain how much of a great dad he is. So, so supportive. So chill. Proud dad mode is always on, no matter what. The scene where he's "talking" to Julie's mom is so🥺. Julie's number one fan.
Carlos: The only one who's close to getting what's going on in that house. Such a good brother, like? Trying to change the subject at the dinner table when Julie was caught "lying", and then giving up filming the phantoms once he heard Julie talking to them about their mom?? I'M SOFT🥺
