What was the name of the dad in "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids"?

  • Wayne Szalinski correct

    Wayne Szalinski is the name of the wacky dad who accidentally uses a shrink ray to shrink his kids to 1/4 of an inch tall. The role was played by Rick Moranis but was offered to John Candy and Chevy Chase before Moranis took it. It was also originally titled "Teenie Weenies". We are pretty glad that none of those things panned out.
