Besides, what happened to Jeremy and Jemima mum?

Jeremy and Jemima were Caractacus' two children. There was never any mention of their mother in the film, it was assumed that Caractacus was a widow. Later in the film, they got captured by Vulgaria's evil Child Catcher. They were played by Adrian Hall and Heather Ripley.

Furthermore, where was the child catcher scene filmed? The Cobstone windmill on the hill where Grandpa Potts, Caractacus and his children Jemima and Jeremy live is near the charming Buckinghamshire village of Turville. Some of the race scenes were set in Box Hill in Surrey. However, the English weather during filming in July 1967 lived up to its unpredictable reputation.

Thereof, what car did Caractacus Potts drive?

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang was the car star from the 1968 MGM and United Artists film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, which was based on a novel by James Bond author Ian Fleming of the same name. The car was invented (in the movie) by British inventor Caractcus Potts.
