Thoughts, Theories, & Trivia:Charlie & The Chocolate Factory

This is for the book and both of its movie adaptions.

Class undismissed.

  • There's another reason Wonka needed a large candy bar to transmit to television. If he makes a commercial for his chocolate that lets you actually take a candy bar, he'll need to make a lot of it to reach audiences.

Class redimissed!
-Changed his mind.

  • Wonka intended the Golden Tickets for children. What would he have done if an adult had gotten one?

And you. Well you're just lucky to be here.
-Indeed he is.

  • Why did Wonka say just that about Charlie? Because he's the only one of the ticket finders who didn't get press coverage. They would have had little time to find out anything about him. That probably also made him more endearing to Wonka.

Even I'm eatable. But that is called cannibalism, my dear children, and is in fact frowned upon in most society.
-You don't say.

  • In the Tim Burton movie, was Grandpa Joe up and walking around while Charlie and his parents were away?

  • Is there some kind of hive mind going on with the Oompa Loompas?

  • Notice in the Tim Burton movie, Mike doesn't seem particularly obsessed with TV. Maybe he's meant to be more a symbol for young people who have violent tendencies and think they're smarter than those in charge.

Spoilers follow.

  • Of course the winner gets a lifetime supply of chocolate. They'll have the factory for the rest of their lives.
