A poor but hopeful boy seeks one of the five coveted golden tickets that will send him on a tour of Willy Wonka's mysterious chocolate factory.
According to the novel, Grandpa Joe is said to be ninety-six-and-a-half years old. Jack Albertson was sixty-three at the time of filming.
All right, all right, all right, what's it going to be? A Triple Cream Cup for Christopher. A Sizzler for June Marie. And listen!
Bill: Wonka's got a new one today.
Children: What is it?
Bill: This is called a Scrumpdiddlyumptious Bar.
Denise Nickerson misspells her character's name on the contract as Violet Beauregard, instead of Beauregarde with an 'e' on the end.
At the same time as the end credits are playing, the film shows the Wonkavator rising higher and higher.
In some TV versions, Veruca Salt's mother is edited out of the sequence in which Veruca "finds" her golden ticket. In the version shown on the Fox Family Channel network, the entire boat scene is deleted, as well as the auction scene, the wonka bar ransom scene, and the scene with the lickable wallpaper.
