* CutSong: An EditedForSyndication case -- Mrs. Bucket's solo "Cheer Up, Charlie" is often cut from commercial TV airings at the director's request, as he felt it was not vital to the narrative. Since the TurnOfTheMillennium, it's become common to leave this in but cut the boat ride sequence instead.

* FriendOrIdolDecision: Charlie is ultimately forced to make a non-lives-in-the-balance version of this decision when he's disqualified from the lifetime supply of chocolate: Should he honor his promise to Mr. Wonka and not sell the Everlasting Gobstopper to Slugworth or sell it and finally lift his family out of poverty? [[spoiler: By choosing ''friend'', he gets the ''idol'' as well.]]

* TruthInTelevision: Most of Mr. Wonka's factory is pure fantasy, but his statement that he's making the geese work even though Easter is over to stock up for next year is, in fact, standard procedure for ''any'' product that is only sold during a holiday season. A company has to manufacture it all year and store it, because the demand for it during the month or so when it's sold is overwhelming.

* MagicPants: Zigzagged -- Violet's belt pops off but the rest of her outfit isn't damaged and indeed seems to change shape as she transforms into a blueberry.

* MagicPants: Zigzagged -- Violet's belt pops off but the rest of her outfit isn't damaged and indeed seems to change shape as she transforms into a blueberry. Justified in that both the character and the actress portraying the character are minors and that this is a children's film.

Added DiffLines:

* SevenDeadlySins: The children's flaws. Augustus is Gluttony; Veruca is Greed; Violet is Pride; Mike is Sloth; and, with very valid reason, Charlie is Envy.
