--> '''Wonka''': That's exploding candy for your enemies. Great idea. Not ready yet. Needs more gel-ignite.

* The story of how the ending was written, as told in the DVD documentary. Director Mel Stuart hated the last line Dahl wrote (Grandpa Joe saying "Yippee!"), so he halted production until he could get in touch with their other writer David Seltzer, who was on vacation fishing at a remote cabin in the woods in Maine. Stuart managed to get him on a pay phone and demanded he write a new closing line; when Seltzer asked him when he wanted it, he shamelessly insisted, "Now! [[{{Irony}} I want it now}}! [[LifeImitatesArt Like in the song 'I Want It Now'?]] I want it now!" (The line Seltzer [[WritingByTheSeatOfYourPants gave him on the spot over the phone]] ''is'' the one we see in the film!)

* WordOfGod that the actresses who played Veruca and Violet both had ''massive'' crushes on the actor who played Charlie and as such, were somewhat antagonistic towards each other competing over him; the director loved it [[ThrowItIn and used it in the movie]].



* Julie Dawn Cole stated the reason her arms are clamped to the side when she does down the chute, besides the obvious safety ones, was that a very handsome 16-year-old assistant was assigned to catch her below, and Julie was protecting her dignity as much as she could since she was in a dress.



** Incidentally, that one line...took some forty takes to film.
* Meta-Example: Paris Themmen (Mike Teevee) was the youngest and most immature of the child actors, much to the annoyance of nearly everyone during filming. At one point, Gene Wilder was asked in an interview how he was getting along with the children, to which he replied "Oh, four of them are great, and one of them [Paris] I'm going to shoot in the head tomorrow."
** In the DVD commentary track, an adult Themmen cheerfully comments that what you see on the screen was pretty much how he acted in real life.

** Also what happens after that. When Mr. Salt asked what happened to Veruca, Wonka told him she went down the garbage chute, which gave him a chuckle. When he asked where it leads to, Wonka answered "the furnace" which cracks up Mr. Salt. Especially with the idea that she'll be burned alive. But when Wonka points out she could be stuck on the way down, Mr. Salt [[MoodSwinger then panics]] and jumps in to "save" her.
