* TheReveal at the end throws a goodly chunk of the preceding action into a warmer and fuzzier light with some thought. [[spoiler: Mr. Wonka was sensitive enough to realize Charlie might be who he was looking for and rigged his own contest to give the boy a chance to prove it. And though he couldn't make any Pet the Dog moves without risking the Secret Tests, he made sure the boy got to bask in the same limelight the other finders did.]]

* When Charlie discovers the final Golden Ticket at the sweetshop, the shopkeeper's at first just awed and overjoyed to bear witness to the find, but he proceeds to tell off the many bystanders offering to buy it off of Charlie. He then tells the boy that he's glad to see someone who clearly needs some good luck in his life actually get it.

** To clarify: Wonka's father Wilbur was a dentist who regarded candy of all kinds as a waste of time. [[spoiler: He only let his son trick-or-treat to know what to expect, before burning the candy he collected. Once a chocolate survived unscathed and Willy tried it, leading him to become a chocolatier. This caused the falling out with his father.]] On the walls of his surgery however, was every single newspaper clipping about his son since the day he left. His love for his son overrode any sense of anger he had at his act of rebellion and natural dislike of all things sugary. ''Aaaawww''.

To top it off, he's willing to overlook Willy's profession when he discovers his pearly whites are indeed pearly after all.

* There's an ExactWords twist in the late going that leads to an unusual, subtle heartwarming moment. It turns out that with regards to the lifetime supply of sweets, [[spoiler: one Everlasting Gobstopper qualfies as such]]. Charlie is willing to accept this, which suggests that [[spoiler: he's not only grateful for even a small gift but ''can understand the giver's thinking'' -- that contrary to Grandpa Joe's assumption, it is not a trick but simply Mr. Wonka's unconventional way of keeping a huge promise]].
* TheElevenOClockNumber in this version, as Willy Wonka takes Charlie up in the Great Glass Elevator and reveals that the boy's won the factory, is a lift from [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory the 1971 adaptation]]: the iconic "Pure Imagination". The placement of the song this late in the show, as the culmination of this show's overarching Aesop about the transformative power of imagination (Charlie's CheerfulChild nature despite his meager circumstances owes a lot to it, for instance), is touching enough, and Creator/DouglasHodge's performance on the cast album is incredibly warm and wonderful -- in every sense of the word.

* TheReveal at the end -- [[spoiler: the tramp was Willy Wonka]] -- throws a goodly chunk of the preceding action into a warmer and fuzzier light; it turns out that the path to the happy ending began simply because [[spoiler: someone was moved by a poor boy's kind, appreciative, imaginative nature]].
