* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'': Five golden diskettes for a trip to visit the NoCelebritiesWereHarmed version of StephenHawking in a machine factory. All the other four kids are insufferable brainiacs like Dexter, but he's not the one who gets the golden diskette - Dee-Dee is. Fortunately for him, each winner was allowed to take a guest with them. Easily the strangest parody piece yet.

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'''s gone to this particular well many times. They've spoofed the Lickable Wallpaper scene and the "Oompa-Loompas as Wonka's slaves" conceit, and imagined such scenarios as the Oompa-Loompas' writers' room, what would have happened had Veruca Salt actually got an Oompa-Loompa as she wanted, and Charlie Bucket ending up talking the fall for what Mr. Wonka did to the other kids, by the latter's design.

** Goose Gladwell is an obvious {{Expy}} of Willy Wonka (he sells novelty items) in "Fat Man and Little Boy".

* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'''s gone to this particular well a few times with skits spoofing (in turn) the Lickable Wallpaper scene, the "Oompa-Loompas as Wonka's slaves" conceit, and the question of how the Oompa-Loompas came up with their {{Crowd Song}}s (turns out they have a writer's room).

Since the late [[TheNineties 1990s]], if not before, it's been almost mandatory that an animated show that stays on air long enough will have a ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' parody episode. Live-action shows have taken cracks at it as well. Such parodies usually explicitly mimic the 1971 adaptation ''Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory'', owing to its memorable and easily repurposed musical numbers and the idiosyncracies of Gene Wilder's [[TheWonka Willy Wonka]]. Beyond out-and-out retellings of the storyline, spoofs of specific scenes and other shorter-form parodies are popular.

* ''LucyTheDaughterOfTheDevil'' had one of these set in a dildo factory. With TheDevil (voiced by H Jon Benjamin, no less) as Willy Wonka. And yes, the Devil sang songs about dildos while the lucky contest-winning girls toured his room where everything was made out of dildos. He even overreacted when a girl stole a motor for a vibrator.
