* ''Videogame/{{Runescape}}'''s 2016 Easter event; Sliske and The Chocolate Factory, complete with Golden Tickets (from chocolate butterflies), Everlasting Gobstoppers and even the fact that there are 5 golden tickets. the punishments being Wendy falling down a pit (Veruca Salt), Farquie gets caked with chocolate (Augustus Gloop), Gilly Willikers folds on himself into nothing from eating spatially-folded chocolate (Violet Beauregarde eating experimental gum, however shrinking may partially be based on Mike Teevee shrinking). Farmer Jimbo floats up to the top of the room from drinking Eaglade. best of all is the Oompa Loompas, here called the Bobble-numbskulls with a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kbWeQAcGTFM parody song]]. (they can't even [[YouWannaGetSued allow the song to be permanently unlocked for free listening]] due to copyright issues.)

* In the runup to the debut of ''The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn'', one of the ads had Kilborn dressed as Willy Wonka and performing a parody of "Pure Imagination" describing what his talk show would be like.

** 16 years later, future ''Late Late Show'' host James Corden parodied Willy Wonka in his premiere episode from March 2015, with a pre-taped video showing CBS head Les Moonves inserting a golden ticket into chocolate bars, with the winner becoming The Late Late Show's new host. Numerous comedians and actors were shown opening bars with no ticket, while Corden recieved the ticket in a bar accidentally dropped by Chelsea Handler (who was among many speculated candidates for the gig.)

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.

*** The comics also featured a briefer but more direct parody of "The Candy Man" entitled "The Brandy Man", during an ImagineSpot after Homer temporarily takes over Moe's Tavern.

* The 2014 London edition of ''Theatre/ForbiddenBroadway'' spoofs the [[Theatre/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory 2013 stage musical adaptation]] with "No Imagination", a parody of the story's BootstrappedTheme [[Film/WillyWonkaAndTheChocolateFactory "Pure Imagination"]] (which had been incorporated into an otherwise new song score). Gags include West End musical stalwart Elaine Paige turning up as an Oompa-Loompa, a malfunctioning Great Glass Elevator (referring to real life issues the show had with that particular effect), and the show being accused not only of being unoriginal but a FollowTheLeader to ''Theatre/{{Matilda}}'', another musical adapted from a Creator/RoaldDahl novel (it isn't -- well before ''Matilda'' opened, ''Charlie'' was in the works).

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' did [[http://snltranscripts.jt.org/02/02hwonka.phtml a sketch]] with AlGore as Willy's accountant brother, Glen.
-->'''Glen:''' What I'm saying, William, is that, thanks to your wizwarbulous ideas, this factory is ''hemorrhaging money!!'' You have a chocolate river running through here! And I'm pretty sure earlier today a fat kid drowned in it. You tell me how that's helping our bottom line!
-->'''Wonka:''' Glen, please, take it easy!
-->'''Glen:''' Wait! I almost forgot! There's that billion dollars you spent on that machine that turns ''giant'' candy bars into ''tiny'' chocolate bars. Help me wrap my brain around that one 'cause I'm missing the big profit opportunity!

* ''ZekeAndLuther'' had an episode where Zeke's [[AnnoyingYoungerSibling little sister]] found a golden golf ball. The donut shop's owner then made her his heiress and started teaching her the trade. However, it all ended when he learned she intended to tear it down in favor of a more profitable venture. In the end, she found another golf ball. Not wanting to invoke the HereWeGoAgain trope, she gave the ball to a customer standing near her.

-->'''Jack''': I do admire Wonka. He's a true capitalist. His factory has zero government regulations, slave labor, and an indoor boat. Wonderful. During the tour, the candidates will drop their guard and show their true selves without even knowing it.\\
'''Kenneth''': And then you choose the one who’s purest of heart!\\
'''Jack''': What? No, Kenneth, this is broadcast television. It's a nasty, ruthless business.\\
'''Kenneth''': No, sir. It's a magical, [[{{Malaproper}} ruth-filled]] business!
* Though more of an homage than a parody, ''TopChefJustDesserts'' had a challenge where the chefs had to recreate the "Pure Imagination" scene from the original movie, ending up with a room full of chocolate waterfalls, edible flowers and trees, etc. The winning entry was a garden of carrot-shaped carrot cakes (that had to be individually pulled out of the "ground"). And they had the (former-)child actors from the movie come to help with the judging.
