* {{Fanon}}: Julie Dawn Cole reveals during the DVD commentary that she's had multiple people ask her if Wonka dramatically addressing Charlie as "My boy!" before telling him he's won was the supposed to be a LukeIAmYourFather reveal.

** Granted, it's not like there were many techniques to show Violet turning blue onscreen, but it's quite clear that her transformation into a blueberry starts with them shining a purple spotlight on Denise Nickerson's face. Also, if you watch it in fullscreen, you can see the hose that's inflating the rubber suit she's wearing.

** After Wonka plays the musical lock, Mrs. Teevee says "Rachmaninoff" knowledgeably. The joke is that the music is actually from the overture to Mozart's opera ''Le nozze di Figaro'', a rather obscure reference to non-musicians/opera fans.

** [[FridgeBrilliance Then again, it makes perfect sense]] when you consider that Wonka is [[CloudCuckoolander rather bonkers]] and wouldn't object to unnecessary screwiness.
--> A little nonsense, now and then, is relished by the wisest men.

* SacredCow: It was already VindicatedByHistory by the time the 2005 film came out but [[DeaderThanDisco the huge backlash]] against the latter and [[DeadArtistsAreBetter later the death of Gene Wilder in 2016]] firmly pushed the original into this territory. The ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry'' crossover/remake seems poised to become the duo's most-hated direct-to-video thus far, even compared to Warner's previous attempt at shoehorning the duo into an animated remake of a classic fantasy musical (''Film/TheWizardOfOz'', in that case).

** Adter the boat ride, Mike asks, "Why don't they show stuff like that on TV?", a line that sounds even truer now that some TV prints cut out the boat ride.
* InformedWrongness:
** Wonka is portrayed as cold and heartless for denying Charlie the factory and Grandpa Joe begins shouting at him. Except... Wonka has every right to deny Charlie his prize because Charlie ''did'' drink the soda. The worst thing is that trying the drinks was Grandpa Joe's idea!
** Given Wonka's sadistic-seeming disregard to the safety of his guests, it comes off as incredibly hypocritical to act morally outraged at their actions. Also, denying Charlie the prize for a clause which wasn't mentioned at their signing is LoopholeAbuse in spirit if not actual law. Likewise, Charlie and Grandpa Joe almost ''died'' because of sampling the fizzy lifting drinks so denying a child forty or so cases of chocolate seems a tad ridiculous.
** Of course, [[JerkassFacade this was]] [[SecretTestOfCharacter the whole point]].

* ToughActToFollow: One of the biggest reasons adaptations of ''Literature/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'' after this one flop is because the lead is compared to Gene Wilder. Supposedly, Creator/NicholasCage was considered for a never-made adaptation in 1999, but lost interest. Not quite a bad thing, because many believe he'd have made the character even ''darker'' than Creator/TimBurton's interpretation did.

** Violet after she's been turned into a blueberry. She can barely move and, after having a MotorMouth for much of the film, can't muster the words to speak. In addition, she's the only kid who's around for her Oompa-Loompa song, looking utterly humiliated. It doesn't help that she's been rolled around for a minute by the Oompa-Loompas like a beach ball, when Wonka just said she might ''explode''. Given that she comes across as the most pleasant ofnthe naughty kids, you hope she'll leave the factory in one piece.
