Ten years after the events of ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', tragedy strikes just before the first Willy Wonka Candy Emporium in twenty years is about to open in UsefulNotes/LasVegas. Someone has murdered 22-year old Charlie Bucket and dumped his body out in the desert, and it is up to the Las Vegas CSI team to figure out who could have killed him and why. Naturally, things aren't so cut and dried, especially as the team explores further into Mr. Wonka's magical world.

!! This fanwork contains examples of:
* AscendedFanboy: Greg Sanders, in-universe, by the end.
* CrackFic: ...yeah. It's a Series/{{CSI}} / Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory crossover fic. How could it ''not'' be?
* CrowdSong: The Oompa Loompas break into that twice, once while giving their witness statement.
* DistantFinale: The story serves as this to ''Film/CharlieAndTheChocolateFactory'', though it's a DeadlyDistantFinale for Charlie.
* FurAndLoathing: Played with.
* GeniusDitz: Willy Wonka. Charlie was the CloudCuckoolandersMinder in his latter days.
* [[QuipToBlack Grissom One-Liner]]: Natch. Provides the TitleDrop at the very beginning.
* HeadTiltinglyKinky: Greg Sanders meets Violet Beauregard, now a contortionist with Creator/CirqueDuSoleil. She is combing her hair. With her feet. From behind. In the nude.
* HollywoodNerd: The CSI team.
* InsufferableGenius: Mike Teavee.
* TheLabRat: Greg, though he is given the opportunity to do some investigation on his own when Gil and Catherine are off trying to interview Wonka.
* LevelAte: The chocolate room. And Wonka's factory.
* LogicBomb: Grissom, trying desperately to make the fanciful stuff he encounters jibe with how he knows the world works.
* MagicVersusScience: Trying to analyze a piece of Wonka candy in the mass spectrometer has spectacular results. Walkie-talkies don't work within the Wonka Emporium. Cell phones don't work inside the Chocolate Factory.
* MathematiciansAnswer:
-->''The bouncer – who looked big enough to actually bounce Greg against the sidewalk if he wanted to – peered closely at Greg's ID. "What's this about?"''
-->''"I just need to ask her a few questions. It won't take long."''
-->''"All right – but if you're just another one of those perverts—"''
-->''"I'm not. I'm cool."''
-->''"—she'll break your neck herself. I think she's a black belt or something."''
-->''Greg frowned. "Karate? Judo, Jujitsu?"''
* ManChild: Willy Wonka. The only time he acts his age is when he gets news of Charlie's death.
* MyCard: Gil gives one to Wonka after asking him some questions
* RichBitch: Veruca Salt, who got pissed off when Charlie decided not to make a business alliance between her company and Wonka's. [[spoiler:It ends up deconstructed. Even if still enough of a bitch that she looked like a sure-fire culprit, she still cares about the fact Charlie got killed and blowing up about the business alliance aside, she wasn't ''that'' much of a bitch ''to'' him -- they were even SecretlyDating]].
* RubberMan: Mike Teavee.
* SpitTake: Catherine tells Gil about the Chocolate Room. Gil is eating tomato soup at the time.
* {{Squee}}: Greg Sanders' reaction to finally meeting Willy Wonka is to run around the lab screaming "OH MY GOD OH MY GOD OH MY GOD!"
* StuffBlowingUp: [[spoiler: The Las Vegas Wonka Emporium is firebombed two thirds of the way through.]]
* TitleDrop: The fact that Charlie was drowned in a molten chocolate leads to the obvious remark.
* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Violet. And blue skin, apparently.
