Franchise / Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

In what is perhaps Roald Dahl's most well-known work, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory tells the tale of a boy named Charlie Bucket who wins a chance to visit the world-famous chocolate factory of the reclusive Willy Wonka.

The popularity of the book has led to several popular adaptations and crossovers.

See Charlie and the Chocolate Parody for parodies based on the franchise (usually the 1970s adaptation).
