!!The Film Itself
* Everyone, adults included, eating to their heart's content in the Chocolate Room.
* When Charlie returns the Gobstopper, feeling himself not worthy.
-->'''Wonka''': [[Theatre/TheMerchantOfVenice So shines a good deed in a weary world...]] (To Charlie) Charlie? My boy. (Shouts in excitement) YOU WON! YOU DID IT! I KNEW YOU WOULD DO IT! Oh, Charlie I am sorry to put you through this, please forgive me. (To Mr. Wilkinson) COME HERE, MR. WILKINSON! (To Charlie) Charlie, Meet Mr. Wilkinson!
-->'''Mr. Wilkinson''': (Formerly Slugworth) It's a pleasure!
-->'''Charlie''': IT'S SLUGWORTH!
-->'''Wonka''': NO! NO! NO! That's not Slugworth, He works for me!
-->'''Charlie''': For you?
-->'''Wonka''': Yes, I had to test you, Charlie and you passed the test! You've won!
-->'''Grandpa Joe:''' WON WHAT?!?
-->'''Wonka''': The Jackpot, My dear. It's the grand and glorious jackpot!
-->'''Charlie''': You mean the chocolate?
-->'''Wonka''': The chocolate?!? Oh, Yes! The chocolate! But that is just the beginning. We have so much time and so little to do! (To Wilkinson) Wait a minute! Strike that Reverse it! Thank You! This way, Please! We will take the Wonkavator! Step right in Charlie! Grandpa Joe, Sir!
* The ENTIRE ending, with Wonka giving Charlie his chocolate factory as the prize. Doubled that Wonka doesn't even flinch or hesitate before Charlie asks if he can bring his family too.
-->'''Willy Wonka''': But Charlie, don't forget what happened to the man who suddenly got everything he ever wanted.\\
'''Charlie''': What's that?\\
'''Willy Wonka''': [[HappilyEverAfter He lived happily ever after.]]\\
''(they hug)''
* When Charlie finds the Golden Ticket. Even better is the fact that the people around him, in contrast to the desperate and greedy mobs we've seen trying to get a hold of tickets earlier, actually seem happy for him and even get protective when a crowd starts forming.
-->'''Mr. Jopek:''' Run for it, Charlie! Run straight home and don't stop till you get there!
** Also doubles as CrowningMomentOfAwesome.
* Charlie, who can't be more than ten or so, spending the first money he ever earned in his life on his desperately poor family instead of himself.
* The song "The Candy Man Can" near the beginning is full of [[{{Pun}} sugary sweet]] imagery. "Who can take tomorrow, wrap it in a dream, separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream? The candy man can!" It's a very hard song not to smile at!
* "Pure Imagination". It's just so sweet and heartwarming.
** After the first stanza, Wonka looks at Violet and she gives a nervous little smile.
** The usually apathetic Wonka using his cane to give candy to Violet and Mike, the latter when he was struggling to reach it.
** Grandpa Joe and Charlie exchanging giant candy canes, realizing that they're the same, then chuckle as they eat them.
* As is "I've Got a Golden Ticket"
-->'''Grandpa Joe:''' I never thought my life could be/anything but catastrophe,
-->But suddenly I begin to see/ a bit of good luck for me...
* The fact that Mr. Beauregarde vows to get even with Wonka for what happens to Violet. Despite his self-centered tendencies, as he tried to use her interview time to plug his car lot, he does care for his daughter and he's the only parent who actually promises legal action against Wonka.

* The cast members had high praise for each other.
** At various points during the DVD Commentary, the now-grown kids sing Jack Albertson's praises.
** The young man who played Mike Teavee gave Creator/GeneWilder all kinds of grief, but he was very dear to Wilder later.
** Wilder made it clear that despite the fury that Wonka displayed, he loved Peter Ostrum, and he did for the rest of his life.
** When Augustus is introduced, the actors recognize the restaurant as one that they frequented during filming. They each speak fondly of the dessert menu.
* Julie Dawn Cole's memoir ''I Want It Now'' is chock-full of these. For instance, she shares pictures of her original copy of ''Charlie and the Chocolate Factory'', where the entire cast wrote personal notes next to illustrations of their respective characters like a high school yearbook.
** Her birthday celebration also counts, from Gene arranging a color photographer to document her special day to the various gifts the cast gave her. In addition, her mother was able to come all the way to Munich with a birthday cake from their local bakery.
** The pic of Julie and Denise in Bavarian dresses is quite adorable.
** Julie became very close with Roy Kinnear, viewing him as a surrogate father. During the long breaks between filming, Kinnear would keep her entertained by reciting a Scottish poem over and over again.
* Creator/GeneWilder's passing in 2016 from Alzheimer's, despite being obviously saddening, the information regarding it is pretty heartwarming: The official statement [[http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2016/08/30/gene_wilder_s_family_issues_a_statement_on_his_alzheimer_s_and_circumstances.html released by his family]] announcing his death mentioned that Wilder had the disease since 2013, yet kept the news private until the end, as he did not want his youngest fans to worry about "poor old Mr. Wonka" and feel sad for him when they saw him in public. He couldn't bear the thought of being the cause of "one less smile in the world". Many celebrities end up regretting their iconic film roles and would have used their condition to either lash out or just as likely get people to leave them alone. Wilder on the other hand understood the power of the role and wanted to ensure that every child and adult who saw him would be comfortable coming up and saying hello. He cared for children THAT MUCH.
** The cast's tributes on Twitter also count.
-->'''Julie Dawn Cole (Veruca):''' "Time is a precious thing, never waste it." #genewilder :'(
-->'''Denise Nickerson (Violet):''' But weren't we so very fortunate to have been able to spend ANY time with such a beautiful soul, let alone 6-9 weeks!
** Peter Ostrum (Charlie) described Wilder's death as losing a parent. Also, upon learning of Gene Wilder's passing, Ostrum changed his social-media profile to read, "Former-child-actor, veterinarian, inherited a chocolate factory on 29 August 2016".
** Paris Themmen (Mike) posted a tribute picture on Facebook of the Wonkavator flying into the sky.
