Pizza is a SANDWICH?! ►
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a gem in the history of movies. It stands out not just for the acting and the main story, but all of the things you can find hiding beneath the surface. It is a surprisingly ominous movie and the character of Willy Wonka is at the center of the horror. We've talked about Wonka using the Golden Tickets to pass off his OSHA violations onto the winner, but what if that was not the only trick he's trying to pull? What else is Willy Wonka up to? Watch to find out!

    I think there’s one thing that’s not considered and that’s when the golden tickets were shipped out. Were they shipped out in the same shipment? Remove the factors of Slugworth and adults, I wonder what the results would be?

    The fact that the movie specified Augustus was in West Germany should have helped to date the movie a bit. I know you got there in the end, but that was how I surmised it was somewhere in the 70s myself

    Wait, I just realized, all of the kids are from Europe and America. Charlie is from America. The spoiled rich girl (cant remeber her name) is from I think Britian. The chocolate boy is from germany. The tiny boy is I think from the us, And I'm pretty sure the bubblegum girl is from either britian or the us. None of them are from Australia, or Asia, or Africa, or even South America. That's suprising

    Did the guy think that Charlie was a disappointment to the whole city and so he would have his head pointed to the ground as he walks the sidewalks. That’s why he stuck that dollar way down in the gutter!

    It's really random,but totally spies had a episode where a candy/girl scout cookie was really addictive and caused people to eventually become morbidly obese,what are the calories needed to cause rapid weight gain along with being very addictive. The show had tons of stuff that was scientifically impossible, totally spies was a show about teenage international spies under the employ of a organization called whoop.

    • Nimar

      Why are you explaining Totaly Spies here ? I mean are there even people watching this channel who have never seen how Jerry desperatly tries to write to the eulogy and kept failing to do so ?

    I don't know if this is the right place to put my theory for MatPatt to see, but here goes: If you guys have read/watched the story Beowulf, my theory is that Beowulf and Grendel are brothers. In the story of Grendel (sadly, I don't remember who wrote it.) The last chapter states that Grendel called Beowulf a kinsman. I don't think these stories that I'm mentioning right now is for kids, (as in at all.) because Grendel receives a gory end. But, I hope that this sparks up at least a little bit of interest.

    On the topic of where the movie takes place is questionable to say the least. @ 9:32 Charlie runs past a couple of cars one being a yellow car that has a European front license plate. Not touching on the style of the surrounding buildings.

    Of course he rigged it! What would the odds be that the LAST ticket would be won by a kid,in a world of billions, who lives in the same town as Wonka?

    In 1971 when this documentary was made, wildly wonka sold 2.8 million chocolate bars a month. In the days following his announcement that figure skyrocketed to 1.23 million bars a day. Despite China being a communist nation wonka bars were readily available in China. In 1972 wonka declared sales of 9.72 million bars in China alone and a whopping 14.2 million bars in Asia and the pacific rim (excluding soviet Russia which did not allow the importation of chocolate in a vain attempt to encourage the Lenin bar, a gritty and almost inedible “chocolate bar” that actually contained 16% wheat chaff and only 4% cocoa). Globally 32 million chocolate bars were sold by wonka confectioners inc. in 1971. So nearly half the bars were sold in Asia and none of the five winners were of Asian do the math.

    I have a film theory for you, is captain hook a wizard? Because in Harry Potter the first movie you see captain hooks ghost, in hogwarts over on of the tables, but howarts is so heavily garded that muggles or people who are not wizars can't get in. But yet you see captain hook. Is he a wizard?!?!

    Removal shouldn't be a factor unless you know that once someone found a golden ticket they were removed from the equation, ergo couldn't continue looking for other golden tickets.

    Hi this is a request! I was hoping you could do a theory on Dangonronpa mainly the executions pick at least 3-5 and see how likely you could survive. Thank you for coming to my Ted-Talk. (Also Dangonronpa is an anime and a game I hope you could do it on game theory and for the 3 main games!)
