Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory

The Oompa Loompas (little dwarf-like people who work in the chocolate factory) sing, “If the child is a spoiled brat who is to blame? The mother and the father.” Are parents always responsible for their children’s poor behavior?

Charlie pins all his hopes and dreams on finding a winning ticket. Realistically, what kind of odds do you think Charlie was up against? Although the story allows him to attain his desire, does longing for something increase your chances of success in a luck-of-the-draw situation?

In the film, the other winning children are portrayed as greedy or self-centered. Does Charlie’s wish for a ticket demonstrate that he also possesses some of these characteristics?
