  • When Willy comes out of the factory for the first time, his shadow on the carpet disappears and reappears! - RoadDogg
  • In the white TV room, when Mike says "Lights, camera, action!", The Ompaloopa that's working the camera puts on his goggles, then a couple seconds later the same Ompaloompa puts on his goggles with a surprised face! - RoadDogg
  • In this Movie there are tons of hair mistakes. - RoadDogg
  • In the "Fizzy lifting drink" scene you can see the wire holding them up, and up can she buches in Charlie's pants from the harness. - RoadDogg
  • After the scene when Charlie finds the money. He buys the first Wonka Bar, but when he goes back to get the second one the candyman takes a clear jar off the self. Then opens it and looks inside! Why would you need to open it to look in side a clear jar!!!!! - RoadDogg
  • When Charlie is watching the TV about the Golden tickets for the first time, he turns around to talk to Grandpa Joe. When he does, the TV is off! - Bob
  • It seems strange that a family that can't even afford a loaf of bread can afford a TV in their house! Maybe it was a gift, but why not sell it? - Bob
  • In the scene where the candy store owner sings "The candyman can......" towards the end he opens up a hatch in the counter to let the children at the candy and if you look at the lower right hand corner of the screen he clearly nails a girl in the chin with the hatch door jerking her head back. - Casey
  • At the very end when you see the capusal going up into the sky, for a quick second you can see the string that is holding it. - Alicia
  • When hey get onto that car machine type thing that sprays soap suds or whatever, as soon as Mrs. Teavee gets sprayed you can hear a very faint voice offstage saying something that resembles "They are wrecking their costumes." - melissa
  • When Verunca Salt is doing her solo among the geese, at the end she's clearly doing a very bad job of lip syncing. - Morrigan
  • When we first see the Wonkavator, the spire is missing from its roof, but mysteriously appears by the time the elevator goes through the glass ceiling. - RJS
  • When Willy hits the button for the wonkavator he clearly misses it. - Jeffr
  • (Audio/visual unsynchronised) During the first Oompa-Loompa number (Augustus Gloop), the lyrics go "WHAT are you at getting terribly fat," but the words animated on the screen read "WHERE are you at..." - RJS
  • (Continuity) When the boat is traveling down the river before they enter the tunnel, the oompa loompas are on one side of the paddle, but when they are traveling quickly through the tunnel the oompa loompas are on the other side of the paddle. - Rachael
  • (Plot holes) Notice how Grandpa Joe is in bed for most of his life, how come he can get up and dance around when he is invited to the Chocolate Factory, but before that when his family is starving he doesn't bother to get up off his butt and get a job?? - rachel
  • (Revealing mistakes) As Violet turns into a blueberry, a hose can be seen hanging from behind her right leg, filling her costume with air. - RJS
  • (Continuity) At the end of the film, we see the inside of Wonka's office, where everything is sawn in half, but the light bulb in the lamp over Wonka's desk is whole, breaking the "half" theme. - RJS
  • (Revealing mistakes) As Violet turned into a blueberry, two bloopers occurred: (1) The light that turned her face blue was reflected in her hair. (2) Behind her right leg, the air hose used to inflate her costume was visible. - RJS
  • (Revealing mistakes) At the end, when Charlie, Mr. Wonka and Grandpa Joe are in the Wonkavator, and Charlie hugs Wonka, you can see Charlie's underwear. Also in Veruca's song when she is with the geese, when she pushes the shopping cart,you can see her skirt fly up and see her underwear too. I didn't find it first. My friend did, as he was being perverted about it. - SCOTT

Commented Goofs

  • When Grandpa Jo gives Charlie his birthday present, Charlie opens it and there is no golden ticket. Could that be because it wasn't a Wonka Bar, but some kind of moon pie looking thing. - KilljoyTheKlown
    • Comment: It wasn't a plain Wonka Bar, but it was some kind of Wonka candy bar. - daner21

Corrected Goofs

  • When Grandpa Joe asks Charlie to get his cane during his song, you can clearly see on the left side, a person's arm handing the cane to Charlie. - LostSoul Inc
    • Correction: Charlie's mother is handing Charlie the cane. (VHS) - kimmyboo

Explained Goofs

  • After Augustus Gloop gets sucked away, and his mother is led away, the characters board a boat. There are only enough seats for the remaining characters. Did Wonka know that two people would be gone by then? Same thing happens when they board the sudsy vehicle. Only enough seats for remaining characters. - Wonka Man
    • Explanation: Obviously, this person doesn’t understand the whole point of the movie! Willy Wonka knew that each of the four “bad” children would be disqualified (Mike Teevee with the Wonkavision, Veruca Salt with the golden geese, etc. DUH! They were set up.). Wonka had his eye on Charlie from the very beginning, and the tour was just a test (“I had to test you Charlie”). Why else would “Slugworth” be present at the exact times the children found the tickets?? - sam
  • When Willy unlocks the musical lock, Mrs. TeeVee says that the song he played was Rachmaninoff. But it isn't! It's The Marriage of Figaro, by Mozart. - RoadDogg
    • Explanation: This is not a goof.  It's intentional and meant as a subtle joke for viewers like RoadDogg who know the difference. Mrs. TeeVee, like the other parents in the film, is dim and a phony.
