Augustus Gloop, a large German boy who takes after his gluttonous father, was possibly the easiest target for Wonka. He’s already overweight and shows no constraint when it comes to eating similar to his father, who eats almost as much as he does. This is considered an oedipal complex because his parent’s support these habits, while everyone else who sees him, sees him as a pig, slob, and corpulent. It is this oedipal complex that leads him to fall into the chocolate river and be sucked up by the tube to what we can assume is his death Veruca Salt is the definition of a spoiled brat. She’s so accustomed to getting exactly what she wants, when she wants it. Her father, the owner of a factory of his own, has obviously done well for himself, routinely pulling out his checkbook to give Veruca whatever she wants. He even closes his factory and instructs his workers to do nothing but open boxes and boxes of the Wonka bars in order to give Veruca that Golden Ticket. It is this oedipal complex that leads to her death in the golden egg room after Wonka refuses to sell her one of his golden egg laying geese. She has a fit, trashing the room, then climbs up on the “eggdicator” and is deemed a “bad egg”, so she is sent to the furnace. Then, in attempt to save his daughter, Mr. Salt is deemed a “bad egg” as well and is sent to the furnace with his daughter.Violet Beauregarde, on the surface level, only has an addiction of chewing gum. While it’s not inherently wrong to chew gum, obviously, just more of an annoyance than anything else; it’s her arrogance and superiority complex that’s the true culprit. In her case, it seems as if she’s been neglected, and uses any opportunity she can to show off or rebel. Her father is a politician, but is more known for his Car Dealership. Even when Violet wins the Golden Ticket, he tries marketing himself. It is this oedipal complex that leads her to go against Wonka’s instructions and chew the three course meal gum. The gum leads to her blowing up into a blueberry, so Wonka sends her to the juicing room but states that she could explode. We do not know what ends up happening to her, but we can assume that the outcome is not a good one.Mike Teavee has an issue with reality. His sole reliance on the worlds portrayed on TV gives him a skewed view of what the world really holds. His parents even make sure he has TV Dinners ready so he doesn’t have to sit at the table and eat dinner, he can just watch shows. It is this oedipal complex that leads him to mess with the television chocolate even though Wonka previously stated that he is still trying to workout some of the issues with the concept. He also stated that once when they were experimenting with the camera only half a bar of chocolate materialized. In the end of the scene Mike is sent to the TV successfully however, he is now miniature and there is no talk of the process being able to be reversed.Charlie Buckets, the protagonist of the story, too is tempted by a flaw which is entitlement. Not because he is rich or has power, but rather because he’s poor, he grew up poor, and he feels like he’s meant to find that Golden Ticket. This line of thinking is not his fault. It is Grandpa Joe who makes sure Charlie feels entitled to it, telling him he deserves it more than everyone else because he wants it more than everyone else. Charlie never really shows that he feels entitled, but Grandpa Joe certainly does. Since Charlie’s father is out of the picture, most likely because of the fact that he would have to take care of his family and his wife’s parents and uncle, it is Grandpa Joe who is his biggest role model. It’s the mentality that someone else should take care of him. It is also Grandpa Joe who talks him into sneaking away to try the fizzy drinks that almost lead to their death, but they luckily find a way to escape and continue the tour. However, Wonka finds out about this so at the end of the tour when Charlie is supposed to get the lifetime supply of chocolate he decides that Charlie will get nothing. Infuriated, Grandpa Joe suggests to Charlie that they should give the everlasting gobstopper to Mr. Slugworth. After this Charlie decides to give the gobstopper back to Mr. Wonka. With this action Mr. Wonka has a change of heart and reveals that the actual prize is the factory and the real purpose of the tour was to find someone worthy enough to succeed him. Since he is the only child that has overcome this oedipal complex and ultimately chooses to think for himself and not to follow his ID, Mr. Wonka picks him to be his heir meaning Charlie and his family can move into the factory immediately.This shows the reward for not following one’s ID. This is why it is a very common movie to show to kids because it shows that you get rewarded for doing the right thing even though this movie has several things that would be considered morbid or strange.
