Favourite fictional character #3

Favourite Fictional Character is a weekly meme by the blog : It's where we discuss our favourite fictional characters from books, tv, movies.

Willy Wonka! 

Willy Wonka from Charlie and The Chocolate Factory is this week's pick.   The Gene Wilder version not the creepy Johnny Depp version.  I loved Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - I believe it was the first if not one of the first chapter books I ever read and I was mesmerised by the idea of winning tickets to a tour of a chocolate factory and then being gifted the entire factory. 

Willy Wonka was eccentric and funny and delightfull in the way he dealt with the children and was so nonchalant about the different mishaps which befall the children one by one. 

He had all the joy of a child himself and he owned a chocolate factory.

  1. Love him! Johnny Depp didn't do a half-bad job but Gene Wilder is & always will be Wonka. I recently wrote about some of Wonka's literary quotes in my review of Oscar Wilde's Importance of Being Earnest. Stop by & check it out if you're game :o) Lovely blog, by the way. I'll start following.
