Willy Wonka is a fictional character in Roald Dahl's 1964 children's novel Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
A 1971 film adaptation starring Gene Wilder as Wille Wonka is how Mr. Wonka has hidden five Golden Tickets amongst his famous "Wonka Bars". The finders of these special tickets will be given a full tour of his tightly guarded candy factory as well as a lifetime supply of chocolate. During the tour, Wonka tempts each of the bad children to disobey his orders with something related to their individual character flaws. One by one, each child disappears from the tour until, eventually, Charlie Bucket is the only remaining child. Charlie and Grandpa Joe also succumb to temptation and purposefully sample "Fizzy Lifting Drinks," Mr. Wonka's experimental line of soda products that allows the drinker to fly, only to come close to death (the drinks are too strong, and therefore, not ready).
Wonka informs Charlie that the tour is over, abruptly dismisses him and Grandpa Joe, and disappears into his office without mentioning the promised prize of a lifetime supply of chocolate. They both go into Wonka's office to confront him, where Grandpa Joe asks about the prize, but Wonka tells him that Charlie does not get it because he broke the rules, and angrily refers to the forfeiture clause of the contract signed by Charlie and the other ticket holders. Charlie's part in the "theft" of Fizzy Lifting Drinks which he and Grandpa Joe drank earlier means that he violated the contract and therefore, he receives nothing. Wonka dismisses them with a furious "Good Day Sir!". Grandpa Joe angrily berates him for destroying the hopes of his grandson, but Wonka stops him by losing his patience and telling him in frustration that he said "Good Day". Grandpa Joe vows to get revenge on Wonka by selling the Everlasting Gobstopper to Slugworth (Wonka's rival), but Charlie decides to return the gobstopper to Wonka's desk. Wonka joyfully tells him he's passed his test, reinstates his grand prize, apologizes for putting Charlie through that test, and reveals that "Slugworth," who had been spying on the kids, was actually an employee of his named "Wilkinson." The trio enter the great glass elevator and go high to the sky where Wonka reveals that Charlie, as well as Grandpa Joe and his whole family, will move into the factory, and Charlie will take over its business when Wonka retires, reminding Charlie not to forget what happened to the man who got everything he ever wanted: "He lived happily ever after."
