Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka
GENE WILDER'S WILLY WONKA
Rank: Klinger BelowMe
Nominated by BelowMe

3rd Place July 09

He is the embodiment of eccentric characters. Who else would actually be able to make the Snozzberries taste like real Snozzberries? He was quite a man, from his purple suit to the taming of a breed of creatures known only to us as Oompa Loompas. He possesses creative genius, with the gift of the Scrumpdiddlyumptious Bar and the ability to frighten small children with chocolate rivers and golden egg-laying geese. He was a Humanitarian with his creation of the Everlasting Gobstopper aimed at allowing poor children to be able to purchase said candy only once and it lasting them a lifetime. He was a skilled vocalist, as evident in his motion picture. Some could even claim that he was a mystic and healer with his ability to inspire the lame to walk again. He has spawned many references in such notable programs as Family Guy, the Simpsons, and The Office. As a philosopher, Mr. Wonka's words of wisdom have inspired millions of lives. "If the good Lord had intended for us to walk, he wouldn't have invented roller skates."  He is truly a notable and legendary character. I mean c'mon, who never wished for a tree that sprouted Gummy Bears?

Specifically though this nomination is of Willy Wonka as portrayed by Gene Wilder, not whatever the book may have led you to dream up, and certainly not the creepy Wonka Johnny Depp gave us.

Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory is such an awful movie that I would have walked out of the theatre even if it was the in-flight movie. reply high five

While I doubt anyone's ready to compare Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory to Citizen Cane, I really didn't think it was that bad of a movie at all. Obviously much of it's awesomeness is due to how it may have fit into your childhood, but as a stand alone story and movie I think it stands up pretty well. reply high five

Yes. Yes. More yes. Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka really has impacted my life. Not only is he a candy maker, he also is very philosophic and eccentric which is awesome. Plus, Gene Wilder is one of the greatest actors of all time. I love it so much, I named my dodgeball team "Wonka's Favorites" and made shirts with Gene's face on it. Great nominee. reply high five

Why thank you my good man. Gene Wilder has pretty much achieved God status in my book, and it all started with Willy Wonka.

"Who can take tomorrow, dip it in a dream, separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream? The candy man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good." reply high five

Oh yeah, I do. No one who works with candy can have teeth that brilliant. Plus his voice is tweaked up to sound like an eleven year old girl. reply high five
