Actually he would be a good guy. In the Tim Burton adaptation he's not working for Wonka. He steals ingredients from Wonk's factory to make his own candy witch gets the factory closed down. So he really would turn out to be the good guy i Wonka was evil.
I love t this. when I was young like 5 years old Willy Wonka was the creature of my nightmares. He always turned everyone I loved into candy because I said no to being his hair. When Wonka showed up I knew I was going to be dragged into a nightmare and there was nothing I could do. In a strange way, I really relate to this image. To this day I can't watch Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory. but I love charlie in the chocolate factory.
