Whimsical and Weird W-prompts for the A to Z Blogging Challenge

W is for “Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.”

Roald Dahl’s classic children’s confection, “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory,” captivated movie lovers in 1971, as “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory” hit the silver screen in song and psychedelic colors.

Gene Wilder led the talent roster in the title role, followed by a host of Oompa-Loompas. Peter Ostrum played Charlie Bucket, winning a golden ticket to tour the candymaker’s wondrous world. Inside the pretentious plant, he was joined by a crazy group of kids, ranging from whiny and wand wasteful to all-out wild and wicked.

The “Willy Wonka” cast included Jack Albertson, Michael Bollner, Roy Kinnear, Denise Nickerson, and Ursula Reit.

Watch the original.

Yes, Tim Burton offered his own version of the sugar-laden story in 2005 with “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (starring Johnny Depp). Still, what could be more wonderfully weird and wonky than Wilder’s Willy Wonka?

Watch the promotional trailer, and try not to take a liking to it.



What are you waiting for? Why not write a weathered, woolly, waggish, winsome, wise, or simply worthwhile wonder?

Are you willing?

Where there’s a will, there’s a … OK, you get it.
