Willy Wonka (Characters)

"It's like, you know, what Willy Wonka would be like if he owned a professional baseball team."

Willy Wonka is the fictitious and bizarre chocolate factory owner in Roald Dahl's children's books, which were made into several movies. His candy factory is staffed by Oompa Loompas, foreign dwarves who work under sweatshop-like conditions for cacao beans. Duncan sees similarities between Woody Goodman and this confectionary giant. Is it Woody's boyish charm, his slightly pretentious friendliness, or is Duncan simply jonesin' for a king-sized chocolate bar?
