Augustus Gloop--A fat pig who would eat anything that came within reach or bite

Veruca Salt--A spoiled brat with parents trained to jump at her every scream

Violet Beauregarde--a-gum-chewing gabber with the fastest jaws and the slowest wits around

Mike Teavee--a fiend for television


Charlie Bucket--Our Hero, who is honest and kind, brave and true, and good and ready for the wildest time of his life!
