I suppose that it was only a matter of time that, with rumours of a new Willy Wonka movie in the making, that some patrons on the Internet would feel it necessary to reveal that Charlie's grandfather was nothing more than a "ratbag industrial spy bastard."
We know this is the quintessential question. After all, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is a well-loved movie based on the wonderful book Charlie and Chocolate Factory. Parents love it, children love it, heck, we even love it.
That does not mean it is perfect.
Our goal is to expose the dark underbelly of the story. To reveal once and for all the truth about the only real villain in the movie (and no, it is not Slugworth). It is Grandpa Joe.
We are going to break down his flaws and point them out with carefully gathered evidence from the canonical sources: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
