Ah, childhood. That time of innocence before bills, boys and work took over our lives. Can't we just go back to the days of candy, cartoons and general period of no worries?

There's arguably no better movie to bring that to life than the 1971 classic Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Tim Burton tried to recreate that magic in 2005, but NOTHING compares to the original. It's so iconic that it transcends generations.
As children, we were captivated by the magic of Willy Wonka's quirky yet incredible world of candy. Charlie's golden ticket was his key (and ours!) to this fantasy land.

Everlasting Gobstopper? Give it here! Delicious, lickable wallpaper? Yum. Chocolate river? We've died and gone to heaven. You really couldn't help but be in awe of it all. And tbh, we were jealous of every one of those nutty but totes lucky kids in the flick.

So where are the actors who played your favorite eccentric characters today?
Check out the slideshow below for the 411 on everyone from Wonka to Mike Teavee.
