"Would you like some chocolate? Then you should've brought some."
— Augustus teasing Charlie

Augustus Gloop is one of the four naughty children of the 2005 film Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Raised by neglectfully abusive parents who overfeed and do not put him on a diet, Augustus seems to have developed binge-eating disorder, resulting in him being quite overweight at only the age of nine. He has become a gluttonous and sloppy kid from the city of Düsseldorf in Germany.

He is the first of the 5 winners of the Golden Tickets and falls in the chocolate river and is sucked up into a pipe and is brought to the Fudge Room where the Oompa Loompas fish him out of the chocolate. He leaves the factory but is covered with chocolate.

Appearance[]

Augustus has light skin, red hair, and blue eyes. He is more overweight than the other kids and is also around the same build with his mom. He is the tallest child of the 5, along with Charlie.

Background[]

His family runs a butcher shop. He is the first person to find a Golden Ticket; this could be foreshadowing to how he was the first person to leave the factory during the tour. He accidentally ate a portion of the ticket when he found it.

Augustus in the chocolate river

Augustus in the Chocolate River

Augustus is the first to be removed from the tour: while drinking from the Chocolate Room’s Chocolate River, he falls into the river by mistake and is drawn through a pipe to the factory's Fudge Room. His mother is summoned to retrieve him from the mixing-machine.

Augustus is the first to leave the factory, and he is still covered in chocolate. He begins to lick the chocolate on his fingers, but his mother says not to lick the chocolate.

Relationships[]

Willy Wonka - Augustus is a big fan of Willy Wonka's chocolate and was amazed of all the candy that was invented. 

Charlie Bucket - Augustus was very rude to Charlie at the beginning of the film as seen when Willy Wonka leads the tour to the chocolate room, Augustus asks Charlie if he wanted some of his chocolate to which Charlie answers yes. However, Augustus rudely tells Charlie that he should've bought some.

Mrs. Gloop - She is Augustus's mother and dotes on and overfeeds him because she wants him to be just as big and fat as her, however, at the end of the film, he is covered in chocolate and she is telling him not to bite his fingers. This concludes, that she now has sudden worry, and will try to feed her son properly, now.

Mr. Gloop - He is Augustus's father and doesn't really interact with him in the movie, as he has a background appearance in his son's interview, but he is shown making sausages that are probably a special dinner for Augustus, as a congratulations for finding the golden ticket (or it was possible that he was working on a display).

Veruca hates Augustus

Veruca glares at Augustus

Veruca Salt - he never says a word to her but he rudely pushes Veruca out of his way after Veruca got roasted by Willy wonka that a Veruca is a wart, Veruca then glares at Augustus angrily

Trivia[]

  • Compared to the 1971 film, the moment Wonka explains the chocolate river should not be eaten, Augustus falls in. In the 1971 version, Augustus has far more of an opportunity to stop.
  • Him along with Veruca Salt, are the youngest children to go to the factory (both Augustus and Veruca are 9)
  • It is revealed that Augustus doesn't know how to swim when he fell in the Chocolate River. This may be seen as another example of his neglectful parents, as swimming can be seen as a life skill and many people have died from accidental drowning.
  • If Augustus is standing next to the other Winners, it is shown that he is the tallest.
    • The same thing has happened in "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (1971).
  • In the book, he has become thin due to being stuck in the pipe. However, he still remains the same weight in the movie.
  • Augustus is the only child who has only visited one room (The Chocolate Room).
  • Augustus is the only child not to go on the boat ride.
  • He is the first child to find the golden ticket, be eliminated, have his song performed and leave the factory.
  • Despite having been mean to Charlie, Augustus agrees that the chocolate waterfall was beautiful (although Mr. Wonka is the one who said it).
  • Charlie and Veruca is the only child who he interacts with - he does not interact with Violet or Mike at all.
  • He’s the only child to come from a country where English isn’t usually spoken.
  • He and Veruca Salt are the only golden ticket winners to come from Europe.
  • His dad doesn't have any lines in the movie.

Quotes[]

Augustus' song []

Augustus' song is a mambo. It talks about how he is greedy and eats too much.  

Augustus Gloop! Augustus Gloop!
The great big greedy nincompoop!
Augustus Gloop! So big and vile!
So greedy, foul, and infantile!

'Come on!' we cried The time is ripe,
to send him shooting up the pipe!'
But don't dear children be alarmed
Augustus Gloop will not be harmed
Augustus Gloop will not be harmed

Although, of course, we must admit
He will be altered quite a bit
Slowly wheels go round and round
And cogs begin to grind and pound

We'll boil him for a minute more
Until we're absolutely sure
And out he comes, by God by grace
A miracle has taken place
A miracle has taken place!*

This greedy brute, this louse's ear
Is loathed by people everywhere
For who could hate or bear a grudge
Against a luscious bit of fudge?
