You grew up watching them. They come on TV all the time. You can quote them by heart.

But when these flicks came out, they fell flat at the box office!

Sometimes we don't recognize a future classic even when the ads are staring us in the face!

Gene Wilder apparently has some pretty strong feelings about Tim Burton's remake of Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, starring Johnny Depp as ol' Willy boy.

The actor, best known for his role as THE candyman in the 1971 Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory film, came clean in an interview Thursday night, speaking up about Tim's take on the Roald Dahl classic.

He said:

Russell Brand Embraces Willy Wonka And The Beatles For Olympics Closing Ceremony

Filed under: TV NewsMusic MinuteRussell Brand

Russell Brand is the Walrus!

The British comedian represented his country during the London 2012 Olympic Closing Ceremony on Sunday night by channeling Willy Wonka and The Beatles.

He took us into a realm of Pure Imagination by singing (above) a few lines from the 1971 musical adaptation of Roald Dahl's fantasy novel before segueing into a so-so cover of I Am The Walrus.

Not bad, but we would have loved to see his alter ego, Aldous Snow, cover the song with a bit more of a rock star edge.

Or maybe he could have just performed Bangers, Beans & Mash. Ha!

Oompa Loompa Employee Gunned Down After Stabbing Co-Worker At The Chocolate Factory

WIlly Wonka Chocolate Factory Stabbing, Shooting

Oompa Loompa, do-ba-dee-doo /
We've got a wacky story for you.

Working at a chocolate factory sounds amazeballs, right?

Well even the world's second greatest occupation — number one is quality control at a brothel — occasionally leads to workplace stabbings!!

A Cambodian worker at TCHO Chocolate Factory stabbed his colleague with box cutters.

We hated Tim Burton/John August's Charlie and the Chocolate Factory remake TOO, but that's no reason to resort to violence!!

One SFO police officer described Tuesday's unprovoked attack best. He said:

"He started cutting the victim for no apparent reason."

After which, the suspect fled the crime scene with weapon in hand. Eventually the police put a bullet in his chest.

Come on, guy!

Even if you work next to Veruca Salt on an assembly line, stabbing a coworkers is NEVER cool!!
