I remember seeing this guy when I was a kid at the Children's Emporium at the Minnesota State Fair back in 1988, along with a guy who called himself "The Carfoonist" (who I actually was a bit of a pen-pal with back when I wanted to be a cartoonist).

I don't think I like this regeneration of Wonka; his companions seem a little shitty too.
Bort
Perhaps this is the Master? I always wondered how he blew through so many regenerations; perhaps some of them were spent posing as a confectioner with a factory of death. The Oompa-Loompas are clearly victims of a tissue compression accident.

Keep in mind, we never actually saw what Slugworth looked like...

I've wondered about the guy Wonka got to impersonate Slugworth. It's not like Wonka to, you know, interact with an ordinary everyday person. My theory is that he's a robot/golem made of candy that looks exactly like a human and was created so that Wonka would have something resembling a normal friend. Perhaps he looks like the real Slugworth because Wonka wished he could be friends with a fellow high-profile chocolatier instead of enemies.

This Wonka looks more like the sinister head of a travelling carnival.

This guy is now a much sought after warm-up comedian for sitcom audiences. The other video I posted as an article with his story, and it's fascinating. He played Wonka for twenty years, had a TV kiddie show, did a bunch of sleazy "how to pick up chicks with magic tricks" videos, and seems like a cool guy.

But the thing I notice is that Johnny Depp definitely took his characterization in the Tim Burton remake from this guy. He's got a weird, lounge act way of talking that I just find creepy.

I like this sleazy man, and I'm glad he was a success.

Wonka's wedding ring's kind of breaking the illusion for me
BiggerJ
He successfully temporarily isolated the concept of candy and married it. Fickelgruber forever regretted asking the question that began, "If you like candy so much..."

Bort
Yeah, it's like in the host segment of "Horror of Party Beach" where the Roman lady describes Mike Nelson as "average", and he goes into ladies' man mode, while wearing a wedding ring. Granted, he's actually married to the Roman lady in real life, but it still weirds me.

... Just imagine Mike Nelson as the Willy Wonka magician guy. I feel like we've been deprived of something special.

The Alliance Of Magicians took care of him quietly after this.
