Role in the filmsEdit

Augustus was portrayed by Michael Bollner in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.

Although he eats constantly, he isn't as big as portrayed in the book or 2005 movie, has proper table manners and is polite to the other kids. He is considerate enough to give an appropriate interview to reporters, and even expresses concern for Wonka by saying that making all the chocolate he and the other kids could eat is going to cost Wonka a fortune in fudge, suggesting that he knows a little about economics and business. Mrs. Gloop rationalizes her son's eating to reporters, saying it was inevitably he would find a Golden Ticket and it is better than being a "hooligan,'' while Mr. Gloop is far more uncouth. When reporters ask for Mr. Gloop's feelings about his son's finding, he thinks it is food and chews the head off the microphone.

At the Chocolate Room, Augustus drinks from, and accidentally falls into, Wonka's chocolate river. He is sucked up a chocolate pipe that leads to the 'Fudge Room', and is nearly turned into a chocolate covered strawberry fudge.

Oompa-Loompa songEdit

1971 versionEdit

Oompa Loompa Doopa-Dee-Doo
I've got a perfect puzzle for you!
Oompa Loompa Doopa-Dee-Dee
If you are wise, you'll listen to me!
What do you get when you guzzle down sweets?
Eating as much as an elephant eats?
What are you at, getting terribly fat?
What do you think will come of that?
I don't like the look of it!
Oompa Loompa Doopa-Dee-Dah
If you're not greedy, you will go far!
You will live in happiness too,
Like the Oompa Loompa Doopa-Dee-Doo!
Doopa-Dee-Doo!

2005 versionEdit

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, the wheels go round and round, and cogs begin to grind and pound;
We boil him for a minute more,
Until we're absolutely sure
Then out he comes! And now! By grace!
A miracle has taken place!
A miracle has taken place!
This greedy brute, this louse's ear,
Is loved by people everywhere!
For who could hate or bear a grudge
Against a luscious bit of fudge?"
