Mrs teevee is the mother of mike teevee. In the book, she and her husband accompany Mike to the factory. But in the 1971 version, only Mrs. Teavee goes with him, as Willy Wonka's ticket states that each child may bring just one family member with them. Mrs. Teavee seems perfectly happy for Mike to spend all his time watching TV, oblivious to his surroundings. She appears to be somewhat squeamish and easily rattled. In the end, when her son is shrunk small enough to fit in her purse, she swoons and is escorted away by the Oompa-Loompas. She has a non-speaking role in the 2005 re-make, as it is Mr. Teavee who goes with his son to the factory.
