Charlie and the Chocolate Factory marks the first time since The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993) that Elfman contributed to a film score using written songs and his vocals. He announces a competition to reveal all the secrets and magic of his factory to five lucky children, who find a golden ticket hidden in one of the chocolate bars. Depp and Burton derived their Willy Wonka from children's television show hosts such as Bob Keeshan from Captain Kangaroo, Fred Rogers, and Al Lewis from The Uncle Al Show, and Depp also took inspiration from various game show hosts.

Based on the book by Roald Dahl, while visiting the chocolate factory of the eccentric Willie Wonka, five children get a chance to receive five golden tickets, each wrapped within a candy bar.
