Early Life[edit | edit source]
Violet Beauregarde was born in January 22, 1953, to Sam and Scarlett Beauregarde she was a bratty little girl who chews gum to keep concentration. She would chew the same piece of gum for months. She topped her friend's world record by chewing the same piece of gum. Violet Beauregarde was the third of five children around the world. The ticket allowed her to take her and her parents to the Wonka Chocolate Factory, where she continued to chew the same record-breaking gum. During the tour, she asked many questions about gum.
Violet's Accident[edit | edit source]
Violet Beauregarde was in the Inventing Room with the rest of the tourists (except Augustus Gloop, and his parents, the former of which was sucked through a giant pipe). Willy Wonka was showing off his latest experiment, Magic Chewing Gum, which was a filling three-course dinner in the form of a stick of gum. Violet snatched the piece of gum from Wonka, ignoring his warning that there were problems with it. While she continued to chew the gum passing the first two courses, her parents cheered her on while Mr. Wonka and Grandpa Joe urged her to heed Wonka's warning.
The gum started the third course, which was delicious. Violet then began to smile and become very nice because the gum was so good it made her happy. fart

Later, she is seen going with her parents to a truckload of tasty gumbawlz.
Films[edit | edit source]
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (1971)[edit | edit source]
In the 1971 film, Violet Beauregarde lived in Miles City, Montana. Violet was depicted much like the Violet in the novel, except she was more into getting attention and keeping the camera on herself. She would often get angry at people, even her own father, for talking to the camera. Her fate remained the same as Violet's in the novel, except it is not known. She was portrayed by Denise Nickerson.
Family[edit | edit source]
In this film, only her father, Sam Beauregarde was taken to the factory. Her fat, disgusting, pig of a father was portrayed by Leonard Stone as an emotional man who was always cheery, worrisome, or angry. He was into grabbing. Sam Beauregadre was also known as "Square-Deal Sam," a local politician and car dealer, wanted to use Violet's fame to advertise his dealership. This only angered her. Likewise, she was short-tempered with Verruca Salt's demands. Her mother appeared briefly in the middle of Violet's interview, trying to control Violet, only to be hushed up by Violet herself.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005)[edit | edit source]
In the 2005 film, Violet Beauregarde is a bratty, rude, yet ambitious winner who's set on being better than everyone else. She has 263 awards to show for her skills, including a trophy with dentures on it which she won for making the gum-chewing record, and like Augustus, she is also seen being rude to Charlie—it is because he has no hair or money. In the film, her fate was the same as Violet from the older film, but she was much more flexible haha. She remained sweet and nice. Violet was portrayed by AnnaSophia Robb, who is famous for roles in other film adaptations of novels, such as Because of Winn-Dixie and Bridge to Terabithia. Violet swells up big, growing. Significantly bigger than the violet in the original movie.
Family[edit | edit source]
In this film, the only family shown was her mother and father (both portrayed by Missi Pyle). Her mother often fed into her daughter's desire to be a winner and was possibly the main benefactor of Violet's pride. She even complained Violet wouldn't be able to "compete". Despite her, Violet is actually pleased since she becomes more flexible. Violet's father appeared multiple times throughout the film, commenting at times on the new shape of his daughter.
