Continuity mistake: At the nut factory, when Mr. Salt is there with the ladies, and he is walking up to the podium, the microphone is facing towards where he is walking from. Then in the next shot when he is at the podium facing the ladies, the mic changes direction and is centered, facing him.

Then after it cuts away and back, she is headed towards the middle of the line, but then she is headed for the last one again. When the squirrels jump her, she is about 1/4 of the way down the line, starting from the ladder.

Continuity mistake: When the factory gates open for the contest winners, the shadows in the courtyard change between shots. [This is a reference to the first film in which the shadows shift a lot. It is also shown in other parodies of the original film, eg, the Family guy episode "Wasted talent". Still a valid mistake.]

Continuity mistake: When Mike Teavee has been sent by television, Wonka is pointing to the screen when the camera is showing outside the screen, but a split second later, when the camera is showing inside the screen, both of Wonka's hands are leaning on his cane.

Continuity mistake: The tire track of the rightmost truck (in the top-down shot) is completely wrong. All 5 of the trucks were parked parallel. Besides, we can see only one pair of tire tracks per truck, but when a truck turns, the path the front wheels move on has a larger radius than the one the back ones move on thus creating two tracks. All this was OK just a shot before.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Violet and her mother are talking about the trophies, the trophies in the trophy cabinet behind them changes between the first shot and the second shot.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Agustus Gloop gets sucked into the chocolate tube, the inside of the tube is covered in chocolate. But in the far away shot, when you see the tube being retracted, it is perfectly clean inside and out.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning, where it is showing how the Wonka chocolate bars are made, we see trays holding twelve pieces of chocolate. When it shows the trays on the conveyor belt, each tray holds fourteen pieces of chocolate.

Continuity mistake: After the boat ride, when the boat settles in front of the door to the Inventing Room, Charlie's hair is windswept from the ride. In the subsequent close-up scene, however, his hair is suddenly kempt again.

Continuity mistake: After Augustus Gloop falls into the chocolate river, he gets sucked into the current of the pipe. At one point in the scene, a yellow bush seen in the background is moved back and forth by the current, but after the next cut, it is seen motionless.

Continuity mistake: The Chocolate Room features a chocolate fall, which had to be technically enlarged to fit the room. In one shot, right after the people enter the room, however, the chocolate fall is shown only being half of its actual size.

Mistakes

In the scene in the glass elevator, when Mike Teavee wants to push a button, he presses the TV Room button. The elevator stops going down and immediately moves horizontally. The characters within the elevator are thrown against the wall from the sudden change. However, they are thrown against the wall that is in the direction the elevator is now moving, instead of the opposite wall as they should have been.

Trivia

The many Oompa Loompas in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory are all played by the same man - Deep Roy. They used CGI to duplicate him. He would do a ton of different dance moves so when it's all put together, it would look like there were a bunch of different Oompa Loompas.
