The Despicable Wizard of the Chocolate Factory

Whilst on the LIRR, Tom and I started bouncing ideas off of each other; what if we made a mash-up between Despicable Me, Wizard of Oz, and Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory? We came up with a few plots and here is the outcome. Picture this:

Munchkins vs. Oompa Loompas vs. Minions. Cue class struggles, interracial relationships, broken alliances, and poisonous candy. Lots and lots of poisonous candy.

The mystery behind the Horse of Many Colors is debunked. In a mission to take over Emerald City, Gru (the guy from Despicable Me) used Gobstoppers to lure a horse. The plan was to charge the city and take over the position of Wizard. Unfortunately, the horse just started changing colors and this only drew more attention to it. The citizens, marveling at the pretty colors, ended up taking it and making it their carriage horse to draw more tourists.

Willy Wonka had gone to retire in Oz, and in a twist of fate, met Dorothy, a small-town Kansas girl. She had put out a classified ad: SWF seeks SWM, any age. Likes long skips on brick roads. Must love dogs. Meet me in the poppy field.

Long story short, they met, he liked her simple-mindedness, and she liked the prospect of getting out of her dumpy town.

Together they seek to reclaim the chocolate factory. However, Charlie’s new army of flying monkeys (they needed work now that the witch was gone) won’t even let him in the door. So he seeks help from Dr. Nefario {other guy from Despicable Me} who ends up falling in love with Dorothy, too. Who knew she was such a hottie?Dorothy

Who will end up victorious? More importantly, whom will Dorothy choose? And, what would a Minchkin (cross between Munckin and Minion) look like?

Go ahead, leave me a comment!
