Charlie and the Chocolate Factory began as a children's book by Roald Dahl in 1964, and has since been adapted several times, most notably with 1971's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the 2005 film adaptation, and a musical. The book's sequel Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator has yet to have an adaptation within a visual medium. It tells the story of Charlie Bucket, a poor boy who wins a contest to tour the factory of Willy Wonka, an eccentric candy maker.
The fandom seems to be centered around the adaptations, rather than the original books.
Blueberry Inflation is a form of inflation kink that appears to have originated from the CATCF franchise. In the story it happens to the character of Violet Beauregard, when she chews an untested gum. It involves a character being inflated into a blueberry, turning purple in the process, as they are filled up with blueberry juice. Sometimes this is triggered through chewing a piece of gum (as in the films and book), other times it will be something else.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory appears to be one of the only sources of this trope in source texts, given the very specific nature of the kink, and is highly likely its origin.
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory
The first adaptation has produced several memes, particularly around the character of Wonka himself. Condescending Wonka might be the most well-known, though You Get Nothing! You Lose! Good Day, Sir! is another Wonka-centric meme.
