The cast of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory appeared on the Today Show this week to celebrate the film’s 40th anniversary, and those of us who’ve been waiting our entire lives for closure on what actually happened to the four naughty children can rest easy because they’re all still alive, plus Augustus has an awesome hat!

Awww, cute! So Mike Teavee was successfully taffy-pulled and Violet had her juice drained and Augustus didn’t drown to death in the chocolate after all? But wait, that means Willy Wonka didn’t actually murder four children because of their respective immature character flaws — does that mean it’s ok for me to watch tv and eat chocolate forever? Cause that’s what I’ve been doing, I’ve just been feeling bad about it this whole time. This really clears things up. Thanks, Today Show!
