Veruca Salt is a major antagonist in Tom and Jerry: Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.
She was voiced by Emily O'Brien.
She lives with a wealthy family in England. Her father owns a peanut shelling business company. She is the second ticket winner (though she had her father's workers shell the chocolate bars to find it for her) and is the third kid to get the boot from Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory Tour. Veruca and her father manage to escape the furnace right before it ignites while trapping Tom inside. Veruca demands to be taken home and have her father make her a different chocolate factory, but Mr. Salt, having finally had enough of Veruca's spoiled and selfish behavior, refuses and decides to teach her some discipline as the near-death experience seems to have finally gotten to him.
Pampered and spoiled like a siamese cat, Veruca Salt is a very spoiled rotten, bratty, jealous, greedy and selfish little brute who is always screaming, "l WANT lT!"
She has wavy brown hair and fair skin, soft pink lips and rosy cheeks.
Before she went into the factory, she wore a yellow sweater and a brown dress.
She also wears a long-sleeved red dress with a black belt, black buttons, white-collar and white cuffs, white tights, and black Mary Janes shoes.
- In the original film, the character was played by Julie Dawn Cole.
- A band is named after her.
