Mr. Teavee is the father of Mike Teavee. In the older 1971 film, Mrs.Teavee goes to the factory with him. Mr. Teavee is a high school geography teacher, as stated in the movie when Willy Wonka mentions Oompa Loompas and Mr. Teavee claims they do not exist and there is no such place as Loompaland. He has big nerd glasses and is tall. He is sarcastic but still finds some sense in Willy Wonka when Mike Teavee questioned the Television Chocolate in the Television Room and Mr. Teavee said "Calm down Mike, I think Mr. Wonka knows what he's talking about". Mike ignores him and gets shrunken.
