This lost scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was filmed, but in the end left on the cutting room floor. The script for the scene is available to the public in the 2001 book "Pure Imagination". The scene is about a hiker who lost his group on a mountain and then he sees a guru. He asks the guru "What is the meaning of life?". Instead of answering the question, the guru asks "Do you have Wonka bar?" The hiker says he does, and that it's the last of his food. He gives it to the guru anyway. When the guru looks inside and sees no golden ticket, he throws the bar across the cave. The hiker asks again "What is the meaning of life?" And the guru answers "Life is a disappointment."

The script for the scene is on YouTube from the user Josh Hoover. However, the film of the scene itself is lost. It has never been seen by the public in theaters or on home video.

It was supposed to be funny but when shown to test audiences, very few people laughed and I don't blame them.

And yet the Wonka company went on to print this joke on their candy: http://i.imgur.com/ZQtdGYr.jpg

I agree that this is a bizarre scene to include, but given that it was filmed and shown to test audiences it surely exists in some capacity. I'm interested in seeing it.

Not media (and not official at that) so not worthy of an article.

What do you count as media? There are a lot of articles about deleted scenes on this Wiki.

Why was the nut room with squirrels in it cut from this film? I don't know why.

Because there was no way to easily do something as complex as that with 70s special effects.
