"All I've got at home is one pony and two dogs and four cats and six bunny rabbits and two parakeets and three canaries and a green parrot and a turtle, and a silly old hamster! I WANT a SQUIRREL!"
— Veruca during the events of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Veruca Salt is the second Golden Ticket winner from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. She is a bratty girl in the Warner Bros. films, but she is half bratty and half sleepy in Barney and the Rocko Squad.

In the Warner Bros. films, her father, whom she refers to as "Daddy", is Henry Salt. She was eliminated when she went down a garbage chute due to being a bad egg (Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory) and a bad nut (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). Her pets are as follows:

  • One pony
  • Two dogs
  • Four cats
  • Six bunny rabbits
  • Two parakeets
  • Three canaries
  • A green parrot
  • A turtle (presumably the Great Meteorite)
  • A hamster

In Barney and the Rocko Squad, her father, while still being referred to as "Daddy", is Rock Buddy. She also likes sleeping, just like the other Barney and the Rocko Squad girls. She may even fall asleep before she even tells Rock Buddy what she wants! If she tries to get what she wants but falls asleep before she tells Rock Buddy what she wants, she will say "Daddy, I want a-" and start snoring.

Since Julia Winter is no longer a child actress, Veruca's voice actress in Barney and the Rocko Squad is Evie's voice actress from Nick Jr.'s Mike the Knight - Erin Pitt.
