Sadistic, Evil or just plain SCARY ?
Some describe him as DRACULA with charm. There has never been a scarier ventriloquist character than Slappy the Dummy. He was created by author R.L. Stine who claims that Slappy was one of his favorite creations. Stine has been quoted as saying, “I love writing Slappy because he is so rude”. Slappy was the featured villain in several Goosebumps books and television shows.
Slappy caused problems wherever he went, mostly for the child who owned him. He would come to life when the magic words, “Karru marri odonna loma molonu karrano”, were said. Then he tried his best to take control of his owner and everyone else. Usually, the child ended up in all kinds of trouble. Who’s going to believe “the dummy came to life and did it!”
According to the book, “Bride of the Living Dummy,” a sorcerer carved Slappy out of coffin wood. Slappy was always seen wearing an old fashioned suit and bow tie. According to the books he had super-human strength.
Also, in the book, “Bride of the Living Dummy”, Slappy fell in love with a girl named Jillian. But a doll named Mary-Ellen wants Slappy for herself. There’s double trouble with two living dolls creating havoc to get what they want.
If you’re looking for a scary ventriloquist figure to add to your act or your collection then look no further. Slappy is your man. He’s not the best figure to use with preschool audiences, but school-age children will love him.
Buy Me If You Dare! I Promise To Be Rude and Scary.
Slappy’s goal in life was to find a slave to serve him. Usually he felt the child who owned him would be perfect for this purpose. He played sadistic, evil pranks on anyone and everyone.
His low, raspy voice is an important part of his scary character. When you’re choosing a voice for your ventriloquist figure, remember that it will set the stage for his personality.
