Mr. Wood is the main antagonist of Night of the Living Dummy. He was created by the same evil wizard who made Slappy.
Mr. Wood has a similar appearance to Slappy, except with red hair instead of brown. He also wears a different clothing, including an orange necklace and sneakers.
Mr. Wood carved by an unnamed wizard out of the same coffin wood as his brother, Slappy. Mr. Wood intends to enslave the twin sisters. He eventually got smashed by a steamroller in the book's climax. Thus leaving Slappy to inherit the girls.
He later appears in the Slappyworld series in the Book I am Slappy's evil twin.
- In spite of being the main antagonist of Night of the Living Dummy, Mr. Wood isn't featured in the cover page. Instead, Slappy is the one featured in, in spite that his living state was just confirmed at the end of the book and that he plays the role of main antagonists in the book's sequels.
- In the dream sequence of Slappy's Nightmare, it is revealed that Mr. Wood's first name was Wally.
- Mr. Wood never made an appearance in the Goosebumps TV series, possibly because the book he was featured in was too violent. Interestingly, Slappy is shown in the TV series to have red hair, despite being a brunette in the books, which may suggest that he was originally meant to be Mr. Wood before the episode was cancelled.
