Who you calling dummy, dummy?
~ Slappy the Dummy

Slappy the Dummy is the main antagonist in the children's horror book series Goosebumps, as well as the associated media that followed. He is considered one of the most popular and most evil creatures in the series, as well as being the key factor to the success of one of the series' most popular story arcs: The Night of the Living Dummy Anthology. He is also a major villain in the Horrorland series and the narrator of his own series Slappyland as well as being the main antagonist in most books. He is also the main antagonist of the 2015 film Goosebumps and its sequel. He also appears as a major antagonist in the Goosebumps comics.

In the TV series, he was portrayed by Annick Obonsawin in 3 episodes, and Cal Dodd in 2 others.

Appearance

As described in the books, Slappy has wavy brown hair painted atop his wooden head and freckles dotted along his cheeks. His lips are painted bright red and curl up into a sinister smile; the lower lip however, sports a chip in the corner, giving Slappy's grin an unsettling crooked appearance. His eyes are described as being a cold blue and almost lifelike in appearance. Slappy wears a dark grey, double-breasted suit, with brown leather shoes and a red bow-tie. His shirt is nothing more than a white paint application on the chest, with a collar stapled on the neck.

For the television program, Slappy's appearance was altered from its depiction in the books and the cover artwork. His head no longer appeared to be made out of wood and instead seemed to be constructed out of a plaster-like material. His now-unruly hair was painted auburn, while his freckles were removed, and his eye color changed to green. His dark grey suit was changed to a black tuxedo, with the addition of a real shirt, suspenders, and matching red bow-tie/cumberbund/boutineer combo. He is probably more comedic in the TV version as well.

Biography

Backstory

Slappy was originally created by an unnamed evil sorcerer; alongside Mr. Wood, Slappy was carved by the sorcerer out of the cursed wood of a stolen coffin. After Mr. Wood was destroyed at the end of Night of the Living Dummy, this resulted in Slappy becoming twice as evil.

The only way to make him live is by saying the following incantation: "Karru Marri Odonna Loma Molunnu Karrano" (said to mean "You and I are one now"). Written down on a business card, he keeps the spell in his pocket. Almost every new owner reads out the spell, causing the electricity to act strange for a few seconds.

Slappy keeps himself quiet, as the new owner finds out strange things are happening in the house. Furniture gets moved, things disappear and re-appear. He has a behavior of a very naughty child, or a Poltergeist. He also has the ability to change people into ventriloquist dolls with his green breath. With this breath, he also can animate other dolls and puppets. He is blown into pieces in the Goosebumps television series, in Episode 3: "Night Of The Living Dummy". However, Slappy still survived that. In Slappy's Nightmare, The Streets of Panic Park and The Dummy meets the Mummy  he serves as an anti-herp. He also appears in the Horrorland series and Goosebumps: Most Wanted.

He also has his own series called Slappyworld where is the narrator of the series and sometimes the main villain of some books.
